I was fooling around with the song "White Man". I can't play it very well yet, just the chords and such in no real order, but I believe I got the tone right. What do you think?

I think your setup needs to be addressed. Personally, when I put the BM Pedal through my Valvetronix AD50 (Same family as AD30) it sounds decent going through the Tweed4x10 model. But then switching out the BM pedal for a treble booster and the AC30tb amp model...it's in a completely different league. Much, much nicer.
My advice is to either ditch the pedal or the amp. These two don't seem to work that well for me. It's a personal feeling I have for this particular setup. Seems to choke the high-end and sometimes leaves it feeling bloated and squashed.However, on certain BM pedal settings, it definitely works with this particular amp. But otherwise, I think it's best left to the standard guitar>booster>amp - setup. Definitely invest in a good booster for your BM guitar and AD30 amp. I've used this particular setup before and it's not bad at all. Hmm...maybe get an AD50 too :P
