Which settings are good for getting a funky sound? And what guitar/amp brands are mainly played by funk players?

I'd say fender for great clean sounds. If you want some really light distortion Fender has that too, and heavier and you'd need a pedal though.

Otherwise, if you want pedals I'd say the first thing to get is a decent Wah wah.

i mainly play steel string acoustic but i find you can still get a funky sound without using any effects by:
1. sliding to 7th or 9th barre chords
2. watching this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMdU_lS3Izk&feature=related the following video in this series gives some good tips for funk strumming
3. having a loose wrist and relaxed posture
4. listening to lots of James Brown

to be honest i learned most of this stuff from that series of videos so go check em out.

stay funky
