    A decent thrash tone with an Ibanez TBX150H and Dano Fish + Chips EQ (Using pics because the EQ is pretty sensitive and I can't nail it exactly due to the hard-to-read panel :lol: )
    This is on the drive channel, X-mode is on.

    Here'd a good mid 80's Metallica tone that still sounds "scooped" even with some added mids to make it more live friendly. I call it the "Double Scoop"

    Blackstar HT20
    --------------
    Gain: 12:00
    PreVolume: 2:00
    Bass: 10:00
    Mid: 2:00
    Treble: 2:30
    ISF: 1:00

    Tube Screamer
    -------------
    Drive, Tone, Level all at 12:00

    MXR 6 band EQ - this is where the "Double Scoop" comes in to play
    -------------------------------------------------
    100... 3
    200... -2
    400... 5
    800... 5
    1.6K.. -5
    3.2K.. 0
    ---------------

    referring to an older post in this thread, would putting a mxr 10 band eq into fx loop be better than running it as is?

    vicious/life-eating/Earth-raping/murderous chainsaw disemboweler.

    Crate Flex-Wave head
    gain channel, all knobs at 12 o'clock, gain cranked full
    Behringer HM-300, knobs maxed out, except gain on 5% and Level at 12 o'clock.
    Zoom 9150 valve with ZNR to clean up the inherently noisy sound (which is to be expected and desired to a degree), as well as for lead/clean tones.

    2 and a half year old Ernie Ball Power Slinky ropes noosed around a modified BC Rich IT Beast tuned baritone. (B-standard, 25.5 scale) SH-8 Invader law givers.

    Lead tone is similar to Jay Fernandez' lush, singing lead tone on Brutality's "These Walls Shall Be Your Grave" from their "Screams Of Anguish" album. Clean is a basic EQ job with reverb and chorus and the Zoom's inherent preamp for lead, which I douse with a bit of reverb and chorus as well. Wonderful tones but not the highlight of my sound, therefore settings are not included. The rhythm tone is king here.

    You can reverse the amp and HM's gain settings (amp gain on 5-10% with the HM's gain cranked full) for a more "open" sound
    with accentuated mids--great to do in a live setting as it cures the issues
    inherent with a scooped tone while playing live and at the same time giving the
    bassist--and kick drums--much needed sonic space. This rhythm tone is suprisingly VERY dynamic, incredibly responsive to your pick attack.

    The Zoom is amazing, the $25 you can expect to pay for one is ricockulous.

    I know the 50w JVM doesn't get much love here, but has anyone managed to get a decent tone out of that one? It seems that whatever I do it still sounds too...well, rock 'n' roll. I also have the Engl e530 and it's a lot more 'evil' even with the knobs all at 12.

    James Hetfield settings ???????
    Wich period?
    1983-1985 -> Marshall Mod
    1986- 1989 -> Mesa MarkII
    1990-> Ada Mesa Triaxis
    Load period ?
    St Anger Period -> Krank + Dual Recto
    Death Magnetic -> Diezel + Mesa
    So many sounds, presets are an enigma, James has his little secrets
    Dowload Metallica Impulses Cab , it's a good start with LePou LeCto, and build your sound, you don't play like Hetfield, don't expect having the same sound which cost a big pile of money btw. ;)
    If you want a 'Tallica Black classic sound I think the Recto with Ada Préamp and Eq will do the job and don't forget a heavy guitar ( LP, Explorer...) with the EMG81...with a strat even a Roadking won't help you
    Pic Attack always like a butcher, DOWN DOWN DOWN at 220bpm :)
