    Hey guys i need help trying to find the right settings for that bulb/periphery tone.

    the Chain im running is:

    GUITAR--->ISP DECIMATOR--->BOSS CS2 COMPRESSOR--->TS9 TUBESCREAMER--->BOSS NS2 NOISE SUPPRESSOR--->PEAVEY 6534+--->TRAYNOR CAB WITH GREENBACKS.

    The guitar im using is a ibanez prestige s2170fb with a crunchlab (bar facing the bridge)

    if someone could help point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated!

    Instafix..... turn the mid knob all the way up and turn the bass and treble down.

    :lol:

    Umm.... basically there is a thread for this I believe and all the tone is/was is bumped mids out the ass.

    Do you need that compressor? Greenbacks probably don't help your cause. What tuning are you in? Cut lows, boost mids, pick hard... this will help you sound like you are trying to sound like him.

    Noisegates don't help that much, even while you're playing you can hear little things you wouldn't hear normally. But then I'm a big fan of little gain even for death metal.

    True.


    Now we should just make a plan so that OP can acquire Misha's hands.

    I seem to get pretty close with my 5150 at:

    Lead channel
    Gain: 3 (out of ten, not o'clock)
    Bass: 4
    Mids: 6
    Treble: 5

    TS-808
    Drive: 0
    Tone: 6
    Level: 8-10

    Resonance and presence at around the mid point.

    I also have an NS-2 at maximum threshold, minimum decay :lol:

    Lots of mids, a healthy amount of treble, and not much bass at all. Not a TON of gain, but enough for a hot signal, and mess with the noise gates for a quick cutoff.

    EDIT: Technique. PICK HARD. Palm mute HEAVILY. Tap using hammer-ons for EVERYTHING, rather than pulling off with your last tap to go back down.
