    sigh.

    So my friend got a Fender Mustang V head, and its not bad but idk.
    The clean tones sound nice. But any kind of Hi-Gain amp is really Shitty. All I want is a tight metal tone, if anyone that has this head or any experience with it please help me.

    If your friend bought it, why do you have do use it? Why don't you get a head that's better for metal?

    I'm pretty sure that Fender has software you can download to better tweak the settings on those amps. (beyond what's possible with the controls on the panel of the amp itself) You and your buddy could try that. I'm pretty sure all the Mustang series are like that. You can connect them via USB and do a lot more in-depth adjustments. Presets and stock tones on a lot of modeling amps are usually pretty meh.
    I'd suggest starting there. It might take a while to tweak everything to where it gets closer to what youy're looking for. I've seen some reviews/comments on those amps where people spent the time and really dug what they could get them to do.

    peavey vypyr's are pretty damn good modeling amps, way more organic gain...

    idk what this thread is about bcuz u where kinda vague "tight metal tone"

    in that case, guitar>isp decimator>808 OD>5150

    Disclaimer: The 5150 gets tight, but it's also very fizzy. Something I could never cope with when I had my many iterations of 5150s

    Because he's a beginner and wanted me to set up a few tones for him, I have a few clean, and low gain 80's tones, but for hi-gain I cant seem to get it right.

    I actually found the high-gain amp models on the Vypyr VIP were tighter than the real thing. Not chuggadjent tight, but tighter than a stock 5150.
