My first 8 string came today. Its a schecter Damien Elite 8. EMG 808 pickups, 26.5 scale, Schecter thru birdge, 1 tone, 1 volume, 3 way switch. Only thing is I cant get it to sound how I want. Ive had my Ibanez 7 string for about a year, that was fairly easy to get a decent tone with. I've tried all kinds of things to get the Schecter sounding decent but its going nowhere, the f# just takes over everything. I want to get both the dirty and clean sounds similar to that of Tosin Abasi. I've boosted the mids, cut down the lows, added more into the high end but nothing will happen. At the moment im going through an MXR fullbore metal into a Marshall MG15. I think the amp might be the problem, I dont think the solid state 15W can handle the lower range. can anyone offer me any advice?
