    I've been working on this mix for a while, trying to find some tones that sound good. I'm a big fan of Sevendust and the sounds on their "Home" record. Any advice on how I can improve this mix? I used a Mike Mushok Baritone in A#.

    The biggest area of improvement I hear is with your drum mix. It's very dry. The drums as a whole could use some parallel compression and reverb to make them really punchy but also add space to them. You could really boost up that sub region on the kick. The snare doesn't have that snap or crack. Cymbals aren't harsh and overly loud which is awesome. Your balance isn't too bad either. When you have multiple guitar parts, your drums get drowned out which leads me to assume that maybe you need some additional busses to control your gain staging. As far as your guitar tones, they are just fine. Hope that helps!
