Just get the Fractal. Misha's live tone seemed to be much different from what they used to record the first record to my ears: higher-gain, brighter, tighter and more processed (ironic given that it was a real rig vs a modeling unit) owing to the three gates and 4-knob Keeley. Definitely a cool sound but certainly not what was on the first record; I remember being surprised at how low-gain and almost vintage-y the tone sounded at times when I first heard the record. Also I did a quick search and found out that it indeed was the German cab (the bit about it possibly being the Metal cab came from some rando on the Fractal forums, so forgive me... I wish I could find the post and reply and tell him that I was right, lol): https://sevenstring.org/threads/per...ything-periphery.121110/page-129#post-2383497 Not sure if you're being sarcastic or not, but in case you're serious, you only need a high-mid boost in front of the amp to get the attack and tone, and 30dB is way too much in either case, not to mention the fact that the TS with the high tone/low drive setup takes care of this.
