    Hey everybody, I'm working on my band Necrominger's first full length at the moment, we have a few songs with clean intros (i really love clean guitar in thrash metal songs) but i have absolutely no experience with clean tones, I was just wondering if someone could help me out getting an evil...

    Hi guys, i'm new here and I had a simple question that i couldn't find the answer to. I've recently started to record some guitar riffs and I've noticed that the rhythm tracks don't have any 'colour', for the lack of a better term. I've been looking at some instructional videos online from bands...

    http://ghostsauce.net/random/Soulfire.m4a Not bad eh for a low gain amp. Amp volume was at 6.5, and attenuated to tv volume. Just my PRS singlecut, class 5, and an SM57. Anybody else use these amps? This is about as heavy as they get without pedals but dang I love it. For everything else I've...

    I just posted a rhythm tone, but it looks like there are near-zero other ones. I used to be a "tone-hoarder" and wouldn't share mine, but now that I am in better company here, that's changed. I guess my original apprehension to share was the possibility of someone in a happy-mouth...

    https://soundcloud.com/sleeplessuk/footsteps I'm really stuck with getting the guitar tones right for my band. We're recording an ep for the summer. We've got in contact with a re-amping service which is a possibility. We're using a heavily moded strat rosewood fret board, vintage 67 semours...

    Well, this is my only preamp until I can save up for the Kemper rack mount. If any of you have good tones for d'jent, power, metalcore, prog metal, please throw them in here. Im not really a fan of too many effects. Phasers and flangers, univibes and rotary's really arent my thing. So if you...

    Been messing around with my Axe-II and dialing in some classic 80s rack fx. I am going for that 80s hair vibe, but with a modern sound. The detune effect setup right sounds like a monster chorus, but without the warble, if that makes sense. That, mixed with some delays and verb... yeah, well I...

    I've been messing with my HD500 trying to dial in some really good rhythm and lead guitar tones. https://soundcloud.com/mcgoreslam/tone-test How are these sounding to you guys? Any recommendations on improving them? The only thing post processing on the guitar tracks are a bit of compression...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Title says it all, basically I want to switch the tubes in my Egnater to EL-34's because all of my favorite amp tones tend to come from amps with them. Right now it's got ruby 6L6's, they're very, very dark sounding, to dark. Suggestions for brands to look into? I really don't know anything...
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I have read a few people have been unable to find satisfying heavy tones on the hd500. I feel its a great unit, the tone may be elusive, but it is there if you are patient. I am uploading my preset with a few variations so anyone may use it. No guarantee it will work for you but you may be able...

    http://soundcloud.com/drachenbart/ids2012 Let me know what you guys think! I originally wrote/recorded this song almost 10 years ago, and I've done a bunch of versions of it, with mostly minor changes throughout the years. I reworked it a little more last night while experimenting with some...

    I threw together a quick little comparison of some Pod HD tones, yes I know the guitars are buried in the mix and the playing is crap but I just threw it together real quick (no bass, master chain is the same as what's on the refeared CD). Comparing 5 different tones here, first is Ola's Handjob...

    This is just a short clip, i've really been working mainly on lead tones. I'm fairly happy with the rhythm tones, but always open for suggestions. This clip will actually make it on our EP...drum tracks too! :lol: Funny enough the amp model is a poulin hibrit with settings at noon, with the...
  17. General Music Discussion
    Just curious to find out which guitar tones everyone considers their favourites? Doesn't have to be metal, any genre is fine. Some of my favourites:

    I really suck at EQing bass, I am using Ampeg SVX and i've got a few bass impulses.... I really want to achieve something similar to this, but I don't know where to begin. Bass is an Ibanez SR505 with EMG's. I have also replicated this with VST's but it doesn't sound anything like Doug's...

    In the "Distinctive" camp (aka ones I like but most people will probably hate): One that I presume most of you will consider pretty good: (I'm presuming this was recorded on Ibanez 7s)

    Axe-Fx Gurus: I'm looking to make about a dozen or so presets on the Ultra that are dry amp models of a bunch of amps. These will run through my Roadster/Recto cab, so I don't want to use cab sims. I have a pretty solid (damn close) Recto tone now that I'm happy with, so I'm looking to make a...
