Does anyone know how to get tone similar to Michael (sp?) Romeo's lead tone?


Merry Christmas

I love Symphony X to death, but I've always thought that their sound is a bit artificial; I wonder whether that's got anything to do with Romeo using Line6 Vetta amps.

It sounds like mushed up high-gain EMG-ness to me.

Line 6 + EMG's + High gain = One majorly proccessed, digital and ultimately fake sounding tone.

Love the player and the band, can't stand the tone.

Wow, I didn't know EMG's had that reputation.

Listening to Divine Wings of Tragedy right now...

His tone may be digital but it still sounds ok to me. Its prog metal were talkin here, not delta blues. And you gotta admit that rythym tone is deliciously crunchy...

Don't like either lead or rhythm to be honest. Doesn't sound crunched to me, sounds crushed :p:

Boo!

Liimatainen. Not fond of his tone at all, to be honest. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too stereotypically marshall :p:

Besides Gilbert, Govan and a few others(can't think) I looove Yngwie's tone especially on Rising Force.

The rawness and clarity is hard to find from that era to nowadays...

But I mean, the first power chord that he lets fade first up in awakenings...Oh boy...

Smoke and mirrors is actually quite alright for lead.

Before he was using EMG's he used X2N's I believe. Not much of a fan of him though...

Awakenings is amazing. The tone however is terrible.
