Who knows? Nothing will make people happy. If it sounds like SOTS, it's recycled. If it sounds like their older stuff -- they aren't progressing. If the album sounds like metalcore production,...

A new amp is what you need.

But...that's not always an option, I realize. Sell your Metalzone or throw it in a lake, whichever is easier. Get on ebay and find a Boss HM-2 pedal (they're not made...

Yes, new tubes are generally louder than old ones. But also, was your old tube a 12AX7 as well? Because if it was something like a 12AT7, then an AX7 would definitely be louder and maybe harmful to...

Do you "screw up" your face when you play?

LOL -- I'm actually serious. This is something I've noticed other musicians doing from time to time, and not just guitarists. Particularly, I've seen quite a few drummers "mouthing" the rhythm as...

^^Yep.

Gain is turned down quite a bit (but still high-gain amps -- very often Peavey 6505+s). Boosted by Tubescreamers. Mids are turned WAY up, while bass is turned way down. (The bass comes...

It's really hard to truly "scoop" the mids on a 6505. Even with the mids on 2, there are more mids there than many other amps. The fact that he's running his on 7-8; it's no surprise it doesn't...

They are very nice guitars for that price. I bought a Blackjack ATX V for about $350 and it's quite nice. It had one ding in the back which was no big deal to me. It plays like the $900+ model it...
