Sounds like it's working great!


Seriously though, put a noise gate in the loop (not sure how you have yours set up), lower the pre-gain a bit, make sure your guitar/cords/pedalboard etc. is not the...

I would recommend an MXR 10 band eq pedal before anything else in your situation. I think putting it in the loop with a drastic cut to 16kHz and a moderate cut to 8 kHz will really help you out. You...

Well, I'm a Jackson guy, and my pro series MIJ guitars are great. If you can swing a USA soloist, that would be my suggestion.

EQ pedal in the loop. I like the MXR 10 band. It will do exactly what you need. You can adjust frequencies to really take a bite in the overall mix.

Looking for an el cheapo 7 string

It's been a while but I'm thinking of finally getting a new toy. Drop A with a 25.5" 6 string leaves a bit to be desired.

I would go for the 6505. It's absolutely bone-crushing for metal tones.

To get decent cleans, use the clean channel with the pre gain low. Add a bit of reverb, chorus, or delay and your set. The...

I use DR DDT 12-60's for drop A on a 25.5 in scale guitar and they're a bit loose, but should be just about right for drop A#. Those or ernie ball "not even slinky" would be my recommendation.

AFAIK, you cannot actually change the channels on your amp using only the POD. For example, you cannot go from rhythm to lead without using the amp's footswitch. But you can however change from a...

Nice. I sold my VK 212 on craigslist for $275 (after I bought it not working for $100 and fixed it :cool: ). Very versatile amps, especially for the price.

The 4CM works well with 6505's. I use my RP1000 for cleans and effects (delay) and it works great. I imagine the HD500 or 500x would work well for what you want. Whether or not the "x" is worth the...

Sounds like tubes to me. Your main issue seems to be power tubes, but that weird noise you had before may be a bad preamp tube as well.

What you're describing is a looper. Based on a quick google search, I don't think the GT 6 has a looper.
