If you haven't gotten at least close to their tone already with your amp and a neutral EQ setting, the amp ain't gonna do it. I will go out on a limb and guess that you have a Marshall MG 30 watt......

^^This is more like it. I just bought a set of Not Even Slinkys for C# Standard and they're borderline too loose for the C# Standard to which I tune. I had to ditch the .56 low E and go buy a...

I usually don't comment until I've had 3-4 listens to a new album, but I felt compelled to do so after one listen of Pale Communion.

They took everything that was good on Heritage and got rid of it....

With Opeth, I've learned to like their new stuff for what it is, not what it isn't. All comparisons to other prog bands aside, their music still has an Opeth feel and takes me on a journey. ...

It will drown-out a drummer with the volume on 3. For those occasions where sonic annihilation is not loud enough yet, it goes to 10. Personally, my ears start bleeding at 5.

I've had a similar thing happen with my Hall of Fame pedal. I wouldn't call mine "white noise" though. It literally sounded like a fire-siren (just as loud, if not louder, too). My dog nearly...

That's not far off. I would set the fine tuners about 3/4 of the way in, not halfway though. As Dspellman said, once you get it in tune, they rarely go sharp, they go flat, so having that extra...

I've got an MXR Custom Badass. It is indeed based on the SD-1, but nicer. It has the asymmetrical clipping, so it, like the SD-1, sounds a little more gritty and grinding -- as compared to a...

My NS-2 does an amazing job too -- no "tone suck" either. If anything, it boosts the signal a bit.

Oh, and TS, periods are nice. ;)

To me, it is an excellent choice for metal genres outside metalcore. It's just that since the majority of metalcore bands use a 6505+, people tend to think that's all that amp is good for. :haha:...
