If you are looking at spending $500 on a tube amp for metal then you do not want to be running the clean channel through a multifx. The 6505 is an absolute beast, you do not need to run it through a...

Yes, hypothetically if someone had a crap amp and 100 to spend and wanted to improve their sound then swapping out the pickups would do the job in this scenario. Whether it would be worth the money,...

If you have a decent tube amp which can pull off the kind of tone you are looking for, regardless of whether it is a combo or a halfstack, then at that point I would consider upgrading pickups.

As a general rule of thumb, pickups are going to have only a very, very slight impact on tone on modelling amps, although I haven't played that Blackstar so I can't say for definite.

Pick tapping isn't necessarily faster but it will give a different sound. Joe Satriani uses this very frequently, in songs like Surfing, Crystal Planet and Satch Boogie.

You could do that yes.

I am not too familiar with your amp so I can't really answer this for you, but try and nail the tone as closely as possible with your amp. If it still sounds nothing like the...

Amps they have used include Framus Dragon, Peavey 5150 and a Soldano.

Then a pickup change is likely not going to be worth your while. The difference in tone between bad pickups and incredible pickups is going to be miniscule through that amp.

Ok just got home, the GSR has no battery.

I'll have another go at setting it up tomorrow, the strings are actually pretty filthy so that is going to be contributing.

I might get some clips up soon.

Probably a tube issue.

Try engaging/disengaging the effects loop to see if that makes a difference.

If there is any warranty on it then I would return it.
