Max out the mids, cut out all of the bass, and maybe boost the highest treble slider.

Maybe so. But the larger strings at least have more mass and the pick is less likely to catch on them. The hardest string for me to trem pick is the high e, because I really have to lighten my...

I haven't heard of the problem with the 120 watt heads -- only the 112 combo. They are different in that regard. Peavey put a buffer in the loop that is definitely not transparent. You notice it...

Concerns about the 6260/6262's quality issues aside, they are just not the right tone for the job.

The Marshall will get TS much closer to what he wants, by far.

Get the Marshall, /thread.

I find it easiest to tremelo pick on the low E, A, and D strings because they have more tension and allow the pick to glide back and forth rather than "catching" on the strings as much.

The most...

Oh, I'd love to try one. I'd probably buy one if I had that kind of money to blow. I'd like to try a Bogner Uberschall too someday -- I've heard those are similar as well, but their own flavor. No...

My MG was the worst amp I've ever owned. I'd say it was the worst amp I've ever heard, but I've heard some 10 watt, 8" speaker practice amps that were a little worse. But only a little worse.

I would get a Peavey 6505+ or regular 6505, or even an older 5150. Any of them would fit the bill with the right pedals (boost + EQ in the loop.)

LoG is the outlier in your list -- you'd need a...

Similar yes. But NOT the same. All of the Peavey variants have more BALLS than the 5150 III. Balls are not the same as gain, but it's hard to describe what I mean in words. You really need to try...

This is exactly what I came here to post. I love my M77, and on the green channel w/ crunch switch engaged and moderate gain, it sounds pretty Marshally to me.

^^I feel you two may be missing the point of the genre. ;)

FWIW, I still prefer the tone of my 6505 boosted with an OD. But the HM-2 is fun once in awhile. :satan:

If youre in the states you could always find another Schecter used (or new, for that matter) in a hardtail version. Or you could block the floyd and alternate tune to your hearts delight.
