Parkway Drive tone (using Boss ML-2)

ok so im using a schecter revenger fr through a ashton 10W amp (im getting a new one in the next month or so) and i am using the Boss ML-2 Metalcore pedal. I'm trying to get a good PWD tone for the songs 'Carrion', 'Smoke 'em if ya got 'em, and 'Its hard to speak without a tongue'. I've looked at the amp settings thread so ive got my amp set to that but i was wondering if anyone knows how to better the tone with the ML-2 settings? The settings on the pedal are 'Level' 'Low' 'High' and 'Distortion'. If anyone can help will be greatly appreciated thanks

you can't get any tone that was done in the studio with a really bad practice amp and the worst distortion pedal ever made. sorry

wait till you've got a new amp.

yeah the amp really sucks but i think the pedals great, i mean sure its hardly versitile its only really for one or two different sounds but it does what its made for well. what pedal and amp would you recommend? my price range for the amp is 1500$ (NZ)

I would suggest a Peavey 6505+ or 5150(since those are the amps they use), but its $3000 in NZ. So otherwise, i think a tube amp with decent tube OD and and actual OD pedal infront of it, will probably push it into PWD territory. Im thinking maybe a Tiny Terror, Classic 30, Blackheart Little Giant, and others. Just go to your guitar story over there and try everything out.

EDIT: Can someone translate $1500 NZD into USD ?

^even if you figure out how much $1500 is worth, amps still cost much more in NZ

bugera amp heads retail for about $1500 in nz.
but u may have to wait a bit longer so u can get a cab too.

If ur lucky u might find a used 5150 for about $1200. but i doubt it.

Dude, get a Bugera. 5150s are the way you want to go, but they are way too expensive in Australia and New Zealand. The best tone you'll get for an affordable price will be a Bugera 6260 or maybe a 333.

thanks, but i have heard things bout Bugera's being unreliable??? and if i want the right amp i guess im prepared to pay the extra price it will just take longer to get is all. and if i did get a 5150 do you think i would need a Distortion pedal still or will the amp have enough grunt? (im a noob when it comes to amps etc. lol)

Correct me if im wrong but doesnt one guy from PWD use a 5150 head, maxon OD, ISP decimator and a BBE sonic stomp.

Anyway.
5150 is grunty enough but with an OD is really tightens it up.

Not sure if your familiar with antagonist AD (there tone is similar to PWD) but kris used that exact set up above (with a tuner) with an Bogner Uberscall cab on there latest record. Sounds mean to me

If you can save, get a 5150.

Or alternatively just message Parkway on myspace and ask what gear they are using. They are pretty nice guys.

they don't sell 5150 anymore.
and rockshop is the only one that stocks 5153, but we don't have any of them in the country atm so rockshop can't get them in.

go for a decent combo, you don't have a cab to play a head through

I think the 5150's are now 3120's. But they dont come cheap, especially in our part of the world. You could prob get a used head in your price range but you might need to save a bit more for a cab. Or you could look into the 6505 combo that is coming out. Though im not sure when that will hit stores in NZ
