i just got a mesa boogie f30 and im having troubles with the amp settings....iv played around with it a little bit but can anyone give an idea what to turn them to to get a good heavy metal sound. bands i like r metallica,avenged sevenfold,pantera, and bullet for my valentine.
Mesas are tweakers amps, you may have to sit down for a while to get the tone you want.
Also, the F-series really only has enough gain on its own to touch metallica. I would recommend getting an overdrive pedal to tighten up the sound and boost the power.
