hey I seem to have a problem with pinch harmonics on the low e string, I can let them ring out, but they don't seem to be nearly as 'powerful' as they are on the other strings? any suggestions?

I'm using a squier strat and a roland cube btw.

Use bridge pickup, and pump up the gain, and practice.

i learnt to make my low e pinchies more powerful by practicing HIM's "Kiss Of Dawn" and a think it was Slipknot's "Duality" ... God, I hate Slipknot

Mikeyb is right on the money, bridge pickup, crank the gain, and lots of practice.

bridge pickup, check your technique (that is a common problem; i'm not insulting your playing), and maybe your strings are dead. A nice new set of strings will help a lot if your harmonics start to seem kinda .... bleh

edit: you don't need gobs of gain to make pinch harmonics, it does help get them louder, but you don't need it.

ex. second solo to Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd.

David doesn't use gobs and gobs of gain, he does use EMG's, but i use passive SD's and can nail it with the crunch channel of my XXX with no problem
