hey does anyone know of a good effects pedal or amp that really helps the harmonics and pinch harmonics stand out? cuz alot of the fall of troy and some other metal bands use pinch harmonics alot and i can do them but they arent exactly... loud.

because you're playing emgs through an mg.

before you waste your money on any effects know that your technique is the #1 factor, however a tube amp wouldn't hurt since you're running EMGs.

distortion usually helps

You should probably keep practicing.

Buy a new amp before pedals if you are planning on getting something though.

Get a tube amp and practice.

Well, a lot of it's in the technique but a good amp with plenty of gain helps. I have trouble with them on my C30 but on the Dual Recto I use with my band, I can do them just fine

Practice, practice, practice, then get a real amp.

i find from my experience that gear doesnt help with pinch harmonics as much as people think it would. keep on practicing, look up as many pictures and videos as you can that would help. but later on, look into saving up for a 6505/5150 of some sort, so many hardcore bands use them.

techniqueis the most important part but having a decent amount of gain and your mids turned up a bit should help. the voicing of marshalls (high end, jcm800 etc) are great for pinch harmonics in my opinion.

No kidding... to me there's rock, hard rock, metal and death metal...... I couldn't be bothered to figure out what everything else is and isn't.

I just recognize 3 genre's of music.

There's good music, which is one of them, and then everything else falls under top 40 or country. :P

Get something with like br00talz gainz. Just pick up a metal zone or something. Your tone is most likely incredibly ****ty, so adding a metal zone won't adversely affect you or anything. Just make sure you set all the knobs to 10.

still, im just saying, how many people talk about dream theater or symphony X like "oh theyr not metal". progressive metal is a sub genre of metal, is that too hard to understand?. save up for a new amp

I know, BUT you can sell your current amp, and save more money too. I didn't mean to come off as such a jerk, so I apologize.
