How can I get the tone im looking for? I have a 5150 and good guitars but it just seems I can never find my right tone. Im looking for a tone that doesnt have too much mid, but it sounds huge. Like, I dont know. Kinda like the beginning of that Puddle Of Mudd song, "Control".
Any ideas mates?

Your best option is an equalizer. Danelectro has a nice cheap one.

For that song you would definitely need a compressor too.

EDIT: sorry I got the song confused with "blurry". But a compressor would be helpful to get that background steady distortion.

+1 to the equalizer, that could really help you out. The danelectro one mentioned is nice on a budget, if you have the cash though you should really look into the MXR 10 band EQ.

As for a compressor, I've heard good things about the DBX ones

Dyna Comps are the industry standard for Compression (or so I've heard). Ive got one and it dose its job well for a reasonable price (60$-70$). The only drawback is that its a little noisy.
