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?
Ibanez Prestige RG1570
Schecter Omen 6
ESP LTD Viper 400
Dean Dime From Hell

Peavey 5150
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
WTLTL 2011
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.
Sig What?
