im trying to find a crunchy british tone that lays of the gain but still has enough to hit really nice pinch harmonics

examples of what im looking for would be the tone on Four Year Strongs album Rise or Die Trying
the guitars sound overdriven and beefy but NOT metal but they get perfect harmonics

i think they play orange and bogner heads

i have a marshall jcm 900 and a peavey 5150

how can i get this tone?!

thanks

Try Electric Guitar, or GG&A.

Use the Marshall though, and just roll a bit of gain off, put mids at about 8, bass at 6, and treble whereve feels right.

Marshall for british stuff ?... I though Gain got injected in Marshall amps for fun.

I always use a peavey for less gainy stuff, Peavey is better with high tones though imo.

Dude, I think I would know, Trivium invented Thrash, Metallica are lucky they got as far as they did piggy-backing off of Trivium's signature style.

try the line6 spider II, they're awesome.

and the Marshall MG's have crushing overdrive, maybe that's what you're looking for?

Wrong forum.

Go back to the forums and look under all of the other links.

Guitar Gear & Accessories is your best bet.

right now i play the marshall through and orange 2x12 and the 5150 4x12
running the lead channel with the gain about 3/4 the way up and it sounds great but its a little too metal. if you listen to the example i gave, i want that EXACT TONE.

as for the marshall mg and the line 6
i could turn all the knobs on the jcm or the 5150 so they are level anywhere 1-10 and they would still have better tone than either of those two

im looking for some setting suggestions or possibly hardware additions(preamps etc) in the hunt for this tone

!!!IMO!!!
all songs sound better with:

gain: 9
bass: 9
middle:2
treble: 8

delay: ish,
reverb: just a tad.
but yeah.

how bout you spend some of YOUR OWN TIME , fiddling with knobs,
find what's right for you.
