Alright, my current set up is a Peavey 6505+ head with a Avatar cab and ESP EC-1000 guitar. I think my tone right now is pretty good, but of course you always want to make it better. I'm trying to get a more "brutal" tone kinda like The Acacia Strain and Emmure. So can anybody give me any suggestions? One thing I'm thinking about is getting a tube screamer. I've heard of bands using them but I wasn't sure how well they really work. Thanks in advance.

They're great for boosting your signal for solos and such, but James Hetfield said they're not good rhythm playing. I would buy a MXR 10-band EQ, which is great for switching between two different types of sound.

Yamaha Acoustic Guitar
Vox AD30VT w/ VFS2

tube screamer is just more gain and maybe a slight tone change depending on your settings
