I can't seem to get a good tone with my Bugera at all:\
I've had it for months now and I can't find a good tone to kinda settle on, I'm constantly having to mess around with it.
I dunno if I should change the tubes or if i'm just not using the EQ properly.

I also have a Boss ge-7 in the loop.

Im going for that kinda brutal 5150 tone, Chimaira, Parkway Drive, All Shall persih type tone.
And I was kinda hoping id be able to push a kinda metallica/megadeth type tone out the crunch channel.

Any suggestions guys?

it constantl varies, like it would be pointless even saying cause they never stay the same.
Normally as a staple Ill set my low around 6/7 mid around 2/3 and high around 6/7 presence around 4 or 6..

whats your master volume at, if your power amp isnt pumping your brootalz are going to sound thin.

my recomended settings to start with would be something like: Bass: 2 oclock, Mids: 12 oclock, treble: 1 oclock.

people are going to be telling you to cur your treble... it's bul****, your treble shouldnt be more then 1-2 away from bass, keeps it nice and tight. can scoop your mids more if you want, but much more than that and you're not going to cut through. anyway, that'll give you somewhere to start, enjoy

Edit:

Are you lettting your amp warm up long enough before use?

Also what guitar are you using with what pups

^also this guy is right on the whole treble bass thing, mids are optional.

maybe by a good od pedal, i suggest the zakk wylde signature one, it'll boost your signal and gain, and it may enhance the brutality of the tone

Schecter tempest custom with EMG's and a Scter c-1 classic with BKP Painkillers.
Stock tubes and speakers (2x12)
Gain is normally around 6/7
my master volume is normally around 5 and channel is whereever, normally around 2.

I have a Boss sd-1 and an MXR dynacomp, and as I said, my GE-7/

Any ideas?

What specifically don't you like about your tone?

I wouldn't boost that amp with the SD-1, plug straight in.
A JJ ECC83S in the V1 & V2 preamp spot should help some.
