So ive had my new MH-1000 for about two weeks now, its great, bood metal tone but not alot of the low end. but with my old EX-50 i had tons of low end.

i see this as weird because the EX-50 had some stock ESP pickups and my MH has a JB and a 59. however the EX was set up with DRs and it was in drop C. i put the MH in drop c and got some more chug, could puttin the DR's on my MH give me my chug back?

You might have to EQ your amp differently for the different guitar.


i thought that too, but my bass is already at eight and id prefer not to dime any of my settings.

Turn your bass down and your mids up dude. And get a DiMarzio Super Distortion pickup for more low end, or a Tone Zone maybe.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.

I've always found the JB to be thin and trebley. Also, you're EX-50 was an Explorer shape, correct? Explorers are big, with a lot of wood and boom. Even my Explorer Pro, which is 10% smaller than normal Explorers, has a massive low end compared to most guitars. What I would suggest is an EQ pedal, to boost your lower mids. Boost the 240-500hz range. That should give you quite a bit of chug.

That would be fine, although you might wanna consider shelling out a little more for the 10-band if you like to tweak. You'll just have more control.

Definitely don't swap your pickups YET. After the EQ pedal, if you want to TWEAK your sound, that's when you want a pickup change.

yea, i get that, it doesnt have bad "chug" anyway, just not much compared to the EX. so that eq should fix it right up.

your muting has to change when you go from a 24.75" scale to a 25.5" scale. move your hand around until you find the chug spot on the strings

Ive found that the chug spot is almost on top of the bridge pickup on 25.5" scales, but that could just be my experience

The JB is very compressed and most of it's tone sits in the midrange except for the thin trebble spike that makes people think it sounds thin. Not a good pickup for "chug". There are 2 ways to get a good chug sound. 1 is with low output alnico pickups and an amp that likes to compress everything into the lower midrange like a JCM2000. The other is to have any ol' "good" amp and use pickups that are high output with ceramic or neodymium magnets. The reason for this is to get the chug you need the low end to be tight. Low output alnico pickups have a tight low end but don't have a lot of low end which is why you need the amp to do so much work. High output ceramic and neodymium pickups do have the low end all on their own and it's very tight. High output alnico pickups compress out the low end so they simply don't cut it.
