Modern metal is just maxed highs and lows; no mids...Find a gain that works and there you go.
Sort of.
Mess with some settings and the knobs on your guitar.

Edit:
Try half gain and use a booster.
If not, then...idk

1 - Ibanez makes a ton of different RG series guitars.

2 - Fender makes a ton of different amps. Which one is the "standard" one.

3 - You don't seem to be talking about building or customizing. Try Guitar Gear & Accessories, but be more specific in your OP.

4 - *reported*

heres a few tips:

turn off caps lock
tell us what guitar and amp you have, specifics please
dont put extra spaces between lines
try to make things easy to read

after that, you can make a thread in the Guitar Gear and Accessories forum, or just try some settings from the settings thread.

Without A Static Explosion Of Sound And Noise

... Wile Maintaining A Sound That Is Clear?


I think he is unsatisfied with his signal to noise ratio but he doesn't know how to say it. I think we can help him. first off, stop using crappy pedals or better yet stop using pedals at all. most people who have all the gear they want get the sound from the amp, not the pedal. just a thought. you can use pedals but it helps if they are a better quality. one way to tell is if it is all analog and true-bypass. crappy pedals and even good ones give you a gain loss that results in a poor signal to noise ration when you amplify the signal again. if your ibby RG has **** pickups and wirring then thats your first problem. also look at the cables. monster cable or something better is highly recommended. click my signature and scroll down to the story on good cables.

lets review

guitar:
good pickups, pots, switches, wires, shielding if necessary. also some single coils are going to hum when used alone. thats life.

cable:
dont buy crappy cables, foot switch cable can also be overlooked. bad footswitch cables can also create feedback or hum.

pedals:
dont use them for know until you figure out where the tone suck is happening. if you find the pedal was the problem then start looking for something similar but of a much higher quality.

Amp:
buy quality. if you dont buy a decent tube amp then get a NICE solid state amp like the orange crush 30R

lastly, as a general rule, anything solid state tends to either distort or loose the high frequencies. its just not as good as tubes. also bad or long cable runs will shave off your highs. once the resistance in the cable increases, the cable becomes like a capacitor. like the tone knob on your guitar.

A-B your stuff and isolate the problem. and tell us exactly what your using. feel free to PM me also.
