Hi ppl...I can tell that everybody at least likes few 80s metal songs,if not all of them.They just "glow" energy,and they are very instrumental,in relation to today's music.So does anyone know how to get that 80s guitar sound,what pedals,which effects to experiment with and such as... peace

If you're EQ'd loose, you'll sound loose anyway.

You'll want something british voiced most likely.
JCM is 80's metal up the ass. Crank that **** up loud, crank the mids, play a power chord or two, and youve got it
or, you could buy a 5150 and just crank all the knobs to 10 like eddie van halen did

OK, 80's metal can mean a lot. You might want to specify what kind of sub-genre we're talking about.

I was thinking about...hmm...Let's say i would like to get that Autograph,Quiet Riot,Ratt,and similar effect sounds...I thought of that...And I am aware that 80s guitarists are mad skilled...That's why I really learn the guitar,i don't play from tabs...

Gain, chorus, delay. Maybe a little phaser or flanger. EQ.

The trick is to get the gain without the hiss...

Oh, then you'd want good amp gain with a touch of effects (pretty much chorus or a nice, short delay). Add some more delay and some reverb for leads, and make sure you have a Floyd, and you're halfway there.
