I'm looking for something like Opeth. With the distortion pedal I use (Line 6 Uber Metal) it sounds too digital. Suggestions? New pedal? Different amp?

OD pedals are usually give enough boost for that sound, and more "analog-sounding" as you say. But then could be the amp.....
The world doesn't revolve around you. If it does, beware. You're probably about to pass out drunk.

You mean digital. At least, I'm looking to change my distortion tone to be less digital.

aren't all distortion pedals analog ?


not the line 6 one
i have it, and u can remove the control part (which is essentially a big computer chip)
and u can replace it with another one, so u get another effect pedal

well dude, u picked the worst pedal if ur lookin for analog tone
all line 6 products are digital, especially the tone core pedals, if u want something analog try some MXR distortions, maybe the distortion +, i think its the yellow one

Figured. Well you have the same pedal. How do you manage your tone with it?

Well Opeth use and have used (for much of their career) Laney valve amps, paired with fairly low output pickups (for metal, at least). However their live tone is done through whatever the flagship BOSS GT multi effects pedal is (GT-10, is it now?), running into the clean channel of the Laneys.

if you turn back the gain on the pedal and just use a tiny little bit of amp gain you should get a warmer tone. lots of people do this to add warmth to otherwise sterile sounding pedals.

Laney VC30-112 with G12H30 speaker, or Session Rockette 30 for smaller gigs
Elixir Nanoweb 11-49 strings, Dunlop Jazz III XL picks
Shure SM57 mic in front of the amp

i dont really like it that much, but im stuck with it.
this pedal is good for the scooped palm muted new metal sh!t, and it doesnt really suck that bad for other stuff
ill tell u my setting and c how u like em
Level: 3 o'clock
Scoop: 11 o'clock
Drive : 3 o'clock
Bass: 1 o'clock
Mids: 3 o'clock
Treble: 4 o' clock

the treble and bass tend to balance each other out so u get a nice bassline that doesnt bring down the house, and the high notes wont rip through ur ears likje a dog whistle

I'm curious to see some more pedal suggestions as I have the same amp as TS and want to push it into teh br00t4lz every once in a while. I have a DOD YJM308 (similar to the MXR Distortion+) and I can't quite get a good heavy tone out of it in its stock form.
