Can't tell if this is serious but if you are, sell the Metal Muff and get a Hardwire Heavy Metal to use with the Showman, it should work out fine.

Ugh, metal muff is trebly as HELL! I own one and can't get a tone that doesn't sound god awful trebly. However, I suggest using the pedal with everything less than 12 o Clock, and taking most of the EQ from the amp. At the risk of being flamed by UG, scooping your mids (a bit) will help you get a heavier sound. Just make sure you drop the treble on the amp and crank the presence.

Mostly, just fool around with it and take some time with it. You're guranteed to find SOMETHING manageable

metal is a very vague tone term. are we talking metallica, slipknot, killswitch, lamb of god? if ur talking metallica, basically set it to that stock picture with lower volume, slightly less mid and treble. slipknot and lamb of god, ull want bass around 4-5 o clock, mid 12-2 o clock, and treble 1-3 o clock. the gain and amp reverb will depend on the song no matter the band, just keep turning till it sounds right (that goes for all knobs, and thats what she said).

try putting those settings on both the amp and pedal and see what the tone is doing u dont like. if its too "muddy", loose some bass, (adjust the amp first and tweak with the pedal), etc.

EQ the hell out of it, to make it sound how YOU want it to.

Start with all EQ settings at 12 oclock, and tweak from there till you find what you want.

I believe the California is based more on the Mark series, it could probably get you decent early Metallica tone but not so much a Testament tone. If you want a modern Metallica tone and Testament tone, I'd probably go with an AMT R1.

Ok, i checked the ultimate settings thread and got the testament setting from there and i'm liking what i'm hearing, but now it doesnt seem to have the power it had woth the settings i put in the OP. I dunno, maybe it's because my ears are messed up, but if anyone has any ideas that can help with this it would be much appreciated.
