it doesn't sound muddy and each string is getting clear reception. EMG 81-85 is a perfect example of "tight."

Hell yeah 81/85 ftw.

Basically lots of new guitarists crank up the gain to 11.
This makes things sound pretty bad and fuzz-tastic.
So tight is where it's Crunchy, but clean with no noob-sound.
I achieve my Ubar-tight distortion with my gain at 10-11 O'clock.
I then put my overdrive on and put a wee bit of distortion and level on to give me lots of yummy sustain and moar crunch!
Pedals are a lot cleaner than amp gain/effects

Punchy and focused.

As opposed to loose and saggy.

EMG's sound muddy ass hell if you run them through a cheap. So the amp is were you want to start for a tight bottom end (not talking about asses here).
I think the VHT Deliverance, most Bogners, and Sunn O))) (amps) have a tight bottom end.

I guess the contrasting end of a tight low end would organic...shit, I didn't see that he was talking about distortion.
Low frequencies are an important part of that though.
