I was playing the solo in nightmare(A7X) but i just cant seem to get the right sound for it. Does anyone have any suggestions for setting that they use for it? (im using a valveking 212).

Firstly, you're not going to sound like A7X with a Valveking... get the amp they're using and you might get there.

Secondly, get an equalizer pedal and change the speakers if you haven't done so already.

i usually just keep the bass about around 11 or 12 o clock, the mid around 9 o clock and the treble around 3 o clock. its not perfect, but it sounds good to me.

Settings threads are not allowed in GG&A or anywhere else for that matter. There is a main settings thread if you think you need settings.

Settings are usually not helpful because different tubes, different dynamic ranges, and even different guitar cables can make a big difference in a tone, let alone different amps, pedals, guitars, and just the way that the original guitarists play can totally change the tone. Bass - 5 Mid - 5 and Treble - 5 on one amp might be the same as Bass - 0 Mid - 7 and Treble - 3 on another amp.

Use your ear.

A lot of gain and a lot of compression. Not a lot of bass.

That said, it's extremely hard to sound anywhere close to a produced recording. So much of the sound you hear on records (especially modern ones) is a result of production techniques. If you listen close to the solo, there is virtually no dynamic range. It is severely compressed. It's also likely that it's EQ'd to the hilt. It's also doubled in spots and most of the solo is two-part harmony. Awfully tough to cop that.

On my VK I can't put the treble anywhere past 11 o' clock, it gets way too bright.
