Me and my band want to play some Hair Metal style of music (Warrant, Motley Crue etc.), and are wondering how we can get that typpical Hair Metal sound.
No one of know anything about how to set up an amp and basically just mess around with it to get a good sound, but this is a kind of sound we've never been able to achieve....
For home practice i've got an old Peavy Rage and a Fender Frontman, A Boss ME-25 and my guitars is in the signature.
Anyone know how to do this?

Boost mids and highs.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

basically you want a really trebly tone with lots of edge and bite to it having the proper gear and amp would help a ton but i don't really know what you can do to replicate the tone.

As DarkMass said boost mids and high mids. An 80's guitar will help a tonne.

You can find old cheap 80's Kramers for next to nothing, if you wanna go that route.

For the bass player, I would suggest using a pick, light gauge strings and boost the mids. With him you want a shit tonne of attack, but not as much lows.


If that makes any sense.

In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

Right now, there are six and a half billion people on earth who don't care what kind of tubes you have in your amplifier

Get in touch with your feminine side. You know, tight leather pants, fancy hair, maybe a bit of lipstick...

Super Strat with hot pups, hot-rodded Marshall with boosted mods and highs, a bit of chorus here and there, etc.
I pride myself on my humility.

Hair metal is not about the guitar, or turning it up to eleven, it's about feeling your guitar, and feeliWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

does your me25 have amp models? If it does, set it to the JCM model (UK 80s? probably be called something like that).
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
