Hey guys I am really into the Misfits, especially the later stuff, and I'd like to know how to best get that nice tone. I have an Esp Eclipse and a Spider 3. I am aware of that they possibly used multiple tracks on the records and that he built his guitar himself. My guess is that they have the distortion high with treble around 3 o'clock. Any help would be rad, and I'm sorry if I have misposted around 3 o'clock. Any help would be rad, and I'm sorry if I have misposted.

I love the misfits, but jesus christ their tone is bad. You already have a Spider III so there's a start. Just put it on the insane channel, up the treb, scoop the mids and add a touch of bass and crank the gain.

they had plenty of mids though, and they re not that gainy. do treb7, mid5, bass5, gain5ish, and go from there.

I'm not sure what they used but it sounds very much like a Marshall JCM800 on Earth AD. Good luck trying to get that on a Spider 3.

Seriously? I think it's really chunky sounding, Imho. How about pickup wise? Neck, bridge, both??

If by "later stuff" you mean "Michael Graves era", then you're dealing with Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein's guitar tone. Basically that translates to really thick strings and cranking the bass. I'd say boost the treble slightly and leave the mids flat.

The earlier stuff always sounded really muddy to me, so if you want to nail that, pull back the treble and boost the bass and mids equally.

Edit: On the subject of amps, on Earth A.D. Doyle was probably using an Ampeg Lee Jackson head as he always does.

Well; I can tell from this that they used a Marshall 4x12 cabinet at least:
