hey guys, so i play with as much gain as i can find. my distortion tone comes from an mxr full bore metal. i love the tone I'm getting from it, but at times, i feel like it is almost too saturated. it isn't tight enough. what can i do to alter the tone to get something more along the lines of this:

i'm looking for misha's tone starting at about 4:12

i've tried a 10 band eq and it didn't really do wat i was looking for. also, i have a schecter c1 hellraiser

Get a rico custom 7 string with a crunchlab in the bridge and a liquifier in the neck and get a blackstar series one 200.

i like his tone from this one as well. and this amp and mine at least have the same manufacturer

(i have a vht special 6 ultra)

I doubt you are going to get that tone in the OP from a Special 6. Could be wrong though. I've never played one. Also, just so you know, I usually do not listen to clips when people are looking for a certain tone. You need to be able to explain what you are looking for and not point to a video. That is just my opinion. Didn't I tell you to get a Vypyr

But to try to answer your question - maybe try a boost pedal. What you pointed out was tight and bright.

orange amps?

but back on topic, i don't have the money to spend on a new amp as i've put about a thousand dollars combined into a tattoo, skis, and bindings. i also am off to college next year so i need to save for that. i'm interviewing for a couple new jobs though so lets toy with the idea.

lets say i was able to put... 5-700 into a new amp? suggestions for the super tight, super high gain kind of tone? i'm not a fan of peaveys. just not my cup of tea

Was just about to recommend a 6505.....

EDIT: Blackstar ht 20/40 with an OD pedal. I quite like the blackstars although I don't really like their cleans.
