A new amp would do you some good but if you wanted all out i guess a better amp and a Les Paul with EMGs like Matt Heafy uses.
we must become the change we want to see.

lol strings wont give you a HUGE differnce in tone..
unless they are a new style of string (mellow vs bright, etc)
but dont waste your money hoping it will give you a metal tone...

ernie ball 11s and marshall amps



if you buy a digitech hothead, its modelled around a marshall amp, if you put that on 3/4 gain, full low, 3/4 high through an amp with full bass, low mid and high treble it sounds good, thats what i use and i get a nice heafy style sound

Very funny Trivium own your soul.

On Ascendancy, Matt used a Gibson Les Paul Supreme in Alpine White with an EMG 81 in the bridge and EMG 85 in the neck. Corey used a Jackson KV2 King V with Seymour Duncans. On their later tours, Matt used a Gibson LP Custom in Ebony, again with EMG 81/85s.

Ampwise, they used Marshall DSL's and still do (to my knowledge).

Now, they both use Dean Dimbag guitars (ugly!)

Not 85, but 89 in the neck.

To get a trivium sound i think that most decent metal guitars (eg: Jackson pro series, LTD, cheaper deans or even an epiphone ext. You may need some sort of floating trem to accuratley play some of the solo's) with high output pickups (eg: seymour duncan dimebucker or EMG ext) should get the right sound.

As for amps, if you olnly practiceing in your room a marshall MG15 or 30 will do, mabie get a decent distortion pedal, i've heared alot of good comments about the distortus maximus

Just an influence.

IN the new Album they used these: USA Razorbacks and Razorback V's, and Krank Revolution Amps if I'm not mistaken, not sure if they used any pedals.
#23
they use marshalls, DR dime strings, dean guitars (with SD hums or dimebuckers), boss efects (not sure which) and dunlop jazz 3 picks.

yeah i guess im a fan

Why do you want the Detonation sounds>

Aim for the Ascendancy album, imo have a better tone.

You want a LP fr the bigger sound

Well which guitarist are you trying to get? The fat/ugly dude who circle headbangs or the other guy who plays as though he is taking a power dump?
