Ok, I'm really not happy with the sound I get from my DSL401 and Gibson LP Studio when I play stuff palm muted. It just sounds incredibly sterile. Also, it doesnt sound as good as I'd like it to when playing normally. Im not using any pedals, just guitar -> wireless -> amp. This is on low volume btw. I havent cranked the amp recently. I'm pretty sure it just needs some EQ work but I've tried so many combos and none sound right.

Any help?

Ever tried boosting it with an overdrive like an sd-1 to even out the sound a tad?

yeah, I was going to say, try something like a TS9 or OD808. They work great as a tone "tightener" if you set the OD low and balance high. It makes palm mutes nice and tight with some edge.

It's most likely because of your low volume, try cranking it just for a while to see if you can fix it then.

i've got a Peavey Valveking 100watt stack and I have the same problem. Probably because the amp was geared towards classic rock. It has never been cranked because I live in a house I think I will buy a tubescreamer. Which one is best for metal btw 909 or 808?
