You're a new guitarist, you went out and bought 7 pedals, and you can play those songs? What the hell?

Sorry, but digitech sucks, so none of them will sound very good
Yeah Dimebag is not the "Greatest Guitarist" of all time... Hendrix maybe... I must go get food to eat with my mouth

$250 for an amp? wow. is it worth it to invest that much in the amp?

when I had that pedal i definatly used either 5 or 6 alot
i forget
but if you put everything to 12'oclock and go through them all, its the one with the INSANE gain.
if you turn gain down to about 2
bass - 6
mid - 8
mid freq - 6
treble - 9

thats what worked for alot of my metal
but it all depends on pickups/amp

Sunburst ESP Viper-400 with EMG combo
Ibanez Talman Elec-Acoustic
1973 Denver Acoustic
Traynor Custom Valve 20
Classic Cry-Baby

well in all honesty

only the metal zone mightve been good but not from that mult FX

if you had one thatas been modded by keeley and have a halfstack to use the ultra setting on then it would work pretty good for most of those

but yeah that pedal aint that great for waht u wanna do

He said the pedal emulates those 7 pedals. As for setting well, it is all preference really. Some like to play with raw crunchy metal sounds no matter what song they are covering, while others make acoustics outta everything. Play around with the settings and give it your own tone. The point of a cover is to make your own rendition of a song you like

Ah, 10 months. I thought you meant you just started playing. That makes much more sense. Anyway, for Metallica and Megadeth, scoop your mids. That'll get you close to their tone.

And since youve only been playing for 10 months, you might not know what this is. Bring your mids on your amp to 0, and your bass and treb to max or something high.

what will that do? should i do that on the peddle as well?

It would help if you told us what kind of guitar and amp you're using. Although I don't know if anyone could top "Digitech sucks" for helpful advice.


I wish UG had a spellcheck feature.

Itll give you a tone with less crunch, really. Itll be heavy but with little crunch. No dont do it on the pedal. The pedal knobs shouldnt be maxed out. It also reduces the extra noise produced.

It tends to get rid of muddiness and gives kind of a searing tone. Hard to explain. Maybe insideac can elaborate better.

Actually, if all your distortion is coming from the pedal, you don't have to do it on the amp. Just the pedal.

Thanks. But, I realized that after the 4th person told me. In fact, I noticed it right after I posted. I was just too lazy to edit.

Thanks all for your help... dropping the mids really did a lot! i never knew that, learning new stuff every day I LOVE IT!

Scooping the mids is necessary for a metal sound but keep in mind you'll want to dial back in at least SOME mids when you play with your band if you don't want to get lost in the mix.
