well, you could probably get a better sound than them cheaper thatn u might have expected. The guitars dont really sound too amazing live! All you need is pretty much some awesome distortion and a half decent guitar with good pickups

that depends on how much you think its worth to get a sound like that, i think that just using a setting on my SFX box thing works allright, its only a cheap little thing (like 50 quid, thats uh, below 100 USD) and a 10Watt amp for practice in my bedroom, and i can get the rhytm guitar sound, well close enough for me,

Last I heard Matt uses a Digitech Death Metal Pedal in his rig with a Maxon OD808 methinks

I've been playing Trivium for a while and I've a distortion similar to theirs. I run a BOSS ME-50 pedal with the 'Metal' distortion with 3/4 gain, 3/4 Tone, 3/4 Low, and 1/2 level, through a Crate amp with the EQ set to 4/4 low, 4/4 Tone, and 3/4 Mid. And there's the formula, just to help. Also, the Crate I have has 120 Watts and 2 12" speakers, so it helps to have an amp that will push the lows further than smaller models.

The Trivium "sound"? Drop-D riffs, cheesy breakdowns, Friedman-inspired solos, and progressively stupider lyrics each album.

The Trivium "tone"? Try the settings thread.

I knew he used the Maxon OD, but i highly doubt he would need to use a digitech death metal pedal, especially with his JCM 2000 that he uses. Using a distortion pedal through that rig makes no sense.

Mahogany guitar + EMGs + Peavey 5150.

Not sure if that'd work for the last about though.

you basically want some kind of high gain tube amp, and a bridge humbucker.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
