I currently own a Schecter C-1+
bridge pickup : Duncan SH-4 JB
Wood mehagony(sp?)

Ok, I have a problem, I own a tube crate palamino, which has a normal warm distortion, but a few problems arise when I crank it.

firstly it has a fuzz or hum that comes out, it's like a radio when not on a channel.

Secondly, the volume is set up in two knobs. The first is called gain and adjusts the preamp and as long as its pretty far below the level knob(amp volume) it has a large amount of distortion. However, as the level knob is turned up the gain loses, gain. And I can't turn the gain up because it's already cranked out at 9-10.

So, I have a problem on how to get more gain, so I borred a friends overdrive pedal. What I got was nice, unfortunatly it has a problem because that fuzz was louder, and I still didn't have the crunch.
Anyway, long story short, I am getting a tube screamer, but I am normally a simplest and I would like to get my amp to overdrive a bit more and want a high output pickup, but keep the tone. (so no EMGs)

I was suggested the Gibson Burstbucker Pro, which sounds like a good option, but I just want some more opinions.

If youre looking for what I want I want a sound like Fall Out Boy, Plain White T's, etc.

hmmm well my my friend gain isnt a volume control. level is the volume control.
you need to crank the level and the gain knobs over, and stick an overdrive pedal before the preamp, and that should help you.
also you may not be able to get that sound your looking for out of that amp
the speakers you use, the tubes you use, all have something to do with the sound
You get nothing! You lose! Good day sir!

For your amp (no pedals):
Crank the gain (volume=zero)
slowly turn up the volume while hitting a string (sound check)
Stand far away
Don't stand near a T.V. or cell phones

With pedal
Set a clean tone on amp with low volume
turn up gain and volume on pedal
sound check while slowly turning up amp volume

Blinding flash of the obvious, but thanks for the comment on the burstbucker, you think that will work?
guitarist, you weren't any help at all.


I need to know about pickups, not how to work my amp.
