hey, i was wondering what settings do you have your metal zone at?
"Pictures in a box at home
Yellowing and green with mold
So I can barely see your face
Wonder how that color taste"
#2
as a general rules, play with it and if you can't get the sound you want, tweak you amp eq

every knob is 360 degrees, but only goes to around 300, so ill base how i set it on that

On the Level I set it to whatever is slightly louder than the clean.

For the 2nd knob, I have the big knob around 250 degrees and the little knob either the same or maximum

For the 3rd knob, I have the little knob to barely 180, I guess 150, i have no intent on measuring, and the big knob to a little over 180, I guess 200

For the 4th knob, distortion is either halfway or almost all, because I like to experiment

I've been recording with my metal zone and so far it sounds like total s***. Maybe its my recording gear but until that theory is refuted I'm looking for another preamp

this distortion settings is the best I could find, I like treble, btw.

what amp are you using?
1993 Jackson Dinky Professional XL (shred)
Modified Squier Strat (blues and anything)
Vox Valvetronix AD30VT
Boss DS-1 Distortion
Dunlop Original Crybaby GCB-95

Vox, if that question is referred to me, a Peavey amp I borrowed from a friend, it has one 12 in it... I might invest in that marshall half-stack, If i can ever get a concise review on it
