on all their live performances, adam and joel from killswitch engage have the most amazing guitar tone when it comes to pinch harmonics. does anyone know what gear they use? because i have a prs se singlecut thru a marshall solidstate with a line 6 uber metal pedal, but my pinch harmonics only really work on the low E, A, and G strings. i can do them on the other strings, they just sound really ****ty, not because im not doing them correctly, but [im guessing] it has something to do with the pickups, etc. the D string harmonic is the main one i want to nail and have it sound good. so, back to the question, anyone know killswitch's gear?
from wiki

Dutkiewicz uses Caparison PLM-3 guitars, a discontinued model, with EMG pickups (85 in the bridge, two SA single coils in the middle and neck positions) and DR Tite-Fit .012-.052 strings. He is quoted as saying that he likes the guitars because they have a very "strat-like neck." Before using a Caparison guitar he used a Fender Stratocaster with a Twin blade humbucker that replaced the single coil on the bridge.[citation needed]

For pedals, he has been known to use Maxon AD9 Delay and Maxon OD808 Overdrive units, and he and fellow guitarist Stroetzel have also both been credited with helping develop the Maxon OD9 Pro+ Overdrive pedal. He runs the delay pedal in the loop of his amplifiers, while he runs an overdrive pedal in the loop of a Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor.

Amp-wise, he has used a variety of amps live, including Hughes and Kettner Triamps, Peavey 5150's, Framus Cobras, Mesa Boogie Triple-Rectifiers and Roadsters, with Mesa and Hughes & Kettner 4x12 Cabinets, loaded with Celestion Vintage 30s. He also uses a Sennheiser EW100 Wireless Unit, as well as Samson Powerbrite Pro, a Korg DTR-2000 Rack Tuner, and a Hughes & Kettner Triamp Footswitch. [4] His former rig was featured in the Guitar World, Vulgar Display of Power column [1].

For recording "The End of Heartache", both he and Joel used a combination of a Framus Dragon running into a Mesa 4x12 with Celestion Vintage 30's, and a Peavey 5150 running into a VHT 4x12 cabinet with P50E speakers. However, on the track "Rose of Sharyn", both guitarists substituted a Framus Cobra in place of the Dragon, but it is not specified if they used the matching Greenback-loaded Cobra cab instead.

Recently, Dutkiewicz has signed on as an official endorser for Mesa/Boogie amps


Joel uses caparison dellinger and angelus model guitars with emg pickups and uses Framus amps, im also pretty sure joel has started using mesa's ... might be wrong though
