How would you get the sound like on ride the lightning. Would you have a lot of mid and not much low and high or vice versa?
they were using mesa's back then. they hadnt signed to ESP yet, so i dont know so much by the way of guitars. but yeah, scooped mids, plenty of gain
Yeah, if you scoop your mids too much your treble will sound to shrill. There is a settings thread someone in Gear and Accesories. You should check it out...
Never said they weren't, but if you scoop your mids completely it won't sound that great. It's balance you are looking for. If he goes to the extremes it won't sound good good.
