I am extremely angry right now because i cant get the tone i want out of my crappy amp and distortion pedal. I have a Line 6 Spider 2 and a Boss Metal Zone. The thing is that my friend used it and ****ed around with the EQs. Well now i cant find my old distorted tone and (to tell the truth) i never like my old tone anyway. I dont even know why i got the Line 6! I thought it sounded good at the time but now i just hate it. I cant wait until i get my Randall RH300G3 Amp Head in November...

Anyway, to make this more than a rant, has anyone ever lost their good tone eq or still having trouble finding one? Also has anyone had equipment that sounded good at one point but the next sounded like ****?

Your problem might be your amp and pedal choice.

I'm not so sure what you're going to be able to do about that right now.

my spider II amp was good for the first 6 months, but when i started using it more - the sound turned to crap. my line 6 uber metal totally died on me and would never work again 4 months after that. ive tried a dist. pedal through my spider before - try using the red clean channel, and keep the drive below half. the drive knobs muds up the sound. mids also are very digital crap through spiders, so put ur spider's mid at or below half. the bass and treble have slight effect but owrk with them if u can. be sure to use some lows on ur pedal. thats all i can think of.

i have a line 6 too...
it's ****.

but it was cheap and i just practice on it, and it's nice and small so it fits in my room.

just wait till u can get something else, you'll never get anything good out of a line 6.

oh yeah, plus my tone sucks with crappy cables and stuff, so try using good cables.

You spent $600 on a solid state amp head!?

Seriously, why the hell do you need 300 watts?

This is madness...
