I'm getting a Schecter Omen 6 soon and I was wondering if there was any effect pedals that could get a close sound to James Hetfield's guitar (especially on "The Call of Ktulu"). I will use this for recording straight into my computer's Microphone jack so don't ask about amps. If there's a better substitute for the Omen 6 around the same price, I would also like suggestions on that.

TS you won't get anything near James hetfields tone without a decent high gain amp and a decent distortion/overdrive pedal.

plugging into the microphone jack won't give you a decent recording. plus there is no pedal in the world that can emulate a cranked mesa with tons of rack units.

I think he uses MESA´s right now... in the older days, Marshall.

He used Marshall's on the first two albums, then Mesa's. And now he uses anything from Kranks, to Marshalls, to Mesas, to Diezels. He's got it all.

well no not really. you can have all the gear that hetfield has but still not sound like him, because hes going to play the same riff you play differently

Compare Mark Morton's tone to John Petrucci's tone...


Maybe you should just invest in a recording interface such as Amplitude, guitarrig, or Line 6 Toneport/Guitarworks

^^ yea the basic tone will be there, but i can have all john mayers stuff, yet i wouldnt sound like him, because though i think he is really good, and my style is heavily based from his. I still draw other random influences (pop punk, metal (everything from poisen/GnR/Van Halen to Lamb of god/Shadows fall)). but yea you will get close if you want to. i like to try to make things my own. but if you wnat that type of sound then yea thats all good

Mesa Boogie Triaxis would get you very close. Hetfield doesn't use distortion or overdrive pedals, hes quoted as saying they add a "****ty coating" to the sound, or something along those lines.
