ok, first off, im not trying to be just like megadeth or anything.. im really just looking for a good thrash metal tone in general.... i also know that all equipment is different and u can't tell me exactly how to do it.. but how are thrash metal eq's like metallica and megadeth set up? ive always heard they scoop their mids but nearly EVERYONE on UG says not to.. so how do i set up my eq?
Scoop the mids, but not completely. Maybe to about 4 or 3. Treble about 9, bass about 6, gain 9, and presence at 7.
Look at the Ultimate Settings Thread, it's stickied at the top of Guitar Gear & Accessories.
