I have a peavy 5150 amp with the matching cabinet, and the tone im getting out of it is alright, but isnt exactly what im looking for. Its a very sharp tone, but im looking for something with more low end to it, and something that sounds smoother, something more like a parkway drive styled tone, or in flames. What type of gear do you recommend using with it in order to get what i need out of it?

Hows about you turn the bass on the amp up? You said a bassier tone so there's your answer.

the amp doesnt have enough on it im using a couple guitars on it all fitted with emg 81/85's

Have you tried using any type of attenuator? That'll definitely smooth out the tone.
Possibly a BBE Sonic Maximizer coupled w/ an attenuator...

EMG 81 is naturally very sharp, roll down the tone and volume on your guitar a bit and boost the bass on your amp that should help a little.

How do you have the EQ set?

Try boosting the Bass + Mids if you havnt done so already.
