any tips on how to stop the slop that you get from high gain?
noise gate most of them **** with your tone though. the best one is the mxr smart-gate cause it doesnt mess up your tone
just palm mute ur ass off and play with the EQ - i think too much bass = muddy
EQ it. Or, depending on what u use to get your gain, a better amp or pedal.
Back off on the gain a bit...
Turn the volume knob on your guitar down about 3/10ths.
