Anyone have any ideas how they get their tone? It's so thick but not muddy. It's so clean but so damn heavy. I would LOVE to have their tone. Can ANYONE tell me how?

Eh, I think they scoop their mids, and use really crisp but gainy distortion.

turning your mids lower than your treble and bass
Vikings? What Vikings? We are but poor, simple farmers. The village was burning when we got here, and the people must have slain themselves.

Don't scoop your mids... that's how guitar newbies destroy their tone. If you must scoop them though, don't go overboard and use it for rhythms.

They have nearly no Bass whatsoever...
Crank the Drive, half-mid? Full Treble!

THAT explains a lot. No way I can afford one of those any time soon. Got any idea what model they use?

hmm i'd say a powerball or a special, something with some ultra crunch

I THINK(not entirely sure) that they use digital rack mounted processing with a splitter to multiple amp heads each powering a number of cabinets..... Each head will produce a complimentary, but different overall tone than each of the others....... Keeps the sonic canceling aspect to a minimum and really fills out the sound...

And this would be live, I'm not sure how in the studio....

Like I said, I THINK this is what they do.... Can't site it, just think I read something like that about them....

I know that there are a number of other guitarists like Dime who have used this technique....

I dont really know WHICH rammstein tone your requesting. Theres a big difference between Sehnsucht and Rosenrot.

As for gear, what they use now is mesa. I saw theyr rack in here a couple of days ago. 5-6 mesas in one rack, and ****loads of effects in the other.

So true, i hate how the other guitarist in my band has his EQ, it's Treble=10, Mid=1, Bass=10, Gain = 10.
god damn irritating tone.......

i've been playing for 31/2 years. i scoop my mids. it sounds fine. i just dont do it too much. i pretty much have a **** tone coming from my amp, and a boss eq-20 at the end of my chain, right before the amp. it sounds beautiful. just dont let me turn off the eq, or it will sound like the bottom of a wah sweep.

it depends on which guitarist's tone you want. Paul uses Engl Powerball and Richard uses Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifers.
