I'm not sure exactly which forum this goes in, so I apologize if this is the wrong one.

Anyway, I'm playing a Schecter Gryphon through a Roland Cube. I have a Boss MT-2, and I like the sustain and rhythm tones I get out of it, however I can't seem to get a lead tone that I'm satisfied with, or like as much as my lead tone without the pedal. The tone with the pedal is thin, no matter what I do, and I want a thicker, more liquidy lead tone, kind of like Dark Tranquillity, Darkest Hour, or Dethklok (on Thunderhorse).

Does anyone know a good setting for this? Without the pedal, I generally just have treble on 10, bass on 5, and mid on 5, and play through my neck pickup, and it gives me a great sound, especially on sweeps, that I can't get with the pedal, but I'd like more sustain.

no don't if your gigging or jamming. if you do that you will get lost in the mix of everything.

the MT-2 doesnt quite cut it tonewise.
Theres your problem.
Also, EQ your amp differently.

High; 8
Mid; 6
Bass; 8

wont give you such an extreme sound. Lots of people prefer that. Its less 'super hardcore death metal' or whatever but its just a sound thats easier to listen to.

Keep in mind that youll probably never get really close to the sound you want from those bands cos theyre all using high gain valve/tube amps.

I have a Boss MT-2 and NS-2, and a Digitech Death Metal pedal.

And there's a settings thread?... That, uh, that sounds pretty... appropriate for this question... heh heh...

Guess I should go there...

Also, try using a compressor on leads to make your signal more unified and have it come out of the mix... unless you're just in a home practice setting... then see that other thread

It doesn't have very good tone, no, but you can get a hughe option of crappy tones out of it. (It was all i could afford after I got my guitar, and I'm looking to upgrade to a marshal or Randall soon :P)
