When I palm mute my low E string (with distortion) it sounds like there is a small harmonic or seomthing like that. Almost a metal on metal sound. How can I get rid of it?

I got that when my strings were too loose. What gauge strings are you using, and in what tuning?

10's in drop D
Might be something as simple as raising the action slightly??

You could try that and see if it helps. If it's fret buzz, it'd be an issue if you get the problem when playing clean/unplugged.

try muting a bit harder. when you barely touch the strings, you get harmonics

I'm a fairly heavy palm muter

i do it a lot. ill be playin somethin and i forget to close my mouth... sometimes its really bad, slobber everywhere. i goes mostly over the neck, on the higher frets, and its really hard to get out from under the strings.

Try resting your hand on the tremelo instead of feathering it.

Its a fixed bridge

ye try resting it near the bridge. the higher u go, the thinner ur pm sounds.

Rest your hand further back. Resting it to far up can cause that. Also take care to note where your picking fingers are and make sure they aren't hitting any strings.
