You'll be pleased to know I used to play my Cube-30x and really know how to work it

i would do this

bass - 7
mid - 1
treble - 10
Gain - All the way baby
delay on like half, or a little bit more depending on your taste


From my experience on the cube 30x, the treble sounded BEST all the way up, and delay adds a cool effect to long metal riffs. Also, generally for metal tones you "scoop" the mids, which means taking them down, to get a real edgy and sharp tone. Good luck

feel free to pm me if you need any more sounds out of your cube

Just in case you care, I had a Cube 60 for my first amp. If by chance, you are looking for a good metal tone, buy a Boss Metal Zone or Digitech Metal Master, and run it on the clean channel. You will get an absolutely crushing sound out of it. After I did that I never, well barely, used the R-fier setting again. Trust me on this. Try it out, buy the pedal if you don't like it, take it back. I swear you'll be glad you did...

Are you speaking about rythm or lead sound?

Rythem, sorry, guess I should have said that. That's what I play...still, I'm sure you can get a good lead sound out of it too. Maybe you'd have to mess with the setting a bit to find your perfect tone...

Well considering:

A) Both the Metal Zone and the Metal Master suck

and

B) Modeling amps don't accept pedals very well.


I'd advise against that route of action.

[insert terrible EQ setting here]

Please don't do this. Especially for leads, you'll get lost in the mix with no mids. Those settings are pretty terrible for any amp.

R-fier
Bass: 3-5
Mids: 5-7
Treble: 4+ (adjust to your taste)

Try something like that for leads

Do you use reverb for leads?Cause I find it enrichening my tone,so I use it nearly up to the max.

It is nice, but if you're using a lot of gain it can turn it into a big mess. Try using some light delay instead.

i love my cube

i'm not really into playing much Thrash, but try this.
Bass- 1 o'clock
Mids- 1 o'clock
Treble- Full
Presence- FUll
Gain- Full
on the Rectifier setting, add a little reverb, and you might want to tweak the EQ a little.

I have settled so far on Bass-3/Middle-5/Treble-6/Gain-7,using reverb on clean leads and delay on distorted leads.Thanks everyone for help,and if you have more suggestions feel free to present them.
