I play metal stuff like trivium and ATR bands like that. Im trying to get a good metal sound with high gain and treble attacking mids and have some bass in there. I just got a new overdrive pedal the BBE Green Screamer and i play it with my MT-2, but for some reason when i turn on the BBE the sound gets heavier, static a lot, and harder to hear. Plzzz somebody help any suggestions or things i should change or add to my rig to get the sound i desire your feedback is appreciated as long as it helps.

1) Sell Spider
2) Sell MT-2
3) Buy High Gain Tube Amp
4) Boos High Gain Tube Amp with Green Screamer
5) Enjoy your Br00tal tone.

And my God you've got a Custom 24 and you play it through a Spider. That's like buying diamonds to decorate your crap.

Simply put, no. Unless your idea of a good sound is bees in a can mixed with mud, then no.

Agreed. I also got a MT-2 and... well, just do what BleedDeathMetal said, because I'm sure you'll end up being more happy tonewise with a good tube amp.

You should probably know that he named off some very expensive amps. For cheaper alternatives look for a Peavey 5150 or 6505 combo or head and some sort of cab. Or look for a Bugera

Also consider

ENGL Powerball
Bogner Uberschall
Mesa Mark IV/V
VHT Sig X


You won't get a good sound with the Spider especially if you boost it with the Green Screamer. When solid state amps start clipping the start to sound crappy. The pedal causes it to clip even sooner then it would naturally.

Mesa Dual Rec. will get you a killer Trivium (Ascendancy era) tone. Or a generic metalcore tone, in general...

Also, I feel like Paul Reed Smith would come to your house and smack you around if he knew what you were doing with his beauty.

You forgot the VHT Ultra Lead guitarman (Joel) is selling. He's an awesome guy and the amp is at an awesome price (1500)

Yeah I saw that one too, but I was keeping my prices under $1000

There's a Sig X on there that the guy wants to trade for a 5150 III. Not a bad deal if it's straight across, could make some money. Too bad the Sig X sounds like crap or I'd actually consider trading, too many other ones up for sale right now to ever sell it in a timely fashion to get something else
