i'm starting a new band. i'm trying to go for a doom metal meets stoner metal. imagine pelican meets kyuss. i know how to work on the kyuss tone but i don't know where to start on the doom metal tone. i don't imagine it being too far off from the stoner metal tone.

depending on what type of doom metal you are into, baritone guitars are good, or lower tunings. A very deep tone that has lots of bass, good amount of mids, and a fair amount of treble is needed. The middle is needed so as to balance the bass of the lower tunings. Lots of distortion with a large amount of sustain is wanted, and for the cleaner parts, using your neck pickup adds somewhat of a darker tone, what ever you do, do not drop the mids. Dropping the mids will kill your sound and make it very muddy, at these lower registers on a guitar, that would sound horrible. Good luck on getting that awesome doom tone. \m/

The studio I go to always has these goth kids playing there... Anyway they have their Mesa Boogies turned towards a wall, with mics behind it, this way the sound goes off of the wall and into the mic (I guess) . I can't really comment on it much because I haven't tried it myself, but I can ask them more if you want...

Wow, I'd really like to hear what your band sounds like. It seems like a good combination if you can pull it off. Anyway, consider getting a Big Muff and a dark British-voiced amp.
