So i'm trying to figure out my sweeping and its strange because on my practise amp at home it sounds clean/fluent. Now when i get on my Peavey 6505+ it complelty sounds different. I know it has to do with my technique as well as my settings on my amp. Any ideas on what i should do to my settings on my amp? Like lots of mid or more high or...? thanks!!

on my practice amp, i have high and low all the way up and a little over halfway on the mid and sweeps sound pretty good. i don't know about a bigger amp though...

^^^ what he said will deff help also when you sweep make sure your not moving your whole arm but just your wrist, and try to mute the strings that have already been played with your palm one of my friends just helped me with this same problem and its a pain to get down =\

The guys from protest dont sweep all that much. Alot of what sounds like sweeping is economy picking, occaisionally tapping, but when they do sweep, its a product of practice, and nice gear. The lead guitarist plays a vht, and an S prestige, very much shred gear.

Otherwise, id take the advice from ug. Just make sure that your sweeps are even, thats one of the biggest aids in sounding even.

When I tried a 5150 I remember it having TONS of Mids.. I dont know if the 6105 is probably similar.. but yeah definantly dont go for the Crunch Channel if I was you..

Its because practice amps hide your mistakes rather well, while an amp such as the 5150 is extremely articulate.
