Ok, so ive been doing some experimenting with my gear, and ive found that its possible to get sounds similar to adam jones's rig. [not exactly, but similar]

Im using a blackheart bh5h, a jay turser jt50, and a boss ds1.

It took freaken weeks but ive got close to adams tone for You Lied off the Salvial album.

Lets start with the blackheart settings,
bass: turn it almost all the way up
Mid: probably a little past mid way
treb: around the same spot as the mid

Now the boss ds1
tone: probably around 11
Gain: 11

You might be able to use these settings with your guitar...
just as long as it has plenty of bottom end.

Jones doesn't use Herberts; he's got two VH4s.

And it oddly doesn't seem Adam uses a ton of low end in his sound; more mids and treble than low end (I know is superbass settings are bass, treble and prescense at 0 and mids at 10), but he seems to have like a lowered prescense so it's a little mushier, but makes up for it by cranking the hell outta his amps so it's still really crisp and defined. His sound's one of my favorite. I can actually get really close with my rig too, but I'd much prefer to try it through a 4x12; there's just something about 4x12s that gives you an extra kick.

One of the things is that he uses three or four amps at a time, each one for their bass, or treble, or middle, or whatever, and that combined makes his wonderful sound.

I know that. That's why he's got two different VH4s; one silverfaced which has more prescense and a brigther sound, and one bluefaced which has a more scooped tone.
