I've been playing for almost two years. I'm more of a punk.pop type of person, but I've always loved a 'musical' type of metal (ie, more harmonies, etc etc)

I have come to love Trans-siberian orchestra over the years, and i wonder, what is their setup, or what do you think?

I was leaning towards a noise gated extremely overdriven amp, because the distortion is so musical and clean and smooth..

but then again couldn't it just be some kind of high gain pedal with a noise gate on it? focus on the lead guitarist, btw.

what do you all think?

Id say its just distortion, compression, and a noise gate.
The smoothness sounds just like an articulate neck pickup like the air norton.
