Good amp settings for EQ?

Guys, I need help finding a good amp setting. I've been playin out of a practice amp with pedals for four years but recently I purchased a Peavy halfstack. I can't figure out how to get that "metal core" sound. So if any of you more exprienced "guitar gods" could show me some good settings for my EQ I would greatly apprieciate it. Thanks

OH... incase you guys are wondering, its not my guitar. Its an NJ Warlock with an EMG at the bridge.

Well, first off you need to go to the "gear" section. After that, I'll introduce you to my massive penis which I shall shove up your anus.

Man, there you go agian. I'll remember what you said, "respect goes both ways" I was being nice when I asked for help. You could have been more mature about your comment, man. I'm not asking for an appology or anything but next time man dont be a morron. Somebody needs to move or close this thread cause I can see its not doing much good here.

Just get a mod to move it...

anyways on the sound just mess around with the settings. You'll probably want to scoop out the mids a bit or something like that.

Sure, M=L was not very nice, but wtf do you expect? If you'd have taken 1 minute of thinking before you posted, you'd have realised that this is not the right place to post about gear.

And flaming him back instead of just admitting your mistake isn't a very good idea.

You've showed some good sides of yourself in the middle of your flaming though, so I won't call you any names right now.

What model is your Peavey half stack? Depending on the model, there might not be too much you can do to get the sound you are looking for.

All gain functions should be at full excluding the "Master" or "Post", depending on how those fucks labelled it. High / low / presence at full, and mids at zero. If you are getting a lot of high frequency garbage, scale back the presence and highs.

Im not sure what model it is or anything. I got it used from a friend. It works good and nothing is wrong with it. I scooped some of the mids and it sounds a little better but it still doesn't have the sound I'm lookin for. ???

I have a Peavey 5150 head, for the metal core-ish sound go for like Bass on 8 Mids on 4 Treble on 7, Prescence and Resonance on 10 Gain can go eithrer way
