damn, metal=life, why so cranky? i could see how he was easily confused and put his GUITAR rig question in the GUITAR section instead of the gear section. it's not a huge deal... and he wasnt being a little turd bacon like some of the other fucks that come on here... cut him some slack.

anyways,
what kind of head is it? like what are some things it says on it? peavey make alot of different stuff, there isnt a universal eq'ing on all of them...

those settings hurt my ears... what kind of guitar are you using, and with what cab?

my guitarist's 5150 goes:

gain 4-6 depending on the guitar
bass 4-6 depending on the guitar
treble on about 3-5
resonance at about 7
presence at like 6

but he has two cabs... and probably different guitars.

I have no clue what kind of head it is, I bought the amp used from a friend who was selling it to get a Mesa (jelouse). I guess I can try to find a pic or some thing. Right now my amp has no mids, highs are on 7, lows are on 9, pre gain on 10, post gain on 1.

I have a Marshall JCM 900 and it has not much gain of it's own, but I run a Voodu Valve into it. I set the Marshall gain at 7.5- 8.5, prescence 3.5, mids 4, bass 8.25, treble 6. I turn the master anywhere between 2 and 6. I onle go to 8 at max, cause it gets to loud.

I'm not trying to clown on you, but how can you not know what kind of head you have?!
I can't imagine buying and playing an amp and never even knowing what it is I bought!

Finding a tone that you are happy with can take a long time even with a good amp, and if you have a stinker you might not ever be able to get the sound you are after.
Having said that, some people can make a good amp sound bad, so if you doubt your ability to adjust your amp properly, try to find someone that can do it for you.

hardcore/metalcore/nu metal usually use no mids, and bass and treble at full. Can "fizz" a bit and lack substance though...

You said you have been playing with pedals for 4 years, why not use one as a boost or something for a bit more punchiness/ percussiveness/ whatever?

Or try:bass full, mids 6, treble 6.
or:bass 7, mids: 2, treble: 6

Man, fully cut mids just dont sound as good if you dont have a few external units to mess with the eq: eg. eq, pedal, mixing board, whatever.

i agree hardcore and metalcore arent the genres known for scooping there mids... i'd look more at nu metal.. or metallica(kinda nu metal), their mids are quite litterally at zero.

Okay fine, but most hardcore (living sacrifice etc) bands use extremely saturated distortion, which can be achieved on a shitty amp by scooping your mids...

man i'm into death metal, not hardcore/metalcore anyway.... I haven't heard that much of either, well not really listened to it anyway, but to me it sounded like the easiest way to get a sound reasonably like that is to scoop your mids and crank the bass a bit)

Is it just me or does pantera's tone or "Dimebags" tone make you orgasm, how does he get that crunch and percussive sound, same with John Shaffer (SP?) from iced earth, when he does those gallops its so clean and you can hear each individual gallop strum and each one is all crunchy and powerfull, its badass, i dunno how they do it.

i'd say death metal has a more scoopy tone to it than hardcore and metalcore...

Dimebag boost the mids on his amp but cuts them with his Parametric EQ.

John Schaffer uses a custom made amp buy some guy who only makes like 5 amps a year. Live he's been using the Powerball and DSL 100

plus studio magic of course!

Well I found out that my amp is a Peavy Transtube Sumpreme. It was on the back so I guess thats what it is.

I've got a good sound now. Its kinda like As I Lay Dying's, but I know they use Marshalls so it's still not quite like thiers. But I can't seem to get my gallops clean. They sound so...... shitty
