    Too gainy IMO... turn that knob down a bit and let the amp do the talking.

        is that how bad boss pedals are????

        Honestly, I just have an arbitrarily poor opinion of Boss pedals in general so I that's the brand that came to mind. Actually, I once had an Ibanez Metal Charger pedal that sounded like this.

            Keep recording. Keep listening to yourself. You'll figure out what you like. It may take some years of fine tuning but you'll find your sound. If no one likes it then....... ****************'em!

                That doesn't sound very metal.

                Needs more BREWTALZ.

                    sounds like my old gameboy
                    all along this path i tread
                    my heart betrays my weary head
                    with nothing but my soul to save
                    from the cradle
                    to the grave

                      Your sounding like your playing through a Cheap Solid State amp with the OD Button pushed on. Just that over processed, buzzing Tone that really only gives up some decent Harmonic Tone's. Which your not focusing on anyway?

                      By the way I didn't read the thread so I don't even know what your playing through at the momnt.

                      IMO I like a Cleaner more Natural Tone were you can appeciate the Quality of a guitar like a Strat or a Les-Paul. But hey this is all my opinion, which that and $1.00 will get you a coffee.
