That was me with the 2027/TZ7 combo, and the Godsmack sound. It CAN sound like the tone is rolled off, esp. in mahogany, but! Here's the caveat... this can be muddy, IF you're not careful. However, the mids of the TZ7 can actually bring UP clarity. You just have to watch your EQ settings. Having alot of mids before you hit the preamp can give you some mega crunch, (BTW, the TZ works extremely well IMHO in a band setting. Like most, I like a more 'scooped' sound, and that's great for bedroom jamming. But in a band, I'm always ADDING mids. Brings the sound out, and fits in the mix better. At high volumes, bass EQ is for the bass guitar. The guitar itself needs to be solidly mid-heavy to cut. Just an aside.)
So, at any rate, with lots of mids, you just shape the EQ at the amp. I use a semi-parametic EQ, and for my rhythm sound I like to cut the low mids around 600Hz or so, and boost the upper mids at aroun 2.5Kz, give or take. You can get a great, bone-jarring crunch with the TZ7 like this, and it has a LOT of bit and cut (I also usually boost the treble a bit.) With high gain, the TZ7's treble can come right back and bite you, so, I guess it all depends how you do it. For lead settings, gimmie mids I say. 1-2K boost all over the place.
