Re: how do you get your gain?

I use a sort of similar way of getting my gain as lynchfan6, the thing is that my amp is a SLO100 copy and I put a Visual Sound J&H in front of it and depending on the mood I can use the amp's own gain (never more than 7), boost it with a Ts808 or with a DS1 (it's amazing how good the J&H is at getting those pedal's sounds)

Amp gain + overdrive pedal to tighten up the low end.

Re: how do you get your gain?

I use all possible methods to get my gain:

1. Amp gain only
2. Amp gain (lower gain tho) + Sparkle Drive boost or modded DS-1
3. Clean channel + Metal Zone

All three methods sound different and all three have their uses.

Re: how do you get your gain?

I get most of my gain from the distortion channel on my Rectoverb, and sometimes use a Bodenhamer Chaos Mod Tubescreamer for a bit of pre-shaping (gain almost off, level about halfway up, tone to taste).
