Hello all...im new to TB and have been searching/reading posts looking for some suggestions to get a mean tone...
i run an ibanez SR500 and a PF500 with a 1x15 fender cab (i think the cab was custom built by the previous owner to beef up his fender bxr200 amp and get it down to 4 ohms) plus i recently (3 days ago) purchased the much talked about Tech 21 VT Bass V.2 which, so far, has me very satisfied with the purchase....im not, nor ever have been, an effects guy, i like keeping it simple and straight forward, but damn that vt sounds good.
So heres the deal...any PF500 owners play metal? My band gets compared to Pantera alot (which is fine by me cause Pantera was my inspiration to start playing guitar in the first place) and im looking to get a that nice clear/dirty/punchy/aggressive/growl that Rex gets (best example would be the intro to 'I Cant Hide off' of 101 proof... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xztlw0zFXQY
I have only been able to go thru the headphone jack of the amp so far because i leave my cab at our jam spot, so i know the settings im using now will be useless once im going into my cab.
if anyone can make any suggestions about settings on both the PF500 and the VT Bass i would like to hear them..all of them.
also id love to hear from any metal heads in general, send me some links of your band im always looking to find new bad a$$ bands
