    Needing input from owners past/present of Tech 21 Paradrivers and RPMs. I am trying to achieve a tone similar to that of Marco Hietala of Nightwish. The reputation of these Tech 21 pieces seems to be that they are great at achieving a blended clean and dirty signal, so they seem like natural choices to try to achieve this tone. So, if you've had experience with these two, in your experience/opinion do you think that this tone (or something reasonably close) could be achieved, assuming picks and precision pickups are also in play?

    Any other suggestions are also welcome.
