I've recently been trying to dial in a solid high gain "tremonti" tone but can't quite reach it.

What Im experimenting with now is Metal red with medium gain + a stomp effect to boost. I'd like to stick with the screamer because a green screamer boosting a metal amp at medium gain is a combination I'm very familiar with BUT it's just not boosting the gain enough without needing to turn up the screamers drive, which kind of defeats the purpose.

If I crank the amps gain, I get the fizz. If I drop the highs, I get mud.

Not only that but it's way to middy. I like mids, but this stomp effect seems to be all mids or none.

Does anyone have any advice or experience in this type of tone setup?
