giallanon Posted July 10, 2015 Share Posted July 10, 2015 I'm using hd500x and StageSource L2T and an ibanez EGEN18 (Herman Lee signature). I've foudn a nice distort sound, pretty big on E string, a little less on A string but still good, very thin and "metallic" on D string. I've played with EQ trying to find a good freq to boost the palm muted D string, but with no luck. I've also played at rehearsal volume (and we play pretty high with the double bass that kick so hard..), so it's not a volume problem It could be a problem in my technique, but even if I try to play slow, moving the right hand around the bridge, I still can't find a somewhat fat sound on D string. To some extents, the problem is even worse on G and B string, I can't get the nice palm muted sound like in the intro of welcome to the jungle for example, but this is primaly a fault of mine, since I can get a quasi decent sound from G and B string if I really really pay attention. Anyway, last night I've tried a Les Paul of a friend of mine (into a Line6 spider combo) and I could sound fat on D string (and G and B). Surely the Les Paul helped a lot in this case, but I guess that with a bit of eq in the right spot(s), I can reach my goal with my equipment. Any tips?
