Help with 8 string tone

Recommended Posts

I am rather new to the helix but I have been messing around with it for awhile. I have no issue getting high gain 7 string tones but for my 8 string its a different story. Ill attach a few youtube links below to show you what kinda 8 string tone im looking for. If anyone can give me any advice on how to achieve them it would be greatly appreciated.

Hey! The two notes are very different and require different approaches. I have an Ibanez M80M, so here's my wisdom (might not work for you or in your music, but hey, this is a forum :D)

 

For me, frequency split and a bass cab is the key. I use a 3Sigma audio Zilla cab with an Ampeg 4x10 IR, everything under 500hz goes through the bass cab. It clears out pretty much the low end for me. Send me your mail in PM and I'll share my preset with you.
