One thing we've been having trouble with as a fairly new band in our scene is getting a good balance between the lead guitar (me) and the rhythm guitar (handled by our lead vocalist). A common problem that I hear from people is that I tend to turn down way too much and my solos don't get heard. Currently, both of us play guitars equipped with humbuckers (Epiphone SG for me, fake Dean for our vocalist), but our vocalist will be getting a Mustang in a few weeks. Traditional, before-the-show soundchecks are rare in our scene; we're expected to do that within the time frame of our set, and some venues (smaller ones) have only the vocals going into the P.A. so the amps and drums are not mic'ed up. How do you guys (particularly bands who self-soundcheck) go about setting levels and dialing amps for two distorted guitars and what are the good EQ profiles for each?
