Ok. Here it is: The Background I have Dr Z Z28. I have a Diamond J-Drive and a Keeley modded Metal Zone. I have a Les Paul and a Tele. When I play the Tele through the J-Drive, it sounds amazing. No qualms. When I play the Tele throught the MT2, it sounds like bees in a jar. This is not so with the Les Paul (as would be expcted). The Question Any ideas on a compressor, eq, or combination, that will help to tame the highs and give a little be more chunk, before hitting the MT2? I like the voicing of the MT2, so changing it is not an option. Using different guitars isn't an option because often I need the different tones in the same song. I want the cleans of the Tele, and am trying to find a way to sculpt the Heavy Gain tones coming from it. I'd rather not drop a SC in the Les Paul or a HB in the Tele. I'm thinking that if I put the MT2 into a separate loop, with an EQ/comp to tame the highs and just thicken it up a bit, I'll be good to go. A multiband compressor would be ideal. Note: yes, running into a 2x12 or 4x12 closed back cab would help. I'm trying to get as much out of this combo as possible live.
