Straight up Modern High Gain Tone

New to the BTBAM world. Whats goin' on.

I need TONE. I cannot seem to get the right tones out of my Mesa Dual Rec Trem-O-Verb. I want clean sweeping, intestinal grinding, dgent/chug producing nasty tone. I have a Line 6 PodxtLive foot switch that sounds really good when directly recording, but i want to get some audible, true tube tone out of my Mesa. I have tried a Carl Martin Compressor/Limiter with gain to get better attack but something is still missing. Solutions?

I am also ordering Dimarzio D Activators for my Prestige Ibanez. Any reviews?

I understand all the Recto hate, but ya'll don't know jack about dialing them in, once you get that sound - the projection and crunch is unparalleled.

Engl Powerballs are great for a plug and play amp because they sound decent with just about any settings and they sound good in the mix of a live setting because of the mids they crank out, but they lack the Mesa soul I described above and end up sounding pretty sterile and grindy.

They both have tremendous downfalls and advantages that hold both companies back, it would be cool if Mesa bought Engl and they put their stupid heads together to build the perfect high gain amp.

However...

The Dual Rectifier Trem-o-Verb is an amazing amp, this dude should sell it, to me.

The P-Ball crushes children, but doesn't produce the juicy tube sound I think this guy is looking for.

I thought that too, until you look closely and realize it's demo Fievel or something.

I saw Fievel Goes West in the theater when I was 5...I still vaguely remember it.

I think the first movie I ever saw in a theater was Dick Tracy, though...

I personally would pick an ENGL tone over any other of the high gain amps. I've tried out the SE EL34, and it just completely blew my mind. It's got an unparalleled amount of options built right into it, and the tone will make a Line6 player cream their pants.
