Greetings, so I got an axe 8 for Xmas, and have been messing around with amps and effects and such and I’m such a tone slut that I need some advice. How do I obtain more “purr” like Misha has talked about. I want my power chords and open chugs to bloom as articulately as possible. Songs like “servant in the place of truth” by the acacia strain, and the contortionists first album has guitar tones that make me wet. So, when I strike an open power chord in drop C or whatever, then palm mute and chug again simultaneously,, I want that BAwhoom kind of a sound. Any and as much input as possible is encouraged. (Amps, SETTINGS, drives, cabs, etc.)

Id say a lot factors into getting the tone you want. What type of guitar/pickups are you using. I know Misha keeps his drive relatively low with mids around noon and tone slightly boosted. If you have an Axe8 and want those types of tones I'd recommend downloading Misha's presets he made for Fractal and learn from his signal chain. idk if any of that helps lol

Thanks! I go back and forth between my shecter hellraiser 8 with bare knuckle aftermaths and my American tele with stock pickups. Do you know the best amps or cabs to use to achieve what I stated above? Oh and where do I go to download the Misha patches?
