Hi all. I know some of you guys play heavier stuff on your Studio Classic amps. I've liked System of a Down for a long time but I've never had an amp that I thought was capable enough in stock form. I know they used layered tracks and a lot of studio tricks producing their Toxicity album, but would it be possible to get Daron Malakian's core (distorted) guitar tone using my SC20H without doing any permanent mods to the amp, and at a neighbor-friendly volume? I mean convincingly close, not exact. I know he used LP's and SG's as well as JCM 800's. Here is an example of what I'm after: or this (different album) I would appreciate any tips, suggestions, a starting point? Here's what I currently have to work with: Marshall SC20H + SC212 cab (all stock) Fryette Power Station PS-2 Gibson Les Paul Studio (498T), Gibson SG '61 Standard (57 Classics) Boss SD-1, GE-7, BD-2, DOD 250 ri, RAT 2 I would like to get most of my gain (and tone) from my amp, as little as possible from my pedal(s). I am willing to get a new pedal or other gear, if required. I'm not saying that I can play like DM, but I want to at least get the tone right and then work on the rest. I'm mostly a punk player...but would like to add some metal skills! Please let me know if this tone is not achievable with the SC20H. Thanks!
