Meddling With Metal Tones Part 3

Part 3 of my 4 part series on achieving the tone of prominent metal bands is out now on the Sam Ash Spotlight Blog. It’s focused on Nu-Metal and Alternative Metal, and features the gear of The Deftones, Korn, and Slipknot.

If you think this is going to be a lot of seven-string guitars tuned-down…you’re right. But the intricacy of the instruments these guys use and the differences in amps/effects goes pretty deep. It took a lot of time to try and get it fully accurate. They all have long careers and have switched up their equipment here and there. But I enjoyed writing it and I hope you enjoy reading it.
