    That's interesting because Digitech has a downloadable pedal (which is also included on the RP units) called the Amp Driver which has an adjustable 600hz hump which they describe as a crucial frequency for the metal sound.

    Well, I wouldn't bother listening to any of my advice; cuz here, I only post mostly accurate cover tones/tunes recorded in my home studio.

    I mean, it's not like I'm pumping out originals left and right here - only then would I know anything about tone...

    Don't even worry about it man. I write originals for my band, do a lot of production work in my studio and I definitely appreciate and benefit from people who can deconstruct and emulate tones from scratch. We're all musicians at the end of the day.

    If you listened to that Michael Sweet rig rundown, he has a great metal crunch tone (voiced more 80's style, of course, but still metal).

    It's scooped to a point, but there's that wonderful "squeaky squonky" kinda honky pinch-harmonics-laden peaked midrange that just peeks out in the tone; notched of course.

    That's the 707Hz.

    No doubt. The frequency you hit the gain stages with is as if not more important that the output.

    Listening back to all the songs with Rockmans, it's a pretty d@mn serviceable tone especially for its time. I don't find it as thin as people have said. Even Painkiller and Dam That River don't lose any heaviness using Rockman heavy rhythm tones.

    Andy's Tone Tips contrasts getting an 80's tone using a Rockman X100 headphone amp, and then pedals:
