Metallica Live

Small tip - you should probably include details like what guitar you used when building this preset, FW version etc. Otherwise if you (for example) built it on a Strat with single coils, then users would try it with humbuckers and tell you it is too overdriven/boomy etc. Also are you aiming for a specific song in mind (given they have quite a range they play - e.g. Creeping Death sounds very different to Sad But True) or is this more a generic one preset that does it all?

Just setting the scene a little on your side will greatly improve the feedback from users.

EDIT: My gear is all packed away at the mo so I haven't been able to give you any actual feedback on the preset, sorry!

Thanks!
I use the LTD Demonolgy guitar which have the EMG Bonebreakers.

The sound I am aiming for is mostly the Hardwired songs and the Kill em all stuff.

Having said that - I’ve attended three Metallica concerts in the last three years -

1. Baltimore - open stadium - was probably somewhere between the front and the middle section. The sound was great! Everything was mostly crystal clear.

2. Milwaukee - indoor basketball stadium- was right up front and 5 mins into the concert I realised it’ll be about seeing my musical idols within touching distance from me, because I wasn’t able to hear anything! It was just loud noise! I was able to follow the songs only because I knew them inside out.

3. S&M night 2 - Sat in level 1 here. The sound was crystal clear.


My aim is to get close to the sound which was present in the first show. It was really full, with just the right amount of gain which gave the heavy downstrokes enough lunch but at the same time the clarity which made every note stand out.

I play it and Metallica tribute band and I do the Kirks parts on the songs.... I’ll try out this preset later and let you n ow what I think. This is my Hetfield clean I started working on today on the AXE 3
This is great!! It reminded me of so many Metallica classics that I had forgotten about! You played them so well and it sounds really close too!

Thanks for sharing it!
