    Has anyone found a good Vildhjarta tone for the song Dagger through a 6505+?

    POD XT + Palmer and You're there ;)


    with peaveys I would use a heavy low pass filter and massive gain.

    It's a pod XT live + Boss E.Q pedal into a D.i system of some sort, I think possibly a radial D.I box but I can't be sure of that.

    Based on what I know of the pods I've had, there's not much gain to their setup, just a lot of mids. Pods are notorious for having much more gain that you really need to use. I have a great high gain patch I use live with D.I for the HD500 and my engl amp gain is on 10%

    I think everyone's comments are in the right direction.

    I am not blown away by their live tone though. Seems painfully compressed. Their sound might be idealized/perfected for more of a studio mix.

    Um, yeah, as is the tone on their album. It's cool for the album, but not the type of tone I can imagine anyone would ever want live, 'in-the-room'.

    Yes, PODs can definitely nail the tone.

    Their new album screams the Big Bottom model. Also, they have an almost wah-like top end that I really like on that album.

    That's the POD XT for you. Vildhjarta swears by them because of "that" sound that only the XT's produce.

    Blast your highs and presence, lower everything else and dje-dje-dj-dj-djent your heart out.

    Also, add a couple noise gates and a bunch of compression.
