Hello
Just curious
Do you use shred mode for your high gain tones?
Or an OD pedal?
Or just the amp itself?

I find that I need either an OD or Shred engaged to have a percussive tone.
Maybe Petrucci has a much stronger pick attack....

I just go with the amps gain alone, usually channel 2 pulled. I do run hotter pups in all my guitars tho and I’m sure that makes a difference.

Depends. Lately more shred than not. I've been running the treble low, 11 o'clock, presence pushed in but high, like 3-4 o'clock and that gets the gain up. Ch2 gain at 10-11 o'clock pushed, ch3 at 4 o'clock pushed, master at 10 o'clock, (if you can hear me 'it's too loud'") I'd prefer the master at around 11:30 but "that's TOOOOOO loud, whaaaaaaa......!" . The EV speaker(s) I use mellow the amp considerably.
Shred depends on song when I play live, it's on when I practice at home but sometimes with the song I'm playing live I don't want shred.

Mmmmmmm, shred good!

Nothing... and turn up the volume. The shred mode can be a little over the top depending on tubes and pups. Petrucci uses an od pedal with his fyi.

I heard, JP uses shred mode for very low tuned fast (7-string) riffs for a better cut and OD pedals on CH3 for lead lines.

I'm not shure if it is the best choice for lead playing. Circuit wise, it is just an additioinal RC filter (cuts the bass) just before the gain stage.

You can have shred on on ch2 for RHY and shred off on ch3 for LEAD.

Grid slammer or nothing. Shred is fine to get the bass to tighten up at low volume settings. I would probably use it more if I detuned or had a 7 or 8 string guitar.
