To get the tone of metal greats, start by turning the gain on you amp to 10. Adjust the master volume to your level. Turn your treble to 8 and bass to 7. If possible cut out all the mids you can. If you run through a preamp, you may be able to take the mids below 0. Try it and adjust to what suits you taste. If you have EMG or Gibson pickups, this will make a huge difference in your sound. Just play with the settings untill you find what you like.
