i was wondering if anybody new how petrucci gets his tone. i absolutely love it. i dont mean gear...i no duel recto, lone star, miced 2x12 and 4x12 blah blah. i was wondering if anybody new amp settings. maybe somebody who has a tone similar to his.

i play out of a single rectifer with a mesa 2x12, so i should be able to get fairly close to what im looking for.

im looking for his rythem tone. i love the heavy but clear distortion sound he gets on scenes from a memory. songs like fatal tradgedy, and overture 1928. i love that heavy tone, but its so clear at the same time.
