    Default Too harsh E string???

    https://soundcloud.com/matias-nicolasb/1a-1

    I don't know if this is a problem or not but i don't like how it sound the E string in my jackson js22 7 with a duncan distortion

    it can be heard in 0:06 and 0:14, it's like too pounded and doesn't happen in other chords/strings, trying to hit the string softer doesn't change so much

    Change the string. It's the cheapest thing in your sound chain.

    Niice Jackson man!

    Try lowering the pole(just a sliver at a time) under that string. That's my only guess.

    Try a plain nickel string.
