Scooped Mids

This is a general description of the guitar tone most typically associated with heavy metal rock. Generally there is plenty of low and high end, but the midrange is cut or “scooped,” often rather sharply, either using onboard amplifier tone controls or by using an external equalizer. Several manufacturers offer pedals that include both distortion effects and scooped mids.
