since i play guitar, im trying to get as close as possible to get Tom Delonges live tone from the linked video below for punk related music.

I know that his Overdrive - Tone comes from a Mesa Rectifier (you can obviously see it in the video) and a Marshall JCM 900 for clean/crunch. Many people think he blends both tones together, but he doesn't!
I have the same guitar with the same pickup and the same strings. I have a Mesa Cab (or Mesa Cab-Sim when playing at home with Monitors) but no Mesa Rectifier-Profile i've tried so far comes close.
The biggest problem is, that they all get fuzzy in the bottom end when palm muting. But the mutes from Tom are nice and tight.
I do have a sound that is pretty much his clean/crunch sound, but I need suggestions for the Distorted-Main tone.
