  1. General Music Discussion
    Got thinking the other day how some songs that have incredible riffs don't always have tones that fire me up, and some songs with great tones don't have great riffs. Then there's the sweet spot where that venn diagram overlaps. What 3 songs do that for you? Here's 3 for me: And, for a...

    https://www.guitarworld.com/artists/the-25-best-metal-guitar-tones-of-all-time There's a couple on there that I agree with, but it just reeks of "COOL HIPSTER GUY TRYING TO COME ACROSS AS RELAVENT/KNOWLEDGABLE". Thoughts? My own thoughts. -Master of Reality is the second best Ozzy Sabbath...

    "Tones From Hell now in AmpliTube Custom Shop Ferocious. Blistering. Soulful. Those are just three of many words one would use to describe the guitar tone of "Dimebag" Darrell Lance Abbott. Dime is considered one of the most influential guitarists of all-time and a legendary, genre-defining...

    What pedals do you use for enhancing your clean tones. The amp used is a 6505mh on the green channel. Only pedals used right now is a MXR 10 band eq, Maxon 808 od, and a Decimator noise gate. Have 1 guitar with Emg's, 1 with passive, been putting the pickup switch in the middle position.

    Great tones all around. I think the Sandberg was my favourite, followed by the Zon, and then the Sadowsky, especially when heard in a more full mix. Really, I'd be happy with any of them. The Sadowsky just seemed to get a bit flubby in the low end, and I love the punch of the Sandberg.

    So it seems people recommend 6666 for gain, low, mid, highs. Up to this point i have been fine with that as a generic high gain tone. But i would like more character to it. But i can't say i understand or can verbalize how the bright, crunch buttons shape the tone. Nor can i put into words...

    Choose wisely. In one corner, Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy on Holy War: In the other, Mike Inez on No More Tears: Go. Winner advances to take on the next contender! (How exciting!) :hans:

    Anyone use these? Been looking for something to use in the Gibson SG Baritone to make it match the Buckethead Les Paul in function but the reviews on these seem a but iffy. Some say it quits working after a while and seems really cheaply made. Looks like it'll fit with the thin SG body but the...

    I was pretty close to pulling the trigger on a local hardtail strat in a buddy of mine's shop, but then my wife's car needed the same cost in repairs. :lol: (No, wait, :() So, I think I'll instead take some time to sell off some things so that I can just order what I think I really want; that...

    You know the score, same format as the rectifier vid, but a slightly different flavour, and some lead tones this time! \,,/
