My metal tone sounds small and wimpy. It doesn't sound chunky.
I have a nice sound, it's a percussive djent-esque distortion with a nice eq. It just doesn't go CHUG CHUG. It goes 'duh duh' instead.
I'm using a chorus to add that 3D quality but it still doesn't sound rich and full.
I don't have a Les Paul and nor do I care for how somebodies Historics sound and I certainly don't give a sh*t how your new caps sound. I just want a new forum to go and roll over to that's busy. Guitargeek looks kind of cool...
Yeah the Sonic Stomp is helpful. With the Big Muff it does go a bit farty, because the Big Muff has so much low end anyway. A compressor just does not work with the Big Muff, because it is so naturaly compressed. A booster would work to make it sound more fuzzy (Jack White springs to mind for...
I've started listening to Radiohead again, especially King Of Limbs. I really like that atmospheric stuff. So split between a the poll options, boost, eq and something that gives that 'haunting' quality.
It sounds very god but it's not exactly groundbreaking. It reminds me of an MXR GT-OD or a Distortion III. All of that kind of hard rock bluesy drive.
I'd love to have that with a leslie cabinet and crank it loud and use it for a slight drive!
I want to improve the existing sound. I don't know how. I want 'more'. I don't know how to describe it. I like the way a boost gives you 'more' than your existing sound. Like that. I can't describe it. A boost might be needed idk :S
Since this thread was born, I tried out a load of compressors and none of them really got it for me. They didn't react very well to the Big Muff and I've found you can get a very nice mellow sound just using the Gretsch neck pickup instead of a Compressor (Compressor works amazing for my...
Nice sketchy board and that Tuner looks old as F!
I'm deciding between the bike chain lock idea or just a collector of really strong velcro and cableties (My velcro is poor to say the least).
I also need to choose between a compressor, sonic stomp or noise gate.
That's the problem.
I have the choice of some really good pedals to go on the end of my rig to tighten up the sound which include some sort of noise gate, Boss CS3 Compressor, EHX Soul Preacher Compressor and a BBE Sonic Maximiser.
So hard to choose.
Hmm this is such a big thing to decide.
Hand build something that could potentially be bad quality or make something that is good and have the pride that you built it yourself. Or you can go and buy something very lazily that will do the job amazingly well...
Does anybody have any pedalboard designs where the pedals stay stable to the board and won't slip off in transit.
I want something where you don't have to carry it two handed, and I can hold it one hand and have the guitar case in the other.
It's a weird idea but something similiar to this...
