There you go. Modern = tones that did not exist in the past? Still not really a description of sound though. But definately a good description of what a sound can't be.If we are starting with vintage tone we should add "modern" to the list. What does "modern" tone sound like?
When I think of a classic Fender tone, I tend to think 'chrome' describes it well for me. Like the guitar sounds in Chris Isaak's music. That's what it sounds like to me, anyway: shiny, clean, chrome.Fenders seem to get their own descriptions...jingle, jangle, quack, spanky cleans, etc..
Not even funny: almost each and every OD pedal's advert will give a minimum of 4 lines checked in just the first 3 sentences. You have to make it a bit harder if you want the game to be entertaining.i have heard chewy used to describe univibes and it kind of makes sense.
i made this a while back.....seems relevant here
It's amazing the adjectives people don't know! I thought everybody had a music teacher who referred to things as sounding reedy. I laughed it off, it was kinda funny because it was a long list of descriptive posts about the amp, all using muddy, jangly, brown-ish, 18 watter, British, and American words, and he picked my post about reedy-ness to pick on for this very topic. Bwaha.Obviously a moron. "Reed" refers to a whole class of instruments. Doh!
