    How would you describe and dial in this guitar tone? (At ~4:20 in video)

    Came across an amp demo video and heard this guy dial in a tone right at the 4:20 mark that is pretty much the tone I strive for (and haven't yet achieved): I think part of my issue is that I'm not really sure how one would properly describe that tone from an EQ perspective other than saying...

    Your Personal Tone

    How would you describe your personal tone? Whose tone is it similar to? How do you get it? What amp, settings, strings, pickups, pedals etc. do you use to achieve this? Thanks!

    Packed- Telecaster Wiring with mixed pickups

    Hello all. Long time viewer first time caller.:) I might be the outlier here. I am a bit of a minimalist. I only want to own one electric guitar, instead of having many for different purposes. I have a SH Telecaster that I am fixing up. Humbucker is in the bridge. I am doing a full rewire of...

    Greasebucket tone with switch

    Has anyone here tried this modified greasebucket circuit? I'm trying to come up with a circuit that will allow me to switch between a "normal" tone circuit (with a 50 nF cap; this guitar's stock tone circuit) and greasebucket. The corresponding value of the other cap should be around 28 nF (...

    Orange Micro Dark Owners

    I picked one of these up for almost nothing at a garage sale with the little 8 inch cab that goes with it. I am not impressed with the cab at all, however, I plugged it into a 2x12 and it has become one of my favorites. I started playing with tube change and settled on a vintage RCA 12av7...

    Pedal order and buffers help!!

    Hey gang just made a new pedalboard for my single (clean) channel amp and have setup the pedals to what order i think should have them in. Currently the 2 Boss pedals are the only ones with always on buffers (the fuzz can go anywhere apparently being digital). The OCD and Soul Food both have...

    Better tone in mix with Telecaster and germanium fuzzface mini

    Hi everyone, I faced a major problem with my american tele tone, using fuzz face and a minor tone problems with fulltone fulldrive. My bandmate uses epiphone riveria p93 with bigmuff Pi, and i just can't cut through the mix, when my solo part time comes. What can you advice me in that situation...

    Love and hate with the Soul Food, how do you use it?

    The soul food is an odd pedal for me. I want to like it, and on some days I really do, but I can't seem to decide what it is really meant for. First, it is loud for my home use. Idk why but its either too loud around 9 o'clock or it goes full mute below that, and thats with the drive way up...

    2x10 speakers for deluxe reverb?

    Hi all, I have a 65 ri deluxe reverb with a 2x10 baffle loaded with two wgs veteran 10s. I really like the vet 10s vintage tone but was considering other options too, so any recommendations? Also would you say 1x12 is better than 2x10 configuration? Thanks.

    Tele + Vox Brightness Help

    Hi guys! Totally new to this forum, but I've been reading posts as a guest for awhile! So excited to get to know this wonderful community. I’m going to give a lot of exposition to avoid the inevitable “more details needed” replies ;) My main telecaster is the current model Nashville Deluxe...

    Another Tele Bridge Question - I know....

    Alright forgiveness in advance for what I know is another JV question. I have a MIM Tele, I put in Fender locking tuners, had it set up + fret level, and threw in Cavalier Fat Lion bridge and Fat Lion King neck with a tone bypass mod. Overall pickups are terrific, but sometimes I'm wanting...

    Why are so many people down on attenuators, but want master volumes?

    Attenuators may be the hill I'll die on... I'm always advocating people use them to get bedroom-volume amp sounds, even out of totally high-wattage amps. I advocate for this, cause I use attenuators all the time and have always gotten great tone out of them (after I take like the 3 minutes...

    What is your favorite wiring option for tone pots on a strat?

    Yesterday i got a nearly new Squier Std strat. (incredible price). I want to connect the tone pot to the bridge. I have been reading options online (TONE 1: N + M / TONE 2: B) (TONE 1: N / TONE 2: M + B). Disconnecting the tone from the middle pickup don't convince me. I didn't know that...

    Stratocaster locking tone knobs

    So I just installed 2 push/pull pots for my tone controls in my stratocaster. I'm looking for some knobs that will not come off when you pull up on the push/pull pots. I know theres silver knobs that you can tighten with a hex key but i'm looking something more ummm traditional looking. Or just...

    The Tone! Neil Young's "Eldorado" on Freedom

    As a young kid learning to play the acoustic guitar, I started off with the classic Neil Young stuff, along with CSNY. If I recall correctly, the album Freedom came out when I was in junior high school, and I listened to it a good bit at that time. I believe this was just before Eddie Vedder was...

    Fender Mustangs and Original ‘81-‘83 Bullets

    Hi, I had a question about Fender Mustangs and the original Fender Bullets (S-1, S-2, S-3) made from ‘81 to ‘83. From my understanding, the original Fender Bullets were created with leftover guitar parts. And the pickups that were used on the Bullets were leftover Mustang pickups. I don’t...

    Passive high pass tone circuit for stompbox.

    Im building a stompbox/kickdrum box and want to add a capacitor that sends basically everything sharply above about 80hz to ground. Like the opposite of a low cut on a mixer channel. Id like it just plug in, dial in volume (on input on mixer with no eq option) and play, and not have to use the...

    What the heck is “tone” anyway?

    Hi. I hear “tone is in my / your / the fingers” quite a lot. To be honest, I’ve never understood this. To me, ‘tone’ means the quality / pitch / interval of sounds. In other words, the general character, quality, flavour, mood, etc., including degrees of smoothness and harshness. Or, to...

    Bone Ray tone, Volume before or after?

    Hello all, I’m experimenting with an amp, and after the first triode I put the volume, theN leading into the Bone Ray tone controls. My question is if the volume was after instead, would it make a difference? Is it supposed to be that way? Thanks, -Drew. PS. The Bone Ray stack is a mid...

    Is a tube amp something for me?

    Where to start. I have 2 amps an AMT Stonehead which is a marvelous little amp and a Mesa F50. The AMT gets icepicky at a certain volume. The Mesa however, seems to have such a big potential in power (for lack of a better description) that every confident hit on the strings blows the volume...

    5F2-A volume & tone pots: audio (log) or linear taper

    As I assemble parts for a 5F2-A (Tweed Princeton narrow panel) build, I am confused about the best taper to use for volume and tone control pots. Based on recent research: Vintage Fender schematic is non-specific, but their layout shows "LIN." for both volume and tone. Weber kit layout and...

    Tele with NON-master Tone Pot?

    Hi! Can a Pickup 1st go just to one tone control and then into a shared volume? Is a tele with a master volume but one pickup only tone possible? I’d like to dial-in(preset?) some ‘warmth’ into the shrill Pup @TheBridge to take some edge off but am only familiar with three different set ups...
