Delay pedal set too long?
The Gain Changer is on my main board too. Great pedal!
Thanks for asking!
It’s my 2003 MIJ Gretsch 1959 Nashville Classic, neck pickup (TV Jones Supertron), pots wide open, strung with D’Addarrio XL Heavy (12-54), 12 ft. right angle cable into a Roland Cube 80XL, JC Clean setting, a little spring reverb, a little delay (to tempo), volume at 11 O’clock.
My next favorite is the same guitar’s bridge pickup (TV Jones Classic+), same settings and conditions.
63 Harmonic Tremolo setting on my Strymon Flint into either the Bright channel of my Bassbreaker 45 set to full crunch or into a Wampler 57 into the Normal channel set to really low volume if other people are in the house
Telecaster Standard>Boss DS-2 (low gain/mid vol/Turbo II)> Mooer Green Mile (mid gain/high vol)> Orange Micro Terror (edge of breakup).
Heavy rock with a tele'. Lovely!
Those look like the speaker at a Drive In movie I use to go to
Mine is all over the map as I am in a continual state of tone chasing. One thing for sure is the fact that nobody has ever said that I sounded like so-and-so (albeit I have received good comments on the tone of my amp). Guess that means I have a personal tone as close as one can get; be it good or not so good.
Best tone? It's been a month with a broken wrist, I'm still tone free
So listening to Jimi's tone will have to do.
Using a VFE Klein Bottle to get trem, delay and reverb in parallel instead of series.
So sorry to hear it. Heal up brother!
Gretsch G2420 w/ Broadtrons , neck pickup into s MXR Fullbore Metal distortion pedal and a Boss GE-7 EQ into a Randall RG80.
Sorry to hear that. Have a speedy recovery.
Right this second I have the following plugged in:
Guitar-->Xotic SP compressor on the low mode--Catalinbread Katzenkonig distortion--Shoe Pixel fuzz--Morley volume--Montreal Assembly Count to Five--Chase Bliss Mood--Old Blood Noise Endeavors Rever--Catalinbread Adineko--Vox Dynamic Looper--Jam Man Solo out to Vox AC15 or Vox MV50 AC if I am playing through headphones or recording direct.
I'm very humble or simple. Guitar straight into a fender amp – I have a vibrolux and a blues jr. which I use depending on the venue. The guitar has been a telecaster for years, but this years I've been experimenting with thinline hollow bodies. An Ibanez JSM got replaced by a Gibson ES 335 and lately I got an ES 330 that I love. Strung it with flatwounds for now – but I'm sure I'll experiment with strings and string gauges some more. I also rediscovered my cheap Ibanez AG75 – the poor man george benson. We play more jazz flavoured music right now, so the hollow bodies cut that very good – for more funk and blues oriented music and rockabilly I'll still pull out a telecaster.
Apparently, my favorite tone is unattainable by me, so I am living vicariously though other players' tones, and wishing for a different amp.
Tele + cable + amp + playing the thing the way I want it to sound. Recently, I've been using a cel phone tuner, so I haven't even been plugging in my Pitchblack tuner most of the time. I have been using my Bassbreaker 15 combo a lot recently, and a Mesa Express Plus 5:25 here and there. But my Ampeg J-12T and '68 Princeton Reverb (a real one, not the new one) are probably the most played amps I own. Basically, small, relatively low-wattage combos with no effects boxes.
Les Paul w/ an Alter Ego V2 on the EP1 setting with a Marvel Drive is magic
There is definitely something going on with the Alter Ego, especially the tape echo sims beyond the delay. Adds magic.
Now and then I have a sense that my tone is my favorite, but an awful lot of the time I settle for tone that doesn't annoy me.
That takes a lot though, getting tone I don't find too this and not enough that or just missing that certain something the rig had yesterday.
But to answer the OP again, today I added another change to last weeks using a different guitar with a sort of experimental pickup arrangement. From the guitar I want both a SC brigdge sound I like and also a HB sound I like, which is tough because there is no HB sound I like so far.
Bought an old 18v Ibanez delay last night, and in anticipation hooked up the 12v Maxon delay I already have, but last instead of first.
For whatever reason, I prefer delay before dirt, but I decided that so many years ago I can't remember why.
Higher voltage delays should sound better with a hot signal, I suppose/ assume/ guess but have no evidence of.
Hoping the delay with dirt will sound better this way, and now the Firebird mini hum has an odd feedback on a few low notes, not squeal, but an odd resonance with certain frequencies.
Anyhow, changing up my rig I'm back to my sound annoying me.
