Referencing Pete Thorns video, where he explains how to get glassy cleans by having a wide open fuzz, and then dialing back the volume on your guitar, I'd like to find a way to do this without a fuzz. Here is his video: Nevermind what amp I'm using, etc.. (I have plenty of nice, tubey, Fendery cleans here, but that doesn't matter) What would YOU use to get the same glassy cleans without rolling down your volume, or having a fuzz in your effects chain? An EQ pedal, and a boost? Would an MXR Micro Amp produce a similar effect? TS808 with the gain down, and the volume up. What do you theorize might work, or what have you tried that does work? The problem I have with rolling off the guitar's volume for the effect to work with a fuzz is that it is difficult to make your standard sound. It would be different if you intended to roll the volume up, at certain times to take advantage of the fuzz. Then I wouldn't have an issue. If you aren't going to use the fuzz, however, it would be nice if there was another way to get there. All of the other things in you effects chain are going to behave differently at half volume. I would just love to find a way to do this sound at full volume. Any ideas?
