One thing I don't understand is buying an expensive multi-channel amp (Mark V, JVM etc.) and only using the clean channel and distortion pedal. I'm sure people could get the same sound for much cheaper.

I don't understand this and many other things I have seen!!! Many people for example are using digital multieffects with tube amps......

How many people actually do this though?

How many people sit there with a Mesa and put a boss metalzone in front of it?

I really want to learn why people hate Line 6 amps..... I thing Line 6 is a good manufacturer, but I don't like modeling amps because I want analog signal proccesing....

If I remember right, I heard that Joe Satriani uses Marshall JVM and distortion pedal through its clean channel. Not sure, though.

I doubt he uses that stuff in the studio.

And if we're talking pro musicians you also have to take into account other things such as endorsement deals. They're his signature pedals and he's probably getting a small amount from each sale or a lump sum for his signature.

I think that great guitarists can sound good no matter what they use. I can't judge a person like Joe Satriani, but I would never use this combination of amp and pedals. It is a matter of personal taste, though.

Technique and tone are two seperate ideas. Don't start that crap in here, this thread is already inaccurate enough as it is.

I wouldn't say a LOT. A heavy picker can add a little bit of output. playing closer to the bridge makes a thinner trebleyer sound, while closer to the neck gives a fatter sound with more of a bass focus. You can have more fluid pull-off/hammer-ons that feel like one long varying note, or they can be more distinctive. But all those differences are 1% the difference between an Orange Rockerverb and a Fender Twin.

I believe the same thing when it comes to tonewoods or what kind of joint a guitar has. But maybe you're right.

I respect every opinion, because it helps me think everything by many different aspects.

Technique can change the 'timbre' of the sound, but the generally accepted use of the term 'tone' in electric guitar has to do with the equipment, not the player.

A great guitar player through a terrible amp will sound like a technically great guitar player, however the actual character of the sound will still be terrible. Electric guitar is completely reliant on the amplifier, it literally does not work without being amplified, so to say that a great player will sound great through anything is just ridiculous.
