What are good settings for a Smashing Pumpkins-like sound? Please don't tell me as a response new amp or to go get the Billy Corgan strat, because I dont know about you but I can't afford that.

My guitar is an epiphone G-400 and my amp is a line 6 spider valve 112

help would be appreciated.

Its not about the Radio its about talent, the front man has a bigger vocal range than Micheal Jackson and he can sing from heavey metal to high pitched ...No.12 on the top 20 under rated guitarists of ALL TIME...etc

Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins
For songs like 1979:

Bass: 8
Mid: 7
High/Treble: 6
Pickup Position: 2 or 4 (Strat)

For heavier songs like Zero or Jellybelly:

Bass: 10
Mid: 4
High/Treble: 8

Use a thick heavy distortion with medium tone and a lot of sustain.

Didn't Corgan use a Big Muff in the 90's?

You're using a guitar with 2 humbuckers, he used 3 singles...You might have a hard time getting the same sound that he had. anyways the guy above me posted the right link.


well i also have a crappy squier bullet from sometime in the 90s im guessing, it might work.

then again, it sounds like ass
