Well, I have a Marshall MG ( ) and when I angle my pick too much, it get a...."chang" sound. It's very hard to explain. My question is: Will a new (tube) amp fix this sound? It's very annoying...

For you MG owners (I'm hoping this is very few of you...), turn up the dist. and angle a 2mm pick to somewhere aroun 45 degrees. Don't palm mute. Then, strike the low e string with the very tip of the pick, barely grazing it. You might be able to understand what I'm talking about then.

I think this is normal, but will be slightly different depending on amps/pickups and such.

i kno what u mean
is one of those really thick and wide picks?
my friend uses like a bass pick for his guitar and he uses an mg
it makes such an ugly noise and he hasnt figuured out how to fix.
what guitar do u use on it?

You're slicing the string with the side of your pick, which produces a really scratchy and treble tone. Use the front of the pick, don't slice.

That is the sound of incorrect picking technique, not your amp.

Agreed. If it only makes that sound when you hold the pick a certain way, DON'T HOLD THE PICK THAT WAY!

Yes, you said it yourself... "when I angle my pick too much, it get a...."chang" sound". Fix your technique.

I've never gotten that sound...I think it's what the others said, bad picking technique.
