Try turning up the treble on your amps clean channel.

Your common sence is poorer than your ability to spell.
If he can do Pinch Harmonics on his amplifiers channel and not a different distortion than by all sencability you can conclude its the channel.

It's hard to tell but sometimes i get some clipping when i have the mids all sucked out and treble high. try kicking up the mids either on your pedal or the amp itself.

Try turning the middle tone knob on the Satchurator so you get a sound with more treble. If that doesn't work, it may be your technique.

Clearly he is using bad technique. If he can do a pinch harmonic properly then he should be able to do one no matter what pedal he is using/what his eq and gain settings are.

It's your technique.
But, the Satchurator might compress your signal less than your amp's distortion, and that might make pinch harmonics not stand out as much.
Also, can you please post clips of the Satchurator?

"Cant seem to get a pinch harmonic out of my pedal"

There's no harmonics IN the pedal. I think you're searching in the wrong spot.

yeah just try messin with the EQ on the pedal...If you can do them when the pedal is not engaged there is no reason for you to not be able to when it is other than that...good luck!

Actually, there's plenty of reason, his technique. His distortion channel probably just amplifies his weak (no offense) PHs better than the pedal.

I'm just gonna take a guess, and say that TS has a typical SS practice amp.
The lead channel on those types of amps compress your tone like under armor shorts that are 2 sizes small. That would make PHs more noticeable.

Exactly. Practice doing them on the clean channel, once you have that down then they should ring out fine when the pedals on.

I was assuming triviumman had pretty good technique if he could do them consistently without the pedal, so I was offering the next best thing...I saw technique as a given

And I can get pinch harmonics without a pick, so to TS: You're doing it wrong.

Actually he didn't. You can use spelled or spelt, misspelled or misspelt. I believe spelled is the more american version.

And it's spelt grammar.

Oh, and it's 'worse than'

If you're gonna correct or deride someone for grammar or spelling, at least put in some effort yourself

You forgot a comma, sir.

Now, since this thread has been nothing but grammatical masturbation thus far, one could infer that said thread is no longer of any use to any one.

My grammar and spelling are correct. If they're not, I care not.



To the thread starter:

It's your technique, not your signal, instrument, or pedal, that is inhibiting your ability to perform pinch harmonics while your pedal is on.

Sorry to inform you of this unfortunate occurrence.

Grammar.

Also, to TS, pinch harmonics take a lot of time to perfect, so make sure you practice.

Okay i'm having the same problem here: Satchurator hooked up to a Vox AD30VT.

I've only just started learning how to pinch, and i can get the sort of sound but it sounds VERY weak.
#40
Practise foo'.

I can do pinch harmonics on a clean guitar's neck pickup with the tone rolled all the way off. High gain will help you to an extent.
