Hey I was just wondering how guitarists make that kinda "glassy" sound like in the solos in Last Child by Aerosmith or many Slash solos.

I don't really think its a wah pedal. It kinda sounds like they're using a glass pick or something lol

Some more specific examples of what you mean would be helpful.

Though for what it's worth there is nothing in Last Child nor any solo by Slash that I would describe as 'glassy'. Tones usually described as 'glassy' are slightly overdriven single coil tones, something Slash never uses and which to the best of my knowledge isn't used in Last Child either.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

As usual, Flibble is right. I don't consider Slash glassy though, that's more of(to my ears) Carlos Santana or, like Flibble said, slightly overdriven single-coils.

I actually have the issue of Guitar Magazine where they covered Aerosmith's pedals.

The pedal used is the the Boss OD-3. That's the only one.

yeah i've heard Santana's tone described as glassy, but i thought he used PRS guitars with humbuckers

Gibson guitar = $500 (guess)

Pack of strings = $5

He used to use Strats, among other guitars. Like an SG with P-90's.

EDIT: Also, PRS humbuckers have a fairly unique sound, anyway.

I was using my uncles Digitech Cross Roads pedal. Eric Clapton sig. There were a couple pretty sweet sounding presets that had a glassy type of sounds. Very fun pedal.

Marshall tube amps give that "glassey" tone. Its the EL34 tubes used. Fenders mostly used 6l6 and 6v6 and give a warmer tone.
