Well, i've been looking for this tone a long time ago, and i wanted to ask you all, what should i have to use or wheatever to get this kind of tone. Its like an Overdrive / Distortion that sounds so gooood with solos.

I dont know how to describe this tone, so here are some videos for reference.

The 1st song where i found this awesome tone , was from Tony Macalpine's "Violin Song"
Here it is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJv191qND2U

This guy gets it pretty good too

On this song by Seraphim too

Well, those are some reference videos for the kind of tone i want, that sound not so distorted, yet not clean, I dont know how to call it.

So what pedal , amp, pickup, guitar, amp settings or wheatever it is you guys can recommend me? Thanks in advance.

btw, sorry for my bad english. (currently learning it)

A cranked hi-gain tube amp plus some sort of PAF humbucker in the neck slot will do the trick.

Check out the Blackstar distortion pedal, it may be close to what you are looking for, it is also a valve pedal, great tone

it's just a pretty processed tone with reverb and delay through a heavily saturated tube amp

none of those clips sound remotely like a PAF humbucker at all. It's really more of your modern, dimarzio pickup kind of sound.

Delay + Reverb + Hi Gain Tube Amp + Fat Medium High Output Neck Pup = Dat Tonez

Putting a nice OD in front might help as well. Something like a Fulltone OCD, Tubescreamer, or BB Preamp would add a little saturation and "juice" to the tone.

It's a very modern kind of tone. You'll need a fairly high gain tube amp that is modern voiced. You'll need to use your neck pickup and roll off the treble slightly.

I think these are the most important elements of that tone.

Thanks everyone, so in conclusion, is a thing of hot pickups and hi-gain tube amp with reverb. But just a question lets say i have the tube amp. Should i use the amp distortion or use the amp clean channel with pedals?

^ amp distortion, maybe with a slight boost from an overdrive pedal or similar.

yup. high gain tube amp, increase the mids, roll off the treble slightly. maybe use a boost if the amp doesn't have enough gain on its own. bridge humbucker.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
