I'm talking like guitar/bass/etc effects.

I personally cannot stand distortion + chorus, every time I accidentally put on chorus while I have distortion or vice versa it just sounds so bad! I mean I'm sure in some context it can sound good, but I just hate it.

Now your turn!

Effects suck, aside from wah.

And harmonizers, if you consider that an effect.

Overdrive too if you want to play dumb.

I think effects allow you to find a tone you want, a sound in your head. They help shape songs, solos, riffs... The possibilities are endless.

I have always felt that shunning them all off is close-minded. That's just me.

This isn't shunning them, I love effects personally, nothing like a clean channel with some chorus, love it, or some just raw overdrive to make ya feel bad ass.

But those two together suck ass, thats what this thread is.

I think everything listed so far sounds great. Except harmonisers. So I say: harmonisers and anything.

Play your own damn harmonies, people.

.....I'm just not a fan of using the phaser.

IDK I just guessed. I have not actually tried it, it just seems like it would get out of hand.

SRV played a song with 2 wah pedals. One open and one closed .When he played live he had to use Duct Tape to keep them in sync, as he rarely sat down at a concert.

Lol nah. I like lots of effects (if used correctly). My personal favourite is probably Reverse Echo. Beautiful. But it sounds like **** with distortion, and obviously wah (how can anybody think they'd go together?).

I have a harmonizer on my ME50, and I've yet to make it sound good, its always just awful.

Only after the 90's. Tremolo, and many other effects were used tastefully back in the day.

How can you have a bad ass old school western riff going on your guitar without tremolo!

What a pro, I tell you what....

Combining a Digitech Grunge and Synth Wah pedal is pure ear rape. Never do it.

People don't use it like that anymore unfortunately.

They go way way overboard with it. Promiently in Nu-Metal

Your talkbox should be the first in your rig. No effects should go into your banshee.

That's exactly what I said? No effects go into my talkbox - my guitar goes into it, then it goes into all the rest, then the rest into the amp.

I'm one of those freaks who actually likes chorus + distortion sometimes. Only in the right circumstances though. Basically whenever I'm playing in like a Nintendo-Metal style.
#37
I heard a Mars Volta song that used what was I think ring mod well, otherwise that's objectively the worst effect, unless you want to sound like a dalek singing.

And I hate chorus, TBH. Cleans sound far better with slight overdrive or reverb, and with distortion it's just a fucking mess.

Nintendo sound is what ring mods are for!



The ringmod was around FAR before the Nintendo. I think that Steely Dan used a ring mod a couple of times.

I nominate "Nintendo-Metal" as the most retaded sub-genre of all time...OF ALL TIME!!
#39
I'd say distortion+chorus is pretty gross, but then I think of Death From Above 1979, and all is well.

Maybe different mod effects at different rates that clash horribly.
