Hey i was just wondering if anyone could tell me the effects used for the solo in skin o m,y teeth. Im playing it but it just doesnt have the same punch the original seems to have. It feels as if im missing an effect or somthing. Could be the 1000 pounds of equipment i dont have xD but you never know!. Ive seen some people get the exact sound as it on youtube. was looking for that.

The solo starts at 1:35

Thanks alot.

You could try toying around with some EQ... but, the probable answer is that the solo you're hearing is a product of studio recording. It might be layered, it's brought front in the mix, the track is EQ'd and maybe compressed with some very professional tools. It's hard to create a sound like that at home, but I'd say that a high-quality tube amp wouldn't hurt either.

Its impossible to make something sound exactly the way it does on the recording also everyone's style can make them sound different anyway. So I would try and do it your own way.
GENERATION 10: The first time you see this, copy it into your sig on any forum and add 1 to the generation. Social experiment.

*checks your sig*

I see your problem. I can get a similar sound with my amp. Tubes + lots of mids/highs = win Megadeth tone.

This is from the remastered album, so there is even more production done to alter the tone. Not only is there compression and tons of EQ, but a lot of the tone is really from how you play it. Study how Marty plays this solo. He uses a Jackson Kelly with a Seymour Duncan JBJ in the bridge. He also probably used a Crate Blue Voodoo and Vintage 30s in the studio with an SM57.

On another note, Broderick doing the solo (the later one) in this song on the "Blood in the Water" video kicks major, major ass. I can watch that all day.

Even if you studied how he played it, you will never get Marty's sound due to his weird picking technique.

What I meant was that if you look at a video of him, you'll see his technique. I copy his picking style sometimes and I can get it to sound similar to him, well, more so than a normal picking technique. Basically, he picks really close to the neck which warms up the sound of the bridge pickup a little, also, he does a lot of economy picking, which I do naturally (not as good as him though).
