Hey guys, could you listen to this song at 0:17-0:30 and tell me what effects the guitar player is using to get that sound? I've been told it's a real expensive tube amp, but I find it hard to believe that there's no other way. Could a tube amp emulator work? Thanks guys!

EDIT: Like this ?

That could be any distortion. He/she is just palm muting.

No effect.

It's just palm muted power chords. If you have any electric guitar with an amp you can do it. It's not even that advanced of a technique.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

just palm muting.

any amp with halfway decent distortion should be able to approximate that sound with no trouble at all

Wow, thanks. Don't know what the guy was thinking when he recommended the tube amp. I'll learn palm muting! Thanks!

You should still get a tube amp though, because theyre sweet.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do
