So another one of these get together with other people who are similar sort of to you...

So what suprising results have you gotten using your gear? For example, I use a Twin Reverb with a Jekyll and Hyde and get a pretty decent tone for "Given Up" by Linkin Park.

Fire away!

r "Given Up" by Linkin Park.


Linkin Park ftw! Lol Given Up is just alot of distortion, nothing special.

But, I managed to get a classic britrock distortion from my Spider iv 15 watt(sold it though )
I can get a better sound from my new amp though

I can get the perfect "American Woman" tone out of my acoustic guitar through a distortion pedal in my Raven amp.

Dude, I'm using a Twin Reverb, the amp most people say can't do metal/hard rock, hence why it's an achievement
#16
I can djent with a 30 year-old classical guitar with a tack-on 15$ pickup, statoscope-like.

Just hook it up to a Line6 DM-4, boost the gain and djent away! Just don't touch the top of the guitar, or it feedbacks like hell.

Ahhh...good point. I have never played an actual twin reverb but my mustang iii has that amp model. I know it wont be exactly(or close to) the real thing but...you are right...the amp model can't take any distortion well. 4 pedals and built in distortion...nothing makes it sound good!!!!

P.S: Thats why I never use it

The Twins do take pedals very well indeed, or at least in my experience they do. My thing was they don't do metal very well, as it's open back etc and not designed for metal at all. Plus using pedals for a deep bassy metal sound usually doesn't work

Well, I was using a built in amp model so I couldnt tell. It just sounds bad so I don't use it for distortion or cleans. The '65 Deluxe...now thats a different story

shame that your doctor declared you tone deaf . proof or it didn't happen.

I can get pretty much any classic rock/ early metal sound with just my Les Paul straight into my Marshall. No pedals at all. Takes quite a bit of tweaking obviously but I've had Zeppelin, AC/DC, it absolutely nails Guns 'N Roses as hard as you can, Sabbath, Queen, Dire Straits, Bon Jovi you name it.
#22
A Fender Frontman 15 with scooped mids= Pantera

Which is a bad thing.

I'd expect that though? The bands you named, Marshall and Gibson are pretty much what they used.

If you got the same result using a Tele and a Vox AC15, fair enough.

Me too. I managed to get a pretty nice hard rock/metal tone out of my Pod Farm (Bare in mind I don't have the Metal Shop add on or any add ons, it's all bare bones). Suck on that! (insert trollface here)

OT: I put this cheap Ibanez distortion pedal in front of one of the higher gain channels on my Vox ad15vt (BTW, the distortions are crap on this thing, so bad I'm selling it. Cleans are nice, though) and it sounded quite nice. Not sure if it's really all that taboo but two pieces of cheap gear coming as once decent tone is good enough for me.

All-plywood Epiphone flat top with bolt-on neck = remarkably good sound

Steve Vai Jemini Distortion (red channel) + Crate V50-212 (cheap attempt at JTM-45 clone) = perfect Blink-182 rhythm tone?
Gibson ES-137C
Parker P8EN
AC Custom Special P Bass

I got amazing lead tones out of a starterpack amp with no pedals. Then my friend came in and ruined it for me by absentmindedly twiddling the knobs.
Also a pretty sweet low-gain sound out of a Vox Amplug Lead.

The best tones were created by pushing an instrument or amplifier out of its comfort zone. Unfortunately that's also how you create the worst tones.
Ceci n'est pas une signature.
