I have a question about Boulevard of broken dreams and those 4 intro super power chords. What effects are in use to get that sound? I would think reverb and distortion? Can someone help me here? Also a reccomendation of literally the cheapest pedals for this job would be wonderful. Thanks!
Tremolo and overdrive can help. Especially the tremolo.
pretty low Price overdrives should be either the soulfood pedal or the screamin' blues ( especially the second one is only about 35 euro and sounds not worse than the Boss bd2, imo i.e. )
