erm anyone got any good suggestions on amp levels for a SRV type sound? I have a Tube screamer and a Peavey classic 50. Not really expecting a perfect match but just generral suggestions on where to hit the mid and treble and so forth.

Thanx for you're help

pwned lol.

Honestly, I don't think anyone can replicate his tone. I swear his tone is the most sought out but I think it's the way he plays that makes his tone sound as it does. Those heavy strings, god. No one can play like that.

i agree whole-heartedly, im not trying to copy his sound in a massive way i just wana basis to create my own blues tone from that has a similar edge to it, so any information on stuff liek whether he pushed up the mids or if it was all bass or whatever, its kidna hard to tell from his tracks. Anyway, just any kind of general direction would help

Yeah, you need a overdrive pedal, the Ibanez green ones (Tubescreamers) are the best --- they're what he used. TUMFP's settings seems about right...

Then, strap on 13-60s, tune half a step down, and play your ass off.

The main thing to do is crank the mids and play on the neck pickup (most of the time). He used so many amps, its hard to recreate his tone with just one.

He also used very thick strings. (i believe redwing suck pointed those out)

^^^It's hard to explain what they do, exactly (at least for me). It's a tonal quality like highs or lows. Once you mess around with your tone enough, you'll be able to hear the mids and what they sound like. One big effect they have, though, is they really let your music cut through a mix. High mids make the guitar more noticeable, i guess.

No, not louder, it just cuts through a big mix better. I'm terrible at explaining things like this, lol.

^It adds some "presence"... There's a "presence" knob on many fender amps, but cranking the mids does things it can't.

pretend a song is butter and the guitar is a knife, w/out mid it is but a butter knife...with mids were takin jagged steak knife straight through the butter. SLICED!!!

Wouldnt SRV not have cranked Mids, because of the high Mid output on his strat?

I mean his pickups are wounded hotter, the pick-ups are the one that gave him more mid output.

i thought only Clapton used that Mid-Boost in his circuits?


Buddy Guy has it too ... originally the Clapton Strat was almost identical to the Buddy Guy Strat

The pickups certainly add to the mid-drenched sound. I don't guess anyone really knows exactly how he set his mids on his amp, but the best way i've found to replicate his sound is to crank the mids on my amp.

Yea I know one person that knew his settings Cesar Chavez his tech guy. He posted something on his site about SRV's settings on his amp and tube screamer. Heres the tube Screamer pedal Level on whatever, Tone on 3 O' Clock, Drive on 12 O' Clock.

I believe his low e string was a bass D string if I remember correctly. I know it is some bass string.

Id suggest raising your action to the highest you can and relearning the guitar- I think SRV's high action played a part in his sound. Mind your fingers tho, bends are much more painful...

didn't he use the position that combines the neck and middle pickup on his strat?

Try getting a set of texas special pickups the setting the 5-way switch to the middle
My signature is a metallic red stratocaster named "Ruby"
with a Randall RX series amp with a Dunlop Crybaby.
#33
so far all i can do for his kind of tone is to do the neck pickup, turn my distortion to the lowest(or use overdrive on my amp), put on the thickest strings my store had, turned my highs up and lows down, and turned the tone all the way up on my pedal. its actually pretty close. im sure it would be a lot closer if i had the tube screamer but i dont have the money yet. the strings really made a difference though. my low E string is 56 and my high E is 12. sounds really good.
#34
If any of you play bass and guitar, ive read that putting your guitar into a bass amp can make it sound a bit closer to SRV's.
#35
The Lindy Fralins Blues Specials are more suited for the SRV tone. But are very expensive.
