Now, Im not trying to exactly mimic the top hat wearing god but if anyone could help me out with the following it would be great:

Im using an Epi g-400 SG through a Classic cry-baby>Boss DS-1>Korg ax30g.

Im thinking of investing in a new pedal to help me get a Velvet Revolver slash sound.

Ive been looking through tons of overdrive pedals but im limited in cash so i chose the following.

Behringer OD-100 - http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=68177

Behringer TO-100 Tube Overdrive - http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=68176

DanElectro Daddy-0 - http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=9169

DANELECTRO FAB OVERDRIVE - http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=68068


If anyone has any of these pedals or knows of another pedal i could ge that would help me get the Overdriven but clear VR Slash tone then it would be appreciated.

Peace out.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.

You could get the same amp setup as him. That contributes to 95% of his sound. (yes I got that from a thread in the gear section.)

try using a marshall amp with an epiphone or gibson les paul and you will hear the difference


not if that marshall amp happened to be a mg amp

Sorry, I have a compulsion to make awful jokes all the time. I should probably get counselling

none of those pedals will sound like slash at all.
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

1. install seymour duncan alnico II pro humbuckers----those are the same ones that mr. saul hudson uses (and they sound great, i;ve got them in my les paul)
2. use tube distortion---but don't turn the gain up too much, just get your sound to a classic rock crunch, and then push it just a little more
3. get your amp LOUD---that's where alot of his sustain comes from
4. use a guitar with a thick body---preferably a les paul, but an sg style is the next best thing
5. ONCE AGAIN, DONT USE A HIGH DISTORTION PEDAL---BUT AVOID AN OVERDRIVE PEDAL UNLESS YOU OWN A TUBE AMP
6. IF you own a tube amp---replace the power tubes with either EL34s or EL84s

---and if you wanna really feel what it is like to play like him.

1. get your action low
2. tune half a step down
3. use 11 guage strings (he used .10 while he was in GNR, but now he uses 11s)
4. wear your guitar low as hell
5. smoke while playing

The first step would be NOT to buy any Behringer or Danelectro effects, as most sound like ass.
