on either of their last 2 albums?
(from under the cork tree, take this one to your grave)

Prepare to be bashed. I don't specifically no what distortion pedal they used. Most likely they are using their amps distortion like most bands. Try a DS-1 or something. But honestly don't go buying a pedal to try and sound like another band.

EDIT:
Looking at your gear list I don't see what you need to add anymore distortion or overdrive pedals for.

They don't use one. Its straight from their amp, probably a Marshall JCM of some sort.

OHHHHHHHHHH man LMAO now that's what i call getting pwned.

Nice work Fender, seriously.
#4
Last I checked they were using Mesa/Boogie Rectifier heads. Which really imply that they aren't using distortion pedals.

But if you don't have $1700 to spend on a head, Boss Mega Distortion's probably the closest you'll get.

one of them uses a bogner uberschall, the other one probably the same

LMAO! HGAHA that was really funny to me....even though they use Rectos live...and I have a Recto..lol oh well.

ANyways, In a studio a lot of big bands wont use just one amp...theyll use a HUGE array of amps at once. Like UnderOath used a selection of Soldanos, Marshalls, HiWatts, Mesas, different Vox amps...etc. Plus a whole wall of rackmounted stuff.
#9
well, im glad for the thread starter that he hasn't been flamed yet. He'll grow into it.

But in all seriousness, i think they either use marshalls or mesas, with sgs?
#12
come on, do i have to be the first? ok, i guess it'll have to be me. what the hell dude, if u play any kind of overdriven/distorted guitar, why are u listening to fall out boy? they ****in suck. listen to lamb of god or slayer or some band with good guitarists...furthermore, why would u want to play fall out boy? i could teach my ten year old sister how to play that ****.
#13
HaHa. I was waiting for that. Anyway, I like how in this forum, people can't just skip a Thread but instead decide to bash someone for liking a band. And you like Slayer????
Can you really bash other peoples bands? I mean. Come on now. They are ok. But not that good.
#15
dude **** up i hate people that come on here and act like they are god because there music is superior. yea i dont like fall out boy but i dont bash them. theyve had a lot of success and have a lot of fans...does it really matter? if you cant help him then dont reply. and we are all the same in this category. were all musicians and were supposed to have a common bond. wtf? so lets respect each others personal opinions.

anyways there is a "vulgur display of power" in a guitar world issue recently. it had one of the guitarist in FOB and his rig. try to find that. hope i helped.

haha yeah dude, i couldnt help myself. but ill agree with you, there are bands better than slayer...trivium and lamb of god top the list though, for metal bands of today. well, let me hold that judgement until 'the crusades' and 'sacrament' come out. but hey, can we all agree fall out boy has no ****ing talent?

Yeah, I guess you do have to be the first, since the rest of us are not as closed minded as you and would rather help the kid out than bash him because his taste in music is different than ours. Sorry that you had to take on the responsibility of being the bitch of the thread. Have a nice day, and go hang yourself.
#18
well i looked in my issue of guitar world and the one guy uses fenders with duncans right into a bogner uberschall no pedals so im guessing hes the lead guy and the singer does rythm but im not a fall out boy fan persay so idk his setup

It's wrong to compare a Pop/Punk band to a metal band as far as talent. They're different styles, they call for different styles of playing.

You can't compare apples to strawberries, two completely different things. So what, your bands solo fast and growl. Wow, you like metal. Omg, you are so badass and tough, I think you are cool!

Seriously, stfu. So what if you don't like bands that sing softer and have "pussier" lyrics. Not everyone has to like metal and hardcore. There's no reason to bash people, quit doing it. The only reason you bash "pussy" bands is to make yourself seem tough and rough, like the metal players appear to be. Grow a pair and stop being a poser.

Threadstarter: Mesa Boogie makes a tube distortion pedal that simulates a Recto I think. Check out the MB website.

That whole rant is about telling him not to bash people.

I believe one line was insulting towards him. -.-

Besides, there's always exceptions to the rules. I felt something needed to be said to him, he wasn't being very open minded, in fact, he was far from it. "If you listen to distorted guitars you have to listen to metal" was what he was saying. O.o

The reason we hate fall out boy isnt because they play **** music, it isnt because theyre gay as hell, and it isnt because they can't play their instruments worth a damn....its because they play the **** and little kids and tools listen to it on the radio and buy thier **** that they "write"

Congratulations on naming two bands that arn't metal.

FOB sucks, but they know how to write whats going to sell. Them > You.

A few members used to be in a hardcore band, and it kicked major ass.


Plus, anyone who plays a uberschall must be pretty awsome.

Gear doesnt make the player any better. I saw a band play and the guy had an Uberschall (running through a Behringer cab lmao) and he sucked horribly.
