Hey guys I have a question. Do you guys know of any products that will help me simulate the effects of a 12 string guitar? I mean for my electric guitar (my acoustic isn't acoustic-electric). Maybe a chorus pedal or something like that? I've heard about the Jellifish Chorus Pick, but the reviews on GC say that it isn't too good. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I have a Boss GT6...... can simulate AAAAAANYTHING with that!
How would you like to be an egg? You only get laid once. It takes 4 minutes to get hard, 2 minutes to get soft. You share your box with 9 other guys. But worst of all: the only chick that ever sat on your face was your mother. So cheer up...

Adry007, do you mean the GE-7 "Equalizer" pedal?


No, I mean the Boss GT-6 guitar effect processor.....the newest model is now the Boss GT-8

Also, I would appreciate if anybody could tell me their experience with the Jellifish, and if it really gives you that 12-string sound.

Maybe a Boss Octave Pedal. I dunno, but it seems right to me.

The Boss Super Shifter. Check out the Boss pedal demo, it has a 12-string sound clip.

I have never heard of the Super Shifter, so I'll definetly look into it. But Mr. Chainsaw, I would have to agree with an octave pedal, although, wouldn't that make my whole guitar sound an octave higher/lower and not make it sound like six are regular and six are high?

I thought there would be a 12 string option on it, but if the Boss Super Shifter has it, then it must not be on the Octave pedal, so yea.

Im just used to my POG I guess, because I can still keep my original sound in the mix with it, I guess thats unlike other octave pedals.

Good luck finding one.

The thing with using an octave pedal is that is also gives you octave strings on the top B and E strings, which a 12 string doesn't have. On a twelve string these two strings are string in unison pairs, where both strings on each are the same. Apart from that though, they seem the best bet to me.

Doesn't your AD15VT have a chorus built in?
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

Yeah, my AD15VT does have a chorus in it, but the chorus is mixed in with effects and is kinda hard to control. Ah well, I'm sure I'll find something. Thanks for all your help.

EDIT: Hey, you guys were right! The Super Shifter does do 12-string emulation. Thanks so much. That pedal is definetly the next one on my list.

I would just suggest an octave pedal, simple enough. But if you played full chords distorted it would sound horrible with the octave up B and E strings. What would you be using it for?

I'd mainly be using it for classic rock, like The Beatles. They had a lot of songs that used 12 strings, especially around '65, with the Help! album.
