overdrive, and wah i think. he only puts the wah on sometime though, you should be able to hear it. he might also use some fuzz, but i'm pretty sure he only uses wah and overdrive.

First I suggest you learn to play like him. Learn to feel the changing time signatures. That's my best suggestion.

Hope that helps!

Buy his equipment? But seriously, I would actually like to know too. I know he has Mesa Boogie Cabs and uses a GK 2001RB Amp. He uses Wal Basses and ALOT of effects.

you need a GK, is tone is very hi-fi and thats because of the GK's and Mesa cabs he uses. He also uses older mesa cabs because they have better internal isolation, you could try to use a Stingray as Justin did use one on the first record he recorded on after Paul D'Amour left. Also you are going to want a Tech 21 Sansamp for Distortion and a Digitech Whammy.

i agree with what's mentioned above, but don't forget to play with a pick, I think it's what really adds to the grittiness of the tone.

I do play with a pick but I can't get that sound. I would love to have an EBMM Bongo but I'm Left-Handed.

I'm sure they make a left hand bongo!
Yeah, now you're gonna die wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?

Help me to live.


I make custom guitar wiring harnesses and I'm pretty damn good at it!

I checked the EBMM website and they don't.Didn't he use a Stingray though?

yup but only on the first record, he changed to wall for a more agressive tone hard to believe since the Stingray is pretty aggresive.

Bongos get pretty close to the Wal tone, IMO. And EBMM makes left handed instruments, just order one.
haha

Justin also uses chorus and delay pedals.


Well, to get his tone in every situation, you should have all this:




Godspeed.

He does have a lot of pedals. RIght now all I have is a Russian Big Muff



Yeah same, and Justin doesn't even use one. So we both actually have to make it a life goal to get all of those effects on the pedalboard.
