In light of the frequent posts about multi FX, how to turn knobs, "can't get this, that and the other sound to play this song" etc...I just thought I'd drop in this little snippiet from the Dave Murray article on the front page

Quote by Mr Dave Murray of the Iron Maidens
What is your current live set-up when it comes to guitars, amps and any effects?

I use mainly Fender Strats, some new 100 watt Marshall heads, a Wah Wah pedal and a Marshall JFX-1 effects rack. So I basically have a pedal board that gives me the ability to dial up any sound I want. With Maiden because there are a lot of rhythm parts, especially on the heavy rhythm side of things, I can just kick on a button and have a solo sound or a have a clean sound or whatever. I basically though try and keep four or five sounds preset onstage and just use them solely


Just something to keep in mind

i actually get my best tones when my amp is off.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I would generally have a preferred clean tone, crunchy tone and higher gain tone
then alter it if it just doesn't sound right for what I'm playing

yep, to be serious for a second, me too. I have clean, crunch (e.g. classic rock/heavier blues), 80's crunch (thrash/hair metal/hard rock), and t3h br00talz.

And then a solo setting with more mids.

I've got one sound: amp on 8, no pedals, control everything on the guitar. It gets me all the different sounds I need.

When I have to keep the volume down, I use an OD pedal instead. I do obviously have more sounds, but I don't use them much.

I do the same thing!

I get all the different sounds just controlling my guitar, with no pedals, or changing settings.

I pretty much have the same as Dave , clean, overdriven rhythm, distorted rhythm and lead. Anything inbetween just comes from changing pickups or fiddling round with the guitar knobs...people don't realise how much variation you get in your sound that way, they just want to step on a pedal for everything.

I have a "clean" sound that comes from my dirty channel, with gain on 3-4 (clean) but the poweramp on 5, giving me slight distortion when I dig in and clean when I play soft. Then I get crunch from my OCD.

I get pretty complex, I think, even with such a simple setup.
SG > Wah > Fuzz > Amp
I'd like to think it's a good example of the variations you can get with using your guitar's pickup combos, and your V/T knobs.

Soft warm lead setting, where I roll down my volume a little bit, and put my neck pickup in parallel wiring, clean channel on amp.
Smooth "woman tone" lead setting, neck pickup in series, tone knob all the way down, clean channel.
Bright soft lead, roll down the bridge pickup a little, put it in parallel wiring, clean channel.
Bright riffs, bridge pickup in parallel, fuzz on, clean channel.
Heavy rhythm, bridge pickup in series, dirty channel + onboard amp bass boost.
Honky riffage, bridge pickup in series, volume rolled down a bit, wah cocked just above toe down, fuzz on, clean channel.

That's all I use, that I use often at least, I think. I should probably make use of my middle position on my SG...

meh, whatever works for you. thats what makes guitar so interesting and personal. while another may be content with a strat through a twin, another guitarist gets his sound from a refrigerator rack and 2 stacks.
though i still believe that you should be able to write interesting music on just an acoustic and/or keyboard.
gear and effects are no substitute for talent.

Depends really, i use 9 midi changeable presets...quite frequently with the music i play, just because i need a wide pallet of sounds really.

I'm planning on a number of different tones - I'm building a Silicon and Germanium Fuzz Face, a high output Clean boost and a Tubescreamer, as well as getting a V847 in - I'll use one fuzz (likely Germanium) for chunky rhythm stuff, Tubescreamer for overdrive tones, Clean Booster for lead boosts and some natural overdriven work. I like to have a lot of variety in my OD. I might get a Delay too, amazing tone-thickening piece of gear.
