what does it mean, and could you maybe post a video with creamy tone too, cause i don't get how something sounds with words most of the time

also, what does 'dig into those strings' mean
thanks.

so something crunchy isn't creamy ? cause i saw a tubescreamer getting described as creamy although it's pretty crunchy

so basically a les paul is always creamy ?

****, i think i still don't understand...

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

This question is both rhetorical, hypothetical and ridiculous.

Creamy is the sound you think sounds 'creamy', not someone else's definition of it. Why have your ear for tone told to you by other people?

They're your ears, so use them!

Meh, it's more opinion. If something is too crunchy, then it is not creamy IMO. There is no exact definition of creamy though.

I'd describe creamy as a smooth, full overdrive, with a little reverb, but not too wet, otherwise it will be too muddy.
Anyway, I agree with Don_Humpador. I use adjectives like "papery" to describe tone, too.
#18
So what do you recommend to do to get the creamiest sound possible? Do you take away highs and add mids and bass + neck pu?

edit oh i guess you just kinda answered that , stupid computer!

Smooth, not aggressive tone, especially when playing single notes, but crunching a little with double-stops or when played hard etc.

creamy tone - from the latin phrase "creamus tonus" meaning the tone which brings you closest to creaming your pants
