it cuts back the treble, so you'll get less distortion as well

i like heavy metal.. does anyone ever roll the tone back playing rythm? does anyone roll it back to 0? when should i use it lol?
#9
the tone knob only cuts treble frequencies, leaving mids and bass. the result is a more mellower sound. if its on 10 then it is not cutting anything, if it is on zero then it is cutting all. i think its more of a personal preference what number to keep it on though.

I roll it back to zero to get a really throaty sound on my solos, will also roll it back if I want to play open chords with a lot of drive, and get a really smooth sound, but as far as rhythm in metal goes, I almost always use the bridge pickup with the tone knob on ten. I ususally keep the tone control for my neck pickup set to six, but will fiddle with it as I see fit during a song.

Makes you sound like Carlos Santana



I think Carlos' tone is really derived mostly from his technique.

And his multi thousand dollar rig, not his tone knob

Some people eh?

it was a joke btw. Santana's tone mostly comes from his guitar, especially the neck which is 1 piece of whatever wood it is lol.

It cuts the treble frequencies. If you turn it down with a clean signal, you get a nice jazzy tone. Turn it down with an overdriven amp and you get that Clapton "woman" tone (best with humbuckers).

Well, my tone knob acts like a second volume.

...yeah, I suck at wiring....

It's cool, cause if you turn down the tone knob on a strat, and add a Tubescreamer to it, it sounds like a humbucker equiped guitar almost.
