I have been having my 7 string guitar for about 5 months and i think it time to add a pedal .

What guitar pedal should i get first to get the sound of KoRn?

plug your guitar into a wolverines ass, you'll pretty much get the same effect

on a serious note, a good distortion/metal pedal

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus-Top, SH-2 and SH-5
Ibanez GRX20
Baron Acoustic
Peavey Valveking 112
Roland Cube 15
Dunlop Crybaby From Hell
Dunlop GCB-95 Crybaby
Boss MT-2 Metal Zone
Boss PH-3 Phase Shifter

You'd need to tell us what kind of guitar and amp you have.
mmmmmmhmmm

That's exactly what I've been trying to say.

He may not have the budget for a wolverine though. He may need to settle for a raccoon or badger, depending on how much he has to spend.

Well, we need more info!

If you want a Korn tone, you'll never mimic their tone without a nice high gain amp. They get most of their tone just from their guitars and amps (Triple Rectifier, Road King, and various others). But... you can suffice enough with pretty much any distortion pedal; try out a Metal Zone (Boss). I believe Munky has one in his huge pedal board.


Sadly... yes, among many things, I am a Korn fan

That's like saying - if I asked which Epiphone John Lennon used - it's OMG it is 1964 again!

And i'm not comparing Lennon to Munky or Head, but the guy was just looking for some help. who cares?

It's hard to consistently get their sound because it's pretty different tonaly depending on what song, and especially what album.

Overall, the most important thing you'll need is LOTS of Gain, tight on the low end and with a really dry EQ setting to really create Munky's (and formerly head's) atonal sound and percussive punch..

Secondly, the most important effects you'll need are a Whammy Pedal, preferrably the original whammy/wha, and a phaser, more specifically the small stone and preferrably two of them.

Another good item to have that munk has in his board is a modified vintage tube screamer.


Also, Munky and Head had two totally different rigs when looking at effects.. Both had the Whammy and the phaser, but Munky's pedal board is HUGE. Head used to run pretty minimalistic with pedals..

DiMarzzio pickups would help as well, but not that big of a deal..

Get a Whammy if you're looking for a quick purchase to get something close....

it's Heavily used in a LOT of their songs.

Their wall of sound effect in songs like Here to stay, Twisted Transistor, and Somebody Someone is created by the use the Octave harmonize function that's impossible to recreate with just a guitar and an amp.....

Just an estimate, but I'd say that around 50% of their songs use the whammy pedal to some degree or another...

i like heavy more but its all prefrence.
IMO:
Heavy more control
Lite: less resistnece to the strings(easier to go faster)
Med:some where in between(hence med)

Hey man, this post is probably a bit late... But DUDE, I found a site that shows you exactly what equipment Munky and head use, even Fieldy, so here it is mate, hopefully you can make some sense of it: http://www.guitargeek.com/search?qt=b&q=Korn&x=0&y=0

Good luck my man!

I'm pretty sure Munky uses/used a MXR Blue Box and a Dunlop Univibe at some point. but i also read somewhere that he put a speaker into a drawer and filled it with marbles. so, i'm not sure if there's a pedal that can replicate that.
