well I've been trying to get a good styx live tone for a while and I just can't pin point it.


It's just so harmonically rich I don't know how he gets those notes to feedback everytime like that I know they use old plexi's and jumper the channels but that about it. I can't tell how much of it is volume and how much is actaully preamp gain either

hers a starting point or two.

http://ie.youtube.com/watch?v=QbXJzyWN7vs I really like JYs tone through out here

http://ie.youtube.com/watch?v=6JQV_0L2_XI&feature=related I love JY's lead tone on this. the little fills during the "verses"

http://ie.youtube.com/watch?v=QCkjFV5SGNs&feature=related I like Tommys tone alot on this solo. the chunky palm muted think is sweet


I'm mostly talking about JY though


I really like this tone also

It's not styx though.

wow id like to know also-i would think its more so the preamp gain than the volume, but then again they are using jumped plexis which produce more volume than your typical tube amps, so its kind of a toss up.

yeah I'm not sure cause AC/Dc gets most of their gain from volume. so I"ll wait

yea true, but in my opinion the tone that tommy shaw is getting is much more full then some of the tones angus gets, and when they were playing with the orchestra it didnt seem like their amps were overpowering with their volume levels

I agree thats what I thought

but don't you need a fair amount of volume to get harmonic feed back like that all the time with out getting pretty close to your amp.

I like JYs tone a bit more It's got a bit more punch and clarity then Tommy's Imo
