I have a guitar technique question, i guess. (not sure this is in the right forum)

at 1:38 in this video, Brian May makes some kind gun-reloading-like sound with his guitar. Now how in the name of delicious sausages does he do that? Does anyone know?

Maybe he means the noise at the start?

Or any kind of amp with a footswitch.

Or, i can produce that sound by tapping on the area right around my pickups.

no not really, i only had this issue with mesa. all my other amps don't have this issue, one of mesa's flaws is that their amp built up a static discharge when turned on. therefore it gives off a loud explosive pop when switching the channel.

I OWN a Mesa for one, for two, that popping noise is barely noticable when i switch channels. I can hear it quite loudly when i switch it from standby to on, or if i dont warm up my amp properly.

I haven't watched the video, but probably some sort of effect pedal that he modulates and probably does something ambiguous on guitar (i.e. tap pick-ups, toggle back and forth pickup selector, vibrato).
my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps
