Whats up guys. Im looking to get a proper amp and a few pedals and Im looking for an old psychedelic sound. Think Jefferson Airplane, Blue Cheer, SRC, Rolling Stones when they play songs like "paint it black", etc.. Im not much into the happy-poppy psychedelic stuff so exclude that if it matters. Im not looking at a price limit so do your worst. Thanks!

Danelectro Reverse Delay ftw! Such a great effect, it makes you sound like yu are playing backwards, kinda like the effect on "Are you Experienced". Talk about trippy!

EDIT: also Hiwatt amps with the oscelating speaker are just amazing for this style of music.
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

Fuzz...It's wonderful and horrible and beautiful and repulsive and so many things all at once.

Except digital delay, Phase 90s and Muffs weren't around in psychedelic music's heyday.


I'd say an MXR Carbon Copy, Analogman Peppermint Fuzz and some sort of a Univibe clone (plenty of options, a Fulltone Deja Vibe is what I use).

If you want Jefferson Airplane, the rythm player, Paul Kantner used a Rickenbacker 360, and a Maestro Echoplex through a '65 Deluxe Reverb. The lead player Jorma Kaukonen used a Gibson ES-335 fitted with a Bigsby, through a UniVibe then through an Echoplex through a '57 Deluxe.

These are their live rigs. Effects such as phaser/flanger were added in the studio via tape delays, which were the only way to get chorus or flanger back then.


I am considered the Resident on all things JA, so if you disagree with the above, be prepared to back your claims.

Sorry to hijack, but what songs are good examples of Jorma using a Echoplex or Univibe? I love JA, too. I have all their albums except "Bless it's Pointed Little Head"
