I'd suggest stacking pedals and see what sounds you can come up with. From what I've seen a lead sound. is never the sole product of one pedal. You could try a compressor in there aswell, to even out the dynamics. Even a slight delay effect would help thicken the sound.
monwobobbo im looking for a Sabbath tone
You guys talking about high gain amp or no, a good high gain amp isn’t necessarily needed in this case but it’s not a terrible idea. Gain can always be turned down.
I’d say keep it simple. Consider the new Marshall Studio Classic. It’s their newest incarnation of the JCM800 and reviews seem very positive so far. That with your cab of choice, a good boost pedal (anything tubescreamer-based), and a decent delay should get you going.
For guitars, you could do a Strat for the Yngwie stuff, though you could also do something with humbuckers. Really you’ll be fine with either as long as the guitar inspires you to play. Because you have some heavier leanings I’d probably steer you towards a good guitar with a humbucker in the bridge and that can coil split.
I mean, I have an EHX Russian Big Muff...and 2 clones of it. And have others on my GAS list. (All of them have more tonal control than the original, though.)
One part of me lies to myself, justifying my multiple redundancies by saying that I really will put together discrete pedalboards for the different genres in which I dabble.
Including actual bedalboards (probably from Chemistry Designworks) and a Carl Martin Octaswitch devoted to each, no less!
Kinda my point! In all honesty, I have more than I need. But that hasn’t really slowed me down. Hell, if I’m honest, I’ve accelerated...
The key is the mids. Scooping the mids sounds cool for metal rhythm, but kills the clarity of lead work. If you add highs to try to cut through the mix, you wind up with "thin and awful". Too much distortion also kills clarity and "purity". Yngwie has less distortion and compression going than most people think. A word I throw around is "articulate". I like low output pickups, with moderate distortion and a fairly flat EQ. Some amps just have "it". I gigged soldano's for years, and they have a great upper-mid "something"/sweetness that just works. Cranked plexi/800 is similar
I don't need multiple amps. I have 2.
I don't need a bunch of redundant pedals. I have dozens.
I don't need more than a few guitars. I have...30(?).
No offense, but that actually won’t work- the mistake people make is thinking they can use the same rig as a guy playing theaters and areanas.
A typical player will never have the chance to use the sheer volume Malmsteen used in getting his early tone.
If you can play a plexi on 10, then lower output pickups and a DOD250 could work
For regular band and club volumes, I’d go with a setup that has more gain on tap.
You just need enough gain
Early Malmsteen actually didn’t have that much gain, but his right hand was a machine
There’s plenty of amps today with gain up the Wazoo, so you have a lot of options
martmiguel repair is $25. but the only damage ive noticed is a blue wire that isnt connected to anything on the inside. im not sure if its just an extra wire or if it was disconnected from something
monwobobboI do plan to use it clean for my pedals, my previous amp didnt take them good and did not offer an effects loop, overall according to what pepole said I think I made a pretty decent buy
monwobobbo I thought maybe that's what was going on. I just took the pickguard off, wish I had taken a picture. I'm starting to think the pickups are original to it the way it's wired. if not, the person who did it was quite professional.
monwobobbo this thing is confusing the crap out of me. It's definitely had replacement parts put on. Just out of curiosity, would you happen to know why it has the pickup selector and the mini toggle?
I also have a family graveyard that dates back to the 1800's. Unfortunately, one of the graves has an ancestor of mine that fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War. Good to know I come from a family of fucking traitors.
Well how about a specific pedal that made you a noticbly better player?
I just use my phone.
monwobobbo I belive that in the ending solo he uses a tube screamer to beef up the tone otherwise he also changes his toggle from lead to Rythem a couple times maybe that’s why it sounds like an overdrive pedal?
Imonwobobbo I’ve been experimenting with my amp and after cranking the volume I find I get a much closer sound to the video without the use of any pedals, after listening closely it’s possible he’s using no pedals at all, just a cranked tube amp to get the growl would you say it’s pretty accurate to assume it’s just the use of a loud ass amp?
monwobobbo actually it does man, when you use your amps distortion and gain instead of pedals the boost does nothing because the amp compresses it to fit where its volume knob is at
monwobobbo oh I got you I’m also reading that there are 2 channels on the peavy classic lead and normal it seams the the pre gain controls how hard your pushing the amp and the post amp control works as a volume knob in this channel of that sounds correct? You may have already stated this in a different way I just wanted to see if this sounded right? So in my case to achieve the sound from the video I’m kinda chasing I would want to get that growl with the pre amp knob then control how loud I want the overall sound with the post amp knob correct?
monwobobbo i'm using my amps distortion (sorry i forgot to add that part in)
monwobobbo ok I usuall have my EQ set pretty strick on all my amps with treble at 4, bass on 7, and middle on 7 then my volume and gain is pretty fair game depending on my amps I have a master on my thrc that alows me to keep my tone when the volumes set high but I need it quieter, dose the ore gain work the same way as a master
