haha I know that's your opinion and all, but the Concorde(in my sig) is the classiest of all metal guitars and the final Randy Rhoads design is just badass while being mostly practical. Now Warlocks and shit yeah those are ugly as fuck, as are most superstrats, but try to be a little more informed though instead of making generalizations like that.

so is Miley Cyrus and Jersey Shore. Popular =/= good

TEH BR00TZZZ is not my thing at all, thus I do not like EMGs

You're being a little pretentious here. You're right popular does not equal good. But when did I say that exactly? More often than not, if things are popular there are viable reasons for that.
TEH BROOTZZZ is not my thing either. Its the tightness in the bass, the mid boost and how the clarity doesn't degrade as much as you add more distortion, as long as you don't go overboard with it.

5deckollie
02-03-2011, 10:31 AM
and sometimes the reasons things are popular are horrible. It's cool you like yr pickups broseph, I just had to disagree with your assertion that your guitar was better than the guitars that this thread is about

"Sometimes" Is the operative word in that sentence. Thats why I said "more often than not".

It wasn't a serious assertion in the first place broseph. But I guess I didn't make that clear so my fault on that. Once you get into higher end guitars, it mostly comes down to personal preference rather than "good" or "bad".


But since I don't wanna ruin this thread with typical internet bullshit, you lay down any tracks with that beast yet RUFN?

I play mostly metal, and in my experience SD's are wayyyy better especially vintage. I've played a few guitars with different emg's and they sound pretty good and while they give a good heavy tone they suck for everything else.

But I need more pedals.

its an addiction

although i can admit, even though i'm fairly new to pedals, i'm pretty content with my rig.

DS1 for light distortion, big muff for fuzz, and both of them together for all-around hardcore-playing distortion (the big muff does low ends, DS1 doing highs, works out really well), and my holy grail delivers all the reverb i need.

greg ginn (every bit of my inspiration) used no effects at all, just overdriven solid state amps. i like to take his minimalist view on guitar playing


although sometimes i wish i had a more dedicated overdrive/distortion pedal, the boss isn't all too great

reptiskate52
02-14-2011, 05:30 PM
Get an OD-3 or a DS-2 if you want to stick with Boss. The DS-2 gets a lotta slack, but it really is an all around sick pedal.

Or go all the fuck out and get out a Filmore Thunder:
http://stompthatbox.3dcartstores.com/assets/images/elite-tone-fillmore-thunder.jpg


Words can not describe that thing.


But pedals are seriously my main expense in life. Some of them I've never even recorded with, and probably never will. I have no steady musicians to play shows with, so I tend to play acoustic whenever I play out. They're just fun.

Thanks, man . i wrote it down at work so i wouldn't forget ..



im sure all the customers who walk into urban outfitters are brimming with wisdom and knowledge and cant help but rub it off on you

lulz



one silly idea ive been wanting to do for a while now (for a hardcore punk band, this'd never work in anthing that requires talented playing), is get an decent active a/b signal splitter thingy for my guitar and do this:

run one signal through one of those whammy pedals that drops it down a shitton of octaves and into a bass amp

and run the other one into my guitar amp

so i can play "both" instruments at the exact same time and only have "bass" when i hit the switch for just one signal and vice versa

maybe have a loop thingy so i can hit it for the "bass" signal and do a wicked guitar solo and also vice versa for wicked "bass" solos

of course it'd sound trashy and punx as fuck
hopefully my idea wasnt too technical for your simple minds

I mean I know people get great distorted tones from them but they just don't compare imo. One example is after Randy Rhoads died, Bernie Torme used his pedalboard, head, and cabinet for one show, but he played a Strat and it just didn't sound as good as it did with Randy's Seymour Duncans. idk I don't have nearly as much experience playing Fenders so i guess I can't really talk.


I really, really want a David Gilmour Black Strat relic though.

i used to like humbuckers on the old explorer i traded for the jazzstang
after a while i just didnt dig it anymore. too.... smooth and steril. i like the trashy sound i get outta single coils.


You'd have to pick your octave pedal wisely. Whammy's are monophonic and can have trouble tracking notes, so it would likely be making weird glitchy noises instead of sweet bass tones most of the time. And you'd have to have two loopers if you're going to be able to loop the individual parts after you've divided the signal and be able to loops guitar AND bass.

basically, complicated setup driz. do it



more like a THE ONLY PEDALS I HAVE ARE ON MY BIKE ONE LESS CAR sticker on your fixie


punx as fuck
