What would you guess is the pedal used for the distorted tone throughout the song? It sounds very old school and different from the other distorted parts on the album. Btw, Keeley DS-1 was used for live perfomances of the song (together with Boss RV-5 in Hall mode for the fast-strumming parts...
Perfect! Later, I've come to conclusion that it is probably the Wampler Velvet fuzz so thank you very much for confirmation! The blue pedal is Selah Quartz (v2) which I believe is used in conjunction with the Cusack Tap Tremolo. There is also Shure GLXD16 right of the Z-Vex Box of Rock.
I haven't been able to find much info about their gear but there's a lot of pics from their shows and if anyone is interested, this is what they have been using live recently:
Mr.E (Mark Oliver Everett)
Guitar: Danelectro Pro
Amp: Mesa Lone Star
Pedal(s): Tech 21 Sansamp and Lone Star...
I got what you mean but this is more of a job and originality is not always welcome and not in this case - the fun for me is (at least) nailing the sounds if I like them and I like these.
I have other projects for fun where I have more space for doing things my way...
my tribute band is going to cover two Semisonic songs - I have problems with nailing these effects:
1. Fuzzy/synth lead tone that starts at 0:16 (maybe it's not even a guitar)
2. Sort of auto-wah sound that starts at 0:59 and goes throughout the song - I've tried regular wah pedal with...
it sounds more like a chorus (or leslie) than a trem to me and then there is some reverb and maybe delay... i thought there's a different setup for verse and chorus but i like the theory about the eq and that might be the main difference since the verse sounds muddled like making more space for...
Jesse (Brand New) 2017
Can anyone make out what pedals are on the board?
I can see:
bottom: EHX Big Muff - ??? - ???
middle: ??? - Empress Reverb
top: Chase Bliss??? - Boss Tuner - OBNE Procession Reverb
Jesus and Mary Chain
LEFT William Reid (lead) - two Orange Rockerverbs RIGHT Scott von Ryper (rhythm) - two Fender Twin Reverbs
Scott's drive pedals in detail - he stacks them a lot, BD-2 was barely used, the non-boss pedal is VintageFX...

Sean Cimino - lead guitar...
I love Peter's tone here:
There's Sheryl percussive Tele and then there's Peter's overdriven LP Jr. with a hint of fuzziness you can hear during leads. Do you think it's just a cranked amp? (btw it's from his pre-65Amps era) I'd like to get that tone- what would you guys use?
Thanks a lot. I've always considered VB-2 kind of neutral sounding (just from the clips, I've never had one), so if it can do that- great but it'll be tough to get one. I've been thinking about Strymon Mobius lately- do you think that the chorus in vibrato mode would get me into that area? If...
please check this tune:
I'm looking for that pulsating sound that goes during the whole song. My trem pedal can't do that. It sounds a bit like leslie to me but very filtered. I love that deep warm tone. What do you think would help me nail that sound?
Jeff Schroeder of the Smashing Pumpkins (dec 2014)
very TGP board
don't you know guys what are the pedals on the right side? (the black and yellow one and the one without knobs)
the roses pedal is Reuss Evil Twin (MXR Blue box and Dist+ clone), there are also three Moollon pedals (Aquarius...
thank you, i've just checked some Rosie demos and I really like it (I've got a Solid Gold Superdrive which I love)... however, i'm not sure if it's capable of the extreme sound as in Skyscraper solo- it's also quite raspy but not much hairy and I don't really hear much of that synthiness (there...
I love fuzz tone on the Boo Radleys' song "Skyscraper" (starts at 3:03)
What fuzz pedal would get me that filthy and synthy sound of that solo? I know that Fuzz Factory I used to have would get me very close to that but it was kinda too...
you're right, the upper knobs are smaller as on Pharaoh... that's cool that Billy owns one, they played some Siamese Dream/Pisces Iscariot songs(Quiet, Plume, Starla...) back then so he probably used the Pharaoh for that
btw, Pharaoh and Skreddy... such a TGP board
