    How to "Fake" a Gibson Firebird Tone?

    I've recently fallen in love with the unique nature of the fantastic Gibson Firebird. I am digging the sound. Crunchy, open, jangly. That whole "between a Tele and Les Paul thing is working for me. Seems like a really awesome answer for a double-hum style (yes, I know, they aren't really...

    Diezel Herbert vs. Weehbo Bastard vs. Friedman OD BE Deluxe

    Looking at all three of these pedals, trying to deduce which one I want. I play through a Marshall JCM800 with KT88's. I'm looking for a pedal for my metal rhythm and lead tones, but versatility is also important. I have my regular light overdrive figured out, so I'm looking for one to produce...

    Modding a strat? New amp?

    Hello, fellow guitarists! I mainly play metal (Metallica style), but also compose clean stuff with delay. Searching for my tone, i want to make some changes. I have a clean amp and four pedals (a Big Muff, a boss DD200, a dual drive and a wah). I'm very happy with my clean tone, but can't...

    "From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea" Porl Thompson Lead Tone

    I've been obsessed by this song since the first time i heard it. I LOVE it and it's probably in my top 4 favourite song ever. But, anyway.... I love Porl/Pearl Thompson as a guitarist and i love how he performed this song live. I've been tone chasing to get his sound forever. I know he used...

    Pickups for Ichika Nito/clean lofi tone?

    Hey everyone, I’m looking for a set of pickups for my strat to get the sparkly clean tone that Ichika Nito gets. I’m aware a compressor is a large factor in the tone, not to mention hands, but mine simply aren’t cutting it. I have very hot pickups (Fender deluxe drives) which work great for an...

    Germino lead 55

    Ideally I’d get a headroom 100 brand new but my budget is 2k. They never show up in the used market. However I see lead 55s all the time for 1600-1800$ used. I know they have similar circuits and characteristics but still a bit different sounding. I play a lot of Hendrix RHCP and zeppelin. I’m...

    That Hetfield crunch

    Hey everyone, This was fun! So I made an attempt at recreating the Metallica James Hetfield rhythm crunch tone. Not a tone based on a specific album but perhaps a nice blend of the old and new stuff. I wanted the rig to be simple, so no amp blending etc. and I think I came pretty close! I used...

    Pedals versus modeler?

    I just tried something different last night. I usually play HX Stomp with headphones and pedals with amps. So I laid out pedals on my home studio desk in this order: 1. Petty John Electronics - LIFT (I left it "off" so it's just a buffer that puts a little extra polish on my raw guitar...

    Helix/stomp users, need advice, chasing The Strokes tone

    I have a Helix, and I've been trying to capture this tone(Verses&Chorus) I believe the guitarist uses a Mel9. I was really hoping/expecting that at the price the helix, the synths would be up to par, and they have improved them over the years but I'm wondering if I should just downsize to a HX...

    Strat neck pickup to tele neck pickup to...

    Hey! I've owned a Fender Stratocaster Plus (the one with Gold Lace Sensor pickups) since the 1990s and nothing has been able to dislodge it as my favourite until.... During lockdown I bought a Squier Affinity Telecaster to start playing with open tunings and explore a bit of guitar maintenance...

    Help finding the right guitar

    Hi, new guy here. I like many genres and prefer to play very clean with a very open sounding lead tone. Sort of like a jazz or Jazz rock style from the late 70s. A lot of my guitar heroes come from that era. I can't afford something like a Gibson Es-335 at the moment but I want something similar...

    Jimmy Page TSRTS tone quest

    I'm looking for that live Page tone from his show at MSG 1973. I really don't like his other live tones after 73 they sound to thin to me and less driven. His rig for that show was Les paul-> wah-> echoplex->marshall superlead modded with kt88 power tubes. I currently play a les paul through a...

    Thoughts on Getting This Incredible Fuzz Tone

    I've recently become very interested in a tune that features, what sounds like, a guitar tone with an incredible amount of clear fuzz. Being a guitarist for quite a while posessing a modest rig, with the original intention being to emulate David Gilmour's tones, I came across the aforementioned...

    PRS 35th Anniversary SE Custom 24

    Hi everyone, I bought a PRS 35th Anniversary SE Custom 24 and it's a really nice guitar. I really like the neck, weight and how it feels overall. I do like the coil-split functionality, but for some reason I don't like the humbucker sounds. This is specially evident with the neck pickup, it...
