    On the song "Fox on the Run" by sweet, the very intro uses a echoing synth that sounds like a ray gun or something. what gear are they using and for future reference what is the sound called. Instead of me searching youtube for alien ray gun synth.

    I am playing a show and would like that noise to be during our intro.

    HELP!!

    Do I need to get a synth keyboard or is there a way to do this sound from my guitar with some pedals?

    Sounds like you may be able to accomplish that effect with something like the Pigtronix Mothership and a choppy tremolo. Or maybe the Whammy pedal and trem. It's never gonna be exact without a good analog synth though, and lots of talent.
