Advise please all you GS fans out there.
No one here uses a Greer Ghetto Stomp with a Les Paul? All the video demos are with Teles.
I deme'd one with P-90s while on tour in GA. It was WAY too dark for me. It does have the sag but it just sounded like a super low gain fuzz to me. I could see why people with low gain single coils would like it.
I have to seriously cut the bass on the amp and the bass contour (reverend) for the ghetto to not have a crazy bottom. This is through P-90's and 'buckers.
With my (don't laugh..it's actually not that bad...) HM Strat Beater, it's killer. I love the voicing of the pedal, but it seems to be designed for what imguitardan said, low gain s-coils.
Thanks for the replies, guys. I'm mostly a strat guy anyway,but I love my '59 replica Paul too.
The ghetto stomp has some serious low end but, works well with a strat.
haven't tried it with my les paul bc i just got a stevens slant (strat) and the paul is totally ignored. i'll try to hook it up and report back. but yea lots of low end but i have a somewhat bright amp so i actually love it for that fact.
It's great with a Les Paul! The Ghetto has lots of ass but there's also enough sparkle to get the notes jumping. It's the jump blues pedal to own.
I have one and play it with all kinds of guitars. If you are going to use a les paul with it you will need a brighter amp. When I run it with my Fender Deluxe, I turn down the bass and up the trebles and it sound really good with a Les Paul.
I play thru a silverface princeton reverb and a bogner alchemist, so I should be fine with this pedal.
I play mine with a Les Paul quite often...plenty bright, even with dark amps...just ride the tone control higher. Big Mike just posted a vid of one with a Les Paul in one of the Greer demo threads. That should answer your questions.
Found one on you tube...
I just got a Toucan Sam Ghetto Stomp yesterday and it's so farty, ratty and raw-- I love it. I played it with a tele with a PAF humbucker in the bridge and it sounds really good. I'm anxious to hear what it sounds like with a P90 in the bridge of this guitar-- should have tons of character!
Mine arrived yesterday and now that i've spent some time with it I have to say I really dig it. It definately cops the old valco and tweed ratty blues tone to a tee. It works with my les paul with the amps set up a little brighter than usual.It kills with my strats,touch sensitive and good clean up. Low gain settings sound full and authentic as well. Cool pedal!Thanks again to Big Mike and Nick Greer and everyone else for their help.
