    Apologies in advance if this is a stupid question...

    I occasionally hear an effect I like where clear plucked guitar strings sound like bells ringing. It's not amp chime, though. I've heard this on Mazzy Star albums (a personal favorite) and on a track earlier today. What is this effect and how can I get it? :)

    P.S I thought the other track was Sonic Youth, but I was actually off a track on the attribution and it's something else.

    Could be a harmonic or maybe a ring modulator or flanger on certain settings.

    A clip would help, but you can get a pretty cool bell sound with a ring modulator. Good luck.

    I'm pretty sure it's the sort of thing in an Eventide Eclipse, but that's a little rich for my blood. Not that I don't want one.
