    Yay first post.
    I've been checking out this band called 30 seconds to mars and though I don't really like 'em there was one guitartone during the performance that I liked a lot.

    Check out this video here at 7:40:

    This sort of monophonic tone is what I'm talking about. When he plays the octave notes all good, some upper octave coming through it seems. But when he plays the two dissonant notes it kinda collapses into just one note. I can't do this with amp distortion, it just sounds horrible. I checked out the guys pedalboard:


    BOSS BF-3 FLANGER
    BOSS DC-2 DIMENSION C
    BOSS DD-20 GIGA DELAY
    BOSS PH-3 PHASE SHIFTER
    BOSS PS-5 SUPER SHIFTER
    BOSS RC-20 LOOP STATION
    BOSS SL-20 SLICER
    BOSS TU-2 CHROMATIC TUNER
    DEVI EVER SODAMEISER FUZZ
    DIGITECH WHAMMY IV
    ELECTRO-HARMONIX TUBE ZIPPER
    ERNIE BALL 6180 VP JR PASSIVE VOLUME PEDAL
    KEELEY COMPRESSOR TWO KNOB
    LEHLE P-SPLIT
    MXR CLASSIC 108 FUZZ


    Nothing to special here. I tried the Whammy set to harmony oct up/down mode with fuzz (FF clone) but it sounds way more digital, though it kinda cuts it down to one note...

    I also thought it could be the soda meiser, that thing can get real crazy...

    If it was that easy...

    Doing this using distortion sounds way different from the video...

    I what comes kinda close is a sagged fuzz but still, the dissonant notes come through way cleaner...
