  • Hum are awesome

    If you dont like Hum, I probably dont like you.





    Anyone know what they were using for distortion? I remember hearing it was some old Boss Metal pedal or something.

    Hum is a big influence on our band. I love "heavy by ripping" instead of chugga tough minor heavy.

    They rip.

                  Great band that had a huge musical influence on me.

                      interesting.

                      I have this pedal, and it didn't sound like Hum.

                        Did you play it into a crack to **************** vintage Orange amp? Also, wasn't the Boss SF-1, just the DS-1 with the feedback circuit added? I believe the other guitarist was using an Ibanez Smash Box. It seems like cheap gainy distortion pedals into huge 100 watt tube amps make a pretty good wall of noise.

                              Hum and Failure top out my favorites list.

                              Tim Lash was using a Jackson Soloist (now, but back then it was a bastard Gibson/Fender hybrid) through a Tech 21 Sans Amp and Ibanez PL-5 Power Lead (see my sig) into a Hiwatt. Matt Talbot ran his Gibson through a Boss Super Feedbacker and Distortion through a dual Orange set up. There were a metric **************** ton of different equipment used on Downward is Heavenward, but that's the majority of it. I'll link to photos of their pedalboards from the Hum reunion shows in Chicago last year.
                              Rig:
                              A variety of guitars with ebony fretboards
                              JCA 50H into a Whitebox Modern 2x12, loaded with Celestion Lynchbacks
                              An ever-changing ****************storm of pedals.

                              ALWAYS on the lookout for 90's-era ESPs, but especially the Horizon and Hybrid II.
