  • OT: palm mutes.....difference between bridges?

    Feel-wise, I prefer Floyds, or any other flat-saddled bridge. Sound-wise, I can't tell the difference.

      Nope.

      The only thing that bugs me is getting used to my strat then going to the les paul. The lp takes me some getting used to for palm mutes.

        I think my pt-60 feels the best, with the xiphos right after.

          I always palm mute in front of the bridge, so I don't care. It just has to be set up right for tight response.

              Dude WTF?

              I thought you knew I can NOT ****************ING PALM MUTE ON A RAISED BRIDGE!!!!!

              I love Les Pauls and can't play them for ****************. I have zero speed and sound like dog ass on any raised bridge.

              Fender style bridges and Floyds I have no problems on.

                Yea, fixed don't sound as good as string through (tuneomatic), then floyds sounding the best. Maybe its the feel.

                  sometimes a floating bridge will do that cool trill sound but you may not always want that

                    I don't understand why it would make a difference at all. Seriously, why does it make a difference?

                      i bought a three saddle short telly bridge for my hard tail strat because i remember how awsome it was palming on an old telly in the 80`s

                        I prefer fixed bridges if using a lot of force and really digging in. Sometimes floyds can get sounding ugly in that case. By the same token, a Floyd bridge kind of adds its own zing IMO

                            Most floyds feel a little awkward for me when palm muting because they are so low but I get used to it pretty quickly.

                            My favorite right now, due to nothing but being used to it, is the tuneomatic.

                              Funny I wondered the same thing as the original post. I don't know for sure if one could record palm muting themes with two similar guitars with different bridges and actually pinpoint a difference under heavy gain.

                              Still, I prefer floyds by a mile for this particular type of playing. Name it how you like: the way the hand touches the strings/rests on the guitar at the same time. And for me it is, you play like you feel most of the time.

                              Also it is kind of weird but even acoustically I have not found a tune-o-matic guitar that doesn't go "boing-ghhh" at the end of the note on some bass frequencies when you palm mute. Again I don't know if this passes through the amp so much but I hear it and feel it. Many claim trem guitars rob the frequency spectrum of some bass content and sustain of the guitar. Well, good for them comparatively because that makes them faster in my oppinion and tighter.


                              Mr hetfield would disagree perhaps but he uses a known active EMG pickup with razor sharp sound anyway!!!
                              "is this tone obtainable using the HD500 or Axe Fx? Overall, for convenience and volume control, should I buy the Axe Fx over actual tube amps? I don't plan on playing loud; just playing at home and recording on my Mac. Thanks man, you are awesome!


                              short answer: no...

                              long answer: no way..."
