  • How did Billy Corgan get this sound?

    The water-y sound. Is this a Leslie effect or chorus. Anyone know EXACTLY the effect? I want me one.

            I thought that was a fuzz type pedal. I'm talking about the shimmering sound going on the clean part.

                The h&k rotosphere is one of the best and I really like my option 5 destination rotation but I can't wait for the strymon lex to come out, after doing some checking it looks like Billy uses a DLS Rotosim which is supposed to be good pedal but I've never played one myself. These are some good options but I assure you none of them are cheap unfortunately.

                  Those wishy-washy parts are played by James.

                  But yeah, sounds like a Leslie of some sort.

                    Maybe live, but Billy recorded the early stuff himself (including bass):wave:

                      I think that came later, like Mellon Collie era. It was Marshalls and Muffs on the first 2 records

                        On Siamese Dream, yep. On the majority of MCIS. But not on Gish. :cop:

                          Gish's dirty tones were ADA MP-1 into the effects loop of a JCM 800 2203, and I don't think there's any Big Muff on the record at all.
