  • What effects do you prefer for your lead tones???

    For years I've been using the proverbial delay+verb without even giving too much though about it. It always sounded good so why change it. But tonight I was playing with my multi-fx and came up with a dry lead tone with a touch of phaser that is just killer. Very different than my usual tone but still very cool.


    So what do you guys normally use on your lead tone, besides the amp gain, boost etc??

    Depending on the song. I don't like to use f/x much at all unless I absolutely have to. Wah is the obvious other. Wah and octaver sounds pretty cool too.

                Wah, chorus, phaser, reverb, octave, ring mod and the all important volume. I use them all, sometimes a couple together, depending on what the song calls for.

                    Chorus is cool for melodic lines, all my effects are pretty subtle.

                        I'm a reverb junkie. I bought a delay pedal but hardly use it because I just note like the mush of notes it creates. I'm probably not using it to it's potential but I just prefer the echo of reverb.

                        Occassionaly chorus but it's more for cleans.

                          Wah, delay, and compression.

                          Other than reverb for clean tones, those are the only effects I give a **************** about.

                            I feel slightly like I'm cheating for using compression, though my playing is generally pretty well volume balanced, I use compression as a boost, it's usually on for leads, depends what I'm playing though. If I'm playing metal, deffinately, blues, no.

                              Barber Tone Press is the best compressor ever. It lets you blend the compressed tone w/ the dry/uncompressed signal and it sounds fantastic.
