  • Worst professional guitar tone?

    I'm talking people who are "technically" musicians not 16 year old pizzafaces playing through a line 6 on insane with bass and treble on 10 and mids on 2 that whore youtube and guitar center.

    I have the poll just to see who people think has worse tone out of them, but of course post whoever you feel has the worst.

      I really like this band, and I like this song, but the acoustic in the beginning is the best example of bad piezo tone.

        OMG piezo acoustic tone is death, in a live setting I am sure it would do fine but I don't get if you have the option to switch to an acoustic (like you do in the studio) then why use a mimic?

          Really? I love Neil's tone. I'd rather listen to him than any pasteurized blues or scooped tone shredding. Vive la diff
          Arrangements? How about I hit on two and four, and you shut the **************** up?

              I thought the same thing when I got this album. Elsewhere on the album, they use a mic'd acoustic tone. I agree, it makes no sense to use a piezo in that situation.

                    There's a GOOD piezo tone somewhere?
                    On stage, I'd just as soon see em pull out a tele for those parts. Leave the acoustics in the studio.

                        I think piezo is fine. It's a different sound altogether than anything you can get any other way.

                              I LOVE Randy and I respect Dimebag, but theirs are the first two tones that come to mind.

                              I certainly don't like Kerry King's tone, but his is unique. He has a weird, droppy thing he does with the trem that makes him sound pretty distinctive. The first time I ever heard No Sleep Til Brooklyn, I immediately said, 'That's Kerry King from Slayer!' There's a lot to be said for that.
