  • How Close Am I to a Ramones Cover Sound?

    So our bass player wants to cover some Ramones stuff and I'm trying to get my tone as close as possible. Am I good to go or do I need some tweaking?

    Come down a bit in the distortion, up the treble, lower the bass a hair.

      This.
      It sounds a bit too "bassy" for them.

          Haha. His guitar is probably too nice and refuses, by its nature, to make a sound like anything the Ramones produced.

            Just a run of the mill Jazzmaster .

            I always kind of liked the Ramone's tone. It's just kinda raw and unpolished but I usually like those kinds of tracks the best. Modern stuff is just over-produced in my opinion.

                I pretty much agree with everyone else here. A bit less distortion, and more treble and less bass. You really need that bite

                  Whatever you do, DON'T cover "Somebody Put Something in My Drink." Worst song EVARRRRRRRRRRRRR.



                  WORST SONG EVER. SERIOUSLY.

                    Its the Ramones. Just get a good raw edgy power chord tone and you should be fine. Why chase a tone when the originals sounded different each gig they played anyway?

                      The Ramones are about cranked non-master Marshalls. Sounds like you're using too much preamp distortion, and as mentioned, too much bass.

                        +1. It's about single coil clang cranked through an old Marshall.

                          I just listened to it (couldn't earlier). Its pretty close man, just cut back on bass and gain and you're there.
