I am in the beginning stages of a new band and as we all know, that can lead to excitement but also frustration. The guitarist talked to me about the tone he was getting from his amp, and how he didn't like it. So I offered to dabble with his settings and see what we can work with (one of the things I'm good at is finding a great tone.) So before I started touching any knobs, I asked him to play me a sound clip of something that has a similar tone to what he wanted. He shows me, and I was able to replicate it very well but he didn't like when I turned his gain down from 11. He said it sounded harsh, so I turned the gain all the way back up and he was much happier. Although it sounded absolutely nothing like the tone he showed me. So the gain is all the way back up and I'm trying to find a way to get that tone which is impossible. I noticed that the tone he wanted was a little more bassy so I asked him to try both pickups instead of just the bridge, he says ok and starts playing. I turn away from the amp after much frustration and I look over and hes still using just the bridge pickup. So I set everything back to how he pretty much had it, I ask "hows that?" He said it was great and he was all excited about his "new" tone. Man I could use a cigarette right about now.
