    Does anybody know what effects Les Claypool commonly uses? I love his style and sounds and would like to use some similar sounding effects on a couple of songs my band is writing.

    Here we go AGAIN:

    Line 6 DL4 Delay Modler
    Line 6 DM4 Distortion Modler
    Mutron III (actualy Larry's but les uses it more)
    ADA MP2 rackmount guitar preamp
    Electro Harmonix Bass Mirco Synth
    A bunch of vintage korg pedals, I think an octaver, and a phase shifter...

    There are more, but thats all I can rememeber for now...

    Alex

    ps. He also uses a Access Virus B for synth sounds and controls it with a set of MIDI bass pedals (I think they are korg)...

    pss. try and use the search function...

    I thought his ADA's were a thing of the past?
    Does he really use Ler's Mutron live? He used to have some wicked envelope patches on a Korg multi-effects thingy. Anyway, I thought I'd add that he also uses 2 sansamp's for different clean tones.

    he does have several of those-- one per bass to compensate for different output levels, or something like that.
     
  8. Isn't Les Claypool an UPRIGHT player?

    oh, and I think he plays distortion...maybe.





    ---I'm so kidding. Alex is exactly right.
