Effect used on Puff the Magic D by Me First & tgg ?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Doryan, Sep 19, 2002.


  1. I want to know wich effect (if it is an effected sound) is used in the song Puff the Magic Dragon by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.

    I'm guessing ring modulation.

    Or is it just playing with a pick through a slightly driven amp ?

    Ring modulators sound nothing like overdrive. How could you confuse the two?:eek:
     
  3. If you listen very carefully, you listen very carefully; you'll here the bass almost sounding like a bell being tolled.

    So I'm guessinge there's al little bit of ring modulator used, or some other effect.

    So if someone who knows this band pretty good could tell my how to achieve that sound.
