    Does anyone know of any sort of effects pedal that will give me a sound like slipknot's paul gray?

    I assume you mean overdrive right? I think his overdriven tone comes from the Peavey tube amps he uses, but a sansamp bass driver will get you close in my opinion.

  3. It's fairly obvious to me that you haven't even bothered searching the forum for references to slipknot. Why don't you try that first and then come back and have a more informed discussion?

    My 2 cents - there's no single pedal that's going to instantly and magically make you and your rig sound like anyone. Furthermore, I question the usefulness of wanting to sound exactly like someone else, regardless of how much you like their sound. Find your own way, mang! It's a million times more satisfying.

    First of all, i did search but found nothing. Second of all, I did not mean I wanted to sound exactly like Paul, I just wanted to emulate his tone because it appealed to me. And i could always build upon that to find my own unique tone.

    Slipknot is probably in the top 2 of my favorite bands of all time... but I've never found Paul Gray's tone particularly notable.
