How do you...

  1. How do you make your overdrive sound punchy when playing fingerstyle ?

    I switched from pick to finger couple of weeks ago, but i still haven't figured how to get punchy sound from overdrive with fingers..

    so.. how ??

    Up the mids and upper range a little, hit the strings with a more percussive style, or go back to the pick when using distortion.;) I use distortion so rarely that I'm probably not the best one to answer this, but I think those things will work.
     
  3. Where are you getting your overdrive from?
    I've only had that problem with the '
    EBS Multi-Drive.

    Other wise boost at 1kHz and 4kHz.
     
  4. Really ?

    I've got an EBS multidrive.. sounds great with a pick, but it sounds more like a fuzz when i play fingerstyle..

    Can you give me a small recording of fingerstyle + overdrive ?
