Awhile ago I made a thread on how to get Stefan Lessard's (DMB) tone. Well there was alot of people who were claiming "oh he has thousands of dollars of gear blah blah blah." There were also alot of people who were curious as how to get the smooth, burpy midrange. Well tonight, I was down the old guitar center, and for the hell of it I tried a 50 dollar compression pedal. I plug it in and turn it up, and there it is, without question, that is his tone. It is very very compressed. Now, this is after I spent 2 thousand dollars on a rig to try and get that tone, I look at a used pedal and there it is. For those who are wondering it's a digi-tech compression and something else. I'm just about ecstatic right now.
