Retro Tone?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by moptoptony, May 25, 2003.


  1. Would it be possible for me to achieve a warm, retro tone with this setup:

    Ibanez GSR190 (Two volumes, one tone)
    P/J pickups
    Nickel roundwounds
    10W practice amp (Bass, Mid, Treble, Presence, Volume)

    If not, please tell me what I'd need to improve on my sound. Thanks a bunch.

    It'll be hard to achieve any really good sound with that setup (I had almost the same thing to begin with). No effect will really help you here, and the wisest use of your money is to save for a better bass and amp. Doing that you can get whatever you want, and you'll be much happier in the end.
