    I have no experience with effects and I'm trying to get an idea of how certain sounds are achieved. I really like the effects used by Robert Sledge on old Ben Folds Five recordings. Is he getting that sound from a fuzz, overdrive, or distortion pedal? Can anyone list recordings to check out for each?

    I think he used a Rat for most of those sounds
     
  3. I love Robert Sledge's playing, especially on Whatever and Ever Amen. I read somewhere that he uses a Boss Octave, and a Big Muff.
