I've been playing, gigging and recording in a groove metal/modern metal band for over a year now. Some of my musician friends, strangers at gigs and even the mixing engineer we work with (sound production student at NOROFF in Oslo) have been complimenting my tone. I don't think I do anything special, other than EQ my rig around the other guitarists, but I guess you could say I have found a 'signature' tone over the last year. We are going back into the 'studio' to track more songs we have already written and I wanted to here opinions. What do we all think about sticking to a 'signature tone' versus changing things up and keeping tones fresh? Also, I would appreciate comments/opinions/suggestions on my current tone, and whether I should stick with it or not. Sound samples: My current gear and setup: Schecter Stargazer 5 in drop C > TC Hypergravity Comp in multiband mode > assortment of dirt pedals with parallel dry signal > Two Notes CAB 18" IR > Reverb/delay > MXR 10 band EQ My dirt pedals: - Empress Multidrive a) Overdrive b)Fuzz/Distortion in low pass/high pass setting - B3K clone pedal - DOD Boneshaker (for the really heavy stuff) We record in a few places, tracking guitars/bass at home, vocals at a film studio, and drums where we can (the drummer also does some sample replacement). What about you? Have you found your signature tone or do you like to have something new?
