What gear does silverchair use to get that rumbly overdrive?
Perhaps a clip of what you are looking for would help.
i really don't know. when i saw them live, i didn't think Chris Joannou used any
Correct me if im wrong, but I think I read somewhere, that he use the MXR preamp/d.i pedal.
He also uses a pair of ampeg B15R combo's so it maybe the overdriven tube amp sound
He definitely uses some sort of fuzz/disortion on Israel's Son. But I don't know about the rest of the time. Listen to this clip, he kicks in a fuzz about 0:14 into the song:
I seem to remember that sounding A LOT better on record than it did in this clip. Might be wrong, though.
Apparently their latest Aussie tour is the first time they've played Israels' Son for 'bout 7 years......I must admit, when I saw them all those years ago, I didn't notice what they used.
When I saw them last year - Chris used no boxes at all, not even a tuner or a volume pedal - just a pair of ampeg flip tops.
I was very surprised.
Daniel on the other hand, has half a music shop worth of pedals.....
I saw them at the Paradise in Boston back on the Neon Ballroom tour, and they led off with Israel's Son, and I specifically remember him stomping a box at the beginning, but I wasn't close enough to see what it was
to me this is a caractheristic sound of the boss ODB3
I'm going to have to agree that sound should be perfectly easy to duplicate with an ODB-3. I would be shocked if that's not what he's using in that clip.
Geeze, I remember seeing that performance on MTV back when Freak Show came out. I imagine his gear has changed quite a bit over the years since that was filmed.
I was just surprised to find out they're still playing. I remember they had a US MTV hit when they were like 15-year-olds, however many years ago that was, and that was the last I heard of them. But Google informs me they are big stars on their home turf.

Daniel certainly has the attitude of a celebrity.
All their recent stuff sounds like it's entirely written by Daniel and the other guys are just playing along because they're getting paid. It doesn't sound like a band any more.
I used to play with the keyboardist who's with them on the current tour.
Sounds like natural distortion to me. I could easily replicate that with running two amplifiers, a la Justin Chancellor.
Silverchair is perhaps THE greatest Aussie band of the 90's. They're up there, with the Powderfinger, Regurgitator, and Spiderbait. Video wise, I'd probably only go for "Freak" if I was GP'ing Rage. It's about the best video of theirs I've seen. Scared me the first time I saw it, though...
Well, actually, any Silverchair song would require natural distortion minus Israel's Son. Israel's Son would require using a stompbox.
Whenever we played Israel's Son I used the Boss Turbo Distortion (DS-2). With a bit of tweaking I think it matches the sound quite nicely.
it's all ampeg (or simulation) to my ears on the majority of songs i've heard from them
