Son of a...what effect is this!?!?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Garrett Mireles, Nov 5, 2002.

  1. Sorry, I don't have an available mp3 or anything.


    I d/l a Metallica outtake in the studio, where they were just screwing around basicly. And kirk, being Kirk, went into an improv solo at the end.

    But as they ended it..they got the guitar to go

    WEEEEEEeeeeeeeeee BOOOOOOMMMMM *distortion and weird effects*


    Anyone know what I'm talking about? How do you get the WEEEEEeeeeeeooooouuuuu part?

    Nothing I've ever heard. Doesn't sound like a Flanger or Phaser either.

    EDIT - Oh, it sounds like a bomb falling...then KABOOM
  2. Umm...feedback, perhaps?

    Dive bomb with the vibrato bar and then some feedback I guess.
  4. Yah... I was thinking a whammy dive of some sort too.
  5. yeah most likely a whammy but could possibly be a wah and distortion...

    Or a pickscrape.
  7. That's gotta be it. Distortion, Wah, Fuzz, maybe some EQ stuff...sounds weird.
  8. Ahh, you gotta love it when people try to express how something sounds through written words.:D I knw, I've done it too.
  9. What album are we talking about here?

    That would narrow it down a bit.
