what guitar effect is this?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by paniak17, Nov 18, 2004.


  1. I want to know what guitar effect is used for the guitar solo in pink floyds "comfortably numb". It sounds like overdrive, but i just want to make sure. Also, what boss effect would be the closest to recreate that sound? I know this is a guitar question, and has nothing to do with bass, but you guys are so helpful, thanks.
     
  2. Just distortion. Maybe a hint of reverb, but you can get a $30 guitar pedal to get that sound for a guitar.
     
  3. well ill be using on my bass, but ill be playing high up their, pretty much past the third octave of E.
