  1. Hello, this is my first post on this board, and I figure there is no better way to find an answer to my questions.

    Does anyone out there know what type of effect Shavo from System of a Down uses during the intro to "Psycho"? Its track 13 on Toxicity, I also believe he uses one during the second verse of "ATWA" which is track 9. And if Im not mistaken, Paul D'Amore used one when recording "Sober" for Undertow. Ive never know what effect it is, and I love the way it sounds...I think it might be some strange chorus...but I dont know..please if anyone knows, end my agony and tell me what type of effect that is.
  2. Choruson an overdriven amp?
  3. I don't know about shavo...but Im pretty sure Paul just has his mid's up really high and hits his strings extremely hard when playing sober.
  4. A flanger and really heavy down riffs.
