Re: [Axemaster] A Guitar's sound...
- From MY personal experience over the last twenty plus
years playing myself as well as live AND studio mixing
for various acts, the biggest difference is in the
equipment used and HOW that equipment is connected ie,
the order and individual settings of EACH pice of
equipment. You said that between the cheaper and more
expensive guitars that there is little difference. The
best way to determine this is to take two of your
favorite guitar designs like a Strat compared to a
vintage Les Paul, there is SO MUCH difference that you
would be hard pressed to NOT notice it!! The board(s)
used to play through as well can be a huge factor in
your individual sound. There are eq's built into EACH
TRACK of a sound board that can either be used alone
or in conjunction with an eq pedal. The rest of the
effects (octavers, chorus or even the multi digi-tech
units out there) that can make a major impact on the
sound that you produce. Then there is pick-style for
your individual playing that changes tonality and
clarity of your notes. Techniques like palm-muting
during play can give you more of a 'squealing' sound
than just up and down strumming... there are way too
many factors to list, these are just a few rudimentary
examples of the factors that can and DO make a
difference for each player... keep pushing your own
envelop until you hit on what works for you and then
TURN IT UP!! Hope that helps or at least clears some
shit up for you... anybody else have any thoughts on
