ADDITION NOTES ON SRV'S PEDAL


SRV used the TS 808 not for the distortion, but to push his power tubes harder into overdrive. He was shooting for more gain, not distortion.You too can get very close to this sound, using a tube screamer, but to do so it requires you to crank your amp up.

Vol/gain - 11

treble/high - 8 to 10

mid - 4 to 7

.....

ERIC JOHNSON - DIMEBAG DARRELL LEAD SOUND


You will need to add some delay and reverb to your sound, but not enough to cover up your notes. This is where adding a compression pedal will greatly help. Through into this mix an overdrive pedal. A distortion pedal does not work well for lead guitar.

SET YOUR AMP TO;

drive - 10 (without a compressor)

drive - 7 (with a compressor)

bass - 7

mids - 10
