Approximating the classic Rush guitar tone. Thread starter DoomsdayArsenal Start date Nov 23, DoomsdayArsenal Member. Messages 9. Not too much fuzziness, but a pretty solid overdrive sound. Which pickup neck or bridge? In conjunction with the best pedal of these 4 mentioned Fuzz, Muff, Tube Screamer, Blues Driverand the best Strat pickup setting for the RUSH tone, what are some good basic guidelines for choosing my amp Album) I'm constantly experimenting and getting some good tones but nothing I can really depend on for like, all my rock tones.
Alex Lifeson's tone is very similar from song to song. Mine is just I'm just trying to get as close as possible to the Rush tone using the gear I have.
Fenders are obviously a far cry pun! Thanks, guys. Messages 2, If, in having the gain at a lower setting, things seem weaker, you're not playing loud enough! A subtle chorus or flanger would also help out on the Hemispheres - Signals era tones.
Messages 7, That era of Rush was very much about the chorus sound. How loud do you play? A lot of that sound is also about a loud, punchy tube amp, and pedals are no substitute for volume.
If you're Album) playing loud, a smaller amp might be in order so you can get it cooking. And finally, take some advice from Tom Morello. After fussing with his amp for years, trying to get the "best" sound, he realized he wasn't making any progress. He took a marker and marked the settings on his JCM at that moment. Rather than chasing the sound, he forced himself to STOP chasing the sound. A wise, wise man. If you're not happy with your tone, maybe consider getting away from the Strat?
I wasted years trying to get the sounds I wanted from a Strat. Finally, I ditched my Strat and got a Gibson Blueshawk, and suddenly had tone. It's not about better or worse, it's about what matches how you play and how you hear. These days, I only play two electric guitars - a Telecaster, and a Strat with two humbuckers.
I don't feel I'm missing anything. At any rate, there's very little ground to be gained by swapping pickups on the same basic design if you don't love the tone of the basic design in the first place. Pickups are a second-order, maybe third-order change compared to switching guitars.
Messages If I were you I would get Album) Strat with two humbuckers and no single Album). Also get a chorus. Views Read Edit View history. Help Learn to edit Community portal Recent changes Upload file. Download as PDF Printable version.
