Paul. I use a TS9 at full distortion with the output at unity gain. This goes into a POG 2. The signal then goes into a Dirty Little Secret. Make my guitar sound like Deep Purple's heavy distorted organ.
That'll work. I think Jon Lord was Deep Purple's MVP.
Omnichords, haven't seen any since the 90's. You strummed a length of metal strips that played a full chord while depressing a single chorded button with the other hand. Had a harp tone to it, but got nice and nasty with my little Marshall amp.
a quick little visit back to ruining a guitar, d'oh
There used to be a hilarious video on Youtube(can't seem to find it anymore) of an all girl punk band. The singer/guitarist decided to smash her guitar on the stage, and ends up tearing up the entire stage instead. The video goes on for over 10 minutes, guitar never breaks and she wears her shelf out trying. Hilarious.
record in a hospital stairwell to get killer reverb. funny, the lower (and stinker) in the stairwell the better the reverb.
Styrofoam cup over a microphone to get a "vintage" style sound. Worked pretty well.
Many moons ago, I worked as a recording engineer. Had a band come in one time that wanted to record their lead vocals through a battery-powered megaphone. I could have worked some signal processing magic that would have emulated the sound, but there's nothing quite like the real thing!
an old post of mine ; make your guitar sound like a church bell .
