Yesterday I asked the following Community Question on Twitter and Facebook: “What piece of the tone puzzle are you missing? Guitar? Amp? Pedal(s)? Skill? What do you need to do?” Here were the results! If you want to submit your answer, please comment below!
RChevalier @effectsbay hmmm.. all of them … LOL
idhindsight @effectsbay: Gear can be caught, skill can’t. So that’s what I’m lacking. That and theory.
tiogitar A record deal, that would be a blast
RChevalier @effectsbay we never sufficient skills, and always will exist better equipments
filipeguitar @effectsbay Skill 🙂
SONICSHIFTBAND @thepedalnerd @effectsbay A great sound person running the board ! : )
MMisanthropy @effectsbay Tube poweramp. I’d love a Mesa 2:90 or VHT 2/50/2 but I’ll give the Atomic MB50 a spin.
thomas4th @effectsbay Skill, definitely. Of course, more gear is always nice. 🙂
GuitarJar @effectsbay Skill!
progbusters @effectsbay skills
Paul Licke Skill and practice, lot’s of practice
Otis Ehrlich A 1958 les paul vos and and maybe a marshall plexi superlead?!?!
David Verdugo Fender Twin Reverb and lots of practice.
Matt Wolf I would like to know more about how the order of pedals effects the sound…. I know there are guidelines on how to place your pedals in a chain. Let’s hear more about that.
Florian Zeh Rught now: Amp. Always: Practice.
Dean Tompkins I don’t need skills or practice…I just keep buying more gear cuz THAT will make me sound better….right guys?
Maurice Richard Libby Oddly, what I really need is an amp that gives me the same tone as some if the modellers I use. I’d like an amp that would give me the Tweed and Twin sounds from my Korg Pandora.
Sam Binder practise and a 128-step sequencer. 64 isn’t cutting it. Maybe a better drum brain module too.
Christian Artieda Probably a good amp is what I need right now
Will Peck I’m shopping for a real stage-worthy amp so I can go electric with a full band. I mainly play rhythm (sometimes a little lead) and am leaning toward the ’65 Deluxe Reverb reissue.
Dan Cross Practice. More gigs. More free beer. And a bunch of pedals I’m never going to be able to afford. And a twin reverb.
Ben Brandt Time to practice. Never enough hours in the day.
Mick Blowe Waiting for a local dealer to get the SubDecay Proteus in stock so I can check it out – It’s not the kind of pedal I’d wanna buy without playing it first. But chances are I’ll buy it after playing it for 10 minutes. PS: I had a Deluxe Reverb reissue and it kinda sucked. They’ve really loosened their standards on what constitutes a reissue, and it doesn’t even hold a candle to a real Deluxe, or for that matter, a Top Hat Club Deluxe, which doesn’t have reverb, but blows the current Fenders off.
