Dating stratocaster pickups movies with older men dating younger women
This would be a great reason to buy the book :-) HOWEVER!That’s not the sole reason why it's a great book :-( Many writers have contributed and all the important artists have been covered. The weird thing about the book is that's it's actually a good read for both beginners and old-timers like me. This book is also full of great pics and anecdotes, but you should really check it out for yourself! Here's a link to it on Amazon: Rockabilly: The Twang Heard 'Round the World: The Illustrated History I never heard anything better than a Fender if we're talking about the big manufacturers.It doesn't have to be vintage at all, but they do look pretty cool. The distortion (which is where you get the right sound from) changes dramatically with change of volume.Actually I started out playing a vintage Vox AC 30 and it wasn't bad at all. That's very impractically when you play live, where you have to adjust the volume after the size and acoustics of the place where you playing.Later on, in the Guitar section, I'll also talk about Standel and Echo Sonic, but they're produced in such small numbers that it's fair to say they'll only have historic interest to the most of us So...As long as you get a Fender you'll probably be on the right track, because they all sound pretty good.Still, live I don't see why there should be any difference, if you set your amp right.
Here's a picture of my "live" settings for the Boss DD-3.
Other analogue equipment, like tube preamps, does make sense, but as the digital effects get better, there's not all that much to gain by spending tons of $ on analogue equipment.
The long and the short of it is, that analogue equipment is cool, but often costs too much and is unreliable.
Anyway, I AM in good company with the DD-3 as Scotty Moore (Elvis Presley) also is using one nowadays alongside with a chorus (to emulate the frequency impurity of a tape echo). I haven't tried this one myself, but the online sound samples on BOSS' website sound pretty convincing to me.
However, I'd like to mention some alternatives: Other effects : Distortion : The BOSS FBM-1. I still prefer the Sans Amp though, and I think it's more HI-FI than the BOSS (It SHOULD be actually, because it's a studio effect, which is a notch or two above a guitar pedal in sound quality).The sound was very Many Rockabilly guitarists play a '59 Fender Bassman (or similar) - vintage or reissue. I found a way to get around that and always have the same "Bassman-sound" no matter what volume I'm playing at...
