For the past few months, I have been playing 7 strings regularly for the first time. And I've noticed that normal tones and settings that I apply to my 6 strings dont quite fit my 7. Is there anything you take into considertation when working on a tone for your 7 string? Your older 7 string video, you have a very smooth and relaxed tone that doesnt seem to...Muddy I guess, like mine. I have an EQ set to accent the lower end a bit more, But is there anything else you do?
All help is much appreciated.
That's a good question.
Now I have a confession to make, when it comes to gear, tone settings, and anything related to tone, I am pretty much clueless.
I know what I like or what I don't, but when looking for the tone, I usually just turn a bunch of buttons until I hear something I like. There are no rules that I go by because I don't know the rules.
I wish I was more knowledgeable in that matter. That is something I'd really like to spend time on.
That's why I usually rely on presets. I bought a Boss GT8 a while back and pretty much use some factory presets on all my lessons.
For the 7 string lesson I did a while back I used my Line 6 Spider 2 "insane" preset tone.
I'm sorry I'm not being helpful here.
Any one else has any suggestions?
