  • Ideas on getting this sound?

    I'm wondering if its a tuning or pedal thing? Thoughts?

    What about it gets your attention?

    Itís how I would expect an old school archtop with a P90 to sound like. I assume itís open tuning for slide but I donít think that has to do with the tone.

      Sounds like an open D or lower tuning on a dead no-sustain arch top with a low powered single coil in the neck through an amp that can't even handle that much.

      You could simulate that on a solid body guitar by using nylon core strings or dead solid nickel flats and lowering the single coil pickup away from the strings. Use a small speaker amp like a Champion 600 and dime it, little boost before if you have to. Wail away.

        Agree: weak pickup, old dead strings, guitar with not much sustain, small amp, and slightly out of tune.
        Depending on what aspect of the sound you like, it's an open chord tuning but it's also not quite in tune. If it's the overall sound you like, you really only get that with a full hollowbody and a low output neck pickup. There is no pedal what will give you that tone. It starts with the hollow wooden box she's playing.

          Also sounds (and looks) like a brass/bronze slide rather than glass.
          Oh no.....


          Oh Yeah!
