Little pearls of wisdom tone wisdom that you might want to share with others.

I'm going to post a few obvious ones for beginners, you continue on and get into the better stuff.

  • Because the high and low frequencies are dominated by other instruments in a band, you should fill the mid frequencies for best cut.

  • Tube amps generally sound louder and better than Solid State amps.Single coils are good for clean, with chimey, bell-like tones.

  • Humbuckers, on the other hand, is the raunchier, crunchier pickup.

  • Marshalls give you British tones with it's EL-34 tubes, Mesa gives you American tones with it's 6l6 tubes

Many of these statements happen to be generalizations but if you guys jump in and post your own we could all learn a little something. Thanks!
