Good tone. We want it! We talk about it and we are searching for it...and some may have found it! But how can we define it? Are we all talking about the same thing?
Tone is also a matter of taste of course. It is like cars. Some like a Porsche others are into Corvette. But they are good cars!
So how about good tone? It is a very difficult question! It is everything a guitarist puts into his (or her) sound! That means guitar amplifier, effects pedals, electric guitar, the use of fingers, emotion........everything!!
That is why you sound different on the same guitar and amp then someone else! You are a unique player and your playing technique influences your tone a lot!!
First you must have some kind of sound in your mind! Cause you have to know what you want!
Then try to nail it! Here starts your search.. there is enough gear to choose from out there…enough to get confused….!
It can be nice to have GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) in search of electric guitar things.. but I remember I ended up with four overdrive pedals that all sounded about the same.
if you can't choose..buy them all!! (Joe Bonamassa)
The best advise I can give you is to keep things simple. To get the tone you like, you just have to follow some logic steps:
Well.. that looks simple, doesn't it?
If you follow these 5 steps, you are one step ahead! But don't forget: tone comes from your fingers also! Step 5 is a really important one!
If Jeff Beck plays on a Marshall or on a Fender Twin, you wil still hear that it is Jeff Beck!
If you have a small budget (hey, not everybody has a large salary yet!) I will also have a look at cheap electric guitars, cheap guitar amps and cheap effects pedals that are good. Believe me, there is a lot of good stuff that is affordable with a small budget!
