pedals? the FAQ just says "a bunch of pedals"
Posted 20 January 2005 - 10:50 PM
like in untitled, i know they use delay, but what kind?
and what other pedals do they use to get their sound?
i'm only interested because i play guitar.
and here in this post i sound like a confused 12 year old.

I wish I knew exactly as well. I love the guitar sound and I play around all the time with my pedal(s) trying to match it but it's never quite on. :(

Can't be sure, its ages since the old message board was up with the list.

yeah i think its been established that they use 'various pedals'
what we're trying to figure out here is which ones.
my guess is boss dd3 and dd6, maybe RV5 or some type of reverb pedal, unless the only reverb they use is on their amps
a lot of their sound also has to do with pickup selection...
having 2 humbuckers is crucial to getting their sound.... and the selectoer switch brings important sounds... for the rythm part in untitled, you gotta keep it set in the middle position (both bridge and neck pickups), same for the beginning of obstacle 1 (for pauls part) for the other part, the lead riff that goes over the chords, you gotta use the bridge pickup
i dont own any boss delay pedals, but i know at least one has the pitch bending as heard at the end of untitled. paul puts the pedal in 'hold' mode, and then turns down the delay time knob to get the sound to 'slow down' (this is also heard at the end of karma police by radiohead)
i have an ibanez de-7 that will do a similar thing except theres no hold mode, but the pitch bending is fabulous.
im gona dig up the live on letterman video and see what i can find for pedals on the floor (anyone else hear paul mess up on the guitar like twice in this video?)

and i am pretty sure that they use a DD-5, not a DD-6. unless they upgraded recently. other pedals include the Boss CS-3 compression/sustainer and TR-2 tremelo. distortion is a Rat. not sure of recent pedal boards.

I hope this link works...
from left to right:
Boss TU2 Chromatic Tuner
Boss DD5 (or 6) Digital Delay
Boss CS3 Compression Sustainer
MXR M133 Micro Amp
Boss GE7 7-Band Graphic Equalizer
Proco Rat2 Distortion
??? unknown 5 knob pedal ???
edit: unknown pedal might be either a vox or marshall pedal as they also use those. i've seen "vox tonebender" mentioned alot in other threads. this edit is going by info found on guitargeek.com (don't ask about gear there as they will just point you to the search)

i own the dd6 and the hold mode doesn't use the delay time or feedback knob for anything. if i had to take an educated guess i would say it is a mixture of sustain or feedback and slowly turning the delay time. also reverb, obviously, to smooth out the choppy sound that turning the delay knob can give.

thats a nice little setup... ill see if i can figure out what that random 5 knob pedal is
i like how they have all the knob settings mapped out... its cute :)
for all my band's songs i jus remember all the settings... which aint easy when your board looks like this

yeah maybe instead of hold he just gives it a high feedback... cuz it does sort of slowly fade out

i would say the sound at the start of not even jail is the delay again. long feedback and turning the delay time knob up and then down (the speed up is faint). i haven't been able to recreate the exact sound but thats how it's done. it could either be that the dd-6 sounds more digital (though i thought the dd-5 and 6 are exactly the same except for extra features) or i'm just not using enough finesse when turning the knob.

it definately is a phaser effect. I'm in a band that knows a fair bit of interpol and we've played that song, and you might be right, it could be done with a delay, but the sound can be perfectly replicated with a phaser pedal if you tweak the phase shifting a little.

what phaser do you use?
the freq sweep is down only, not up and down like most phasers...
maybe a boss ph3
to me it sounds like a phaser going half way thru its cycle which is then repeated by a delay
although it does slow down a bit, suggesting the tweaking of a rate knob

I was at their concert and noticed Daniel using an Epiphone Elitist Riviera. I have a pic but I don't know how to post it.

untitled is a delay pedal, and hes got a high feedback setting and hes taking the delay time setting and turning it up and down
i can get the same exact sound on my delay
