Need help with Bob's effect types.....

Postby oldjoebones » Wed Mar 30, 2011 11:11 am

Looking for a little input on the effects types and order they would somewhat go in. I obviously just looking to get close considering I will never be exact!!

Gear I have available:

Fender Blues deluxe reissue / with effects loop

Pedals available:

EQ -Boss
Wah/Envelope Filter - Digitech
OD - Boss
Flanger - Boss
Phaser - Boss
Compressor/Sustainer - Boss
Chorus - Boss
Delay - Boss

not really sure what to put into FX loop as well if any.

What guitar are you using?

I recently got a '78 Ibanez Artist model 2619 (with the tri-sound Super 80's) that produces great Bobby tones with minimal effects.

Guitar is the most important, of effects, most say flanger.

Being able to put humbuckers into series is a big step and then the out of phase is another key function

Im using a Fender Strat Deluxe.

I do realize the guitar and the p/u's make a difference but at this point picking up another guitar is slim as my pool heater just blew up and its gonna cost $3000.00 to replace.

If I can get close with what I have......... I will make due until I can get another guitar suited for the sound.

you might as well have just spoken chinese to me...not to good with electronics as far as how they are wired.

You can have a toggle switch that changes the wiring scheme of a humbucker pickup!

I think last time I did this it was about $150 and that included a setup!!

What guitar are you thinking of and what pickups does it have in it?

From your list I think most would work less: comp, chorus

Well I had been looking at the Ibanez Prestige S5470.

Reason being my hands are not big paws and the neck thickness "C" is a little thinner the the standard 21mm at the same spot. The thinner neck (depth wise) helps me reach and play cords better.

NECK DIMENSIONS

Scale/Length 648mm/25.5"
a: Width at Nut 43mm
b: Width Last Fret 58mm
c: Thickness 1st Fret 17mm
d: Thickness 12th Fret 19mm
Radius 430mm

PICKUPS
Bridge Pickup
Name: Hot Grinder 2
Model No: HGD2
Construction: Humbucking
Magnet: Ceramic
Description: Hot, but sharp enough to hear the pick bite the strings.

Middle Pickup
Name: Short Tracer
Model No: ST2
Construction: Single Coil
Magnet: Neodymium
Description: Alnico magnet provides full output in low profile setting.

Neck Pickup
Name: Hot Grinder 1
Model No: HGD1
Construction: Humbucking
Magnet: Alnico
Description: Hot, but sharp enough to hear the pick bite the strings

Looks nice, dude! Jemsite says it has 4 cables and that's what's needed to do a mini-toggel!!!!

Green = hot
White + Red = series link/coil tap
Black + Bare = Ground

This is probably a stupid question but since I have no idea what the wiring scheme does............does it give a different sound than normal when the switch is toggled? If so what kind of sound?

Yes, series if full and bold like an LP, single is like a strat, series is inbetween but more like a single!

When you put 2 sets of pickups out of phase you get some quack and phasey to your sound!
