If we all confessed - would it be secret anymore ? bear / woods type of thing ?
quidproquo: art tube mp straight in to FOH bass or guitar--warm clean tone under $40
ok Clarice - george dennis stereo delay reverb - on all the time. Bought it from a Canadian music store / studio used that went out of business somewhere up in @Robb Country - 60 plus shipping
Secret Sauce? Steel Reserve, 24oz worth and no more. Must be ice cold, too. Brings out the magic every time.
I did exactly that for a couple years, then I got my Mustang III, and didn’t need it anymore on Guitar.
I used it on bass right up until I got my Fender Rumble 150 (few years back). I haven’t seen it since the move, I may have traded it to someone.
Geddy Lee uses the rack version religiously, they now have a signature version out.
My open secret sauce is my Mustang III, and the specialized presets for my main guitars (mostly tweaked tone stacks): ‘Dan ‘65 Reverb S (Strat), T (Tele), 339, ‘51, etc... you get the idea
priming the pump ! ! !
My slightly out there pedal is a Digitech Dirty Robot synth pedal. It's limited in use, it would definitely get too much if you used it on every track but it certainly is distinctive. It has an envelope filter and vocal formant modes. Highly recommended if you're looking for something a bit unusual. Works great for bass too.
I grab stereo heads from Goodwill or garage sales when I see a good deal. They work fine as guitar amps, as long as you use effects pedals in front of them. My most recent grab is a Pioneer VSX-9700S that someone had in their trash pile on the street. I have a video on Youtube of how to use a stereo receiver as an amp head.... you can re-wire the headphone jack to be a guitar input, and away you go!
it is truly awesome to put speakers on each side of the room, and set your guitar rig to some spacey wide stereo chorus and reverb, with some ping-pong delays.
