What Dual Tone Like?

Recommended Posts

I've only used one signal path on my X3 Pro and I've been fairly satisfied. I'm just wondering what playing through two signal paths is like? Could I get a thicker sound that way? Like play through a JCM 800 on one path and a JCM 2000 on the other?

yeah, you can do that... you can also do vocals or bass through the other path or whatever you want... its a nice option.

There are a couple of ways that dual tones have worked well for me. One is to have a gainy amp on one of the tones and a clean on the other. A Marshall Plexi with an AC30 is a pretty sweet combo. Ben from Skillet used to use a Fender Twin with a Dual Rectifier, same idea. The other is to use two gainy amps side by side. Seth Morrison, Skillet's new guitar player uses a Peavey and a Dual Rectifier. It's a nice combo on the POD. If you're looking for more low end, try mixing the JCM800 with the "big bottom" amp model. It takes a little time to get something that sounds good, but it's worth it. I've uploaded a bunch of dual tones to customtone, search on my username.

Lemme start off by saying I play mostly metal. (and most of its subgenres) For me, 1 signal chain always sounded a bit weak. But using 2 tones, panning one to the left and one to the right.... That can produce wanders. Try it for yourself and you will see. Experiment. Using 2 tones always sounds sweeter than using 1, especially if you pan them properly.
