After 30 years of trying I finally have my electric tone dialed in. I'm playing through my Deville 4x10, turned up to about 8 with a power soak in the effects loop. For effects I'm using nothin' but a Fulltone Plimsoul (Best distortion pedal ever, IMO). I have another gain booster and some effects downstream that are turned off 90% of the time (you know how that goes).
My main guitar uses Lace Sensors, so I just crank the plimsoul and roll off volume for my clean sounds. It works really well and sounds pretty darned good.
However lately I've been experiencing a weird artifact that sounds and feels a lot like a wolf tone, which is weird for an electric instrument. Playing in low (or open) position I get a ton of sympathetic ringing and resonance around open Gb (I tune down 1/2 step). It's been really bugging me. I thought re-tubing would help so I did that. No help. New batteries in all my pedals? No help. When it rings it rings LOUD and it distracts the hell out of me.
Weirdest of all, I'm listening to a rehearsal from last night and I can't find the sound ANYWHERE.
1. Am I crazy?
2. Has this happened to you?
3. If "no" to 1 and "yes" to two, is the problem that I drank too much or did not drink enough before rehearsal?
