Topic: Joe's Big Reverbicated/delayed tone.
The very first thing i noticed about Joe B's tone when i first heard him was that he had a really nice subtle delay that really cleans up his gain and gives humongeous depth to his tone. this sound is mostly from the New Day Yesterday Live CD and blues deluxe era. Joe says he uses a Boss DD-3, i bought one and fooled with it, and i just cant get it to sound right, its too in the way and digital sounding, so i returned it and got an Ibanez AD-6 Analog Delay pedal, its better, but still way too in your face with a high gain setting. Im not looking to get Joe Bonamassa's tone, i just want to know how he works his delay, does anyone have any suggestions? again, im not looking for "Run Like Hell" really prominent delay, its almost used as a reverb, i just cant seem to find a pedal that works. heres the funny thing. I can achieve this tone on my practice amp its a Marshall MG30, the delay that comes with that amp is Phenomenal!! the amp is just too small. I need a good delay for my Jcm900 cuz it doesnt come with any effects. all comments welcome!
