  • Metallic sound

    Every time I listen to STP "Plush" I hear this metallic sound when he is muting and pausing while keeping time. Today I was listening to Hagar's "Heavy Metal" and a similar sound there too.
    How are they getting that sound and what causes it? Is it muting & harmonics, fresh strings, and studio eq'ing?

    I'm not familiar with the Hagar tune, but on Plush it sounds like he's just releasing the chord while strumming, combined with gain & a bit of light flanging

      man, you need to pull that tune up on youtube or something, thats a classic pre VanHagar tune ! THough I wouldnt call it metal per se, more like basic good old fashioned rock,

      A few Charvels, a bunch of Jacksons, JVM full stack, valve king half stack and an 4000 watt PA for a home stereo, my neighbors love me....
