I was going to do a Lazer Tone test with Acon Multiply but it inspired some cheap-ass Andy LaRocque shit instead, but damn do I like how this sounds even in the most basic setting. Will mess with this some more.
I think another big part of "Lazer Tone" is an eventide or some other equivalent stereo doubler/chorus. Spreading a mono source out with one of those does something to the hi end that you can't really get with just an eq.
I was thinking something like a fuzz and a boost, but given when these were made and the tambres of the other instruments I feel like it’s gotta be some kind of GK or ADA air Rockman type deal and an egregious rack. The slides and stuff clean up in a weird way that seems to suggest some kind of weird saturation in like one specific area?
Solarbear and I call this “laser tone” and we are on a quest to harness it and wield this tone live.
Sounds like it could be an amp miced up all nice MIXED with a DI'd distortion pedal in parallel. I do that every once in a while if I need a little added presence on top. Also look into sansamps and rockmans and stuff like that.
I'm kind of blown away by what you get for the price. Def up there with some made in USA guitars. I'm glad they are leaning into their roots as an 80's custom shop hot rod guitar brand again. People understandably associate schecter with like 2000's nu metal but people forget they made guitars for Mark Knopler, Yngwie, Pete Townshend (hence the name PT) oh and u know... PRINCE. Their custom shop is really cool and they are working on a bunch of new stuff.
