For that tune I was going straight through the pedal board with nothing engaged and into a Marshall MG30CFX. The Marshall was mic’d.
I use ONLY the clean channel on that amp. The rest are rubbish. But I crank both the gain and the volume all the way up and adjust the break-up by adjusting the master volume. Julien thinks I play too loud. 😉
So when I go to chords, you can hear just a tiny little bit of overdrive. I backed off a bit after the third chord so I wouldn’t step on Julien’s melody playing.
That particular emando has a Kent Armstrong humbucking pickup hanging on the end of the fretboard, and it’s fully acoustic in construction rather than chambered. A real Jazz box. So it was designed for as warm as sound as possible for a soprano instrument. Which is all probably why it sounds Garcia-like.
Depending on the song I add some more overdrive, a bit of compression, a bit of mid-range EQ boost, or a straight boost. When we play “Wish You Were Here” I use an octave pedal for the melody bits.
I get a Trey Anastasio sound when adding a bit of compression and overdrive. 🙂
