Just installed my new TWA last night. Does anyone have any effects settings to recommend? what are your favorite effects and what settings do you use to make them?
Plate reverb is my favorite!
I like a bit more delay with it, so I set the pre-delay to 19 to give that more of a boost.
With the delay, I keep the reverb dialed back. I feel like too much of the reverb parameter can take away from the delay, so I set it between 4-6 usually.
Doing that makes the delay more apparent.
Just a tip: If you find a setting you really like, make sure to save it so it can be recalled later!
Good point Jim.
The pickups will also play a big part in how the overall tone sounds when being fed into the TWA.
I've got two 000 guitars, one that I made with Bubinga and Spruce and an all mahogany Martin 00015-m, both equipped with the same K&K Pure Mini pickups, but they both sound different due to the different tonewoods. The Mahogany has a much warmer tone and the Bubinga/Spruce is brighter with more mid-range volume.
These tones are picked up by the pickups and I can tell the difference in the effects produced by the TWA.
It really is! The more guitars I work on, the more I find that to be true.
