So Now FEEDBACK is a GOOD Thing??


I remember trying Boss or Ibanez feedbacker pedal in the mid 80's, so it's not a new idea exactly. Yellow box.

And I even remember a guitar that had feedbacker built in back then. Battery inside and a switch to engage it.


Ah yes, the Fernandes Sustainer. I think that's what the Edge of U2 used for the song With and Without You. Not such a bad idea. Sure, limited use, but it sounds good on that song.


Yeah, Fernandes it was. (I always assumed With or Without You was done with ebow.)


@Lacking Talent: not exactly what I had in mind. I'm thinking about that failing/short circuiting instrument cable effect you hear Jack White and Eagles of Death Metal are doing every now and then.

The best use of that I've ever seen was the FOO Fighters. In the studio, they wanted a different effect, so one guy mounts the guitar ready to rip a lead, the other guy on purpose fumbles around creating the all to familiar buzz of a raw lead connected to the amp but not the guitar, a second or two of "fumbling" and BAM a great piece of music...
