I've been working on SWS solo 1. I notice in Griffs play along he gets a nice rich sound with good sustain and even volume when he holds a bend. My bends sound tinny and the volume drops off quickly. I know some of it is technic and I am improving but the sound is still light years away from Griffs recording. Is Griff using any special equipment pedals or such to get that nice sound. I have a Fender frontman 25 w and a Line 6 Micro spyder, with a MIM strat, no extra equipment. I have played with the knobs every way shape and form and cannot duplicate that sound. Do I need to add something? I don't want to just throw money at it.
