The Q ranged from. This allowed Frank to control his feedback characteristics in any hall. He could basically tune his guitar to the room, find out how the room responded to the amplifier, and dial it up so he could have maximum control of the feedback.
That was the whole point behind the equalizers. But Frank also played a lot with his left hand, and in order to hear the nuances — the string presence — he'd have to bring the treble up, which is another thing he liked about the filters. He could pick high frequencies anywhere from 4k to 8k and bring out the nuances of the strings, so you could hear what his fingers were doing, even if he wasn't picking every note.
The Seymour Duncan humbuckers in Frank's Les Paul could be switched between single-coil, humbucking, or single-coil out-of-phase settings, and a toggle switch controlled whether the pickups were wired in series or parallel. A 9-position wafer switch afforded all the possible combinations. Because it's trying to convert AC to steady DC, it produces an abundance of a second harmonic.
It kind of feels like it's feeding back, because you play a note and instantly hear the octave. But any time you play more than one note, it does this horrible modulation stuff, which Frank loved. Zappa admitted to being "real fussy about equalization. I try to find one center notch that's going to emphasize certain harmonics, and ride it right in that area. As a matter of fact, I think I was one of the first people to use wah-wah.
I'd never even heard of Jimi Hendrix at the time I bought mine. In 77 he touted an "attractive little device" he called the Electro Wagnerian Emancipator, which he claimed combined a "frequency follower with a device that puts out harmony notes to what you're playing. You can have your choice of any 12 chromatic notes in four parts following your runs.
You can't play chords with it, but linearly it'll follow you whether you bend or whatever. Its main drawback is that the tone that comes out of it is somewhat like a Farfisa organ. He'd also incorporate the Synclavier into his stage sound, controlling it via a Roland synthesizer pickup. The only devices Zappa kept footside were a Rat distortion box and his CryBaby which were sent through a HushIIB noise reduction unit and a button stereo relay switcher, designed by David Robb, which directed Frank's signal to one of three or four amp setups and brought effects in and out as desired.
On the Mothers' debut album, Freak Out! For '70s al bums like Over-Nite Sensation, Apostrophe, and Zoot Allures, he generally relied on a simple Pig-nose for studio work, switching to Marshall watt heads and Orange amps for tours.
On the tour, according to Meri Saunders, Jr. All the amps had paralleled, hot-rodded inputs doubled into the bass channel, and each setup had a characteristic tone that Frank could blend in or isolate at will using his relay switcher. All the speakers were kept under the band riser pointing towards the rear of the stage, miked with Sennheiser s — and it was loud.
When Frank tore into one of his solos, Saunders says, it "felt like the stage was taking off. It was devastatingly loud, heavy, and feedbacky. Tuning was critical during a Zappa tour. In the studio, the raw guitar signal would be processed yet again.
As Frank told GP's Tom Mulhern in '83, the Dynaflangers could be set to follow the envelope of the high-frequency decay, rather than the amplitude envelope" for what he called a "pillowy effect. Zappa's live recordings usually included a track of direct guitar, and Vai recalls that in the studio Frank would "take the direct track and send it out to different amplifiers.
Then he'd pan those signals with all these odd sounds left and right. You'll hear, for instance, a really clean, flanged guitar on one side, on the other side a Pignose, and in the middle a gargantuan delayed Marshall, all with different reverbs.
That's all experimentation after the fact. In '88 his tone was scary clean and massive. Songstube is against piracy and promotes safe and legal music downloading on Amazon.
