    You can haz. And haz.

    But isn't there supposed to be distortion at some point?

    Haha. I don't know the ways of distortion connoisseurs yet. When I do it, all I hear is my unique tone go bye bye.

    I'm going to say no. Too smooth, too soft of an attack, too much pick noise.

    Use a thinner pick to get rid of some of that attack. Kurt used a .60mm Orange Tortex. 10-52 strings if you care about that, too. Also get a DS-1.

    I found that a DS-2 really seemed to nail a lot of those Nirvana type tones.

    Add a little high end and some chorus and you’ll nail it.

    That's the Turbo Distortion, right? That's what Kurt used most of the time, but DS-1s are way cheaper and work really well for that sound.

    Nevermind toanz are my least favorite. Favorite studio sound would be In Utero but their live carnage is my favorite. Have a listen to the clean tone in the intro. Sounds super pawn shop and yas there is pick sound. Similar to my toanz. Er my toanz are similar.

    I don't like playing with distortion. It totally kills the uniqueness of my sound. I guess if I had a giant rig I could find a way to sound organic, but I'm not in a band right now. Is there a box that still sounds organic? I really like the intricacies of the guitar and amp in clean tone. Here's one of my favorite Cobain clean toanz. Love that washed out sound. I'm obsessed with how Cobain played Fender a lot even thru Fender and it never sounded like a bluez guitar. It sounds like him and slacker rock. Good point about thinner picks etc. I can give it another try with my new amp maybe.

    I think it's funny you love Kurt's tone, but don't like using distortion. Seriously, watch the used bin at GC or a local Music Go Round, grab a DS-1 for like $25, and get your mind blown by how much it sounds like In Utero through your Twin.

    Okie dokie! Yea I'll do it. It's because I like most being able to hear all the intricacies of my guitar and amp and every box I've ever tried kills that. Also because I'm not in a band situation in a jam room, instead just tinkering around in my room and don't feel like blowing the roof off the place.

    Some more epic clean tone for you peeps. It's a hot rails bridge. Listen to that gain!
