Riff Of The Month: Tool: Schism
Guitarist Adam Jones is well known for using Gibson Les Pauls. The tone on this riff comes from a bright sounding, treble-rich bridge humbucker with a little drive adding bite. All but the cleanest amps will have enough gain to get you a ballpark tone. The studio recording uses double tracking for a fatter sound – you could try using a chorus or flanger with slow, light settings for a similar effect.
