He made weird rock music that sounded like it was dirty and old. But how can you achieve the Ariel PInk’s sound using guitars and guitar pedals that are available on the market?

The first step to sounding like Ariel Pink’s music is to get a guitar.

This guitar is a Pink squier strat, because of his name, Ariel Pink.

There are many, many amps available on the market. Everything from Orange Amps to Marshall Half Stacks have been used to create killer rock sounds, but which one should you get to sound like Ariel PInk? Because he is a rock artist, any rock-style amp would do the trick. We reccomend the Marshall Half Stack because it’s a classic amp that has a very loud and good tone to it.

This clip from his new “Dedicated to Bobby Jameson” album shows the type of music he makes.

Pedal Machine Music

Pedals have been used by many rock stars to make their music sound different than how it sounded when just the guitar was plugged in. To achieve the Ariel PInk sound that he has on many songs, we reccomend purchasing the DUnlop Crybaby Wah and the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Fuzz. These pedals were also used by Jimi Hendrix, and are staples of contemporary and classic rock n’ roll. Because Ariel PInk’s music is weird, you can also get a weirder pedal such as a Electro Harmonix Small Stone Phaser Pedal, which was used by Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.
