Fury - Whammy up or Whammy down??

Like the title says, octave up sounds a bit better and easier to control, but octave down sounds better in the verses. Anybody have any thoughts on how Matt plays live vs recorded??

Octave down in verses, octave up in the chorus. I think he did that in the Abso tour. Not sure about later performances, but that's the way I like to do it.

I use one octave up for the intro etc then normal pitch for the verses and chorus.

Just listened to it again and it sounds like he's using the +1/-1 harmonizer

I thought harmony at first but I think that only works in verses.

I have a cover of Fury doing octave up/down and I think it sounded ok.

I'd post it but it got blocked and I don't feel like signing in to get the link.

Octave harmony mode. Down in verses, up in choruses. Live he doesn't rock it back and forth so much like on studio in the intro/solo, like it's mostly on +1, 'sweeping' up at the beginning of each note

Definitely octave harmony, that's how you get the pulse/sweep effect on the main riff (well, that and some delay obvs). Like other people have said, harmony -1 (pedal down) for the verses/middle and outro riff and +1 (pedal up) during the chorus.

Don't remember there being any guitar in the verses, only distorted bass using octave pedals. Not listened to the song in a long time though.

Sounds like harmony at the start. The sustainer is might be doing its harmony thing (a fifth up?) as well as the whammy there
