    Default Guitar Tone And Its Many Variations

    Tone Tone Tone! It's all about tone. Decided to make a list of some of my work.

    It's one of my hobbies in my free time.

    I use a variety of ways, but first thing I do is study, study, study. Internet to the rescue.
    What gear did they use? Then try to emulate things with physical gear and/or DAW plugins.

    As always, studio "magic" is a huge piece of the puzzle.

    Here's some of my work; not all are "100 %", and some have patchwork backing tracks (some have real):



    Iron Maiden:


    DIO Sabbath:


    VH1:


    VH1:


    Boston:


    1984 VH:


    Sykes Whitesnake:


    Badlands:


    Early Rush:


    Moving Pictures Rush:


    Early Sabbath:


    Mindcrime Queensryche:


    RATT:


    Early Journey:


    TNT:


    Early Def Leppard:


    Rhoads Ozzy:

    Those are all really great. Nice work.

    The first VH is even more spot on Warren Demartini than EVH IMO.

    The other 2 VH are EVH all the way


    So -who's tone is requires the most work to dial?

    Thanks - the most difficult (figuring out-wise) were:

    EVH 1st album (lots of studio magic esp. verb going on)
    Alex Lifeson Moving Pictures (2 amps - Marshall Club & Country + HIWATT DR103; Roland CE-1)
    Sykes Whitesnake (Mesa Boogies in stereo w/ Lexicon PCM42, quad [yes, quad] tracked)

    I have yet to really nail Ritchie Blackmore's studio tone(s). That's a tough mofo, believe it or not.

    Sounds pretty good on some of those (the NIB one sound bang on to me)!
