Get The Tone
Dickinson’s live setup is simplicity itself, favouring electrics such as a Gibson LP or ES-335 into a Fuchs valve combo turned up loud for overdrive and controlled by the guitar’s volume. But there’s always a quality overdrive pedal on hand for moments of gain madness. We’re after a full bodied driven tone and don’t forget to explore your guitar’s pickup and volume controls. Luther employs a fingerstyle technique, combining thumb, first and second fingers almost all the time and pretty much exclusively when using a slide.
