What Strings Do You Use? ZAKK WYLDE

We ask a great gui­tarist all those lit­tle ques­tions you re­ally do want the an­swers to… This month: six-string rock leg­end, Zakk Wylde

Guitar Techniques - - Intro -

GT: Do you have a type of pick that you can’t live with­out?

ZW: Dun­lop Ul­tex Picks, Su­per Heavy

GT: If you had to give up all your ped­als but three, what would they be?

ZW: Black La­bel Cho­rus, Zakk Wylde Over­drive and Zakk Wylde wah pedal - all made by Dun­lop.

GT: Do you play an­other mu­si­cal in­stru­ment well enough to do so in a band?

ZW: Bass, piano and key­boards - I’ve jammed with people, but not as a band.

GT: If a mu­sic chart were put in front of you, could you read it?

ZW: Yes.

GT: Do gui­tar ca­bles re­ally make a dif­fer­ence? What make are yours?

ZW: Yes, good ca­bles make a dif­fer­ence - I use Monster.

GT: Is there any­one’s play­ing (past or present) that you’re slightly jeal­ous of?

ZW: Yes, there are many gui­tar play­ers I get jeal­ous of - es­pe­cially if they have a nicer sock collection than me!

Yes, good ca­bles do in­deed make a big dif­fer­ence to your gui­tar sound. I use Monster ca­bles.

GT: Your house or stu­dio is burn­ing down: which gui­tar do you sal­vage?

ZW: The Grail and the Rebel.

GT: What’s your favourite amp and how do you set it?

ZW: Mar­shall Zakk Wylde 2203, 100-watt sig­na­ture amp - I set it on low heat for 45 min­utes so my socks come out per­fectly fluffy and warm for my foot­sies.

GT: What kind of ac­tion do you have on your gui­tars?

ZW: I set the ac­tion very low; al­though I can still play slide on the gui­tar.

GT: What strings do you use?

Dun­lop Zakk Wylde Icon Se­ries sig­na­ture strings.

GT: And what are you up to at the mo­ment?

ZW: Black La­bel So­ci­ety’s new al­bum, Cat­a­combs Of The Black Vat­i­can, is re­leased by Mas­cot Records on Mon­day April 7th. Fur­ther info at http://black­la­bel­so­ci­ety.com
