Get The Tone
We’re after a high- gain rock tone, with tons of reverb and a touch of delay. Frank favours SG-style guitars but his favourite live SG is fitted with three single- coils and a five-way selector, with the bridge pickup on reverse slant like Hendrix. He also plays loud, so you need a guitar that resists feedback when pushed into the red. Frank favours the neck pickup and he’s no valve purist. The Marino rig consists of a bunch of pedals, via a self designed preamp, into the biggest transistor power amp he can find.
