Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: British R&b -

In the early years, Brian and Keith used Vox AC30 amps. By the mid-60s they'd switched to Fen­der Twins and Dual Show­mans with more power and vol­ume to cope with big­ger venues. None of these amps had mas­ter-vol­ume con­trols; they were sim­ply cranked up loud with lots of top end. When the power-amp tubes are driven hard in this way a big, three-di­men­sional sound can be achieved. So se­lect your bridge pickup (or both to­gether) and turn your amp’s tre­ble up all the way.
