Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

San­tana has used sev­eral main­stay gui­tars over the years in­clud­ing Gibson SG Spe­cial, Les Paul and L6-S. In the late 70s he moved to Yamaha’s SG model but even­tu­ally set­tled with PRS, who now make sev­eral mod­els bear­ing his name. Car­los ini­tially used Am­peg and Fen­der amps but then met Randall Smith from Mesa Boo­gie and be­came a life-long fan. How­ever he is some­times seen play­ing a Blu­do­tone and a Dum­ble Over­drive Re­verb in his set-up. We’re aim­ing for a hum­bucker sound with a mod­er­ate to high level of over­drive - with re­verb to taste.
