Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: HARD ROCK -

The Maiden sound is Strat and Mar­shall. Dave and Jan­ick use a va­ri­ety of Fend­ers, while Adrian favours his Jack­son. All three have hum­buck­ers at the bridge for a fat, riff­ing tone. You'll get close to the sound with any hum­buck­ing guitar, but if you have sin­gle-coils you can fat­ten it with more gain, bass and mid. Amp-wise it's ei­ther Mar­shall 100w JCM2000 heads or JMP1 preamps. Don’t use too much gain as this can sap the tone and you’ll lose the nat­u­ral body of the guitar sound.
