Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: HARD ROCK -

The EVH sound was orig­i­nally achieved with the Franken­strat, made up of var­i­ous com­po­nents in­clud­ing Charvel neck, Boo­gie body, sin­gle Gib­son PAF hum­bucker, and Floyd Rose vi­brato. When plugged into a 1967-68 100 watt Mar­shall 'plexi' this cre­ated the 'brown sound': cut­ting but warm with more sat­u­ra­tion and gain. EVH’s gui­tars tend to be tuned to Eb, but our ex­am­ples are in stan­dard tun­ing. Go high on master vol­ume and bal­ance with front-end gain. Add a flanger if you have one and some light slap-back echo.
