Get the Tone
Angus uses a Gibson SG based on his own 1968 model, into a Marshall 100-watt stack. Malcolm prefers a Gretsch based on his 1963 Jet Firebird, also into a 100-watt Marshall. The brothers’ tones are quite different; Malcolm’s having a little more top end while Angus’s is thicker, with more gain. You’ll need plenty of natural rock drive for both sounds, so why not set your lead sound (not too much distortion – this is rock, not metal!) and turn the guitar’s volume down for rhythm.
