While at­tempt­ing to recre­ate Eric C lap ton’ s leg­endary woman tone, TG’S tu­ition ed­i­tor was pleas­antly sur­prised to dis­cover that neigh­bour­both­er­ing amp lev­els aren’t al­ways re­quired. “Roll off your gui­tar tone, max out your amp tone, ad­just gain and vol­ume to taste and you’ll get sur­pris­ingly close,” says Mr B. Turn to our huge fea­ture on­p46f or more.

In be­tween chat­ting to black peaks’ Joe Gos­ney and re­view­ing Ster­ling’s Valen­tine model, our gear guru has been pon­der­ing his favourite gui­tar tones–billy c or­gan, tom more l lo and Jeff Buck­ley all rank highly, but he’s an ab­so­lute sucker for Alain J oh annes’ s shim­mer­ing clean sand sear­ing oc­tave fuzz on Chris Cor­nell’s Eupho­ri­amorn­ing.


While the city and colour man told us about his new li veal bum(p 82) he also had a favourite tone to share: “Dime­bag Darell’s tone on Far­be­yond­driven, specif­i­cally on Five min­utes alone. Justhow gnarly that is. Pan­tera were al­ways their own thing but dime bag was such a sin­gu­lar player… there’s not re­ally any­one like him.”
