Tone on Whitesnakes Still of the night - what amp, effects..


Well, the topic title says it all.

What does the guitarist (I haven't got a clue who he is) use?

I'm reffering to the main riff, I think it has a real fat sound, cool

It's John Sykes, he used his old trusty Les Paul Custom through a Boogie, I think it was a Mark II or a Colesium (basically a 180W Mark II) through Marshall cabs. *Not 100% sure, there was an article in a recent Guitar Player about that tone. *I'll look it up when I get home.

Wasn't Sykes an EMG guy? For some reason that rings a bell...

Nope, Gibson Dirty Fingers pups, at least in those days. *Zakk is an EMG/LP guy.

assuming you don't keep a LP and a boogie in your closet, i would recommend a compressor pedal and the gain in your amp in 10.

I can't find the article about John's sound on that song but volume is also a main component, and yeah, I have a Boogie and a LP Custom, you gotta move some air. *

I have an article in a mag somewhere in my room on what his lead is and what gear he is using. He's using his Les Paul into a Collosium. Then for his clean sound he used a Fender Strat into I think a Fender Twin or something really cleany-goodness

Monster song, monster guitarist, monster album.

Everyone has the setup pretty much spot on, the clean section is indeed a Strat, but its direct to the mixing desk and not through any amp.

Check out Sykes' new mterial too, it also moves major booty.

FWIW, he also used a Charvel "strat" with a bridge HB and a OFR for the dive bombs at the beginning of the solo. *

He didn't leave, Coverdale fired the whole band before the disc was finished. *He actually came in to do the solo to that song after he was fired. *He wanted to wrap the whole thing up. *Bummer, that was a killer band, but Coverdale wanted to create the next "Super Group", I think that backfired on him, Sykes was the man for Whitesnake.
