The problem is, you need a fecktonne of gain to compensate for not being able to use the sheer volume he would have used whilst in the studio.^ That's pretty much it.
A lot of the time, people use way too much gain when trying to get Vai's tone. His tone from the era is primarily just the sound of really cranked, modded Marshall JCM800s (and a few other amps, like Carvin X100B, etc...).
cranked 100W tube amp such as a Carvin X100, Marshall JCM900 or similar.Hey guys, can anyone tell me how to get the guitar tone on the audience is listning?
Didn't exist yet, most likely he was using an EMB Audio remote wah.Also is the wah hes using a modified horsie, if not what is it?
