He said 'recovering', not 'recovered'.

That Woodstock movie, Pete Townshend in I can see for miles and miles, when they go to the instrumental bit at the end he's belting out the chords on a Gibson SG special with P90s through cranked Hiwatt stacks. Un-fucking-believably good tone.

Really love the tone Angus got on the solo for Back In Black (song), a lot of it in the fingers though eh
Hendrix's tone on Born Under a Bad Sign cover is delicious.
All EVH's Marshall era stuff.
But I'm a Marshall fan boy. Raw and raspy with balls!.. Raw, raspy balls.

The title of this video says 'recovered', but maybe it's a misquote.

Great band that.
Pity they left the clip-on tuners on during the video... :o
Nothing to see here.

Not a famous track at all. But one I love for the lead tone.

Beautiful LP through a mix of vintage and modern Marshall’s.

Yes, yes. I produced and co-mixed it. But hey...

Andy Timmons definitely deserves an honorable mention. He’s held in high regard for his tone and rightly so; his clean tone is killer. Found out that he uses a very small amount of reverb and two delays running into each other. He used to run two Memory Man’s (?) into each other, however a trusty Strymon Timeline handles that now :)

If you’re new to AT have a listen to his ‘Theme from a Perfect World’ album

Cliche, I know, but Clapton on the Beano album. But who will ever get to crank a Marshall 1962 without tinnitus or the coppers being called?

Most shit U2 ever did - not lead tones but cool creative shit. Andy Summers, less the 80's records but certainly newer live stuff. Live Eagles gets me going too.

100% man. One of the first things I noticed when I found out about him years ago. Looked it up, Boogie Lonestars or sometimes Stilettos!

Do people actually make money from YouTube? The ones without tens of millions of views per video I mean.
