Imagine the part of the ballsack where occasionally old poo sticks to the pubes and hardens, and you then have to pull out, but as an amp. That's an MG.


Greatest quote of all time?

I think so...

No pedals. And no, they didnt use JCM800's. Was something else, can't recall.

Was always fat strats with DiMarzio superdistortions in bridge.

They certainly did use pedals.


I think they were using Marshall MKII's back then for amps and definitely for pedals Dave was using
MXR Distortion +

MXR Phase 90

Dod flanger 575

Cry Baby Wah

Yamaha AD-10

Boss FA-1 preamp

MXR 10 Band EQ




EDIT: Forgot to mention the pedal list is from the guy that built Dave's pedal board in '82 (Pete Cornish).

From a 1983 interview on Guitar world, Adrian said he used a boss chorus, a micro amp, a tube screamer, and a flanger (any model would do, I guess). Dave said he used a cry baby, MXR distortion plus, Phase 90, and an FET power booster. He also mentioned a graphic EQ, but didn't mention the model.

Adrian's pups(H-S-S for strats OR H-H for an ibanez destroyer/LP/SG) Super D-stock-stock OR Super D-stock.
Dave's pups-HSH(the strat): Super D-stock-dimarzio Paf 36th. HH (LP) would be just the Super D and PAF 36th.

No idea on heads. Definantly MArshalls, but not sure on the models. Most likely the Master volume series. and of course, 2 1960 cabs per guitarist, with celestions (dave said he had EV's in one, celestions in the other)

Again, it's all 1983 gear. Modern stuff is easier to look up
Charvel So-Cal (SH6TB/N). Joyo pxl pro.
Loop1=Crybaby from hell, Seymour Duncan 805 or Green Rhino, EQD Hoof. Loop 1 into ISP decimator II.
Loop 2 (FX loop)-Line6 M9. Loop 2 into mxr 10band. All into a Peavey Triple XXX 212, Ibanez IL15.

But now that I think of it, you could leave out the phase 90 and flanger; I don't hear them all that much, at least from the first 3 bruce albums.

Thanks everyone! I feel kind of bad. I been a metalhead all my life. (im 22) And i would always tell my friend who was a hard maiden fan that maiden blew ass and how much i hated them.

Bout 2 weeks ago at best buy i was look and saw maiden. And number of the beast god stuck in my head. Gave it a listen all the way through. And gave it another go and i repeated this more times than i can count

Wow, HOW THE HELL did i ever dis this ban. I cannot believe how amazed i was. i wanted more so i bought some more of their albums listened to them all 10 times through. These guys are fukn amazing. I feel like a bandwagoner now but jesus how the heck could i ever dis these guys

EDIT: Why is Where Eagles Dare not a single. Song is flipping epic!

Also RIP Clive Burr

At the risk of turning this into a Maiden fanboy thread...make sure you pick up powerslave, that was always my favorite album by them. Much more of a fan of their older stuff, I have all the albums up to Fear of the Dark and I don't reall even like some of them in that area, the first 5 though leading up to live after death though.....absolutely

Both Bruce and Adrian rejoined the band in 1999, and the ablums since then have all been great, Brave new world and dance of death are must buys!

I like the two Blaze albums, I kinda feel without them some of the later stuff wouldn't be in existence, especially AMOLAD.

But anyway, didn't they change from Marshall to a different company for Somewhere In Time (not essentially sure, but I think they were Solid State amps, but I might be wrong!)

I would'nt buy gear to specifically try and sound like maiden, if thats what your aiming for (strat) the amp is the important part, guitar wise and gear wise i've also seen adrian using a line 6 pod, and theres some guitar tutorial vids were adrian uses hes sunburst fat strat (as seen on the brave new world tour) and he also uses a stock set up squier telecaster.

For someone who could afford any guitar and has many high end ones to use a stock squier telecaster kinda speaks for its self.
