Hey, I recently got a Zoom G2.1U multi effects pedal and I was wondering if anyone knows how to get a sound that's similar to the classic Zakk Wylde sound.
If anyone can help, it'd be great

emgs :P
erm just get some high gain gritty distortion

Lol yeah, and maybe a little chorus/RotoVibe type of effect for leads. Less mids on rhythm, crank the mids on the lead sounds. That should be a start.
Loads of distortion, pure alternate picking, pentatonic scales, active pickups, Les Paul guitar and Marshall fullstacks.
Pinch harmonics.

That's how you get his sound.
His tone come from his OD Pedal, the sig one, mainly.

What he does is, run's the marshall at a mid/lower gain sound, and uses the OD for the in your face sound he gets.

Sounds amazing live xD

PCSpeaker is right,

Damn right I am.

Bugera 333xl > Crybaby Wah > Marshall Guv'Nor > Boss SD1 > J&D Les Paul / Vintage Lemon Drop / Modded HSH Squier / Vintage Warp / Standard Squier Strat /Tanglewood Acoustic!
Zakk doesnt really use distortion, He uses Overdrive he has his Marshall gain Cranked and he uses a Overdrive pedal to push it farther for his different tone
Atleast thats what i had to do when i tested out a JCM 800 with his pedal
Gibson 1972 SG Pro T-Top Bridge, P90 Neck
Jackson JS30RR EMGs 85-81
Epiphone G-400 Goth
76 Mann Les Paul Custom
Fender f-230 Accoustic
Randall RG-180 DX
Line6 Spider III HD75 Head - Behringer 412
Saving for a Marshall JCM 800.
