interested in how he got this tone, namely the strumming part... just wondering what of his army of gear he's using here

Gibson Les Paul, cranked Marshall Plexi, and a whole lotta mojo. Same secret to the tones before Dicky Betts and 60's Eric Clapton. It's just a magic combo.

Are you sure that's not a tele and a supro?


I'm not a really big Zep buff though.

In the studio, he used both He played a few shows with the Tele live, but he used a Marshall for those gigs, and switched pretty quick to the LP.

I used to fudge it by picking as close to the bridge as possible

The muted notes don't have that humbuckerish muffled to them. So I think that guy^^ is more accurate.

Sound is british like an old marshall.

If you have a humbucker guitar it would explain u trying to get that thinner muffle.

i'd say tele into (vintage-style) fuzz (probably with volume control rolled back a lot on the guitar) then with a vintage-style tube amp. should get you pretty close.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

As someone else said, it was recorded with a Tele through a Supro. Looking at some of their performances, he used a Les Paul and Marshall Plexi live. The only time that I can find when he didn't use a Les Paul/Marshall combination was when they played on Danmarks Radio in 1969.

Yes for the Led Zeppelin I album he used a Telecaster and Supro amp. Any telecaster style/humbuker guitar into a small overdriven tube amp will get you into the ballpark. Possibly a vintage fuzz style pedal with a "sagged" tone.

In the late 60s and early 70s Jimmy actually played a Gibson into a modified Hiwatt amp, not a Marshall. He used this setup at the Royal Albert Hall gig.

I didn't know that - do you know what model Hiwatt it was?

It was just a modified Custom Hiwatt 100. The schematic can be found online by a quick google search.

Edit: Catalinbread created the RAH to replicate this tone.
