If this is the wrong forum, please tell me and I'll delete it. In the song Crushing Day (Satriani, Surfing with the Alien) does anyone know what the rhythm guitar's setup is? (Amp/Guitar/FX). I'm talking about the guitar that plays

most likely its something to do with Marshalls and/or a Boss DS1


Peavy. Satch uses Peavy.

Also, threadstarter, it's an excellent song. Although, it's the one song that Satch himself hates. Bit of Satch knowledge there for you.

Nice to see another Satch fan.

No...Satriani used Marshall JCM800 heads with 1960B cabs (with Celestion Greenbacks) on the album "Surfing With The Alien". Just because someone endorses a product now doesn't mean that they've always used that product.

As far as settings, it seems like that classic PAF Pro sound with some distortion with scooped mids.

He triple tracks the rhythm guitar. I know he also uses a special mic technique, but he didn't ever say which one that I can remember.

He uses Ibanez JS series solidbodies with DiMarzio Fred and PAF pickups on the bridge and neck, respectively. He also uses the D'addario 0.009-0.042 set of strings. His typical set-up is as follows: Guitar, Dunlop Crybaby Wah, 2 Boss DS-1's, Fulltone ultimate octave, digitech whammy, Boss PS-5 Super Shifter, Boss BF-2 Flanger, Boss CH-1 Chorus, 2 Boss DD-3 Digital Delays. His rack is typically a Digitech DSP256 Multi Effects Processor, an intelligent pitch shifter, and two chandler stereo delays. Usually for his amp he uses a Marshall 30th anniversary edition head. Recently, though, he has been using the JSX model instead. Hope that helps.

I may be wrong, but I think it boosts the input gain (note: not to be confused with "distortion"). Stevie Ray Vaughan used this "stacking" method with two TS-808's to give him a boost for a more punchy sound.

Thats funny because its one of my favourite Satch soungs. In his Essential album he wrote that this was one of the only solos he ever worked out if not the only (can't remember). All his solos are usually improvised in the studio but this he created outside the studio.
A bit more Satch knowledge there for you.
