We all know Hendrix used a Marshall and a cry baby...(i think i know that.) But do any of you guys get a Hendrix sound out of a Fender and another pedal? I'm mainly talking about His blues sound. Any of you experiment with other amps? pedals?
#3
he did actually sometimes use Fender amps too, and i have got a decent hendrix fuzz from fender amps. have heard a half decent sound from a boss sd-1 and a laney 40W.
#4
I'm getting a damn nice 'Red House' tone out of my Roger Mayer fuzz and my Fender Champ.

If you are referring to SS Fender amps: don't bother with those. They're completely different (and crap).

hendrix used every ones wahs, fuzzes, amps, guitars

he didnt use just one he used any. he used a crybaby, a vox wah, a big muff, a fuzz face, fender amps, marshall PLEXIS, gibson v's and firebirds and lespauls, and strats. get over it.

He didn't use a Cry Baby, and he didn't use a Big Muff on any recordings.

I get a pretty much perfect Hendrix sound, Vox wah and a Fuzz Face clone and a Fender Blues Jr.

The main things to get are the Fuzz Face (not Muff, or Dunlop fuzz face) and the Vox wah.

No one did Hendrix better than Stevie Ray Vaughn, and he did it thru a Fender amp.

That's not how things work... the burden of proof lies on you since you made the claim.

Anyways....
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_muff

I don't know the year Dunlop started making wah's but it's a very well known fact that Jimi used a vox wah, and probably never touched a dunlop.

I can get a pretty good Hendrix sound from my Fender Bjr. it's all about the FX more than anything else. Fuzz face, wah, octavia, and some kind of chorus.

^about the big muff

EHX built the big muff
and gave it to hendrix to test it because it was somewhat modeled after his sound
hendrix liked it
but he died too early to use it on any of his recordings (he did use it on demos though)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_muff

about the wah

vox back then was the only wah-making company
thus
hendrix could only have used vox

Dunlop was the American alternate to Vox, exactly the same, they just branded it differently for the US.

Prototypes, yes, but they don't count, because they weren't the same.

Do you have any sources/links to that claim?

Either way... some kind of fuzz pedal, with a wah will give you a nice Hendrix sound.

Nowadays they are, more or less. My V847 was made by Dunlop.
I have no idea about the 'ye olden days', though.

No links, I've just read it in places.

They used to be the same, then changed somewhere down the line.

Yup, just to stop further confusions.

Well, I guess you learn something new everyday.

But I'm sure the Vox casing, with the sweet chrome, and wicked cool VOX logo added some major mojo to his tone that dunlop couldn't possibly re-create
