So I'm playing different distortions and looking for that dirty aerosmith-1796 type of ovderdrive that you hear on "Lick And A Promise" and "last child". Does anyone know what kind of gear they were using back then?

I also like the kind of distortion Skid row had on Slave to the Grind, they had BADASS tone.

For the most part I play marshalls or Crate with BC Rich or Dean, but I'm open to trying anything.

I just want the ballsiest, most versatile dirty ass raunchy tone I can get. That's not asking too much is it?

so far the Grunge pedal has been pretty sweet as far as versatility, and the Boss Super Overdrive is nice too. Next time I go to the shop Im gonna try out the EVH stuff.

That sounds like the classic Les Paul + Marshall (not the AVT or MG series) sound to me.

Yeah, or the more politically correct Mahogany Guitar with Humbuckers and A British Valve amp tone.

^ I didn;t know political correctness existed when referring to gear?

I also didn't know that politcal correctness existed on the internet

well, joe perry actually used a strat alot back then. (i think you can tell on walk this way)
but yeah, "aerosmith tone" is pretty much just classic guitars and amps. if you want skid row and that maye look at a peavey windsor or jcm800 or something??

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

I say that because of the modern states of Gibson and Marshall... The Marshall reissues of all the amps they woulda used back then are overpriced and inferior to things like Orange, and the state of play is the same with Gibson and their Japanese copies like Tokai.
