Ever heard Randy Rhoads' tone on Crazy Train? Kinda sounds like his wah is on all the time on that too. Nobody complains about that though.

Leave the man be. So it's a little muddy. So is Metallica and they've got "legendary tone."

This is UG, we love Schecters and Ibanez and Jacksons, we hate Deans and BCR's, we hate Marshall MG's, and everyone needs a new amp.

I can't say about Zakk Wylde, but I know some guitarists do leave their wah on, like in a middle position. I believe it helps to boost mids (not sure though).

He's endorsed by Jackson, uses DiMarzio pickups, and uses Mesa Boogie amps exclusively. No overdrive pedals either. J

His tone definitely isnt comprised of Les Pauls with EMGs and JCM 800's because thats totally not how you get Zakk's tone...

Yeah, basically don't use that, his signature strings, his signature wah, his signature overdrive, and don't grow a beard.

... Or maybe he gets his tone by using all of the stuff he does... WOAH I NEVER THOUGHT OF IT LIKE THAT!!!

#20
if i can, i would like to ask a legit question, so my band wants to cover porn star dancing and guess who gets the solo? me (they act like i'm good at guitar or some shit like that)
now i know he uses a marshal and a wah but i have a line 6 and i'm sure i can get his tone out of it, so can any one give me his amp settings? i would apprecate it

look people are saying STFU because you started a thread asking why someone sucks, he doesnt suck you dont like him.
If you want an answer phrase your question differently, something along the lines of 'how does Zakk Wylde get his tone?'
#24
On the albums he sounds pretty good. Live his tone is ass, i saw him a few weeks ago and was really disappointed. He went into this 8 minute long ear piercing solo that was, no joke, him running up and down a pentatonic at the 12th fret. It was terrible.

As for the question, use a lot of treble and cut the mids way back, a bit of bass, and use an extra gain pedal as well as a wah set about 3/4 of the way on. Works for me
