Ive been listening to the black keys a lot lately and was wondering if anyone can tell me their setup. I want to know guitars / amps / pedals. I just cant seem to imitate their sound and was wondering if anyone could help.
Dan uses mostly Gibsons and copies for his guitars, but he also throws a Tele and a Strat in there once in a while. I've seen videos of him using a bunch of different amps like a small, Blues Jr.- looking combo to what looked like a Plexi full stack... Anyway, I'd guess that the majority of his tone comes from whatever fuzz he uses.
A lot of the idiosyncrasy of their sound has to do with the absence of a bass player.
