Hey UG,
I came across this Red house version by Malmsteen.. I'm not really much of a Malmsteen fan since I am a pentatonic/blues scale freak and I got to say this Red House blew me away when I saw it because the solos were predominately pentatonic and incredibly unique sounding. Some of the licks he does I haven't heard before. Anyway to the point, I was wondering if someone could tell me how he got that tone in this video apart from the Marshalls? Is he using something like a tubescreamer but with more gain?

The best blues I've ever seen from Malmsteen.

But he doesn't leave any space.


And it's not that high gain. Probably just a tubescreamer or something.

^ yeh.. but it sounds like it is high gain but remains clear and tuberscreamer like..

PS: I don't think it matters that he didn't leave any gaps in his playing. Everything fitted really well

I think he uses a DOD pedal of some sort, but a tubescreamer wil get you there as well. That's one of his best performances in "blues mode."

The main things that get him his tone are his strats and his marshall plexis.
