Well Gary uses Handwired Marshalls, but im guessing they may not be what your after, however he also uses a Marshall Govner pedal, which is quite cheap and may help.

Edit: Also don't forget the neck pickup in his Les Paul for these recordings had somehow had its poles reversed, creating a unique sound.

I cant however comment on your suggestion of amp, as I have never used one of those ones before.

I believe he uses Soldanos and Cornfords too nowadays. I think the base of his tone is a plexi (or something similar) pushed to 10, then boosted with a pedal or two. While the VC 30 is a great amp, it doesn't sound anywhere near fat enough to sund like him. The best way to sound like him on a budget is to pick up a Laney AOR pro tube head or combo off ebay. They're very cheap, yet do the JCM800 thing extremely well.

I'd assume you'd need to turn it up pretty loud too to get the natural overdrive sound

Yeah I heard Gary on the radio saying how he tests his amps volume, and apparently he stands next to them, plays a powerchord, and if it doesnt make his trousers flap, its not loud enough

But is trouser flapping even possible

I think you could do it with a VC30, but you'll need a Marshall Guv'nor to really kick that tone and beef it up (it has a deep control to make it fatter). They're only about £40/$50 or something like that.

well i got a zw44 MXR pedal with lots of gain on tap. Why is it so fam awkward for me, i was looking at the bugera 333xl, but then i think its not smooth enough and to "metal". I need an amp which can do metal like megadeth and metallica well, but also need smooth lushess eric johnson and gary moore type tones, and some decent clean and blues tones. Im just so stuck i really dont know

The bugera can do it. Just reduce the gain a little bit.
I use a high gain tone for playing that stuff. Sounds really nice.

So the bugera should do it well.

I reckon the VC30 could do it quite well with an overdrive/EQ to fatten it up.

Hi Guys,
I use a Les Paul Standard (Gibbo) of course thourgh a 1962 Marshall Bluesbreaker works for me
#14
what about the vc50 is that different sounding to the vc30? Has it got more gain? More similar to the gh50? And i really dont know about the bugera do a sound clip of it doing gary moore and i might believe you

i think with someone like moor, the majority of the tone is from the fingers, you'd be suprised.

The magnet is flipped in the neck pickup, so it is out of phase in the middle position.


or you could swap the signal and earth wires instead of dismantling a HB

the VC50 has tons more gain and much better voicing than the 30. theyre real different amps

im no metal expert but i'd say the VC50 would do for most metal endevours
