    Hey,

    I was just wondering what drives/boosts you guys were using to cop some Mike Campbell tones?

    For me, I'm using a BJF RRB and EGD with a tele and a Tophat CR 2x12.

    I like the SilverKiss by Catalinbread. I have a Mark I.
    I think Mike uses a RAT from time to time and perhaps some type of fuzz pedal (probably vintage), but I'd say work on getting the most out of your amp first.

    Ah, you got me :eek:


    I've read places that Tom Petty used the Red Llama, but I didn't know Mike Campbell used one. I've also heard that he used a rat (probably a vintage one). I guess there should be a disclaimer and ask as a general Tom Petty and the Heatbreakers tone in a box.

    I suppose playing into a Vox-y or tweed-y (blonde tolex maybe?) amp set for a touch of hair and using a drive/boost with a tele or p-90...gretsch or ric...and you're nearly there?

    I use an EGDM usually sometimes boosted by my direct drive.


    EGDM is just amazing.
