Any dirt/fuzz box capable of Keith Richards' lead tones in Gimme Shelter, the studio version??
Les Paul Custom, cranked Ampeg, Mick Taylor's fingers...
Menatone's Foxy Brown is supposed to get Keef's sound
Great tone. And the hackster is right.
i've heard zvex box of rock get close believe it or not.
+1 on foxey brown, plus guitar tone pot rolled down.
Mick Taylor's not on Gimme Shelter...
I stand corrected. He joined the band in time to appear on Let It Bleed but apparently only played on "Country Honk" and "Live With Me"...
I was fooled by the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mqg1WVVmgx0
I think that it's Keith playing a Les Paul through a Fender Twin reverb really focking loud.
Questions like these are kind of silly because besides the guitar and amp, you are also hearing (in order of importance) the player, the microphone, the room, the mic pre or console, the compressor, and whatever EQ was applied during tracking, mixing or mastering.
Just go play it on Rock Band...
I just watched Rock and Roll Circus and half way through Sympathy for the Devil his lead tone changes drastically(gets that Mick Taylor sound)and there's only one amp on Keith's side of the stage.
Correction.There are two amps(Vox and Ampeg?).The tone change happens when he reachs back and cranks the lower left control on the Ampeg.
How long do you suppose Keef would last on TGP before fouling out?
is there a subtle tremolo on the intro part? i've always dug that tune....
I agree. One of my favorite Intros of all time.
I believe Gimme Shelter was the Stones anti Vietnam tune.
I asked because we're playing this and I'm just interested in copping that fuzziness as closely as possible with my guitars and hoped tat there migt be a specific Keef pedal, like the EH Double MUff was supposed to be. I know I should say screw it and get a 70s Ampeg VT40 or VT22. Been down that road before and my ears still hurt! Any other suggestions?
The entire song has a cool, compressed sound that I don't think can really be recreated in today's studios.
I get a killer Keith-esque tone with my NoCaster in Open G through my ragged, beat to death Peavey Classic 50 on the drive channel.
Also get a decent Keith Urban tone with that set up.
