Zakk has the iconic tone and i want it? Any info or suggestions would be wonderful.
Here's his official gear list. I remember him having a Boss DS-1 or somthing like that not too long ago......
Zakk Wylde's Official Gear
cool site. but i think he uses some sort of flanger and delay also.
Dunlop Zakk Wylde signature crybaby
MXR Evh phase 90
MXR Zakk Wylde overdrive
Boss CE 5 chorus ensamble (or MXR stereo chorus)
Thats pretty much what he uses. The MXR ZW-44 is similar to the SD-1 but less harsh and less noisy.
He runs it all into a modded JCM800 2203 (I think) he doesnt use them JCM800 2203ZW stacks you see onstage
EDIT: Zakks agressive picking and active pickups will really contribute to his tone.
I got close to his tone with my JCM900 by cranking the gain and volume on the clean channel, then adding a SD-1 infront with the level dimed and the gain about 8 o clock, using a Les Paul with the ZW pickup set.
You can get close but you'll never nail his tone. The icing on the cake when it comes to tone is in the fingers.
Heres a video of Zakk using the exact gear you just described
