Hendrix had an amazing sparkling clean tone that people often don't mention.
Any ideas what he did for that... cranked up amp with a backed off guitar or the amp backed off?

Or (shock) was it even a Marshall on all the recordings!?? eek?
Yup your translation is hilarious

And on the Hendrix clean tone, that nice sparkling clean is a Marshall yes, and it ain't real hard listen to this:


Yes I know it isn't as sparkling and as clean as hendrix but the guiy sent me some settings (for the VM) to get it more sparkling, and cleaner. But ofcource my 69' pickups make it sound more Hendrixy/cleaner too.

Re: Tone lesson: The key to a 'Hendrix' tone

Yes it always gets me that some amps give a more full clean tone if it is cranked in volume to distort and then backed off on the guitar to clean up.
My 1987x/2204 does this.

However, my 2061x is better clean if if you turn the dials down and get a clean tone from the amp. Much more of that Hey Joe 'sparkling' Marshall sound.

It was kind of unusual to hear Buddy Miles sing that!

Re: Tone lesson: The key to a 'Hendrix' tone

By the way, what was the whole point of this thread? Were you giving a lesson on how to achieve the Hendrix Tone? Because if you were, you forgot something the man himself! The hands, the fingers and most of all the talent.

You had some interesting gear choices too. Were you talking his live tone or studio tone?
The early Hendrix amps were anything from old Bassmanís to Sound City. The early Marshallís were KT66 100 watters. You are forgetting the Roger Mayer Octavia, the Univibe. Jimi tended to use shitty coiled cables live for some reason. But in the studio he would use a shirt 4 ft. cable (thatís per Eddie Kramer). Jimi use Fender Rock & Roll 150ís 10-46 pure nickel, so I am with you on that part. The 69í custom shop pickups are ok. The biggest thing is none of us are Jimi Hendrix and you or I or anyone else will ever nail it!

Not it isn't a real lesson, it's just trying to find out how to get as close as possible to Hendrix. By calling it a lesson and forgetting to mention some things people will reply and say things I allready knew and thigs I didn't knew like the Fuzz is allways on during recording sessions. I can use those things to learn from to make my attempt to a hendrix tone for my CD.

On the amps you are right, but 95% of the amps he used were Marshalls. That's why my amp of choise is the VM, wich uses KT66's too just like the early Marshalls. I knew Jimi used coily cables, but I didn't knew they were such a low quality, thanks.

Re: Tone lesson: The key to a 'Hendrix' tone

I love Hendrix. I don't want my own music to sound like Hendrix or anyone else unless I had to do a cover. But regardless, I sill think this kind of info is extremely useful.

I agree that in the end anyone who would want to sound EXACTLY like someone else would need to have the gear, the hands, the brain and the soul of that person.

+1, as Kurt Cobain said: "Wanting to be someone else is a waste of your own person."

Still it's cool to make a tribute to Hendrix CD, but I play my own solos, not Hendrix's.

And it's good to know where famous/good guitarists get their tones from, to learn how to make your own tone.
