    Valhall did a new shooting from two different Voxamps, which inspired me diving deeper into Brian May´s Sounds. In a few old videos he showed his harmony delay technic. this is easy to do with the axe, original Brian used 3 different amps for this. The secret is a delay with one repeat and a second with two repeats (400 msec and 800msec or 1/4 and 1/2).

    I used the ´62 U87 Raw Single IR, which comes very close to the original sound - the SE 4400 IRs sound also great from this pack.

    I played with my G&L Strat with the split humbucker/Middle PU Position, Scene 4 is a Monodelay for two-voice-harmony, Scene 5 for the 3-voice harmony.

    Preset works on Axe II.

    That old video he made is wild, such a huge star but they had the worst production possible

    Fun and entertaining to watch though

    It seems to me that there´s was more time to show the secrets than today. The funniest thing is when Brian always had to switch to stand by ("klick") his Vox as he started to explain what he played - to much ambient noise from the amp, which he had to hide.
