I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE that tone Adrian Smith got for Somewhere in time/Seventh son era. He used the GK 250ML, which I'm fortunate to have one, and it sound dead on like his tone! Alex Lifeson used them during the Grace under pressure era as well.Friends,
I know its a love/hate thing with Eddie's post-1984 tone choices. I like them all. For me they are a place in time not just a sound.
I love especially in its latter form - Balance and ADKOT.
Anyone going for that stereo detune effect Ed got so enamored with 5150 and beyond?
How do you achieve it?
I'm sure there's more than one way down the rabbit hole, but I do play in a simple stereo rig both live (FM3) and when recording (AF3). No, I'm not in a VH tribute, but it is a great sound and not entirely apart from Adrian Smith's Somewhere / 7th son era which I do cop in my Maiden Tribute, Aces High.
