  • Hi this is Eric Johnson here on Music Radar and we're out here on the Jimi Hendrix Experience

  • Tour for 2010. We're at Atlantic City actually, we've been having a great time been out for

  • a 3 week tour we've got a few more dates to do and I just wanted to show you the scene,

  • what we're doing here, what I'm doing. I'm just using one of my EJ strats that's

  • one of the main ones I've been using and it's just stock, a stock guitar of course it doesn't

  • have a back tremolo plate on it, that way I can just go back there and bang on the springs,

  • talk to them and stuff but it's easier to change strings and actually I think it sounds

  • better without that thing on believe it or not, I don't know what that's about. Might

  • be more that neurotic stuff I'm known for, at least I don't stuff banana peels inside

  • it or anything. This is one of the main ones, I'm actually just using a couple of guitars on

  • this tour, I'm using this, I don't know, it's like 3 or 4 years old signature strat and

  • one of the other ones I'm using down here it's another, it's one of the rosewood model

  • ones, kind of the same deal. Rosewood model but I put a super vee tremolo on it because

  • it's a locking tremolo where you don't have to change the stock guitar, there's no need

  • to dig it out or change the screw holes and it stays in tune real well and I think the tone of it is pretty good.

  • I had to use some kind of locking tremolo, I'm doing the songs I'm doing are House Burning

  • Down by Jimi and Burning of the Midnight Lamp as well as Drifting and Are You Experienced?

  • I use this other one, the stock one, but these it's kind of necessary to have some kind of

  • tremolo that would stay in tune, I like the super vee it's pretty cool. I guess it's really

  • between these 2 playing anywhere between 3 and 5 songs a night, sometimes we do this

  • thing with Susan Tedeschi where I come out and do One Rainy Wish which is a lot of fun.

  • The whole tour's been a lot of fun. Hope you get to catch some of it.

  • So anyhow I'm just going to walk you through some of my pedal board stuff, which I'm using now, I've changed

  • a few things but not a lot. This is my main set up there's only very little that's changing

  • for the Hendrix tour, but it's basically like usual where I've managed to put all the

  • pedals on one board and then I've gone back to having a rack behind my amps that has

  • a couple of more things. This really just a master AB switch which either gives me a

  • lead tone or a rhythm tone and the one side of the switch that goes to lead goes to my Cry

  • Baby wah wah and then that goes back behind the amps which goes to a Maestro Echoplex

  • and a BK Butler Tube Driver, the other side is a rhythm and the rhythm goes to a second AB

  • which gives me 2 choices of types of rhythm either a clean rhythm or a dirty rhythm the

  • clean rhythm goes straight to the loop for the Memory Man which is only on occasionally,

  • I'm not using it a whole lot on this tour. It's just a real nice long vibrato coasrey

  • echo but if that loop isn't on, it just bypasses it and goes straight to the DD2 digital delay

  • which then goes into the TC stereo course and that goes back to a pair of twin revurbs.

  • The other side of the rhythm goes to a dirtier rhythm which the first stop on that is to

  • go to another loop which the tube screamer is on a loop and I don't use it all the time,

  • so essentially it's going without going there but I can turn it on if I want and sometimes that

  • loop will switch out with the Octavia for a song like One Rainy Wish or something by

  • Jimi. Other than that it just goes straight to the FuzzFace and then it goes to the Hardlease

  • Toadworks barracuda flanger and that goes behind the amp to an MXR digital delay into

  • the dirty rhythm amp. That's pretty much it so all this stuff on the pedal board comes

  • back to my amp set up which is basically a 3 amp situation. I use 4 amps but there's

  • 3 different sounds being that the clean tone is a stereo sound and the other 2 are mono.

  • So for my lead tone I use a 100 watt or a 50 watt head tonight, probably using a 100

  • watt, just a 69 metal panel Marshall turned on 10 of course because there is no other

  • volume! Then I white chord that and that goes into this bottom cabinet here that's just

  • an old Marshall cabinet that I have wired at 8 ohms because I kind of like 8 ohms for

  • lead. That's pretty much the lead tone, the other sounds are the clean tones which is a couple

  • of twin revurbs in a dual showman reverb head cases and there's 4 lancings JBLs in this bottom

  • cabinet and 1 twin does 2 JBLs, the other twin does the other 2 JBLs and then if I close

  • mic by the time it hits a PA it get's pretty stereo, it doesn't stound as stereo on stage

  • because the speakers are so close together but it kind of works out there. So for my dirty rhythm tone i have this full tone

  • Whip made by Bill Webb guitar technician. It's 100 watt head, real clean Fender-y Marshall-y

  • clean, a lot of big transformer early Hendrix tone and that's what feeds the FuzzFace goes

  • into it and this MXR delay is also what goes into that.

  • So here's an example of a lead tone that I use the Marshall, the '69 Marshall's for, this is with a tube driver.

  • [music]

  • And then I could flip that over to get the other 2 rhythm sounds, which one of them is the lead tone.

  • That's the twin reverse.

  • [music]

  • Alright we'll switch it over to the dirty rhythm sound which is sort of like...

  • [music]

  • I can turn the Fuzz Face on now.

  • [music]

  • That's pretty much, oh I can put the flanger on too.

  • [music]

  • That's pretty much it.
