How to get Appetite for Destruction tone, pure slash

If you love appetite for destruction, you've probably tried to get slash' tone on the album at some point. Obviously I don't have his amp, but I think a simple (poor mans) way is to add a wah pedal as a filter, rolled slightly back, to a marshall combo, with your LP tone knobs also rolled slightly back.

Gibson Les Paul Standard - rhythm tone knob rolled back to 7, lead tone knob rolled back to 5
Marshall AVT 20 - gain 8, bass 9, middle 6, treble 6, reverb/depth 3
Dunlop cry baby wah - push fully forward to treble position, then roll slightly back (demonstration in the video)

riffs demonstrated in vid: sweet child, nightrain, paradise city, welcome to the jungle
song demos begin at 0:48, settings explained begin at 4:53

How do you make the Wah stay in a specific position?

Fuck me this actually works

Haha. Are you trying to do magic spells with your right arm during Night Train?

Автор wallieburger ( назад)
so what do you just tape the wah closed lol

Автор JamesR ( назад)
This is kinda ridiculous, but I've found you can use any generic "metal" distortion pedal like a Boss Metal Zone with the distortion on the pedal OFF, as just a sort of overdrive in front of an already distorted amp (preferably Marshall) and it will generate the Slash tone instantly lol.

Excellent info, I use the avt 20 with a les paul, thanks for these

Автор Christopher Husada ( назад)
hey man, i have questions, if i uses both slash alnico 2 pickups in my LP, do i still need to roll neck's tone to 7, and lead's tone to 5?
are these settings for all humbucker pickups or just the one in your video? thx

Автор Dan Anthony ( назад)
slash used a 59 fender bassman on appetite. he rented 5 amps for the album but used the fender . he lied about the 800 jmc juboli. I always knew there was something to his sound that was different then the current sound back then.

Nice! Check out my 'Slash tone on a budget' video on my channel. :)

please help me, I've been trying to achieve slash's tone. here's what I use:

Gibson slash afd + marshall jcm 900 slx (5881 power tube) + marshall cab 1960 (celestion g12t75) - EQ settings currently are: presence 8, bass 7.5, middle 8, treble 6.5, volume 2, sensitivity 6, pre-amp 8.5. (I add a cable in the fx loop for 'boost' effect, all pedals are running front).

Pedals : sc95 slash crybaby -> mxr smart gate -> tu3 tuner -> boss ge-7 -> mxr distortion+ -> boss dd7.

Can anybody tell me are these settings good enough for slash's tone. If not, what's the best settings or should I add an od pedal in front of the amp because I find that mxr distortion+ ruin the slash tone. For now it's best to leave the les paul through marshall recipe.

thx for anyone who wants to reply and help me with this question :)

Very practical idea! This is what I want to learn.

I have an epiphone plustop pro plugged into the avt20 with the wah cocked at the cracking sound and it absolutely nails it

Those Seymour Duncan's slash uses are a big part of his sound you would probably get even closer if you had them

Автор Zachary Mandybur ( назад)
Omg I ordered a used Marshall MG100DFX at guitar center, and it's now delivering to my house, and I've been worried that it would be in bad condition, but since I saw this used one, I'm pretty relieved. And, also, I though I was the only one who does that with the cry baby XD

Man where I have an afd epiphone with the slash pickups would u still turn down the tone knobs a little bit. I have a marshall 100dfx. Also when u find that sweet spot with the wah if I have my tone all the way up it has that wah effect sound but if I turn the tone down it blend with the amp. Do u want it to have a little bit of that wah effect. Or do u want the amp to completely blend with the wah. Because when u solo at the end it seems like u can hear a little bit of that wah effect whick is what slash tone is. Thanks for the vid bro.

Super helpful thanks a lot man!

Try Vintage 30's, Gauge 11 strings, Les Paul with Alnico 2 pickups of any kind, and an all tube amp. That's all you really need in addition to very tiny amounts of delay, reverb, just to make single note playing smooth. I like the idea of the pedal wah, without the pedal, but just the effect, I wanna try it.

He uses a QZ1 box in his setup which is simply a pedal-less CryBaby. Effect is knob controlled so it can be set and left. Dunlop built it because so many were using the wah and the pedal kept falling. The market for it fell off afterwards. They're no longer available. Some used ones can be found for sale. Some boutique shops that will custom build can create one ... for a price. Someone with enough electronics skills can probably take a wah and throw it into a box, or convert the top of the wah (remove the pedal and mounts) and convert the pot motion. The latter would VERY likely be far easier and less costly. My gears are turning now. Converting a used wah would be cheaper than buying the QZ I saw. Bulkier, but cheaper.

slash's tech himself claims that on tours the eq setting slash uses is like that of a upside down frown, meaning mids would be highest. But anyway i guess it's different from amp to amp.

Автор MusNick ( назад)
Thank you SOOOO much! Ive been playing guitar as my second instrument (im a drummer) and i got an epiphone les paul standard. I was able to use my marshall Mg30 and les paul to get this tone. ordered a used cry baby for 40$ on guitar center used, gonna get it perfect. Again, Thanks a bunch!

Автор Sereno Withers ( назад)
I have my amp, guitar, and wa set to everything he has his exactly set to. But then again, he has a gibson and a marshal when i have an epiphone with slash signature alnico II hum buckers and a vox...so i can see why it doesn't sound as orgasmic as his.

Автор Heroic Moose ( назад)
when i use my wah (regular crybaby) i lose all of the "gain sound" it loses alot of its punch and the high tones are waaay to sharp, any one have any idea to fix this or is it something i can do?

Автор Abcd Abcd ( назад)
Damn nice dude I always had a hunch that he used the wah pulled back a little when I heard the sweet child intro but I never thought that someone else figured that out. Glad I'm not alone haha

so it's not just my mg that has terrible feedback

know if the model of your amp is in stores and you know what your price

Автор guitarwrecker ( назад)
haven't tried it with mg30fx so i couldn't say, just using the amp's internal distortion and and the cry baby pedal, nothing else

Автор Joseph Lennon ( назад)
Did anybody else notice the tube screamer on top of the marshall

Автор andres o.c. ( назад)
I have two questions, using only the distortion or wah, I can not get that tone with another amp marshall (mg 30fx)?

Автор Darren Chan ( назад)
Killer tone! Very close indeed. I love what the wah does to the sound, really helps me cut through in a band setting, cleans up the noise problems too!

Автор Rambo Junior ( назад)
WOW, very very very close man!

Автор Jody1985beta ( назад)
Very close, sounds great man. Even through a webcam mic!
I would say the wah filter is the sliiiightest bit too high in the mix, if you could turn that down about 5-10% youd be almost identical, pretty good as even Slash says hes never been able to get that tone again haha.
