Berkeley Tone

Post by theactor19 » Tue Dec 16, 2014 4:16 pm

Has anyone been able to get Jimi's legendary Berkeley tone? This is definitely one of his most standout concerts for me. Love the tone on Voodoo Child, Hey Baby, Hear My Train a Comin' and Lover Man!

I have the Roger Mayer Axis fuzz which doesn't quite do it (Read my review here: http://www.guitartonetalk.com/2012/06/0 ... zz-review/

If you have sound clips, please share!

in the end of my clip there are some tones going in the Berkeley direction a bit. thanks to the Dunlop blue fuzz volume at max, and fuzz to zero : now the univibe works better, and the saturation is much less fuzzy and more interesting. i could do better bi suppose ut here it is anyway

Fake speakers !!! :) virtual !! fake gonvolution IR 1G2h30 cab from redwires 1.6 into altiverb. coming from a tonehunter spl transducer. i think it gives good results enough when you have to play at night on headphones so it doesn't disturbs the neighbours.

but when i use real speaker, it's the G12H30 75 hz pre rola, and it's very close, only better off course.
