Maybe but it still plays second fiddle to my mighty LP!
Naaah. Not even close...
Still, very good tone!
Of course there is no such thing as best tone ever. But Matt Schofield is my favorite living blues player. And I think his tone is amazing.
Here's a favorite YouTube clip. Though he's playing on a 335 in this. Note: As mentioned in the video, his trio doesn't have a bass guitar player, the organ player covers that. That guy is amazing.
Elliott Randall's playing on Reelin' in the Years is pretty awesome tone.
Listen to this:
Hughie gets what I consider to be the quintessential Strat tone on this song.
All subjective, of course, but that OP clip sounds like he's plugged straight into the PA to me. Just plain and uninteresting.
Here's a few Strat voicings that grab my attention and get my heart thumping...
There's no better recording to illustrate the difference between the sound of a Stratocaster and a Les Paul. This song made me realize I had to have both.
Gonna go a different direction as far as "epic strat tone".
I love hendrix's and Trower's rich sounds but I'm going to stick to the "strat treble tone" for this.
Alex Lifeson's "Hentor Sportscaster" made some skull crushing chord voicings in "marathon" and "emotion detector".
The solo to "marathon" just pierces your soul with amazing treble as does the initial sustained guitar at the beginning of "emotion detector".
He later had to use an active single coil on his "signature" (signature company) guitars to get the same treble sounds on tour.
David Gilmour cut's through the mix in give blood........especially during the solo.
Of course, he has gilmour, pino palladino, and simon philips so it's all around badass.
I can't figure out how buckethead's getting a strat sound out of his les paul...........maybe he's playing a strat on this one or his signature les paul coil tap is doing this.
Best Strat tone ever? Eric Clapton, on his finest album.
Example at 2:15:
Mark Knopfler Sultans of Swing
I believe it was in the "At Last...The Beginning: The Making of Electric Ladyland" where Eddie Kramer said that Hendrix used a Gibson to record the lead guitar parts
Strat tone, you said?
Considering it's coming from the player formerly known as "Mr 335", this incredibly nice tone is even more valuable.
ed king had a good strat tone and so did the guitar player from captain beyond..
