Styx and Tommy Shaw


Recommended Posts

My band is a classic rock cover band (with a bunch of 40 year old "geezers")...


We've started playing out (since last spring), and we're adding new music to our set list. One add, Renegade - Styx has brought me here to ask a question.


What do you (or Tommy Shaw if you know) use to get his signature sound?


I know he is a big LP/Marshall fan and we are not (so maybe that is our big issue). We play PRSs through Mesa Boogies (lead guitar plays through an Express 5:50), while I play through a Stiletto Ace 50W. Does he use any specific effects and in what order does he use them?


We're close to the recorded sound, but we're not satisfied. Any suggestions you might have are appreciated...
