I think gtrwiz nailed it. The only thing I could remember were Marshalls and Boss OD1, with Charvels. The MXRs were Randy, not Jake. IMO Jake is the most underrated of all the guitarists that played with Ozzy. I like his style WAY more than Zakk, and I have to admit that most of the time I like his playing better than Randy. I definitely like his tone more than Randy. Sacrilege, I know.

In the late 80's he was using a Dimarzio Very Metal pedal with Badlands on their first album. That's a good album, a bit schlocky but it's some good hard rock in the vein of Montrose's first album. The Very Metal is one of my favorite pedals.

 

 

I love Badlands! Jake's tone is great on those albums. It's very dry, not totally balls out distortion and his playing is fab. Also, when you say he was using a Very Metal pedal, do you mean that he's using it as his main distortion or just as a booster along with a dirty amp?

 

Also, what do you mean by schlocky?

Badlands...it has a bit of that cheesy hair metal vibe to it, or at least their videos did. But musically they were quite good, like I said they remind me of Montrose. Jake E. Lee was using the Very Metal as his main distortion at the time. Great pedal.

 

 

Ah yeah, I get ya. They kinda had a cowboy type look in their videos. Some other bands had that look in the late 80s early 90s too, although I can't think off hand.
