Smooth Grooves Gear Setup

Friday 20th July 2012 Knowledge Base

Dave Lockwood's Smooth Grooves series has been a wonderfully well received set of jam tracks. To help your quest to get the right sound for these early Larry Carlton sounding jam tracks, here is a breakdown of exactly what gear Dave used for each track.

All tracks are using a Fender 62 reissue Strat, except for Outside In, which is a 52 reissue Tele, and Parallax, which is a Les Paul Custom. The main amp is a Hughes & Kettner Statesman Dual 6L6, using the Drive channel always, even for the cleaner sounds. This drives a single Eminence 10" Alnico speaker in a sealed cabinet, miked with an AKG Solidtube large-diaphragm condenser. Dave monitor's reverb and delay whilst playing, but doesn't generally record it, preferring to maintain the flexibility at mixdown. The effects used on the guitar in the mix are Logic's stereo delay, and Universal Audio's Lexicon 224 plug-in. Anamorphic — Strat, middle and neck pickup combination; AnalogMan compressor pedal; H&K amp; sealed cab. Smooth Grooves Anamorphic Preview

Discoteca Potenza — Strat, bridge pickup; SansAmp Classic pedal DIed, using the Hot-rodded Marshall setting from the manual (I was reviewing it for SOS at the time and rather liked it). Smooth Grooves Discoteca Potenza Preview
