I like the bsss sound in this song.
What B3K setting can do this?
Billy Sheehan's tone is a product of his technique more than anything else. Note how he sounds reasonably similar through any rig.
I'd crank the gain VERY high and keep the blend in the 12:00 area. Won't be exact, but might get you somewhere close. I'm thinking the Vintage Microtubes will probably get a bit closer to this sound since it seems to have that more compressed, warm and slightly furry (as opposed to gritty) quality to it.
need to squash it with compression. might also help to have a 2 pickup bi amp system like he does. thats pretty unique
I think boosting the mids would help a lot! If you have a graphic EQ: 6-10dB@1kHz and cut 4-8dB@5kHz (and over). A single coil neck pickup is important as well!
Some compression too! Specially if you want those artificial harmonics he's so known for .
If you can wait a couple of weeks, EBS are releasing a Billy Sheehan signature overdrive pedal with built in compression and parallel loops that will nail his sound.
