Re: Kathy states there will be an “exciting announcement” on Randy’s birthday..

Randy did NOT use a Dunlop wah. Dunlop was not making Cry Baby wahs at that time. The company was called Thomas Organ. They made the Cry Baby in the 70s along with the VOX wahs. I'm tired of seeing that incorrect information regarding Randy's wah pedal. If you wanted a Cry Baby wah wah in the late ...

Re: Kathy states there will be an “exciting announcement” on Randy’s birthday..

However, as part of Randy's overall tone...the D+ was essential as it really is a, like he even said at the seminar and labeled on the pedalboard, is a Fuzz OD! Any changes to the OD would NEED to keep the Fizz DNA characteristic, as part of his tone and we all love. You need that fuzz and sizzle o...

Re: Kathy states there will be an “exciting announcement” on Randy’s birthday..

There is a postcard from Randy he wrote to Kevin Dubrow when he just moved to England. He wrote Kevin telling him he did something that would Kevin make very happy: he finally bought Marshall amps and had them 'beefed up'. By 'beefed up' did he meant adding the 'cascade mod' ? If so, then I think th...

Re: Kathy states there will be an “exciting announcement” on Randy’s birthday..

The tone was the cascading of the normal and lead channels in the 1959 Plexi..... We don't know that. To use the cascade of the 1959RR amp one has to plug into the normal channel. From the live photos we've never seen Randy plugged into the normal channel of any of his amps. IF the 1959RR is exactl...

Re: Kathy states there will be an “exciting announcement” on Randy’s birthday..

The announcement is a new Randy Rhoads MXR Distortion Plus pedal. Jim Dunlops team came to Musonia and examined Randy’s pedalboard in detail. A couple years ago Dunlop re-issued the "MXR CSP104 '73 Vintage Script Distortion+ ". That one has a GERMANIUM diode instead of the Silicon diode t...

Re: Randy Rhoads Jackson RR3

Thnx for that Shawn! Great video from Pete, and really informative too. 8)
I think this vid from Pete is probably way more interesting (for most here) than the new 'QR Randy doc' which I'm not even in a hurry to watch....

Re: pictures of Randy's pedalboard

The Flying Dutchman - "it's by far not enough to copy only his pedalboard settings when not having the exact entire rig" Yep! And that's why I now have EVERYTHING to complete his rig when the pedalboard is done! I have the guitar (real 72-75 LPC) with the Super 74 pickups with Alnico III ...

Re: pictures of Randy's pedalboard

4. I can clearly see the pedal settings on the pedalboard, so i'll set my accordingly when i finish now in the near future! I wouldn't rely on that too much since Bernie Torme used Randy's pedalboard for a couple of shows. It's not unlikely he changed settings to his taste. There are some clear pho...

Re: Live Tracks from Diary 40th

Flying High Again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNdEf-mIXO8 Believer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEmcAzAVsLc Believer sounds slower, solo is amazing and lots more improv and there's an effect 4:09 which is new to me.

Re: Any news on possible footage coming out?

I think the only footage we can be sure it exists and maybe will be released is the footage that was given to Kathy.

This one could be from the Cleveland show where it looked he used the yellow Boss OD1 on top of his pedal board:
