Randy Rhoads vs. Zakk Wylde – Pedal Shoot-Out

ModKitsDIY

Boys & Girls – Welcome back to another TTK Pedal Shoot-Out.  In celebration of 30 Pedals in 30 Day, today, we have a shoot-out that I thought any guitarist would be interested in …  We have the MXR Distortion+ Pedal as used by Randy Rhoads VERSUS the MXR Wylde Overdrive Pedal, as used by Zakk Wylde.  Click HERE to watch the video, or scroll down below. 

Now, a few notes about this shoot-out … Randy Rhoads used to use Plexi style amps, which weren’t as high gain as the JCM800s that Zakk Wylde used.  Even though Randy’s amps were modified to give you gain, it was moderate at best compared to the gain of the more recent and modern day amps.  This may explain why Randy used a ‘Distortion’ pedal, whereas Zakk uses an ‘Overdrive’ pedal.  Anyway, you’ll get to hear both pedals over a CLEAN and a DIRTY Channel, so you can decide for yourself which you like best!  As always, I hope you enjoy the video!  AND, don’t forget to vote below!!
