    Default Zakk Wylde Black Label Chorus

    Just thought I'd give my thoughts on it. I've tried many choruses with my 5150 combo, and this is the first one I'll be keeping. It works very well with high gain sounds, and there's no warbling that I could detect.

    IMO, it's a good option for those who don't want to shell out the $$ for something with detune. Oh, and Zakk uses it too, so it can't be all that bad. Heh.

    Hardly a sterling endorsment, Zakk has to be one of the most boring players currently out there unless you have a serious pinched harmonics fetish. In my mind he's a one trick pony and that pony shot have turned into glue a long time ago. just my $0.02. I'm sure the pedal's ok though.

    The comment wasn't directing at his playing, rather his tone, which at times has been quite good.

    I 100% agree, especially with his Ozzy playing. A buddy of mine who used to work with me, whenever Ozzy came on the radio in the office, we would count the number of pinch harmonics in a song and have a good laugh at Zakk's expense.

    But some of the Black Label Society stuff is pretty impressive to listen to if you can get by his vocals.

    However, they are more processed than a Disney teen queen's.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Love his rythm tone with the chorus. Very chunky. I don't think I'd heard anything *quite* like it back in 1988, which is when his tone first made an impression on me. I do suspect his active pickups have something to do with his maintaining chord-clarity, though. Especially with all that chorus and gain. I might be wrong!

    Zakk Wylde has written and recorded a perfect trilogy of albums in Pride & Glory, Book of Shadows and Sonic Brew. In my book Zakk can do no wrong, but I admit he's gotten lazy over the last 5 years or so.
