    Does anybody know anything about how they achieved the thunderous guitar sound on the early Duane Eddy records?

    Ribbon mics and a large Fender amp on 7 or 8. Lots of reverb and of course, Duane Eddy.

    Due to the age of these recordings, most likely they are live recordings to two or maybe three tracks.

    Also most likely they are recording into a custom built console....more than likely all tube as well as the amps in the tape machine being tubes too.

    The engineers are most likely REAL engineers and the room is probably a very well designed recording space.

    Google to find out where and who recorded these works and this will be the answer to your query.

    Wait....theres more. The legendary DJ and rock pioneer Lee Hazelwood was responsible for the recording of Duane as well as being his co-song writing partner.

    An investigation of Lee Hazelwoods career will bring you closer to the information on BIG GUITARS.
