Victor is using a very unusual version of a 9-string guitar – it’s a 6 string with the top 3 strings doubled, and it has a pretty unique sound, as you’ll hear in the video.

Here’s what Victor is using for gear:

Hiwatt DR103 100 Watts (1971)

4×12 Oversized cab with two V30 and two G12T 75 speakers

Guitar is Gordon Smith Graduate double cut away 9 strings (top 3 strings are doubled)

Pic ups are Lollar imperial high wind humbuckers

Pedals used here; OCD full tone with a touch of reverb to thicken the sound from my Big Sky Strymon. All pedals go through my boss es8 switcher

Mics are SM57

I usually have a 2nd head live (Marshall JCM800 2204 1984) and an Orange 2×12 with G12t 75. And we use more stuff on albums“
