I'm surprised the NAGA sound fit with the Lynch tone........Very cool!

Is it set radically different than how you dial in for Iommi tone?

When I do Iommi stuff (80's DIO era, not Ozzy), I'm typically using a PAF type pickup (either Seth Lover, or the "PAF on stereoids" SH-5).

These have a slightly scooped midrange and "notched honk" that seem to me to be in the Iommi ballpark (80's DIO era).

This was my old JB of course (more mids). But I did dump a hair of 500Hz in the DAW. But there's more mids here, like George does with his Tube Screamer boosting.

It's a little grindier with a harder edge breakup compared to a tubescreamer but it still sounds good which surprised me.

I don't know what gear Geo. used on that particular tune, just know that in Dokken he did favor the Tubescreamer.

I always thought it was known that he used a tubescreamer into the Aspen Pittman Purple Marshall and SLO for Wicked Sensation. I could be wrong but that what I seem to remember. :roll: :?

Was he running it in front of the amp ?

According to George's original official website (georgelynch.com - you'll have to use the internet wayback machine to see the older version website):
signal routing was more simplistic than presented here. As Lynch explained it at the time, "I use an old Ibanez Tube Screamer or a Boss GE-7 to preamp my amps a little. Other than that, I don't use pedals except an A/B switch to throw on another guitar. I go stereo out of a Lexicon PCM-41 with 28 milliseconds of delay to fatten up my rhythms." Also pictured here two Rocktron HUSH II-C's to keep things quiet on both sides of stereo application. A Rockman Distortion Generator was used to push the signal a little more to the power section. Used in A/B switching, there is also a Rockman X100-B in a Rockmount for a chorused clean signal. While using the clean alongside the high gain in an A + B application in tandem, Lynch describes the sound as "giving it a a bit of a shimmer and percussion" to the rhythm guitar parts.

As mentioned, Lynch used an old Ibanez Tube Screamer or the BOSS GE-7 to preamp his amps. Above is the TS-808 that has been present for most of Lynch's recording career, as was used during the 1985 recording of Dokken's "Under Lock And Key" album.
