Check out Brian May’s Guitar Gear

Youtube | Premier Guitar

Queen’s Brian May is undoubtedly one of the best guitarists that ever walked the earth. Everybody knows he’s already got his guitar playing techniques down to a tee but not many are familiar with the tech and gear that he uses. Well, that’s about to change as Premiere Guitar caught up with Brian May himself and his longtime guitar tech Pete Malandrone while Queen + Adam Lambert is on tour. The two guitar experts walk us through what effects, amps, and accessories Brian May cannot go without. They also talk about the Red Special which is the guitar May and his dad built together in 1964. A guitar he’s been using almost exclusively throughout his whole career. Watch and learn as they explain the minimal effects, Vox amps, Burns pickups, and switching systems May uses on stage and in the studio.
