For this release from the 1979 album ‘Deguello’, guitarist Billy Gibbons said that he used a Marshall Major amplifier and a Maestro ring modulator and that the amplifier had a blown tube during recording which added to the tonal character of the song.The Marshall Major is a slightly taller, 200-watt version of the classic Marshall 100-watt head.
