Remember those unforgettable and much loved tunes like Apache, FBI, Frightened City, Atlantis, Savage, Man of Mystery, Shindig and the many many more that Hank and The Shadows created with their prized Stratocasters? Hanks signature sound became legendary and even today is recognized as one of the most classic and distinctive electric guitar sounds ever to grace the grooves of vinyl.
Now it’s the late 90’s and Hanks legendary playing is bouncing lasers onto CD’s from digital recording and mastering equipment. The sound is so clean that noise, which has bugged him for years, became a major headache for this guitarist’s guitarist. However, with the advent of Kinman noise cancelling technology for the immortal Stratocaster, noise has been banished from Hank’s studio sound as well as his live stage sound. No longer is he driven crazy in the studio or live-on-stage with the irritating and polluting hum of single coil pickups.
