Rig tour: watch Black Stone Cherry reveal their guitar setups

Black Stone Cherry have had one hell of a year. New album Kentucky hit the UK album charts at #5 and the band headlined Ramblin' Man Fair to boot. Although a supreme knack for hard-rock riffing is responsible for much of that success, their killer tone certainly helps - and that's exactly what the band discuss in these new videos.

Above and below, you'll find clips of guitarists Chris Robertson and Ben Wells divulging all about their rigs, from guitars, amps and pedals, right down to strings, picks and cables.

You can see said gear in action on the band's November/December UK tour, which sees BSC head to a host of more intimate venues - the tour's called Experience Kentucky: An Evening With Black Stone Cherry, and dates are as follows:
