Dick Dale

Dick Dale is an American surf rock guitarist, known as “The King of the Surf Guitar.” He pioneered the surf music style, drawing on Eastern musical scales and experimenting with reverberation. He worked closely with Fender Musical Instruments Corporation to produce custom-made amplifiers, including the first-ever 100-watt guitar amplifier. He pushed the limits of electric amplification technology, helping to develop new equipment that was capable of producing distorted, “thick, clearly defined tones” at “previously undreamed-of volumes.” The “breakneck speed of his single-note staccato picking technique” and showmanship with the guitar is considered a precursor to heavy metal music, influencing guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen.

“Dick Dale is a rock & roll colossus. Inarguably one of the most significant and influential electric guitarists of the 20th century.”—L.A. Weekly
