    Here are example's of Alexi's and Roope's rack setups:

    Alexi's Rack

    [​IMG]

    1. Samson PowerBrite Pro 9.
    2. Shure UHF Wireless Antenna
    4. Shure UHF Marcad Diversity MKII Wireless Unit
    5. RSP 2400 Hush/Enhancer/Exciter
    6. Rocktron Intellifex
    7. SansAmp PSA 1 (Tech 21 NYC)
    8. Lee Jackson GP-1000
    9. VHT Two/Fifty/Two

    The antenna supossed to be in the Shure Unit, notice the holes on the left and right side.
    Number 3 seems to be a empty space.

    Roope's rack.

    [​IMG]

    1. SansAmp PSA 1 (Tech 21 NYC)
    2. Alesis QuadraVerb
    3. RSP 2400 Hush/Enhancer/Exciter
    4. Lee Jackson GP-1000
    5. Lee Jackson SP-1000
    6. VHT Two/Ninety/Two

    Notice the antenna's. The wireless unit isnt on the picture, but it is there. I think the same one as alexi uses.

    I dont have any idea how old this setup is. I guess something from 2005/2006. Perhaps 2004.

    Regardless of what equipment they're using now, it's still useful for those that want to get close to their Hate Crew Deathroll tone (I know Alexi switched to the VHT poweramp for that album so it must be a shot from 2003, around the time Alexi did the Young Guitar DVD: Reap 'N' Roll Licks).

    the peavey classic 50/50 is probably the best deal moneywise on a tube poweramp IMO, i got mine for $175, its got a lot of options the resonance and presence knobs are sweet

    I thought they changed to VHT during AYDY. I know he used a peavey 50/50 during Tuska 2003.

    I'll try to watch the Reap 'n roll dvd, there's a shot of his Rack there.

    Well yeah, that's the Follow The Reaper sound. I'm just saying, if someone wanted the HCDR tone, then this WOULD be useful. But then saying that, it'd still be usful for a HB/FTR tone too because Alexi was still using the Lee Jackson preamp, just a different poweramp and different mics in the studio and different mixing.

    From what I've read and heard:

    Something Wild = 5150
    Hatebreeder = GP-1000 + Rocktron Velocity 300
    Tokyo Warhearts = GP-1000 + SP-1000
    Beware the Heavens = ENGL Savage
    To Hell and Back = GP-1000 + Engl E840/50
    Follow the Reaper = GP-1000 + Engl E840/50
    Seoul 2001 = GP-1000 + SP-1000
    Suicide By My Side = GP-1000 + Engl E840/50
    Hatecrew Deathroll = GP-1000 + 5150 (slaved to power section)
    Tuska 2003 = GP-1000 + Peavey Classic 50/50
    Are You Dead Yet? = GP-1000 + VHT 2:90:2
    Chaos Ridden Years = GP-1000 + VHT 2:90:2

    Whatever the power amp, the majority of that sound comes from the J-50BC, JE-1000, and GP-1000.

    so what i think is that i only have to have an J-50BC JE-1000 wich i already own
    and an GP-1000 an SP-1000 and an Marshall 1960B Straight front Speaker Box or how that thing is could and i can play with the bodom sound? with the good options ofcourse

    what are the differences between using an amp like (5150) or a preamp like (GP-1000) ?

    its a rack preamp. You can adjust your sound in racks by buying different rack modules and shit. Okay so heres the difference in 5150 theres the preamp in the head and poweramp and you just plug it into the cabinet. But on a GP-1000 you need to have a poweramp too and plug those 2 together into a cabinet.

    The SP1000 is not necesarry, get an Peavey 50/50 their cheaper (just like lowberg says).
    (@fastbodom: waar woon je, ik weet nog een peavey 50/50 te staan).


    i really dont know, but what i've heard they never used ENGL. Well actually i don t really know.

    I see, then.. the preamp is the one who gives "the tone".. I mean the sound that we reconize from a guitarist, and the poweramp just amplifies the signal to the cabinet ?

    Thanks.
