    I like some of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster's tones.

    I think Blackstone Cherry has some really cool sounds on their latest record, imho for that kind of stuff,
    a good classy sound is pretty cool, musically different, but I think the sound could fit: Richie Kotzen,
    especially on the Family Reunion CD, listen to "fooled again", especially the parts with the Hammond, it
    just works really well.

    Ampwise it depends on how "sludgey" you want it ;) I am in love with Orange amps right now and Cornfords,
    but a nice Plexi (especially with some fuzzy boost) could work really well, too, imho guitarsounds for stuff
    like this depend more on the playing style.
    Look how many different amps Down used for example, Kirk used his Randall with a Boost setup at first afaik,
    used Hiwatts and Marshalls some time, now Orange.

    Oh and I love Spiritual Beggars sound for stuff like this, too and another band that's a bit different but has
    a similar vibe: Monster Magnet, just awesome!

    I was gonna suggest Down, Clutch and CoC :lol:

    From the cleaner, more polished end of things Maylene's III and Black Stone Cherry's Between the Devil & the Deep Blue Sea are really cool.

    Yeah cool, except for the part where it's ultra mid scooped, thin, fizzy sounding garbage guitar tone like what's on most Pantera albums. But fuck, if that's your thing.........

    I'll have to agree with what Jarkko said about Maylene.
    Their second album has a very up front guitar sound, but it suits the music so well.
    The third album has a bit more polish to the overall mix and engineering, with a more balanced mix. Really great sounding reference for southern hard rock/metal.

    What? No mention of the great Duane Allman and Dickey Betts? Fillmore East, 'nuff said.
