    Yes I guess the amp is pretty important, as my amp situation, it sucks :( I have a small 15 watt marshall practice amp ... I plan to buy this



    I'll put it in the clean channel of any amp and get that tone and use the boost for solos .... Il EQ the amp and see what happens :D

    ^ Don't. That distortion won't help the sound of your amp even get marginally better.
    Save up for an affordable Combo amp.

    that video however doesnt do the dist pedal justice. I have a lee jackson dist pedal and the distortion is very amp like and incredibly cool, despite sounding kinda shitty on that video.

    However: in front of a 15 watt shitty practice amp nothing will sound good.

    Affordable tube combo is the way to go, and if it doesnt have enough gain you can get a lee jackson thing to boost or use as distortion, cus they rock!

    What price range are we talking?

    The best value ones I found were the Bill Lawrence pick ups. There's 2 guys making them so be careful not to get the ones sold at Stu Mac's. I had to wait a few months for mine, they hand make them and there is a queue.

    Kent Armstrong pick ups I found are also pretty good value.

    I actually have the La Grunge, out of production.
    The name sounds like a nirvana pedal, but its not :p does fantastic high gain sounds ^_^ was a real life saver yesterday where all I had was a fender amp that didnt have any drive at all :p smacked that in front and I had myself an awesome high gain channel, couldnt tell it was a pedal

    Also, tribute to the guru: Mattias Eklundh

    Anyone know what kind of pickups James Murphy used on the Obituary Cause of Death album?? I'm looking for that thick ass sound he used on the solo for Cause of Death. Just wondering if anyone knows or if there is a better place for me to ask?? Thanks!

    You're better off getting a stomp box or effects rack or even just the same amp.

    If you want someone's sound, first get the guitar they use with correct guitar woods and neck, amp, amp settings and any effects they may be using - not to mention what the producer did to get that 'sound'.

    Pick ups are the last thing in line to get someone's sound, even the way they play can affect the tone they get - give his guitar and rig to someone else - will they sound the same? More than likely not.

    Getting back to your question, if he didn't change pick ups on his guitar then maybe just get his guitar or look up the specs to find out.

    You can still go ahead and change pick ups to get some change to the sound you have now but don't expect miracles.
