    Like i said, i'm new to the forum, and it wasn't a new post for every sentence if you look carefully; i was replying to individuals (1 post per reply, not per sentence!) besides nobody has posted on it in well over a year.

    I know the 5150 wasn't used on THAT production, i didn't even say what era i was focusing on :S. but they often use 5150s so just hoped those settings may have been used at some point as they are KILLER.

    The cab may be different (ie. wood, dimensions) but the speakers are still V30s and MY guitar is actually one of Adam D's old ones (thats right you read that right!) so its about as similar as you can get. The settings on the video i have dialed in are awesome and sound awesome, maybe i need to purchase an attenuator to push the valves but i still believe it will be largely due to production on Protools.

    My 808 IS in front of the amp, its in the effect loop of my BOSS NS2.

    Anyway, thanks for your opinions.

    Just read an article in the new Total Guitar Mag with Adam D talking about his side project "Times of Grace". I know its not Killswitch but I thought you guys would be interested.


    Amps used on the album where his 5150 & Framus Cobra, he said that he used the PRS with the Dragon passive pickups but after the album was finshed he regretted using passive pickups and said that he should of used EMG's.

    Of course the Maxon OD808 was used and also the Maxon AD9

    Haven't they used KT88's in the past? I'm certain at least one of them has.

    Does anyone have any info on the drums on TEOH? The drum fill at the start of Breathe Life sounds absolutely amazing!

    I always thought it was the album before that was Fat City.....EOH could be too, but it sound way more prominent in AOJB

    I have reamped guitars for all of TESF's releases to date. They've been a blast to work with :headbang:

    I vaguely remember reading somewhere on a guitar messageboard about Joels Cobra having KT77's in it at some stage? I'll try dig up that link to the messageboard.



    Anyone haveany info about it or that BS?

    Question for Andy (or everyone if you have answer): Where did you mix TEOH album (what studio)? ITB mix or with a console? What console was used?

    Thanks

    Sweet, how did he get ahold of that? Is it biased/modified at all?

    Just read this back again; FYI Adam and Joel both use their 808's in the loops of their NS2's

    Awesome! What exactly do you mean by reamping all their guitars? Does it just involve taking the unprocessed signal of the guitars and using re-amping software to try diffferent tones? Or do you use hardware? (if so, how does that work, ie. signal chain?) and are they not happy with their original tones when they record? Cheers/
