    I hope this isn't a joke post because of a new thread.

    If not, then forget about pedals for now. Try turning down the gain on your amp and boosting the mids a bit more. You could always try an EQ pedal to boost the mids in a more specific way because any kind of distortion/overdrive pedal isn't really going to colour your sound like the GP-1000 & JE-1000 did.

    ^Agree with mitch! I bought a EQ pedal and it suprised me (im not after a ALEK C sound) with the versatility...it can get you pretty darn close ANY sound...including alexi's.

    :lol:! I agree partly on that sigh but i think when we wanted a thread like this let's treat as such too! He atleast asked in the right thread :zombie:

    Agreed. I suggest to try a Bugera, the are really cheap but really efective copies of Peavey's tube heads. I'm getting one this summer if I can't afford Allu's pink Edwards, :lol:

    Now, COB-gear thing: does the HZ 4 sound as gay as in the Rebel Yell jam at the end of Reap n Roll vid when not boosted/loaded with shitload of dist?

    I posted it in the GP thread too, but I remembered about this thread (sorry, still too new and not memorised, :lol:) and I'll put it here too:

    WTF?? Wasn't MM04 sposed to be a passive p-ups booster? Then what are ESP playing at?

    Alexi Laiho Pink Sawtooth BLACKOUT + MM04


    I don't think it is a bad idea. We're on th On Topìc section, there's where this things should be and IMO it's good to have it there, it could avoid many ''too many times heard'' questions. Would you like help to do it?

    Well after reading a few things recently, it's pretty clear that an EQ pedal that'd colour your tone by adding mids ASWELL as boosting the gain will help more than just a gain boost switch, which does exactly the same as the gain knob on the amp head/preamp. The gainboost on my RR doesn't make my tone sound anymore like Alexi's, but reducing gain and adding mids does.

    Get it?

    Another reason to forget about getting a ESP CS w/booster. I would never get it still but that just makes it all the more ridicolous :lol: It kind of eliminates the purpose of that booster how alexi used it...meaning to make his passives active :lol: Rather just get the normal ESP without any fuckin boosters...still Edwards FTW! and SH-5 into one of those is pretty :cool:

    Maybe you could list the equipment used on the different CDs for people interested in getting a tone on a certain album. Sort of like:

    SOMETHING WILD
    Amp:
    Guitar:
    Other:

    HATEBREEDER
    Amp:
    Guitar:
    Other:

    And so on. Just an idea.

    Wow, read the first post!

    "I could do something similar to the Tab Thread, where I write down as much info as possible about the gear used on each album so people know what they're hearing as they've progressed over the years."

    If people want to throw some FACTS at me, then I will combine them of my exsisting knowledge and try my best to provide an accurate lst.

    Alright guys, I've made a start on the first post GEAR LIST for Alexi.

    I don't know if I'll have enough info about Roope/Ale to add it all in but if anyone wants to give me exact details, then I'll add it.

    There's a few things regarding Alexi's exact guitars, poweramps on some of the albums, so again, if anyone can help out, I'll update it all ASAP.

    Any other info that you think should be in there, let me know.
