What amps do they use?
I forget where I read it but Dual or Triple Recs. They get some cool tones but not my favorite.
The last album was 4 tracks 5150, this newest one was tracked with 5150 and Rectifier, if Andy doesn't reamp.
Fury was 5150's??????????????
I would have NEVER guessed.
4 tracks TS -> 5150 -> Mesa oversized -> 57, IIRC.
That's a great sounding album. Every instrument really sits in it's own space in the mix. You can almost see where one instrument stops and another starts. Amazing.
I use a 6505+ and I just wouldn't have guessed 5150/6505 for those tones. After seeing sooo many pics of this band using Mesa live (I've never seen or heard of them using anything other than Rectos), I guess those images make me think Mesa when I listen to their albums.
Peavey should release a new head which basically combines all these amps. An immense clean sound with the most devestation filthy distortion being a Triple rect with the 5150. They would sell like hot cakes.
Does the 5150 even have a clean channel?
They came close with the JSX.
Everybody seems to say that the JSX dosent have as much gain as the XXX or the 5150
it doesnt really, defo not as much as the xxx
but the 'devestation' doesnt come from the amount of gain, i wouldn't put the gain past 7 of a JSX. There's plenty to it. Less gain gives you a lil more attack and if you pick nice and hard it'll sound more crushing than having ur gain on 10
Even if it has less gain, who the fuuuuck needs more than half the gain either the XXX or 5150 has?
yes, especially the lead channel.
Thats why id never have a 5150, I need my clean
It does have a clean channel just not a very good one
Ah well thats not too bad then, however I do like a semi-decent clean! hehe
it doesnt say clean on it anywhere
Channels = Rhythm, Lead - not Clean, Distortion
