    Not positive but during that time I would imagine modded Marshalls, like the Lee Jackson stuff (Metaltronix).

    Mustaine always said the amps were a plexi, 69 I think, with everything on full.

    I might be delusional, but I like their old sound better. Guitars sound teeth gnashing mean. Especially on Peace Sells.

    Aside from the Sneap albums, I think all of their albums sound really strange besides Peace Sells and Rust In Peace.

    Countdown was my favorite Deth album. first one I ever heard, the production was fuckin' ace. I had to have drawn a lot of my tonal shape and early style from that album alone... and then I found Rust in Peace.

    Peace sells, RIP, Countdown to Extinction, Youthanasia had the best sound from Megadeth. I agree that in the newer albums the sound of the guitars are little rare more modern and "digitalisher". And I don't mean the composition, I love lot of the stuff like "The System has failed".

    Rust in Peace is to me what metal is, should always be and will forever be, more metal than fucking titanium.

    I've read somewhere that BBE Maximizer was used on Countdown, maybe on mix, or instruments...BBE products are thanked on album notes too

    I don't know, any 90's album just sounds way too ridiculously dry. It sounds like the guitars were recorded in a vacuum, a place with no air.

    I remember reading that too. I personally have only found the BBE useful on Bass live.

    Mustaine did make a point to mention that the rhythm guitars in CtE were completely dry when they recorded them. They do sound really dry. Although I love Youthanasia, the guitar tone always bugged me. I don't know what it is, it just seems a bit out of place.

    The drum tone on Countdown <3 I usually don't like dry drum tones but this album is an exception. That wonderful snare probably has something to do with it.

    I always thought this live concert sounded really good, especially the drums. The sound in general seems ahead of it's time for 1992.
