    Great amps! I like the 6L6 versions the best. Plenty of gain and the cleans are very Fender-esque. Had plenty of guys in my town gig/tour that use the 50w head like you're looking at and it always sounded good. Can't speak too much on the cabinets or the speakers, but they've got to be good if Eddie put his name on them lol.

    The guy on ebay is a sham.
    there was a guy on these forums that made GOOD JE-1000 clones.


    On this forum Rune gave a OG JE-1000 to the guy and he completely reverse engineered it. i believe he was called RR480 on here.
    He then proceeded to make the clone with high end parts, it came with option for push-pull aswell, so you did not need to drill a hole in your guitar.
    Back then I bought one for €50 which was alot to me then, but now i regret not buying 2. it was REALLY good!
    I currently have it in my RR and it sounds great!.
    Recently I found him on reverb since a few months ago I was looking for the manual, he might do another run if enough people are interested :)

    There are two of these. Alexi had one and the other one was sold by Musamaailma for ~7k€ if I remember correctly.

    I remember seeing the dude who got the one from Musamaailma posting it on facebook a month or two ago, maybe longer.

    2 questions. I saw there’s this software from BIAS? With the guitar tones from every album. Has anyone tried this? And how/what would I need to make it work?

    also what amps are y’all using that has a decent bodom tone that doesn’t cost my future first born? I have a lee Jackson gp-1000 just not sure if I buy a tube power amp and use it, or go another direction.

    I'm really not big on using software for tones, but I also just sold my desktop PC, so I only have my laptop, and that gives me latency. Using Reaper DAW with a Behringer U-Phoria UMC202HD. Shitty Acer laptop.
    It really depends how loud you can go. I have cool neighbours but i have to be considerate to my kids and wife, so I'm getting a hardware cabsim to use with my E530 and recording interface.
    Theres a guy near me whos selling two Rocktron Velocity 300s for 200€. Should i pick up the other one, for one of you guys?

    I have a GP-1000 too and have used a Rocktron Velocity 100, Peavey Classic 50/50, and now an Engl E840 in the power section. Each one was a clear step up from the last, though definitely more expensive. Love the Engl, sounds great and highly recommend.

    I’ve been considering getting a Marshall JVM head lately though

    I have the BIAS plugins and they doesn't sound like the album tones at all. I think you mean the albums from SW to HOB.

    I'm using the neural DSP plugins for a month now and Im super satisfied. Especially when you mix them with other impulse files, they sound really great and you can get nearly all Bodom tones out of them

    I was literally going to put one of Arcane's videos as a reference. He is the master of dialing in Bodom tones.

    Appreciate the info. This may be a dumb question, but do you have to use a tube power amp along with a tube preamp? I’d looooooove to have an engl amp but damn they’re expensive. Unless I sold my gp-1000 to buy the Engl preamp.

    Does anybody have any idea if something like this will be available as an ESP or LTD regular signature series? I'm desperately looking to buy an Alexi model, but I'm really not a fan of the fully black one or the greeny with the skull above the humbucker...

    A power amp takes a line level signal and boosts power to drive high wattage to low impedance loads like speakers. A Preamp usually has volume and sometimes balance control, tone controls and filters. In other words, a preamp amplifies extremely weak signals like those coming from a guitar or a microphone or certain instruments, to a level where a power amp can amplify it to the desired power level while keeping the signal clean and free of any interference. But to answer your questiom: You don't need both, but it's recommended.

    Only ESP can tell you that. But I don't think they will launch the guitars after Alexi's death.

    No tubes required! Alexi has relied on SS poweramps for the first few albums and tours.

    What have you been using with your GP-1000?
    Tube poweramps really only make sense when you can crank them to get a bit of breakup. Usually though a big stereo tube poweramp, such as also used by Alexi, would have to be at ear splitting levels. In the other hand, for metal you'd also want headroom to make sure the bottom stays tight and don't mush out.
    So for me at least makes more sense to get an SS poweramp.

    I'm listening to 'Chaos, Control and Guitar' on audiobook, and Alexi mentions that he was still to this day (release of book) haunted by the Lee Jackson sound. I regret selling my GP-1000, so I think you will too.

    The e530 is a fine unit, and I like it a lot for its reliability, versatility and sound. But really does differ from the Lee Jackson.

    My GP-1000 has been sitting in my closet. I’ve been using a little line 6 amp. I’ve been wanting to get a power amp and cabinet and get this baby going. I don’t get to play near as much as I used to, with having a wife/family now, but I still want to get it going.

    you could be right in that I would regret selling it. But if I got a good deal and it’s going to someone who would really appreciate it, I’d be ok with that.

    Finally got around to making some quick and dirty comparison clips between the EMG ABQ and the MM-04 with the J50BC. Let me know which you guys prefer!

    Great video. Not a massive difference, but to my ears the EMG sounds slightly better.
