A Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe into a clean Plexi is pretty hard to beat.
Pickup an old EH LPB-1... done. This will give you Ace Frehley's early tone, and beyond.
I did a pantie raid with Captain Howdy just this morning!
Didn't Pat Benatar guitarist Neil Gerardo DATE Linda Blair back before he hooked up with Patty? I remember some rockumentary where she recounted how he was bummed because he thought Blair was 'steppin' out' on him, & Benatar told the interviewer in her mind she told herself: "... He's MINE, now..!"
That'd been like hitting the lottery back then!
Incidentally, Neil used 2 of those JMP or JCM 2x12 combos with an Eventide between them, & you can hear him play that rig on Rick Springfield's LP back then as well. But you guys probably ALREADY knew that... LOL
OMG .. I have deja vu!!!!
I don't know about Neil? Word has it, she was a "close friend" of the guys in Lynyrd Skynyrd.
These tales are alleged, of course. There was much talk of it on one of the Lynyrd Skynyrd forums.
I think I'll hold on to it for now...
@NewReligion, I don't think I'm going to mod the amp, but if I change my mind, I'll definitely hit you up.
Sounds great though!
Thanks for all the info guys!
IMO great decision.
Best to you.
It depends on the “metal” sound you’re looking for. If you want an early Van Halen thing, try a MARSHALL PowerBrake, turn the bass off and dime everything else. Oh don’t forget to use G12H speakers.
If you want a nu metal thing, sell it and buy a couple triple rectifiers.
Man I must be lucky because I have 1974 100 watt superlead that has enough gain to do early 80s's metal at least without any pedals. It does not have any preamp mods.......
Is it running on DC Heaters?
I would think you could get a good classic metal sound running it like this...
Use a humbucker guitar with kind of hot pickups but not crazy hot. Plug into upper left input, no jumper. Set the volume a little over half way, maybe 6 or 7. Boost with an eq pedal or something like a maxon od808. The idea is to cut some top and bottom from the guitar.
Use a cab with g12t75s to compensate for everything else being mid focused. I know these aren’t everybody’s favorite speaker but they work well for this imo. The old ones are especially good.
dude, get an attenuator, put that thing at 10 them push some od/distortion in front of it.
Send it to RT
become a better player, you wont need the extra gain.
Exactly! The heaviest compositions aren't steeped in ridiculous amounts of preamp distortion. Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple wrote the book on heavy music.
