This is a really excellent site. Check out the bass player from Incubus. His rig is unbelieveable.

Look at the difference between Tony Iommi's 1971 rig and his 2001 rig:

1971:
Classy, that's what I think a guitar rig should look like. 6 Laney heads!!!:

2001:
Holy crap! 8 Laney heads (+2 backups)!

Tom Morello's rig is refreshingly simple as well, which is great.

Took me ages to find one without effects pedals and boxes and equalizers and stuff.

I should boycot them for not including Steve Cropper.

His rig is easy to model.

1993 Jackson Kelly --------------> Metal Zone -------------> Jim Dunlop Cry Baby Wah ----------> Synchros Twin 20

It's all great except for Metal Zone and Synchros

Except the other day it was

1993 Jackson Kelly --------------> Metal Zone -------------> Jim Dunlop Cry Baby Wah -------------> Boss multi effects ------------>pre amp---------------------> Amp---------------------> Marshall speaker

It was a Peavey Pre-amp... not sure of the specs. The only weak link in that is Metal Zone which seems to be almost impossible to make sound 'sweet' rather than thin and weedy.

Nills Lagerbaak
02-12-2002, 13:00:39
Losers. The Boss Metal zone has given us our rawest, rockest, phatest sound yet. I shall bring Metal Zone to my grave (when I am fired into the sun etc...)

Funkodrom
02-12-2002, 14:19:50
Yeah, I love thin weedy guitar tones.

Nills Lagerbaak
02-12-2002, 14:34:10
You listen to the practice recording. It isn't my guitar that sounds "Thin and weedy"!

Funkodrom
02-12-2002, 14:43:50
I haven't heard that but it did when we were in the room and on the video camera.

Oh yeah, watching that reminded me of something. You have started doing a chuggy chuggy thing again on Mystic 4 instead of the right rhythm. It sounds shit.

Nills Lagerbaak
02-12-2002, 14:48:43
I don't know what you're on about, I'm not playing anything different to what I always have played

Get an original Ibanez Tube Screamer :D

Funkodrom
02-12-2002, 15:03:21
That's what you said last time we explained what you were supposed to play. :D If protein boosted my guitar enough that you can hear it then listen to what I play when I come in on the same bit. Even Pete commented on it.

Nills Lagerbaak
02-12-2002, 15:12:38
Erm, if this is true, why did noone point it out at the time? The whole point of having a practice copy, was to have a correct one, now if I can't hear your guitar I can't play the right thing!!

Funkodrom
02-12-2002, 15:18:13
I didn't hear it at the time or I would have.

It starts with G pulled off to E

Dah-nah, dah-nah, dah-nah-dah-nah, *bend*

I think you were playing

chug-chuggah, chug-chuggah, chug-chuggah, chug-chuggah

all on E... not entirely sure though.

Nills Lagerbaak
02-12-2002, 15:24:54
I though you were on about that. I assure you that I was playing G pulled on to E

Funkodrom
02-12-2002, 15:26:58
OK cool but you were definitely chugging. It's a lot heavier if it's not chugged.

Nills Lagerbaak
02-12-2002, 15:30:16
It chugs when it's just me doing it, and then it rocks when you join in, it has always done that

Page Hamilton from Helmet always has a pretty heavy sound, his set-up looks damned expensive though.

So what's the biggest rig you've seen so far?

I don't like everyone picking on you but that bit does need sorting out Nills. I know the bit. you sort of start playing triplets instead of sticking to the four/four. Its at the bit where Phil used to chant really fast and you have started copying that timing. We can iron out any faults at the rehersal.

The shoegazer special.

Yep, that's exactly it.

Only one minor point though, the rest was great. Solo on Carpet Burns especially. Couldn't stop grinning when you got that note for note from the recorded version. :beer:

Nills Lagerbaak
02-12-2002, 16:29:38
Cheers, I do know the bit you are on about now, and it needs sorting - I'll have something by the time of the next practice.

Shall try and replicate the wierd solo I did on helmet as well

02-12-2002, 16:30:39
I haven't heard that yet but if protein says it's good I say go for it.

There's a sort of chromatic bit that's really un-Nills like and weird.

Holy crap! I've got about 50 virtual effects but they hardly count against that lot. You must be loaded. Perhaps you would like to invest in Sonic Underminds album. ;)

Most of the time I'm using a BOSS GT-5 multieffect. But I love all the land mines. Ahhh

Disappointing that the site appears to totally overlook Vox guitars. No Teardrop. No Starstreamer. The coolest guitars on earth, totally ignored.

Who used them? The guitars they have only seem to be in there because of who uses them.

Scabby, you are going back to times when that was all that was available. Find a modern guitarist who uses a rig like that.

Funkodrom
03-12-2002, 09:49:06
Oh and should note, Nills is playing the correct thing on the practice CD. :beer: Must have been one of the other takes on the video.

See quote on that page. Go Dave!

Vincent
03-12-2002, 10:03:37
Old stuff is overrated. I never understood that retro movement - hmm, actually I did during the early 80s when every company released crap instruments. I had a 77 Stratocaster and it was terrible. I rather see innovative instruments rather than 1957 Fuckthecaster reissues played on classic 1966 Arsehall amps. Hendrix is dead!

Funkodrom
03-12-2002, 10:08:33
Hendrix jumped on every new bit of kit available to try and make his guitar make new sounds. He'd be playing with new stuff today I'm sure.

Scabby: I agree with that quote from Dave Davis 100%.

That site is actually quite limited in who's on it. I can't find anyone I'm searching for. :(
