    Totally agree with Dino,
    I love tube amps but they’re super heavy to haul around, and expensive to repair if something fails. I love gear like most metal and rock players but for the last year and half I’ve been playing through a Line 6 Spider IV 150 HD with a Line 6 stereo matching cab. Im playing in manual mode (dual rectifier model) with a Boss Super Overdrive in front and a Boss noise suppressor too. For me right now it does the chuggah chuggah thing very well. If you spend some time you can dial in a killer tone without having to invest $$$$

    Going digital is a brilliant move. If I hadn't seen this video, I wouldn't have known Dino was using a digital amp. This technology is so good it just doesn't make sense to tour with a wall of amps. John McLaughlin's been going straight in to the soundboard for twenty years now. These days he's touring with an HX Stomp. He can play anything he wants and this works for him. Mark Knopfler is also using an HX or AxFx, I forget which one. But it just makes sense. When you can get the tone without the hassle and unreliability then digital makes sense.

    I went with digital because it was cheaper. All the Tubes Amps have skyrocketed in price. It is part of the reason I use Solid State. The second reason is that the response is tighter. Also, they are easier to transport as far as not having to worry about damaging tubes. Plus, most of them, like Crate amp heads, are built like a tank. I drop one of them by accident and the thing still plays flawlessly.

    That was around 98.
    I bought one that summer, and today I have a POD Go in a hard case that I literally take everywhere with me.
    It sounds absolutely killer.
    Though I do have conventional amps, I only use their power section to amp my Go.

The clean tones were great, and running it in stereo with the 2203, was deafening and brutal!! Now days it’s a Diezel Herbert pedal (with some other effects), through a powered, tube, 1x12 cab.

    B. didn't have to mess with carrying and hooking up a half-stack and head, and
    C. didn't have to worry about mic placement.
    I got a Tube MP at the end of my chain I usually use so that might've made it sound even better, but I went with a minimum pedal set up that night of Multi FX with amp sim, Distortion, and Wah. 10/10 would recommend 👍

  • @80s_kid
    @80s_kid 7 місяців тому +2

    Great stuff, thanks! In my opinion, the factors that most affect this type of sound are: manual skills (some people are simply more skilled/gifted at picking than others), pick attack (+ pick type), pickup, properly strings (not too loose, not too tight, not too thick, not too thin ), guitar cab & speakers with wise mic placement. The latter two is very important. Good IRs work too. Obviously you need a high gain head (or digital stuff) and some boost but this can be achieved in several ways.

    Prime example is mudvayne. Chad and Greg went their own ways, after many years they seem to have reconciled their differences and are back to touring.
    Then you got pantera and it literally took until both brothers were dead that he could leach off the pantera name (I liked down don't get me wrong) which I'm disappointed Zakk signed up for. Of all the great guitarists zakk should have had the respect to not jump in on that whole pantera tour. I'm sure both the brothers rolled over in their Graves from that one.

    I would've thought he played amp modellers (or digital amps) for years already - considering that immense intensity he has in his sound.
    Plenty artists have been using for instance Tech21 Sansamp gear for decades, specifically to be totally (tonally) free of the venue and PA, because you basically bring your own.

    A lot of bands seem to get their equipment stolen in Philly lol. I remember seeing SOAD in Jersey back in 2012 and somebody stole one of Daron's SG's when they just did a show there. He was talking about it on stage asking people to keep a look out for it. He was pissed. And I've heard/read some other stories

      @@Salomon_G They were already writing catchy hooks and short songs since Demanufacture, if you take out all the extended repetitions, how is it any different from that, and what's wrong with being short or radio friendly? Lol Even Beatles wrote short radio friendly songs. It's not like they started sounding like nickelback. You need to be more specific. I was referring to people not liking it due to the rapping or dj scratches since nu metal was big at the time. For me I'm more of a death metal guy Soul of the New Machine being my fav album by them, and I don't hate Digimortal...so idk what makes FF fans so special thinking they 'sold out' or whatever when talking about that phase as if they were being trendy or something on the contrary they were one of the formative bands that influenced a lot of early so called nu metal, with their use of industrial samples so if anything it was totally natural for them to step in that direction.

    I know that a lot of music today is made with drum plugins. Just as often the bass. This works well as long as you don't pay attention to it. Like with me as a bass player. The "soul" is also what I miss in the last Fear Factory album. The sound is too clear.
    Dino is the best Fear Factory guitarist but I especially miss the wider human influence. This is also the difference between the AI Liam Galagher on the Aisis - The Lost Tapes album and other AI generated music. Because there is still a lot of craft and soul in it.

    Soul of a new Machine was fear factory first tour.
    After, the concert ive read about their gear stolen.
    Cool, thing too is Dinos jcm800 sounded better than andreas kisser sepultura guitar which was is mesa boogie😅😅
    Fear Factory did tour with sepultura, i still have ticket.
    For all laptop bedroom shredders.
    Checkout bands from in mid 1980s early 1990s.
    Eaxmple rigor mortis( this Ministry before name change) it had those drum samples
    Also Skinny Puppy.
    The band started it all what Dino is talking about.
    GodFlesh. Their ones that started it all, then it was rigor mortis Ministry skinny puppy, early nine inch nails.
