    To clarify-

    That list is a list of artists who HAVE used SS amps.. doesnt mean they currently do. May have been studio, live, on TV or whatever. Juts cause bands use Mesa now doesnt mean they didnt use others in the past.

    This..... there is a difference. For all intent and purposes modellers are not considered "solid state amps". Solid state amps have a feel and tones that distinctly different from tube amps. In this regard, the term "solid state" is more a description of what tone an amp achieves, as opposed to how the amp achieves it.

    Chuck from Death used The Marshall 8200 heads and Randalls early on.
    James Murphy used the marshall 8100 head on the Disincarnate stuff.
    Vogg has never used a vh-140c in the studio. The solid state heads he has used was the Dime warhead and now uses the Randall ? 300 head. Cant remember the exact model. Vogg uses that Randall head now in combo with some other tube head combined together. There is a drum and Guitar clinic video on youtube that Vogg is talking about his rig! But everything else seems right on your list!! :hbang:

    Are the chorus and reverb global on the GX130? Or can they just be for the clean channel? Trying to get my buddy an alternative to his AX212.

    The GX-130C and GT3500 are identical tonewise to the old Ampeg VH-140C's.

    I hate Crate amps as much as the next guy, but these were VERY different amps for Crate.

    Yep, on their 'Monolith of Death' (oooolllllddddddd) VHS, both Cannibal Corpse guitarists are using Crate heads.

    I hope not.

    I have one and I hate the fucking thing. It did it's job for a while....and I can't bitch about it's build as it never once died or needed anything replaced (aside from the distortion level pot, which I haven't replaced in 4 years).

    It's quite limited as far as texture goes. You can go all the way up from very little gain to more-than-you-need.....EVER, but that actual articulation of the distortion....eh...

    Even after I get an Axe-FX, I'll still keep it.

    I was just about to mention this. If you search around youtube.com long enough for "Cannibal Corpse Live" you'll see some old school stuff of them and plain as day they're using CRATE. I think they threw MT-2's infront of them.

    Vogg is a long time user of the Randall Warhead, which can be heard on at least The Negation and Organic Hallucinosis (which was also tracked with a Recto). When I saw them live he was using a Warhead.

    If anyone wants to correct me on that feel free.

    Except the part about seeing them live, that was one of the greatest albeit most disappointing gigs I've ever been to :lol:

    Wow it's gettin complicated. I wanted to know who deviated from the tube route, that's all, haha. But since it's got to this it'll be cool to sub-divide the SS users into those who use modellers, solid states, and hybrids too!

    The Roland JC was mentioned many times on here, but they're mostly used for the clean sections of songs. I was asking more of who used SS amps as their main amps, even if it's only temporary (1 song, 1 album, 1 show, etc). Cheers!

    Did some research, apparently The Negation was a boosted Dual/Triple Rec and Organic Hallucinosis was a boosted Triple Rec and a Randall Warhead, which was confirmed by the studio, Vogg and Martin the old Decap bassist.

    I do believe you are correct sir! I also heard from a bunch of bands that have toured with decapitated that have said that vogg in the early days never had any guitar equipment for studio or live. He only had a guitar and would rent or borrow equipment from bands.

    It should be pointed out that most artists used the JC120 for clean tones,
    and usually had a different amp for dirty.

    The mainstay for the longest time for most bands was a Marshall Stack (most often tube, like a JCM800) for rhythm and lead and a JC120 for cleans.
    Then one would use some type of A/B box to go between them.


    So I guess the question should really be "not" who used solid state amps.
    But, who "used" solid state amps for their dirty amp?

    John Hate of Vital Remains uses Line 6 Flextone when I saw him live.

    I think Lacuna Coil and Evanescence guitarists use the HD147 and Flextone as well.
