    Metallica ...Creeping Death... Now that's more like it.

    Peak performance right there. Back when Lars brought ENERGY to the band. Nobody could be critical if he only recently declined, given his age, but he has been stinking it up live since the early 00's. That's half of their career. What a shame.

    Absolutely terrible! More Metallica content

    Kirk couldn't have saved the recent records even if he suddenly developed good vibrato and ditched the wah. Lars is the biggest culprit and not just because of his sloppy drumming. On the "making of" Hardwired and Death Magnetic videos James is going through the motions of banging out throwaway...

    Blistering performance and that tone is out of this world.

    1960A with T75s: kinda awesome?

    The Recto OS has featured different flavours of v30s over the years. Worst cab I've recorded, a 2012 Recto OS. Best cab I've recorded, an early 2000s Recto OS with the code T4335 stamped on the v30s.

    Most Underrated Amp you've played?

    Bugera 333. Expectations were low and it far exceeded them. Good right out of the box and after replacing the stock preamp tubes it was a winner.

    Hetfield, "the Ride the Lightning amp was a...

    Yeah man, I'd be often lost without the Waves C4 multiband comp. A lifesaver for sure. Hetfield's ability to get those super consistent palm mutes and a steady controlled low end with no assistance is impressive. No doubt it's mostly down to his flawless technique but I think that the "crunch...

    Hetfield, "the Ride the Lightning amp was a...

    Yeah it's rare to hear a truly original sounding modern metal production. Back in the early 90s albums had their own unique sonic signature. Chaos A.D, Burn My Eyes, Black Album, Demanufacture, Divine Intervention etc... All instantly identifiable. On numerous occasions I've checked out a...

    Hetfield, "the Ride the Lightning amp was a...

    James is known to dislike compression. In fact Bob Rock mentioned that he even didn't want his guitars going through the mix bus comp on the black album so Bob had to group the drums vocals and bass and route the guitars to their own uncompressed bus.

    Schematic for Jose Build

    FourT6and2, I own one of your custom Jose builds and it's a stellar amp. A mean machine with a bad attitude, sounds like it needs anger management. Your work is exceptional (y)
