2203-type with a moderate amount of break up, goosed with an Ibanez Tube King TK999US for solos, or an SD-1/Seymour 805 for crunch. EQ in the loop boosting the mids a bit, and a little delay on solos. In a pinch, just a basic SD-1 into a Marshall-esque amp.
It's either a Cantrell-ish/Friedman sound that I can clean up with the volume knob and a little delay/reverb, or a scooped JPIIC+/IV/5150 modern metal tone. The music I write is all all over the place under the rock/metal umbrella, so it depends on what I'm writing that day. Usually it's just whatever preset I used last in my AxeFX, really.
Got hurt in an accident little over a year ago and couldn’t play as fast or as long. My bud in the vid turned me onto sludge/doom and it was the perfect speed. Healed up now, but I still dig the tones.
Other shit includes an Orange Dual Dark, use the Pharaoh on chA, and then when I want boosted thrash I kick it to chB.
Seriously love this stuff, it’s the best my tones have ever been.
I like anything 5150 through a 4x12 with Greenbacks. Slight midscoop (those amps can get honky fast) and Resonance run high. Depending on the iteration of the 5150, I like a boost or not. Mostly not, especially with the III, but the II can get along without a boost as well.
I have really bonded with my 50 watt QR over the years. (Used to be a DEVOUT Mesa Mark-III player)
I have come to really dig the slightly stiffer, more articulate nature of the QR. 1st Gear, OD-2, Spark mini. Dispatch Master in the loop for a touch of verb + a single, quite repeat. Done.
