Since years i want to get the QOTSA tone from the first album. Especially Regular John and Avon are my benchmark tones that i want to achieve. I assume this an Ampeg VT-22 with an OD pedal. The "american" tone of the ampeg does play a big role and maybe the speakers too. So is it possible to achieve that kind of sound with any other amp? The closest was maybe an Hiwatt with a dark fuzz, but it didnt sound the same. Of course the Hiwatt is british. What do you think? Is there a way around an ampeg? Cant find one in Europe right now.
