    Like any of the bands like this a big loud tube amp with maybe a common overdrive pedal in front of it.

    At one point I had a pair of Peavey VTM 120's. Glorious sounding amps... when they worked.

    Both of mine burned up and died...:cry:

    It does sound good. He's probably playing the Nobels ODR-1 through an already distorted amp and not a clean amp to get those tones, right?

    Always thought bass amps on guitar were an ingredient in their sound, but I read that article circa loud love.

    VTMs FTW. You can use an 800 but it's not the same, the VTMs have more lows and grit, I love my VTM60. :love:

    If I was using a pedal I would look into the Amptweakers since it's the same designer from Peavey, Jim Brown.

    Bogner Burnley into clean amp. Done.

    I can nail those tones with my downtuned SG Std and Burnley into a clean Marshall stack with Greenbacks. Btw, Kim Thayil used V30s.

    Into what amp? Pedals sound different into different amps.

    Very true. I could get well close with a Butler (moderate dirt) into a Bassman (running clean), so long as I went with the right tuning for the song. The resonance varies much with different string tensions.

    Take a look at the Wampler Triple Wreck. Lots of low end in that pedal and tons of flexibility with the EQ.

    Terry Date produced those albums IIRC. He conjures legendary heaviness from any gear using sound recording techniques.

    You're probably not going to reproduce that sound with an amp and an overdrive pedal. (Kim used DOD BI-Fet boosts, which don't exactly distort on their own.)

    But, loud amps + detuned guitars = where it's at.

    Wampler Pinnacle. Andy from Tone Report/Reverb/Pro Guitar Shop does a great demo of it and Outshined is the first riff he does. Spot on.
