    I always wondered the same thing- how does he do that?
    I think he must have used some sort of eq pedal and boosted some evil mid frequency maybe? Whatever he did I love it. These are my faves>

      Maybe it's my speakers, but I just hear a fuzz pedal. Humbuckers through a fuzz face can get heavy like that. Maybe an old Muff.

      It's gonna sounds heavier than a Marshall, that's how fuzz is.

        I used to have a weird solid state combo amp that was made in the 70s called a 'Londoner'. It had imputs for the whole band- sort of a 'pub amp'.
        Anyway it had a twist dial doodah that had 6 different filter settings on it and one of them I swear sounded like TGW.
        When we played gigs in those days the other bands would laugh at my ****************ty amp while they were wheeling in their Marshalls but when I powered that ****************er on they **************** their pants
        Anyway I'm guessing that sound is pure solid state.

          i've wondered it's perhaps a muff myself. my brother and i have speculated over this for years and come to the conclusion that TGW does in fact not play with any distortion whatsoever. he plays clean and the sound we hear is just his 'hand tone'.

                Oh, right, sorry. Guitar tone isn't mind-blowing either.

                      So what's the secret? Recto? Did they exist then?


                      No recto. It was an Ibanez Iceman into a Marshall 2203, tubescreamer. Same thing they used when they were Hellhammer, same thing they used on Monotheist. Oh and a wah for the, uh, leads

                      One of the things I love about Frost is that they came up with an original sound even though they weren't excellent musicians (by their own admission). I'll take that over the Dream Theaters of the world.

                        Troof. A gnarly, nasty guitar tone that complements the music so well. Love the guitar "solos" too.
