Way outta left field! Orgy's amps on Candyass?

Recommended Posts

I'm a Big big big big big Rough Cutt/Amir/Orgy/Etc fan.. but I've never known what amps were used on the first album? I'm guessing Mesa's , since they're in tight with J. Davis and the rest of the crew from KoRn, as well as Deadsy (I know Elijah uses a Dual Recto..or used to at least).

 

Anyone know anything? as always, much appreciated.

I read in the effects forum that big Blue Monday guitar tone was this Boss Fuzz pedal on it's scoopy setting...

Ya know, I used to know this..... I forgot though. I still love that CD though. I used to listen to it non-stop.

 

The tone sounds horrible for the most part to me, but at the same time, it's perfect for them. I like Amir's synth sounds a lot though.

Yeah, the guitar tone isnt exactly something you'd want for everyday use.. its kinda Orgy specific.. I love love love the song Gender.

Man, I just realized how fuzzy that tone is, that's insane. Back when that song came out, I didn't even play guitar. It's weird to go back and listen to suff like that now, and all I listen to is the tone.

Very acurate set-up when compaired to his online website's gear notes:

And Ryan Shuck, who I believe was responsible for most of the heavier distortion sounds:

Was a huge fan of the Candyass album... listened to Vapor Transmissions and dug a couple of tracks, and never got around to listening to their third album released a couple years back.

He's HUGE on synth's, so really that's what his whole rig is. It's not really guitar as we know it, at that point. The guitar turns into a MIDI input interface. I don't think he does much, guitar>normal pickup>amp recordings. It's mostly Guitar>Synth Pickup>Synth>Pedal>Pedal>Synth>Synth>Pedal>Synth>Synth>Pedal>Pedal>Synth>Board recordings I think. :)

 

Well maybe not that bad, but it's mostly the synth you are hearing, with little of the conventional pickup feeding the amp. Probably like 75-25 mix.

Nu metal guitarists usually have huge tone, because they just play power chords, nothing else...ever. They don't have to worry about dialing in a tight clear tone for riffing, or a lead tone at all, just a massive thick tone for strumming power chords. {censored}ers.

He actually does a lot of direct guitar>pedal>board stuff too. Says thats how he uses his Ibanez Super Metal most of the time... which was used on the Orgy recordings.
