How much of the crunch and distorted sounds are the Soldano X88, and how much are the reamped Marshalls? ( I love the semi clean/crunch in the beginning of I’m Buzzed)
Will a SLO get close to these sounds?

I posted the gear once before*, pretty sure non of it was an X88
it was a Jose Marshall and some other Marshalls. He didnt do racks on that.
*Red. The thread in mention is nowhere to be found although I seem to remember it as well. The old board perhaps?

Are you sure Suhr? ‘Cause on the coversleeve, indeed you see a Marshall head, but it’s on top of a huge rack, stuffed with two Soldano poweramps, a Lexicon, an Eventide and something else….(no X88 indeed on that pic, so for a preamp….don’t know)

The Soldano was used on a few tunes
But it was mostly the Marshalls
The Intro, crunch & solo was a Jose mod ’70 100 watt Marshall through a vintage late ’60’s Marshall cab with 25 Greenbacks. No juice extractor on this one, I had it up pretty loud…
Floyd Rose Schector Strat with ’60’s Humbucker (not a PAF) “Judy”: Same as above but a different Strat, I think it was a Tyler Humbucker in the bridge…
I’m old, I cant remember…
This was definitely the purple Soldano pre amp with the VHT power amp through newer Marshall cabs w/vintage 30’s…
Same as “I’m Buzzed”
Same as “Johnny Swing”
Definitely the Jose Marshall, vintage cab, I used the Juice Extractor on the solo and into a Eventide 910 harmonizer (after the Juice Extractor) Schector Strat again…
“I Don’t Care”: ??? Probably the Jose Marshall again…
“My Bulbous Meathead”
This was definitely the Jose Marshall through the Vintage 4×12 with the juice extractor, I used a PCM 42 for delay after the Juice Extractor…
I used a “Rat” pedal back then too, sometimes a “Tube Screamer”…
I guess it was mostly that Jose Marshall, cool…
