Hi guys, jus wanted to get some opinions on some things, what would be a good setup to have if you were loking for say, a sort of tone simmilar to Cherub Rock, age of innocence, bleeding the orchid, By SP ? The sound of cherub is so thick, amazing & appealing to me, their elements of dream rock makes me wish i could go see them live back in the day playin all their oldies, not to rag on billies new stuff though i think Bleeding the orchid & Doomsday clock rock (although the lead vocals in doomsday clock kinda sound poorly recorded somehow) but aaanyway back on track, let me know your opinions :) thanks

This thread is probably better suited to GG&A, but I'll answer nonetheless.

JCM800 combo modded with KT88s in the power section. Fender Blender and Big Muff were used on Siamese Dream. Corgan was pretty famous for using a Strat with Red/Silver/Blue Lace Sensor pickups (B/M/N).

Punk forum probably isn't the best place for this thread.

Even if it was, we have an entire thread dedicated to these questions. If he asked there, I doubt many people would think twice about where it was posted.

I think he means their songs from when they first started.

Siamese Dream's cover just enforces the stereotype that every hot girl has an ugly sister.
