I have a PRS CE-24 and a Line6 Spider Valve Halfstack with mesa cabinet and im looking to get that choppy reggae sound brad from sublime gets. I put the clean channel on with the built in reverb and doesnt quite sound like it. Anyone help me get this tone? Thanks.

Does the Spider Valve have a Roland Jazz Chorus mode?

I don't know much about Sublime, but for some reason I highly doubt he used a Recto.

yeah they didnt used rectos...he used jc chorus for cleans and a jcm800 for his dirt...and also that choppy clean sound has a lot to do with technique too

yeah ive seen live videos and its a triple rectifer alright. Hence the lyrics in one song, " Im a triple rectifieing ass son of a bitch"

alright I won't argue if it's in the lyrics and all that.

But regardless he probably used a JC-120 for cleans, and maybe the Triple Rec for distorted tones.

He probably got a Triple rec after he hit it. Probably bought the china white that ended him with the same check. I have a feeling he didn't use a triple rec his whole career since they weren't popular their whole career.

Edit: When I mean popular, I mean the band. Point being, they probably weren't raking in the cash to buy things like triple rectifiers. heroine is expensive don't cha know?

Also a good point.

The early Sublime records (everything up to their self-titled), Brad used Ibanez guitars (not sure which models) and a couple of custom built gats, a JCM800 and Roland JC120 run together (800 for gain, JC for clean). I know he used a Boss OS-2 from time to time, but not sure about the rest of his pedals.

For recording Sublime, some of the dirt parts were with a Recto, others with the JCM800. The JazzChorus was still used for cleans.

This is what I think (on the second part). I am 100% on the early stuff though.

Jazz Chorus and a JCM 800

With your amp. Set it clean. Use a short slap-back delay to get that reggae vibe.
