Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to get Kirk and James' tone on albums like "...And Justice For All", "Ride The Lightning", and "Master Of Puppets".

My rig is in my profile, and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sell one or two guitars and get a B-52 AT112 or an Ampeg VH140C.


Which do you prefer?

you play all those moderately expensive guitars through a single orange crush? i see your not much of an amp collector then.

if you can afford all that stuff, could you afford a recto? or one of Kirks signature randalls?

The Orange is my practice amp. My main is a Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue

How much is a recto or a kirk?

Get a Mesa Mark of some sort, for sure. IIC+ or III.
But the problem is the RTL tones were on a JCM800 with a TS.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

How would I convert those numbers to American dollars? If it's more than those, then I can't afford it

Jack try a Mesa Mark III. If I'm right, that's what Metallica used on Justice (I think they used a Mark IIC+ on Puppets?) and Black.
