You're gonna want to look for a new amp. Maybe sell a guitar to fund it.

If I read correctly, he used to use the Lee Jackson pre-amp into a VHT Power amp (2-60-2?) but has now started to use the Kerry King JCM800. You should look into buying one of those, or just buy an old JCM800 and boost it.

Well he still uses the JCM800 2203KK, i hear he uses it live too, so you can obviously get a decent COB sound out of it - he does.

The most recent video i have seen of Alexi is where he is playing an ENGL Powerball, so i am getting mixed messages here, In the video an ENGL, the COB website says Lee Jackson with VHT, and people keep saying its JCM800KK, what the hell

Well i guess either would work, he manages to get a decent COB tone out of all of them, they might not be all identical, but close enough so nobody really notices much of a difference. And i dont know what pedals he uses but maybe they make up a large part of his tone too?

I think the overall moral of this thread is that you can pretty much buy any of the amps mentioned within and get a useable COB tone that Alexi himself would be proud of.

For the record, the Lee Jackson GP-1000 (which Alexi uses) isn't really a high gain preamp. There is a lot of midrange going on in that thing and the tone is fairly mellow. For what its worth, the one Laiho uses is based on a modded Marshall, so I would just get a JCM800 and boost it for a much more accessible COB tone.

Laiho says himself he doesn't use pedals because he likes to keep his rig simple.
In the past he's used the Lee Jackson Perfect Connection GP-1000 pre-amp run through various power amps. Not sure on an amp that replicates that tone.

Currently he still uses the GP-1000 but also uses the JCM800 2203KK.
On the JCM800 2203KK he uses the following settings:
Presence: 3
Bass: 7
Mids: 7.2
Treble: 6
Master: 3.5
Pre-amp Volume: 9
Gate: 8
Gain Boost: 5

Just thought I'd give you the settings he uses so you can try it out and not have to mess around looking for his tone.
Speed is a by-product of shut the fuck up.

They (alexi and roope) both have a SansAmp PSA-1 in their racks as a back-up to their GP-1000's. Seems to be an easier way to get a similar tone.
AMP:
5150 combo
GSP1101 + Tech 21 PE60

GUITARS:
ESP LTD M-255 w/ SD Full Shred
Kramer Vanguard w/ JE-1000 active preamp
Douglas WF-150sn w/ GFS "Hot Lead" set

EFFECTS:
Bos SD-1 (boost)

Just saw this.

yeah I think the AOR has more low mid that punches you in the gut. it's not as clear or articulate but definitely more "balls"

I got the 900 about 2 weeks ago.
