No pedals? I no my guitar and amps arent built for this style, but I cant dial in the tone at all. Kinda weak gain on them too.

James used a RAT distortion pedal back then.

Marshall JMP amp. (Metal panel plexi) modified by the same dude that did Van Halen's amp IIRC and a ProCo Rat pedal boosting the front end.

From a thread that was brought up awhile ago.

Quote by Junnage

Kill 'Em All: James' Jose Arrendondo modified Marshall 100 watt SLP head was used to record his parts. Live, he used a JMP 2203. He a Boss DF-2 Super Feedbacker* for his solos. He may have had an Ibanez Tubescreamer, but there is no way to be sure. He didn't mention it at all in one interview, but he did in another.

"...I used my black Flying V with an old '57 humbucker, which I've had for 12 years now. I plugged in through James' modified Marshall amp, mainly because we didn't have a lot of equipment at that time. I also used a Boss Distortion pedal." -Kirk Hammett, Guitar World, October 1991

"When I was doing that guitar solo, I was using James' Marshall. That was the Marshall-it had been hot rodded by some L.A. guy, the same guy who hot rodded Eddie Van Halen's Marshalls [Jose Arrendondo-MJF]-and when it came time to do my guitar leads, I just plugged into that...I had my trusy old Ibanez Tube Screamer, my trusty wah pedal, and my black Gibson Flying V that I used on the first four albums-it was either a '74 or a '78, I'm not sure." -Kirk Hammett, Guitar World, March 2002
