And bass-wise?

Actually I think you can find both my dream tones (guitar and bass) in Sweating Bullets by Megadeth. Also worth mentioning (bass-wise, since I'm a bassist) Tim Commerford's (Rage Against the Machine) tone on Bullet in the Head, or Justin Chancellor's (Tool) tone on Jambi.

What about you?

I'd have to say from a guitar amp the first time I heard the Fireball 100W I damn well near had a mental orgasm and one in my pants. In terms of bands..Dark Angel. Their tone is so ****ing saturated with distortion and the scooped mids makes me wanna ****ing jizz all over the place, ESPECIALLY when you hear them live.

Bass wise? Eh..DiGiorgio stuff really.
Brown sound, by far.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.
the tone misha mansoor has on the guitars in all new materials.
High Templar of the UG Secret Society
PM SickMetal or Sanitarium24 to join.
Loveless, being one.

Another is Burzum's Filosofem
Also the oldschool Swedish DM tone
My tone

I love Jon Schaffer's tone in Iced Earth, especially the Framing Armageddon album. I'm also very fond of The Deil Wears Prada's tone, despite the hate they get I enjoy them, and especially the tone on With Roots Above And Branches Below.
best bass tone? The Pot by Tool.
best guitar tone? between Colony of Birchmen by Mastodon and Perfect Weapon by Black Veil Brides.
Soloing I'd easily say David Gilmour or Mark Knopfler's Les Paul.
Rhythm wise I'd say Izzy Stradlin'
Guthrie Govan, really nice tone he has with those Cornford amps. Not the best i've heard but it comes to mind.
Any Fuzzy stoner rock/metal tone. More specifically Matt Bellamy's Fuzz Factory tone.

Oh also, Josh Homme's fuzzy octave sound.

Josh Homme's tone in his live Spinning in the Daffodils extended intro... So good. Also Dean Fertita's tone in Dead Weather on his guitars, but also on some other sh*t he plays. Never noticed bass tone as much because I'm fairly new to the gear side of things, but I love Roger Waters bass tone in Live In Pompeii.

that joke regarding your username was NOT originally posted by blake1221. That was a Gunpowder original.

It depends, because i have a wide variety in taste. For like cleaner stuff or rock it's John Frusciante, it's really basic and i'm sure half his tone is in how he plays, but i love it. If its distorted hard rock tone i'm a big fan of Slash's tone, not too clean but not overly distorted either. For metal? I don't know.. I'd say Zakk Wylde but his tone changes every 2 weeks for better or worse. Really like the bassy crunch of Machine Head though

Not sure about my favorite bass tone and I'm a bassist.

Click on my sig, I've created my dream tone for solos, still working on the rythm though
I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.
For guitar:

- Baroness's Blue Record (whole album)
- Converge's No Heroes and Axe to Fall (whole albums)
- The Fall of Troy's Doppelganger (whole album)
- Gojira's From Mars to Sirius (more specifically Ocean Planet and From Mars)
- Mastodon's Leviathan (whole album)

I could go on but I'll stop it there.

For bass... I dunno:

- Gallows' Orchestra of Wolves
- Primus's Lacquer Head, My Name is Mud, etc.
- QOTSA's Mexicola
Are we talking live??

As I Lay Dying
Rob Zombie

They take the cake.

Album wise
Every Time I Die

Really good tone on records IMO!

His tone in Pride and Glory was his best ever.
I've gotta say Gilmour. Seriously, Comfortably Numb makes me rock hard.

Intro to Eriatarka by The Mars Volta. It combines my love of echoes, delays, and ring modulator. Makes me perfectly happy. I think there is also some kind of filter in there, but I'm not positive.
Quote by vintage x metal
I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
Gotta go the fanboy route here... David Gilmour's tone when he plays the Mother solo. That sound is from beyond heaven.

A very close second has got to be For the Love of God by Stave Vai. That song sends shivers down my spine every time.
HAHA, no seriously. What DO you use a signature for?
Joe Lally - Waiting Room (Fugazi)
Bruce Foxton - Down in the tube station at midnight (The Jam)

Keith Richards - Gimmie Shelter (The Rolling Stones)
Joe Santiago- Crackity Jones (Pixies)
Best tone on an electric guitar that I have ever heard must be the intro to La Vereda De La Puerta De Atrás of Extremoduro (Check it out, dudes) and acoustic will be Wish You Were Here (we all know who´s that is) and bass tone I gotta say Smoke On The Water.
- Gibson SG Standard
- Lag Roxane 500
- Eastwood Hi-Flyer

I have a couple. Defiantly Born of Osiris and the Ghost Inside. I'm a huge rhythm freak, and I love the tone their guitarists have. I remember I used to have the biggest boner for Lamb of God's guitar tone.
