My long over due thread that compiles these artists. When Bulletrocks522 was still with us he helped me compile this list. I've been keeping a Blog with this list that I can now delete

I am personally a fan of tube amps but it is still a good reference point. This is NOT stating that these artists ONLY use these amps, but merely that they have at one point or another used a:

Solid State or DSP Modeler or MFX-power or Hybrid amp for either recording or gigging.


For example, if an artist shows up on an Artists Page on a manufacturer web site I may ask for more proof. That is more part of the 'endorsement' marketing thing. I realize a lot of the list below does not have proof either but you know what I'm talking about. Trivium is a good example. They talk up the Vypyrs but as far as I know they have never used them for a live show nor in the studio on an album. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Practice amps don't really count either.

I have to rely on the word of fellow UG'rs as I am not going to go look all of these up.

If anyone has any additions or clarification - please fire away.





Also, for those that don't know - I didn't just create this list on my own because I was bored. It is mk III for a reason. This list has been out a while here on UG it just happens to now be in a thread that I can control/edit.

Wayne Static used an MG?
X.X

Quote by Wayne Static

I love the old MG100RCD head but the new MG100HDFX is even better - it has a bigger, tighter low-end and even more gain, making it perfect for the crunchy, detuned rhythms I do. The 'magic button' (the FDD switch), is a big selling point as well - it allows the HDFX to sound great at any volume because it maintains tightness and bite. The built-in effects are nice too, they sound great and it's really easy to dial them in.

yup... I think he does!

Well, if we're counting Axe-FX and other pre amps as well there's quite a few to add. Marty Friedman, Jeff Loomis, Chris Broderick, and Steve Vai all use/ have used Axe-FXs. Also, Dave Mustaine has used various modellers such as custom ones from Line 6 and the Rocktron Prophesy (pretty sure Herman Li also uses one too).

How did you find out that Trent Reznor used Vettas? I've been trying to figure out any info at all over the years about what kind of gear he has used, and I have been able to find nothing. I've seen a studio pic of a pedalboard that had roughly 100 pedals on it, but nothing in the way of amps at all.

Well, he did use them for sure (not sure about nowadays). He's listed on the line6.com artist section and I read an interview some while ago, in which he said he's using the Vettas.

I'd just like to mention that I think these lists would really be a lot more helpful if we knew when they used them. Some of them have it, but I really think before we say "This artist liked solid-state", we ought to say when and whether or not they liked it and/or sounded any good.

Just for example, Pete Townshend used Vox Super-Beatles on the first Who tours of the US in '67, but he said he hated them. You could put him up, but it'd be misleading to list him without the rest of the info.

True, but if you want to know more you should just do your own research anyway. The idea here is just so that when tube elitists say 'pros only use tube amps, solid state is for little kids' we can just link this thread. Its not intended to be the end all be all of SS amp users.

I suppose that's a fair point. Anyway, so I'm not just walking in and telling you guys that I think the thread needs a change, here are some contributions.

As above, Pete Townshend - Vox Super-Beatles
Mark Morton(Lamb of God) - Peavey ReValver(I know it's for amps, but as some modeling systems are listed in addition to modeler amps, I figured this can work)
Devin Townshend - Also ReValver
Whatshisname from Trivium - Peavey Vypyrs
And to add to John Petrucci, according to his Facebook, he's been messing with Axe-fx and a Zoom H4N in-studio lately.

Dan Donegan (Disturbed) and Greg Tribbett (Mudvayne) both used Randall solid-state / hybrid amps in the past.
Not sure about Disturbed, but the guy from Mudvayne used a V2 or T2, which are quite similar and both hybrid amps.
Scott Ian also uses the V2.

What tubetimedan said basically. It has been enough just keeping the list up to date. . Luckily a big chunk of the list is done so there won't be a wading through of 5 pages of rec's....or will there

I do encourage the interaction and clarifications so if any thing this thread will prosper as such.

I don't know if using a Roland with a talk box counts but we'll see. Also not sure how to handle the Santana thing either. I mean he did crank out some memorable stuff on stage at woodstock whether they were his amps or not.

Can we denote the players who have only used an SS once or only for a short period of their careers with a "*"? I mean, Jimmy Page only used a Super Beetle for a short while at the start of Zeppelin, we all know him for his Marshall and Supro tones.

While BB King's name gets thrown around a lot about being a blues guy who uses SS, lets face it; his best albums were recorded with Blackface Deluxes. I saw him live more recently and while his tone wasn't awful, it didn't sound as nice as his stuff from the 60's like Live at the Regal or Indianola Mississippi Seeds.

Now that is one I probably would not count. Nothing live nor music produced -like for an album- that I am aware of.

I'll update the OP later with some more clarifications as well.

i use SS. i am an artist, i think.

i use hybrids, solid states and tube amps. it makes complete sense to me, i grab the combination of amps that gets me my tone. i don't really have a preference to tube, hybrid or SS; i just pick the amp(s) that'll get me my tone.
punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.

Some specifics on Dimebag Darrell: Randall RG100es, RG100HT, Century-200, and one or two others.

Scott Ian uses a Randall V2.

Ben Moody (Evanescence) - Line 6 HD147
Ed O'Brien (Radiohead) - Line 6 Vetta II
CJ Pierce (Drowning Pool) - Randall VMax
Pepper Keenan (Down) - Randall SS amps

AFAIK


EDIT: Forgot to mention that Billy Corgan, Matt Sweeney, and David Pajo (guitarists for Zwan) occasionally all used Line 6 Vetta I's for smaller live performances.

QOTSA entry says Ampeg VT-22, which is a valve amp. A quick search says it's just the combo version of the V4 head that Josh Homme has used a hell of a lot.
