say I like a guitar tone on a band's album (metalilca's master of puppets)

would it be a cheap and lame to use their guitar tone...in other words, would people instantly think of MoP's guitar tone when they hear it? Or, is this a somewhat common practice?


Orion's instrumental in particular. the tone i'm digging

Like really, guitar tone can make or break a song for me

Mastodon's cover's cover. Totally different feel, really. not as impactful imo
I wouldn't worry about it. Do whatever sounds best and I doubt anyone will care.

wait is that for sure the original guitar tracks of Orion

i've never heard the original song with just guitars. metallica had a facking amazing lead on that track, wow.
Good luck getting the exact tone. Also if you're not playing MoP they probably won't think of it.

Didn't you say that you had a stuffed fox that you would occasionally fuck?

Yeah, there are a shitload of variables that went into that tone, and I'm sure they even have trouble replicating it live perfectly.
modes are a social construct
It's a Mesa Mark III multi-tracked thru a ADA MP-1 pre-amp. I think Kirk's lead tone was tailored through a Marshall JCM 800 as well, but its mostly the Mark and the pre-amp.

Yeh. You aren't replicating that tone.
