Hey there, I had a thread a while ago about sludge amps. In not in that band anymore, I formed another band and I play lead/rhythm guitar and I sing. We play a kind of music very similar to HIM. I think our band sounds like a mix of old school HIM and Old School Alice In Chains. I was wondering what amps or stuff would help me get the sound I want. Something with a dark, nasty gain and a warm actually cleans. Thanks again! Oh, and just in case you know anything about this, whats my voice type? Baritone or Tenor? My range is A2-D5 and my voice kind of has this dark, bassy tone. Thanks!
