There's a certain distortion tone that I really like that I sometimes hear in songs. The only band I know of that does it consistently is Weezer but I also found it in a Sublime song (second link) . The only way I can describe it in words is "ripping".

Here is the Sublime example (Skip to 22 seconds)


Does anybody know how to get at least in the same ballpark, in regards to equipment, eq, production techniques, mic'ing, etc. ? Thanks in advance!

Yeah just sounds like a kinda loose-feel overdriven tubes (or valves, same thing) sound that you're after that you'll find in hundreds of valve amps across many brands.

a cranked carr amp was used on the weezer record for the distorto tones.
I realize. That I hate the sound of guitars

Not according to Ric Ocasek, who recorded the whole album. He said it was mostly a Mesa Mark 1 with the gain high and master volume low.
