So it's past midnight and I've decided to let my boredom out on the recording forum.
I decided to record the same guitar riff 4 times (8 really, but that's a double-tracking technicality) and run them through 4 different amp tones.
They all have slightly different origins, but all the same concept.

If you can identify them through some crappy late night playing and Soundcloud compression, you get 1 fake internet point for every one you get right.
Bonus points for if you can guess the particular amp on top of the way of recording

Even moar bonus pointz if you can guess which of them was used for each of these tracks:

https://soundcloud.com/corrosionmedia/fresh-start-sample-2 (The solo)

The riff was from Misha Mansoor's 'Breaking The Covenant' on a guitar with the wrong number of strings and EMGs.

Yes.

OK, I'll bite...

1) Peavey 6505 or similar (6505+, 5150, or XXX) although it could be some kind of Orange
2) this is hard - either Mark V or Engl although I can get that same exact sound on my Fallen Angel
3) Mesa Recto or it could be some kind of Marshall with mids taken out
4) EVH III or maybe Randall Diavlo

If it matters I liked #1 the best, hated #3, #4 was a bit too heavy on the mids but OK, #2 was too heavy on the lows but OK. MOst balanced I'd say was #1.

Jan 15 I'd guess #2 and #4

Personally, I was the opposite in that #3 and #4 are my favourites and I don't like 1 or 2 much. Too bassy for me. I prefer guitars to be far more crisp sounding.
You were however half correct about Jan 15 in that #4 is the tone (albeit wetter) used for the harmony'y bits

#3 I wouldn't call crisp as it was darker sounding than #1 at least on headphones.

I suppose crisp isn't the right word. More defined than #2 at least.

I'll give you a clue. One of them is an HD500X running a Dual Rec sim.
