Guitar tones, and what gear you're using to get them. Thoughts about each other's tones are encouraged.
I'll post something in a bit, sure.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
I'll play....


Not exactly - well, at all - thrash, but definitely 80's hair metal, if that counts. If I was doing a pre-200's-era Metallica thing, I would be totally happy with this sound, I would think.

Can't remember what guitar we used, but it was a Roland Cube amp using one of the model settings - rectifier or something maybe. We recorded each guitar (2 guitars) to two tracks - one with a mic and one through a DI for reamping later.

What you're hearing is four tracks, something like this:
1. Guitar 1 - JamUP Pro for iOS Randall Treadplate model (from the DI track) - panned about 80%L
2. Guitar 1 - Sennheiser MD421 - panned about 65%L
3. Guitar 2 - Shure SM57 - panned about 65% right
4. Guitar 2 - JamUP Pro for iOS Marhsall JCM800 model (from the DI track) - panned about 80% right.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

It does say heavy metal, which includes hair metal. Yeah, I meant guitar-only tracks, but the beginning gives enough. Even in the mix, it's quite apparent. I've read a lot of pro- comments about the Cube, but hadn't heard an example. Yours lives up to those comments.
