Hey i was wondering how metallica got their early sound like master of puppets, kill em all and ride the lightning i noe they used marshall but which model??
Well first of all you need EMG's, modded jcm with higher treb and a moded metal zone. Good luck in getting that.
not to mention they all used ESP's didn't they?

Fender Stratocaster Standard
Fender Twin Reverb II 105 Watts
Takamine EG-330 cutaway elec/acoustic
Ibanez Demon Wah Pedal
Various Effect Pedals
not in the early days, Gibsons and Jacksons were used ( Mustaine used a BcRich)
Orange Enthousiast.
Hammet used a Strat on alot of ride the lighting, but he also started to use ESP.(his own vee, and I think the begining of the KH series) Anyway, I think just a plain JCM800 should do. You really dont need all the mods to match their sound anyway. I use a Metal Zone pedal whenever I want to get their sounds.
oh ,I always thought they started using ESP's on AJFA album
Orange Enthousiast.
Yeah, that might have been when they started to use their Signature models, but I'm not sure. All I remember is when I saw Hammet using is vee at a concert in like 87', I think.
