I've been listening to Dream Evil lately and I'm completely in love with their tone, so I figured "once I get un-banned, I'll ask the all wise UG" so here I am, specifically their "Evilized" tone, what kind of amp and guitar would I need to achieve it?

the guitarist for them was gus g i believe?


Quintessence: Your background as a guitarist with training and schooling, etc. What sort of equipment do you abuse?

Gus G: I've been playing guitar since 1990. I was 10 years old then. I went to some local music school in Thessaloniki, Greece for about 4 years. When I was 16 I got a scholarship to attend Berklee college, which I did...........but only for 2 weeks!!! I decided to concentrate on building my own band and play heavy metal music. I guess the rest is known, pretty much. My equipment: I use Washburn CP 2003 guitars, Randall and Engl amps and DR strings.

ahh, thanks a lot dude, it was Gus G. but he left to join Firewind, and I knew it was a Randall or something in that league, I was able to get close with a PRS Singlecut, Gibson Les Paul Standard and a Vox ADVT50, but I didnt quite nail it, thanks man.

That must be a fairly old interview, as he has been using his ESP Gus G signature guitars for at least a year. He still plays Randalls, I know that for a fact because he's always pictured in their ads.
