Simply out of curiosity, what gear could I use to get the kind of sound from Buckethead's song, "The Hand"

I don't have any real price range in mind, but something in the average musician's price range.

If you haven't heard the song, "The Hand", here is a link to the music via Youtube.

EDIT: To be specific, I am looking to get the guitar part that starts at 0:34

Damn. that is a kick ass tone.

My thoughts exactly. I thought it almost too good to be real so I wanted to know if anyone knew how to get that tone.

I'm pretty sure buckethead uses a jcm 800 for his more basic distorted tones. That's probably a jcm 800 with some kind of OD pedal in front boosting it.

Doesn't he have a Mesa Dual Rectifier too?

Probably, he's got all sorts of goodies.

Although, I think your suggestion would be more probable. From what I hear, the Mesa has a little more 'crunch', and the tone in this song is a bit smoother. If you can really describe metal distortion as 'smooth'.

I've always though of mesa as being more liquid and marshalls to be more crunch (they practically invented crunch) Though I must say my f-30 can do both quit well.
