I'm pretty sure that it's just dry through the amp Distortion for the most part..

He's got some really nice percussive pull offs going on though... Maybe possible that he's alternate picking it though

Throughout the album he used a mix of a Diezel VH4, Marshall Superbass, Bogner Uberschall, and Rivera KR7. Live, his higher gain tone comes primarily from a pair of VH4's.
Halikus, saying that it's with preamp distortion doesn't help much. In any case, 1, there's likely an element of power amp distortion. Also, basically any moderately high to high gain tone will involve preamp distortion. However, the tone used for that intro also has less gain than it initially seems like.

There is tonnes of poweramp thump in AJ's tone. The thickness in the Jambi opening riff is not from the preamp gain. That's just where the edge and crunch is coming from.

It's on the verge of distortion, like roll off your volume knob to clean it up when you are dialed into a heavy distortion, and palm mute. But you have to palm mute to give it that clean attack.

Of course theres going to be power amp distorsion but I made that comment to basically say you wont get there with a pedal so thats out of the question.

if your wondering what effects he uses through out the song: talk box, delay, and wah. you can do the solo with a wah and delay. i think he uses a foxx tone machine as well.
