Alright if i was trying to get the sound of Alexi Laiho, from Children Of Bodom, and had everything but the Lee Jackson GP-1000 preamp and cannot find a GP-1000 for sale anywhere, which preamp or amp should I get? I hear that the ENGL 530 preamp is really close to the Lee Jackson except with more gain.

Thanks,
John

Thats just pointless.
You buy gear just to sound like him?

Just buy/try the ENGL.
I don't think you will be playing only Alexi's music anyway.

It's like every kid wanting EVH's brown sound back in the early 80's, you get over it sooner or later. But I have to agree with you that it is pointless to copy someone elses signature sound because when you do start looking for your own you'll probably end up wasting more money to get it.

Go to the Lee Jackson site and ask for a catalog. You should be able to order from that.

JCM 900 TSL for his live tones. Plus that **** he has in his guitar, those ****ty EMG Hz's or something, all I know is he uses a JCM 900 TSL in his live rig somewhere, maybe just as a power amp I don't know.

i tired to order from the catalog but they don't make them anymore. all they make now are like pedals and instructions on how to mod ****. and the preamp that esp makes is a booster for his guitar for solos... its a guitar preamp... but its a preamp booster yeah i have heard about the marshall but that was way back in the day before he got his custom esp, and yes he used it as a power amp. **** it i just gonna get the ENGL
#12
What are you gonna do with just a pre amp? You do realize you'd need a power amp as well right?

Alexi uses SD Blackouts now, not EMG HZ.

But i think that he still uses a Marshall (saw a couple of new videos with him on youtube where he played one)

If you have a crappy amp, buy a new amp, rather than a booster. It'll be better in the long run.

There is a JCM2000 TSL but the JCM900 is SLX isn't it? Not much of a Marshall person so I'm probably wrong.

This message goes in order from my last one to the first issue about the marshalls. i'm gonna play guitar with my preamp... yes i realize the power amp issue and i have a mesa poweramp. yeah but i prefer the emg-hz's compared to the blackouts. Yes he does use i marshall combined with his old rig, he uses the new kerry king jcmwhatever marshalls. he uses both on and off both marshall and vht. dude im not buying a booster... welll actually i am but that booster gets put into my guitar like a toogle switch on the guitar... im looking at a "new amp" like rack gear, its like the distortion and such. FUKK off Teh Forest King!!! I have my own tone.... i want something SIMILAR to alexi's rig, god damn I think he meant whatever model marshall is the triple super lead.

To the guys who are telling him to get his own tone, have you been to the Petrucci forums?
