[b]... just Google 'Gibson Lightning Guitar Strap' and it'll find more.[/b]

This might not be the right place to ask this, but does anyone know what kind of guitar strap Albert uses? I'm talking about that red one with white lightening bolts on it. And maybe know where they are purchase-able?

Nick has started using a different distortion which I believe is a Vox Cooltron Bulldog Distortion a tremolo pedal and a Carr amplifier.

some i found in the forum

Gain at 3
Treble at 8
Mid at 4
Bass at 3
And just a hint of reverb at 2.5ish

Heres an e-mail Albert sent to a fan who asked this years ago,
i saved it to my p.c when i heard they were gonna mess around with the message board...

"hey man,

for my sound i use the green jekyll a lot drive at 9 oclock tone 5
oclock volume at midday....red is drived at 10.30 tone at 8 eq at 7
volume at 2 oclock

nicks distortion for the end has no end is amp distortion on the neck
pick up with the tone robe rolled all the way off...have fun if u have
any question write back

albert jr."

I know they both use a Visual sound Jekyll&Hyde, MXR Micro Amp and a Boss TU-2 and nick use this to :a Vox cooltron pedal bulldog distortion

Demeter TRM-1 Tremulator.

I'm definitely interested in knowing more about their gear.

2x12" Fender Hot Rod DeVille, used with Fender 4x12" extension cabinets during live shows. :D
same for Albert too.

oo. great topic.. happy to find that :)
yesterday i was wondering about Nick's guitar, and i found [url]http://www.epiphone.com/news.asp?NewsID=486[/url]

now i'm wondering about the amp ;)

totally agree

:D

I agree! I'm interested!!!

i'll agree to this one. i wasn't a member of the old board and have been waiting for this new one for such a long time.

i'm interested in knowing what gear they use on stage. i wonder if anyone will even read this.
