“These are the amps that live over here in the UK and then when I come over they're here. The stuff I have at home is like old JCM800s from the 80s, really kinda expensive stuff. I only bring them on the road in the states.
“The top one is a JCM800 Lead Series reissue, a 100-watt tube amp. It has a really good rock 'n' roll kind of sound – the gain knob is at about one o'clock. It's got a pretty decent clean sound, too – clean enough for a live setting.
“Below that is the Kerry King JCM800 with KT88 tubes. It's a modified version of the amp above, but this has a real metal, super-Slayer sound to it. But even Slayer still have that 80s sound that I love. I try not to go too overboard with it though.
“One goes into Marshall cabinets, which have 20-watt hand-wired Greenback speakers – 20watt each, so a total of 160 with the full stack – and then there's two Orange cabinets, which I think are 30-watt Celestions in there, they sound great.
“I've been using Marshalls since the 80s. I've tried Orange heads, I've tried Diezel heads, I've tried Mesa/Boogie heads and they’ve all sounded good for a while, but somehow I always come back to Marshall.”
