Despite enjoying a bit of sonic hooliganism every now and then, Adrian explains that he mostly turns to low- wattage amps in the studio.
“I’m really into really small amps. I’ve got a Supro Thunderbolt: you know, the 15-inch ones? And I’ve actually sent that to Beth, because she needs something that she can play bass through in the studio and for a bit of American-sounding guitar. It’s a lovely amp, but it’s too loud for me in here. But I think little amps sound great. I’m really agonising over whether to get a Vox AC4, an original one. It’s just because you don’t have to be deafeningly loud to get tones out. Even my JMI is way too loud for in here, and it’s only 15 watts.”
