The only guitar tone that I liked from Metallica was the Master of Puppets rhythm guitar tone. That's it. The rest of their tones are pure garbage.

Take a Mesa Triaxis, pair it with a Marshall Mono-Bloc 100/100, tweek, and there you go.

Very much disagree with this statement. The Load/Reload and Garage tones are superb.

Metallica have had a great range of tones across all their albums. imo

It's cool if you don't like their tones, but I would never call their tone garbage. I think Ride is my fav album, but i go back and forth on that. I think they did some amazing work considering the shoestring budgets with time and money for the first few albums. They may have tried too hard on AJFA, but I love that one too. Load and Re-Load? maybe they shouldn't have made those albums under the Metallica brand, but I feel there is a lot of great stuff on those albums too. I think I like almost every song on Load... took a while to get used to though. I really like Death Magnetic. Suicide & Redemption. judas kiss.All nightmare long. The harmonies in the day that never comes... There is a lot of good parts on st anger, though I'd say these tones are my least fav. lot of good riffage.

"The signature Metallica sound until Justice was MK C+ with Marshalls"


Not really. James began to use boogie only with Master of puppets album and it's not really the original boogie sound. Before it was JCM 800 with either rat or OD808.

Quote:
"Since Justice the sound was created using: ADA mp1 ---> Dual rectifiers, combined with MK C+ and Diezel at different levels"


Will be hard, the first Batch of Dual Rectifiers started in 1992 (they were with Serial number R0001 to 500), Diezel in 1994 and the black album was out in mid-1991...

"Im a sound engeneer and have played with James and Kirk several times"


Well...

If I recall right, the rig James used on TBA tour was blending a IIC+ with his parametric EQ with the ADA MP-1 (which used the MQ-1) for his dirty sound. He blended a Mesa Studio Preamp with a Roland JC-120 for cleans, and everything (except the JC-120) was slaved into Mesa Strategy 400 power amps (even the IIC+).

From a rig diagram from one of the old guitar mags. I collected a lot of them. Metallica fanboy back in the day here, haha.

Thank you Silverwulf for this answer. Do you have other information like this about the sound of J. Hetfield during the recording of TBA ?

Thanks.
