No offense but I've never understood why someone would ask about Kirk Hammet's tone. He plays zero of the rhythm tracks that Metallica is known for... he only plays the leads. His lead tone is easy peazy. Lots of gain and reverb and wah.

Kirk hammet plays rythms since Some kind of monster (2003) in studio and always live.
I just collect settings of my favorite bands with recto (Korn, Metallica, Petrucci, Living Colour).

For kirk vintage = lead, Modern = rythms.

No offense but you are wrong on all counts here.
His Recto settings requested are for his LIVE rig. He doubles what James plays live and his rhythm tone is absolutely crushing if you've ever seen them.
For his lead tone he blends in his Triaxis and contrary to what people like to repeat, he uses very little gain and has a chewy, smooth lead tone with lots of mid range.

I saw Metallica the lat time thru ATL.

The tone was just amazing. The live production crew did a great job brining chest thumping bass and mids that cut.

For good rectifier tone, and me being more of a player than tweaker, I feel like the Recto sounds different and better up good and loud.

Low volume needs more treble to sound decent, then buzzes. Crank it up really loud, and the can of bees goes away as you back off the treble.

For a loud amp that sounds great in meal, rock... Hard to beat a recto IMO.

Crank it! Let Creeping Death slam forth!

For what it's worth, based on pics I've seen from the Load/Reload era, it appears that James has both Rev F and Rev G blackface Triple Recs, though I'm sure he sounds 99.9% the same through either.
