I always liked the sound that Kim Thayil was able to running his Electra Dyne and Tremoverb in parallel (, so I pulled out my multi watt rectifier and my TC-50 and decided to see what I could come up with.


The TC-50 rig on the left has been what I've been using for gigging lately, and it works a lot better than I would have hoped. Petrucci was right, the slant 1x12 recto cabinets ARE stupid loud.

I used my Strymon Mobius to split the signal into two paths, sometimes dry, sometimes with stereo chorus to spread things out a little more.

Anyway, I was able to get some really good tones from this combination of amps:

1. TC-50 clean, Recto on Channel 2, Raw, gain about about 11 o'clock (based on what I saw from Thayil's tremoverb, in Blues mode with the gain at about the same level). Felt like I could play this all day.
2. TC-50 clean with delay, Recto on Channel 1 clean, no delay. Very nice
3. TC-50 on blue, medium gain, Recto still on Channel 2, Raw, gain at 11
4. Lots and lots of high gain stuff with the TC-50 on the red channel, recto in Vintage or Modern mode.
5. Lead playing with the same configuration as above, delay on for the TC-50, dry for the Recto.

Thayil said he kept a boost on all pretty much all the time, so I kept my OD-808 on for a lot of this and it all still sounded really good.

This was LOADS of fun.
