  • SOAD's new live guitar amp

    Anybody know which 2x12 combo it is that Daron Malakian of SOAD has been using live? Whatever it is it sounds really cool... good cleans, pretty great distortion.

      He's using a /13 ERT 33 with two /13 212's for the clean tones, Modded Marshall Super Leads (new ones..) for the OD tones live.

        I don't think he ever was using ModeFour, even though he was endorsing them.... it was usually a Mesa Dual Recto or two.

          Someone who saw him recently said he had a wah, delay, and Mesa foot controller on the floor.....

          ....I'll see if I can find the post.

              Here;

              "He uses a shure wireless system through a switcher, so that he can switch guitars, then it goes into a MIDI system that switches the heads from the divided by 13 cleanamp to the dirty Marshall Plexihead. Then theres a pedalboard that goes through the loop with a delay (Line 6), a flanger modulation, and a wah pedal (Fulltone)."

              - Kevin Zazzara, Daron's guitar tech.
              and here;

              I saw system live a few days ago. He's got a fulltone clyde wah and a mesa foot controller on stage, thats it. I'm also fairly sure the unknown amps on top of the marshall cabs are just 1x12" cabs, but I could be wrong.
              There was some debate on whether or not the 1x12s are /13's or not.....


              and I don't know how old this pic is, but his Recto's are still racked in it;

                    Unfortunately he only ever uses one or at the most 2 amps live. It used to be just Mesa Rectos now it's apparently /13's and Marshall Super Lead Plexis. All that other stuff is just studio layering, and I don't know if he even used all of it on records.

                      I read he was using a Bat Cat Amplifier on some of the previous records.

                              That's certainly a nice setup for a guitarist of his calibre
