studios have monitors in the control room so he can hear what he is playing just fine. Yes I know that, put the amount of wire and equipment used to connect a guitar player sitting in a control room to an amp sitting in another room must cause a very slight latency or descrepency in sound. There is...

I know that the Green Meanie Charvel was used for just about all of it. I dont think he was using the Carvin X100B, I have one, and while it does the Flex-Able tone, it doesnt' do a very good Eat Em and Smile tone. The Peavey JSX does a pretty nice Eat Em and Smile tone, not as good though Doesn't ...

The trick with the DS-1 is setting tone control. Most people I see have the tone between 12oclock and five oclock. Really bright and grainy. It needs to be in the 9-10 oclock position. Its at least usable in that postion. I picked that up from old pics of Satch's pedal in a guitar rag years ago. Als...

Then clearly you don't use half the volume you think you do. Dime out your plexi, they'll cry.

I'm kind of surprised he uses V30's. They can suffer from some pretty nasty cone cry at volume.

Thanks for the comments. I am familiar with recording cabs and what the standard tools are. Steve appeared to be using something out of the ordinary which is why I was curious what they were. Apparently its an X file mystery. Thats cool. I'm sure its out there somewhere.

MIcrophones

What mics did Steve use on the Astoria recording? I couldn't see then clearly enough to tell. Are those typical on his studio recordings as well?
