Quick Machine Head thrash riff, using a Vox (year 1965) 2x12 cab miked by a Royer 121 (a couple of inches back), with some post-EQ, all done in the Torpedo VB-101.
Schecter Hellraiser C1-FR (bridge pup : EMG81) -> Engl SE 6L6 -> Torpedo VB-101
Let me know what you think. I think it works well for a saturated modern thrash metal tone.
Disclaimer : sloppy playing and old tubes and old strings as always.
