    My Trademark 50 & Trademark 10 are my 2 favorite amps. They did the whole modeling thing before it was digital.

    The old Johnson amps were good. I have a J-Station and that gets a great Marshall stack tone. I like it better than my Marshall!

    I forgot about the Yammy's. Which is funny since I own a Fifty410. Killer amp. Just too heavy to move.

    Are you sure about that? According to Michael Wagener, who produced Under Lock and Key, this is what was George's setup in the studio. His post about it is here, https://www.gearslutz.com/board/high...ynch-tone.html, but I quoted it below.

    "Obviously George's tone is coming from the way he plays, out of his hands, but since you asked:

    The setup for George's guitar tone on "Under Lock And Key" was as follows:
    We had two Marshall heads and two Laney heads, not sure which models, but one of them was a Plexi. We had cabs in three different rooms: two cabs were placed in the big room at Amigo, one connected to a Marshall, the other connected to the Laney. The Marshall was responsible for the high end part of the sound and the Laney was set to take care of the low end. There were 14 (fourteen) mics set up in that room in various psoitions around the cabinet and some further away to get some room tone. The second Laney was sent into a very dead room and had a Boss chorus pedal in front of it, set to very slight chorus. The second Marshall was sent into a small, tiled bathroom, to add a different room tone. Those 16 mics came in on the MCI 500 console mic pres. They were bussed to one bus and that bus had a Urei 530 EQ on it (best guitar EQ ever). George mentioned that he always gets a great tone with his Fostex 4track recorder when it's in total overdrive, so I asked him to bring it in. So after the 530 everything was sent to the Fostex 4track, which lived under a packing blanket under the console, so nobody would see it. The Fostex was on stunn, completely overdriven and was sent on to the 3M 32 track dig machine from there.

    No, I am NOT kidding!!!"
    As for Invasion of Your Privacy and Dirt, I can't argue there but Invasion sounds more like a hot-rodded Plexi to me. The Rockman had a very distinct way of coloring the tone and to me, some dynamics would get lost. When I think of a Rockman, I think of Boston and that's the tone I heard from anybody else using one.

    He did, at least, have some Rockman gear in his recording rack at the time:

    The comments do not match up the photo, though: that is not a Distortion Generator but a Sustainor.

    The Fender M80s are fantastic. Greg Howe has been known to use one. They can be found on the cheap and are great sounding loud amps.

    Yup. I have one too. I love the Blackface and acoustic settings. Killer clean tone. My friend liked it so much, he snagged one too.
