recording and sound secrets...I never heard about Legend hybrid amps but such one was responsible for the Eliminator tone

Yes, thanks for that. Very interesting.

"We did indeed use various guitars and amplifiers during this Deguello session and I employed for one of the first times during an album session, various mic's and mic placements for guitar. Billy had his Les Paul (Pearly Gates) of course, but also Strats, and some wild cheesy Japanese guitars." Tokai perhaps? :D

I had a Legend amp and it was great sounding WHEN IT WORKED. After fixing it for the third time I removed the totally unreliable chassis and kept the wonderful oak dovetail joined 1X12 cab. I have my Fender Pro JR mounted in the cab now with a Weber Minimass and it sounds great in it.
