I wouldn't count on Tom. He's notorious for remembering things like this wrong.

Tbh i don't buy that for one second. I remember what I used for all the recordings that I did. None were anywhere near as important as CC/DR and I'm a very dumb and veeeery forgetful pothead. In Toms mind he started making music in 2005.

Best we get Marks word. He actually loves the band and hence the fans

You don't have to buy it. It's true. Just watch the ernie ball doc.

 

Tom's techs have told someone I talk to on instagram that Tom doesn't remember a lot and doesn't really know anything about guitars. He just writes and plays.

You can make all the smartass remarks you want. I get my info right from someone who speaks to his tech, Jeff, often. Tom doesn't care to remember this stuff it seems. If he does really remember, he doesn't care to share it. Jeff is asked questions for Tom all the time regarding gear. Tom is now even aware via Jeff of people's interest in the sticker strat. It was mentioned it may get sold.

 

It's one thing to disagree. That's fine. It's another thing to be a smartass about it.

Calm your tits. I'd rather be a smartass than a dumbass about it.

We're of the same ilk here, no need to be aggressive,  it's all in good fun. like i said, if this was a real/physical place we'd all have a good laugh about it all.

I buy this. After all, the man still uses a single pickup guitar equipped with a Dirty Fingers humbucker run through a VOX amp and flanger effects lol.

The man had some killer live sounds.  And a good guitar sound is one avec tout le flange

Some people just don't care about this kind of stuff though and it isn't worth remembering to them. I couldn't tell you a damn thing about the equipment I used in any of my early years of bands, even if they had been worth listening to or scored me a modicum of fame.

He did have some good live sounds, I still love his enema-toypaj tone as one of my favorite all time tones...something about that invader ran through a Mesa boogie ❤️

You're the one being aggressive. I haven't insulted anyone. I'm sharing information that is coming straight from Tom's current tech. You can choose to believe it or not.

If he can hand him a tuned guitar then by all means, tight butthole.blakeandersonap.jpg

Found this super rare picture of Tom during the Cheshire Cat recording sessions!

[picture removed]

This is one of the pics Mark shared with us on his Twitch subscriber channel on Mark's discord.

 

This is the same set of pics that shows the Ampeg VL-1002 in the studio. This is Doubletime Studios during the recording of Cheshire Cat.

 

We didn't post these here because Mark only shares them on the subscriber channel so I wonder who leaked it.

Thank you so much for the clarification, I've removed the picture for the reasons above and in respect towards Mark's discord!

I think that I have the answer on who leaked it by the way
