    does anyone know what guitar and amp was used for the first evanesence cd, and how many times it was doubled, and maybe even the mic and pre was used. That sound is amazing and thick.

    thanks peops

    thanks dude
  5. I like Evanesence alot. I also love that guitar sound too. I do not own any of their CD's, but the one song that was on the radio for so long with that really heavy "chun chun" sound killed me. (that "Save me" song)
    I loved it.
    One day on the internet I saw an endosement for the Hughes & Kettner WARP X. The guitarist they were endorsing for the release of this brand new amp was none other than Evanesence's guitarist. Sorry don't know his name
    Any way, he quit the band and Hughes & Kettner dropped him. And now have Paul Crook as one of their endorsee's.
    But back to Evanesence...I do not know if he used the H&K WARP X to record with but I bought one with the hopes of a super heavy sound like Evanesence. I am very happy with my WARP X.
    Did he record with the WARP X on the 1st CD?
    I do not know that to be true.
    Hope this helps

    Dude, if you want that extra chunky, really THICK sound.. get yourself a Mesa Boogie Single-Triple Rectifier.. In my opinion, that is THE amp for that really thick, crunchy tone. Another great amp for much less money is the B52 AT100.. I purchased one of these recently, and the sound is very comparable to the Mesa at about half the cost. But yeah.. get a Mesa if you can afford it.

    ONLY use a Mesa if you have the right guitar it match it. The guitarist in my band has one. It doesn't excactly sound the greatest with a Fender in my opinion. Not to mention I hate his pickups. The Mesa Triple rectifier is thick as hell. I've heard those and some peaveys paired with a sonic maximizer. Amazingly rich, thick tone. Just a suggestion/alternative if youre looking for a thick gutiar sound for recording
