Jim's Comments: "This pack is so cool!! We meticulously duplicated the tone used on the first two Racer X albums. If you've got the chops, you can sound just like Paul! If not, you can still sound like Paul playing rhythm (I'm in this group). ;-) Also included are our own profiles using our three favorite speakers for a wider range of great rock tones. No clean tones from these amps. These profiles sound HUGE!"
The amps used to make this pack were both formerly owned by legendary guitarist Paul Gilbert. One started life as a 1974 50W non-master volume Marshall and was brought to Lee Jackson for modification in 1985. The other a 1975 Super Lead brought to Lee in either 1985 or 86. The amps were used by Paul to record the first two Racer X albums, Street Lethal and Second Heat in 1986 and 1987, respectively. Check out the video below for much more detail and history.
