I have always appreciated King’s X, but they have become my favorite band. I have been a proponent of solid-state amps for a long time, especially Lab Series amps. I saw Ronnie Montrose and Gamma play at Old Chicago in the fall of 1979. Ronnie was using Lab Series amps and his tone was good, but not like Ty Tabor’s on the early King’s X albums. Part of the mix can be attributed to Doug Pinnick using what can be best described as a Chris Squire tone on steroids, but I would put the guitar tone up with the best of the best tube tones.
