I could be wrong, but I know Andy favored GK amps at the time.

They might have been Metaltronix? Not sure if this is to early since they were used on The Eye.

King of the Rotten is right. I was referring to the Gallien Krueger amps Andy was using at the time.

And I think he used the BC Rich Assassin back then, but I am not sure.

By the looks of their live shows from the time i would say Gunslinger or Assassin as well. But those models are quite alot looking like eachother imo

ALL I KNOW IS THAT "THEM" IS IN MY TOP 3 ALBUMS OF ALL TIME. THE SOUND IS SO KILLER AND HARD. THE CRUNCH AND SPEED SOUNDS CAME OUT PERFECT! THE DRUMS ARE ONE OF THE GREATEST DRUM PERFORMANCES IN MUSIC HISTORY. KING SOUNDS THE BEST ON THIS ALBUM. HIS VOICE IS SO FUCKING POWERFUL AND ITS A VOCAL HISTORICAL MASTERPIECE!  :king:

Andy play a BC Rich and Pete a Hammer, don't remember model's name, very close to a Jackson Kelly body on red and black.

Not shure about the Amps, but I hear EL34 everywhere !!!!
