Paul Gilbert intense rock settings

Can anyone give me a list of what Paul is using in the Intense Rock videos. Or just give me some amp settings that almost sound similar.

Pretty sure on that one he's using the ADA rig.. I think you can see it in some parts.

MP-1's are more eq' and chorus effects and hes definitely not using much chorus, if any at all.


All Im hearing is reverb, amp, and guitar on that intro solo O.o

ADA MP1 ! He shows the whole rig in the video(as Blackspy said) and didn't stop using them till mid to late 90,s,this video is 1989 if i remember correctly.

I swear by them.

You can turn the chorus off linux.

MP-1 is a pre-amp, with an analog chorus built in. At least the two I have are anyway.

Is it worth using the mp-1 into a nice, vintage marshall??? I dont understand the point of it I suppose.

Re: Paul Gilbert intense rock settings

Yeah, you can use the MP-1 into the power section of an amp bypassing the amps pre. Though I think that was more often used that way because of the lack of quality tube power amps back in the day when they first became popular. Either that, or it was just easier if you had a tube amp kicking around.

I use mine with an ADA power amp and it sounds great. You can get a pile of hot rodded Marshall tone out of it. It was built to sound like that, but of course it has its own sound really. Nothing is a vintage Marshall but a vintage Marshall. The MP-1 is a slightly different beast. Not better or worse, just different.

You can find em pretty cheap from time to time.

I have an MP-1 and a Peavey Classic 120 mono power amp (all rack stuff) and it sounds awesome! And I once broke an Ibanez guitar (neck joint cracked when I dropped it) because I couldn't keep up with Pablo).
