Geddy Lee's Amps
Lee uses an Orange AD200 MK3 (with one as backup) for amplification. The Rivera RockCrusher power attenuator provides a load for the amp, which drives a Palmer speaker simulator. The Orange runs with new-old-stock GE 6550 power tubes. "They have a little less warmth than the [JSC Svetlana] 'Winged Cs,' but they have more clarity and sparkle in the high end, which works better with the high-gain distortion we run the amp with," explains Lee’s tech, John "Skully" McIntosh. The signal path is detailed with the following image.
