Billie Joe's "Meat" Marshall
BJA's tech Hans Buscher describes that "the best way to run these amps and to get the most out of their mods is the set everything up at noon, and the master and gain controls at 10 o'clock because if you turn it up any louder than that or add any more gain it doesn't do anything but fizzle out the tone… plus Billie's tone isn't very high-gain because the majority of his dirt and aggression comes from his playing technique and pick attack. Pete is more of a vintage, classic rock tone and Meat is more of a '80s metal sound and when they're blended together you can get a lot of punch and impact." The two heads have been Armstrong's got-to amps since even before their iconic 'mud set' at Woodstock '94 performance. And for his clean tone, BJA uses a rackmount Custom Audio Electronics 3+ SE guitar tube preamp
