Swooshing Pink Floyd vibes, kerranging Sleep chugs, and mutating mellow Motorpsycho tones symbiotically swirl in this guitar duo’s growing setups.
Nick DiSalvo’s first tube amp was a Sound City 120. He was “told” that amp was modded to sound like a screaming Hiwatt DR103. (Spoiler: it didn’t.) Regardless, the initial misstep led him down a Hiwatt hole and now he uses a pair of ’70s Custom 50s in his European backline. (The Sound City 120 is part of his US setup.) The one shown here (and heard in the Rundown) is a 1974 model that Nick prefers because it has four inputs he jumps for increased gain and EQ possibilities.
