Rig Rundown: Royal Thunder

The Atlanta quartet shows off the beer-soaked gear they use to create their haunting Southern pysch rock.

Josh is an amp guy. He has worked at Acorn Amplifiers out of Atlanta and genuinely enjoys investigating the guts of any tube amp he can get his hands on. He has his own handwired Acorn head that he’s been tweaking while off the road. Josh left it at home. For this tour, he opted for a Marshall 1987X 50-watt plexi. He removed the bright cap from the amp because it allows him to actually use the clean channel by giving him more headroom. The head powers a handwired Marshall 4x12 cabinet that has Celestion G12H 30W speakers.
