In the video below, KORN guitarist Brian “Head” Welch shares his thoughts about using his Orange Rockerverb 100 MKIII amp on tour and in the studio.
Welch, one of the driving forces behind KORN‘s sound, uses the Rockerverb to create, in his own words, a “buttery” clean tone. He will be taking his Orange Rockerverb with him on the upcoming KORN tour, playing sold-out Los Angeles dates in March before touring Europe, followed by South and North America this spring. He also used his Rockerverb in the studio on the latest KORN album, “The Serenity Of Suffering”, released last fall.
In the video, Welch, who has been using a Rockerverb for years, recalls that following his use of an Orange amp in a studio back in the mid-’90s, he has always mixed the Orange tone into his music. Since then, there has been an Orange amp in every studio he has recorded in — for the last 23 years! Welch explains: “One of the reasons I started using the Orange Rockerverb MKIII live is because I was able to get such a smooth tone from my clean channel on classic KORN songs like ‘Falling Away From Me’ and ‘Here To Stay’.”
“The Serenity Of Suffering” came out at the end of October. The track “A Different World” features a guest appearance from SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor.
