RIGGED: NILE’S KARL SANDERS | MetalSucks
this is interesting
Like all my guitars, the volume and tone knobs are bypassed yielding a much hotter and less cloudy tone. These 79 series V’s are war-horses; I take them on tour all over the planet. On the new record I used this guitar for many of the rhythm tracks.
interesting idea here as well:
05. Dean 79 “Nileville” V: You have heard this specialty axe on many older Nile songs but you might not be able to pinpoint it because it’s mixed very subtley. The guitar is in what I call “Nileville” tuning, because it is an octave higher than our normal tuning of Drop A. The guitar is set up in the same exact way my other guitars are (scalloped neck, brass nut , Seymour Duncan pickup straight-wired to jack) but I use it to make an EXACT one octave up unison layer of certain riffs. It’s mixed/blended with the normal guitars in such a way that you cant really necessarily hear the insidious evil higher octave consciously, but it lends melodic definition to the ultra-low drop tuning of our normal guitars. I got the idea years ago watching and listening to Bob Vigna of Immolation and his incredible octave guitar work.
^ used on the last album
30. My practice area downstairs: For when the family is asleep and I shouldn’t crank the Splawn/Marshall upstairs but still need to get those late night guitar hours in. Marshall Class 5 combo, Dean Black Gold ML, Black Star pedal (for when I occasionally need a bit of gain), metronome, Sebek Statue and Sarcophagus.
