Hi All,

I have seen nobody post about Pata's equipment settings yet, so I decided to ask around if anyone know the gears and pedals and picks he used. I only know he used his gibson les pauls and Hiwatt amplifiers though.

Pata Used a Roland JC-120 and i think he uses Marshalls now. Get yourself a gibson 1959 reissue and a marshall and you are good to go.  :D

Pata's tone is really just your standard classic rock tone, with a lot of overdrive. The difference between him and hide was Pata had a better technique and hide had a better sound.

o.. a lot of overdrive.yeap....pata's tone is always the standard classic rock tone but his sound from his 1959 les paul has always so much warmth in it and not as sharp which is nice. in his RA:IN days recently though, he used a wah wah pedal for some of his songs.

AFAIK Pata used Roland JC-120 early in his career and then shifted to Marshall plexi which he still uses today. He also used Peavy and Hi-Watt amps sometimes along with Metaltronix cabs for a while but shifted back to Plexi and marshall superlead series amps again. He also utilized a digital modelling preamp for a while but he no longer uses it. As for cabs he earlier used peavy and metaltronix cabs but later shifted to old marshalls (jeez this dude is obsessed with marhsalls lol ;D). Early in the career he mainly used 2 channels, one clean and one overdriven and crunched up (judging from the tone it was probably boosted by some boss od or ibanez tube screamer) and as of now he uses a single stomp multi effects unit and Vox wah pedals.

Hey bro,

sorry for kept you waiting this long. There you go:

This one is from BLUE BLOOD



...and Jealousy



and this one is from Dahlia. But I'm not 100% sure if this is for PATA, hide or something totally different. I'm sure it is something acoustic related but... Well, I just thought, I post it here too  :)

the pictures are from 3 books

They are the Scorebooks from each album. I also have Vanishing Vision and X Singles, but I couldn't find any useful information in that for our topic  ;) ;)
