Sal Abruscato is a busy man. Not only was he a co-founder of Type O Negative and the drummer for Life Agony, but he’s also now the lead vocalist and guitarist for his new metal outfit, A Pale Horse Named Death. I recently caught up with Sal to discuss the key gear he uses to obtain his killer guitar sounds. Here’s how the conversation went and why Sal loves Orange Amps.
What one piece of gear do you use to obtain your signature sound?
Sal: I use Orange Amps.
What about it makes it so important to you?
Sal: The original mac daddy tone it has from the 70’s!
What are the major pros and cons?
Sal: All pros, no cons. It just has that classic tube sound that a lot of great bands started with.
How long have you had it, how do you use it, would you ever change it?
Sal: About a year, I use it balls out loud and no, I would not change it.
Any final thoughts or comments on the gear?
Sal: I am very privileged that Orange supports me and took me on as an artist.
