What kind of gear does Trey Azagthoth of Morbid Angel use ?

Yes, I´ve been trying to find out what that red pointy thing he is depicted with on the Altars Of Madness  album sleeve, in the booklet on the CD version, I guess.
And I came to wonder, ISN´T there some kind of search machine on the internet, where you can search on guitarst, and get gear and guitar info ?
If there isn´t, there really should be.
Still, the question remains, what kind of of gear and guitar did/does Trey use.

    I associate Azagtoth with BC Rich Ironbirds and Ibanez Universes.
    I have to admit I completely lost interest in the band after Blessed Are The Sick so my info is probably slightly out of date.
    Dean did some kind of sig for him as well.

    Gee, thanks, that was quick. Yes it looks like an Ironbird, the headstock shape put me off there.
    + 1.
    Maybe you should make that gear database I was talking about, huh ?

    There's this site: www.guitargeek.com

    Yes, I think it's an Ironbird with a reverse headstock (?):

    As for the database, the closest thing I've found so far is this one:

    See for example Tony Iommi's rig in 2001:

    but it's still a very incomplete database.

    Edit: the same link has just been posted above, sorry !

    Guitargeek is not very metal or hardrock minded. Plus it's a wiki format I think, so anyone can upload whatever they please (I could be mistaken here though)

    As for the headstock orientation : BC Rich have made so many variations on their models over the years, it's impossible to keep track.
    Maybe Venomboy has more background, he's our resident BC Rich afficionado.

    There´s also www.UberProAudio.com, which I have just discovered.

    Trey´s page:

    Yes, bc rich Ironbirds, but also Hamer, Charvel, Dean and Ibanez, and Jcm 900 dual reverbs.

    Have a Guitar World int with him somewhere. c. Covenant and I think he said he used Marshall 8100 VALVESTATES in places on that, alot of the death guys did actually.
  • AgrippaAgrippa Posts: 5,943
    Yes, I remember.
    There was a period when Terry Date (Pantera, Prong and others) was very popular in producing modern heavy guitar sounds, and he swore by transistor amps (valvestates among others), and shure SM58´s in front on the amps.
    Here they claim Trey uses JCM 900 dual reverbs.

    Actually I have seen em live at least three times, two of the occasions at small clubs, but I´ve always been too otherwise occupied (Women, Drinks, Beer, trying to stand up and stuff like that) to notice anything.
    I am new to Morbid Angels recorded output, but I actually is growing to like it better.
