One Question Interviews: Reunions

Eric Saylor (Reunions – guitar/vocals)

SPB: Can you walk us through your guitar gear?

Saylor: I have two pretty distinct setups I like to run; both are pretty basic. Most of the time I'll run my LTD EC-1000 into a Mesa DC-10 paired with an oversized Mesa 4x12. I've spent a lot of time in bands that tune real low and use a lot of gain so this is definitely a somewhat weird combo for what Reunions does. Most people associate Mesa with the Rectifier or Mark series amps but this really sits in a strange place in between the two of those. In my experience, it's a little closer to the Mark-IV but just not quite the same. It doesn't have that over-compressed thing I feel like Rectos do but still palm mutes super tight (which I use way too much) just in a more organic way if that makes sense. I love ESP's LTD series, they're way better than anything Epiphone and I think above a lot of Gibson branded stuff. People should overlook the metalcore association. Pickups in there are just pretty basic Duncan JBs if I'm remembering the last time I switched correctly. 

The other I like to use is an American Telecaster with a Bare Kunckle Pile Driver into an early 80's Peavey Rock Master with the same Mesa 4x12 because V30s are the best speaker and Mesa cabs are just my favorite I've ever used. I think there's something about being oversized that beefs everything up really nice too. This combo works really well for the more indie aspects Reunions but the Pile Driver's are a pretty hot tele pickup to still up the punx. When we record I really like to use these two together for all rhythm tracks."
