Jim (might have the name wrong, but whichever one was in ATDI) has a Park amp head (http://www.rockometer.com), some kind of 4X12, and I think a Gibson semihollow body. He used to play a Gibson SG Jr. and an Orange head in ATDI. I don't know if he still uses the SG Jr., but I know he switched out the Orange head.

Just to answer this: Jim, Paul, and Tony of the late At the Drive-In went on to form Sparta with some other character named Matt. So, to answer your question, yes.

Omar, the other Guitarist from at the Drive In, was the one with a whole mess of pedals, and he also used an orange head. Do a google search on "Hell Paso", then checkl out the ATDI FAQ, Jim's Sparta gear could be similar to that.

Wait...they both had Orange heads? I thought one had a Dual Recto...

Whoops...Omar def. used the Orange head (check out the ATDI performance from Conan Obrien from some file swapping service, absolutely hilarious...they freak out, and Conan looks scared to greet them). Jim must use the Recto, and it sounds like he still does. When i saw them open for Weezer last summer, the other guitarist Paul looked like he was using a silverface fender (most likely twin ) and a les paul. Both guitarists also seem to use Boss digital delays.....hope this helps.

You sure about the Dual Recto? The little thing on them in Guitar World said he had a Park head. Maybe it's only for studio use, it would be pretty old by this point.

You might be dead on about the Park in the studio. I cant really see taking one of those on the road. My friend has a small one that his band uses as their practice PA, and that thing is constantly on the fritz.

Well, then, good sir (or madam), I believe we may have found our answers here. I guess it all depends on if you like Sparta's studio sound or live tone better.

I'm pretty sure his PARK head wasn't the same as the solid-state Marshall "Junior" amps that came out in the 80s and 90s, older parks are excellent Plexi-style behemoths. Pretty rare.

Yeah, I've been looking for one of the 100 watt heads, just to try out and see if I like it.
