Discuss the band's gear

That oasis sound?

Tone is in the hands in my opinion. Noel has used countless amps live and in the studio. I couldn't begin to fathom how many amps he has used. There is a shot in the most recent Clash magazine where it shows well over a hundred amps in Noel's "Amp Room". Personally, I think amps are very important for getting a sound, and I think it will get you really close, but the last little bit is in your hands. My bandmates and I all own similar gear but we all sound different. Using their guitars and their amps I still retain my tone.

What I am saying is, you just can't buy a tone. You also have to work a little for it. Learn the nuances that Noel and Gem play with. Especially on Lyla and Turn Up the Sun as the thread creator mentioned. They played these songs well removed from Oasis turn it up and play days, which were also brilliant.
