Zakk Wylde also used the Metaltronix M-1000 heads and 3 Lee Jackson Perfect Connection GP-1000 preamps with a single Perfect Connection SP-1000 power amp. Both setups used the Metaltronix 4×12 cabs. And according to Lee Jackson himself, Zakk also used a Aphex Aural Exciter with the GP-1000 to color his tone a bit by adding a “huge bottom end”.

He switched to 6550-loaded JCM800‘s after the No Rest for the Wicked Tour.
