    here's a couple of questions about the 5150 record.

    Drums seems to have often a very strange sound, some of them seems almost electronic (toms and kick drum). Did alex use some special gear?
    Anybody knows that??

    One more:
    on "get up" there are some strange noises:
    for example just before ed's solo. I think those were made with guitar (just like the beginning of "beat it"), but on the beginning on the left side if you listen carefully (try with headphones) you can hear a sound that to me seems a hairdryer.... I'm not mad... what sound is that??

    Alex used Simmons electronic drums on the 5150 album.

    Not sure about Get Up, but Ed did use a Steinberger GL-2T guitar on the song. I'm interested to listen to it again to hear this hairdryer sound you're hearing.

    Just listened to it. I can definately hear something, but I can't make out what it is. Hopefully somebody with better ears than me can give us some insight.

    Sounds like feedback, getting that 'wobbly' sound from the trem. IMHO.
