If SRV was alive today, what amp would he be playing?

Post by Aslan » Fri May 01, 2009 4:00 pm

SRV liked experimenting with different amp combinations, if he was alive today I think he might be playing a 65 Amp Royal Albert, this amp combines the tones of a Dumble (I actually got to play one once for about 2 hrs) and the best of Fender sounds. Tell what you think he would be playing.

His amp today would be one that let him install a bunch of 5751's in V1, V2, etc.

Hummm...a Tiny Terror would let him do that...

SLO-100.

Either that, or a vintage or signature Fender.

Les Paul -> Electric Amp 120w MV* -> Electric 4x12 + Orange 4x12

* or a 2-ch Dual Rectifier.. depending on how I feel.

He would have moved on from guitar, and started to master the fine art of Jazz-Polka accordion. No need for amps.
Orange AD30HTC thru Orange PPC2x12. Orange Bass Terror Combo.

Gibson ES-333, Gibson SG Bass, Custom Built Jazzmaster, Les Paul Custom, Kalamazoo KG-1A, Gibson J-45.
