Peter Green..........

So much is made of Peter's GM Les Paul and that famous reverse neck Humbucker.............but what about that other crucial chain in his tone magic recipe? What kind of an amp did Peter Use? I'm assuming a Marshall but I really don't have a clue...........Anybody have particulairs? Combo or Head & bottom, speakers, wattage......etc.?

I am pretty sure Peter used Orange/Matamp in his early days.

There is a guy in NJ that owns one of Greens Orange heads. Beside the Orange amps I think he used Fender amps.

He used a JTM45 for most of the early stuff. I saw him in the studio for the "Albertross" sessions and they were using Orange (or seemed to be).

When they toured overseas (outside the UK) they tended to rent stuff, hence Fender (and anything else, really).

Best, Pete.

Marshall with the bluesbreakers and Fender Bandmasters with the Mac. They did use Orange for a bit but Peter himself said they didn't really care for them.

The Orange thing was a deal they did. He liked the Reverb unit, though.

I never saw them/him with a Fender Bandmaster - but they did rent a lot on tour as I said and I certainly never saw every gig! As for them piling into the back of a Ford Transit in England his trusty JTM45 would (usually) do the trick.
Where did you see him with the Fender?

Best, Pete.

I bow to everyone else's expertise - afterall I was only working with Mike Vernon at the time.

Best, Pete.

I've heard that a Fenton-Weil amp was described as Peter Green's "favorite" amp, but I don't know how true that is.

How cool! I've heard Mr. Green used one of the first Matamp/Orange Amps ever made on Albatross. A low wattage combo along with a Matamp Reverb Unit.
