    Thought he was using a super and a vibroverb. No difference.. great tone! No Dumble required!!!!


    (edit) - You can see the other amps better here. Smaller... 1x12 or 1x15 I think. Couldn't make out the name off youtube. See around 5:00ish http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMW0t17Ft5o

    Are the dynamics from the pickups, amp, or both?

    I love this performance, my favorite liveshow from him. The tone just pours out!

    Yeah, same here.. I probably learned the most of his style/feel from that video. The first 1-2 mins of Texas Flood is simply amazing.

    I believe you are correct regarding the amps. When he starts to play the tone just floors me. It's all from the gut, incredible!

    great clip! Don't forget about the .13 gauge strings!!! More metal = more tone!

    Other worldly! I wore out the video of this before it came out on DVD. I get so depressed after watching this, it makes me want to take up piano! There is just no hope for me!

    Of course it was in the mans hands, heart, and soul!
    that being said, the OP refers to two supers and a tube screamer..keep in mind the supers were fine tuned by diaz with twin transformers, EVM's and STR's. add to that a really really good strat and a smokin band :)

    I did not know that he replaced the transformers w/ Twin Reverb types.

    Learn something new everyday, I am going to try it.

    Thanks:dude

    Anyone know exactly when Cezar started working with SRV? This was pretty early in his career... just wondering if those mods came later.
