    I just got back from the Carlton/Ford show in Seattle. Playing and tones were magnificent. Neither had their dumbles. Robben played a super reverb and a twin reverb, Zen drive, volume and wah. Carlton had 2 twins, his volume pedal, and another (assuming overdrive) pedal which I could not see due to a monitor.
    Both players sounded exactly like I have heard in the past IMO with their dumble rigs, which lends an edge to the "tone is in the hands" argument.

    Very enjoyable, albeit short show.

    I could be mistaken, but for any non-Cali show, they get backline rental stuff and spike it w/ a pedal

    Carlton had a Zendrive, also. They didn't lack in tone.

    I've seen Carlton at Seattle's Jazz Alley...with his Dumbles'.

    Well, considering both were using Zendrives which emulate the Dumble tones and twins aren't exactly Peavey Bandits, I'd say the amps, pedals and guitars actually had more than a little to do with the tone besides their fingers.

    I think the BF Twin Reverb w/Jensen C12Ns is the best pedal platform ever made.
