    Why don't you ask the question over here http://www.vintagerocker.com/forum/

    Howard has his own section over there called "Howies Corner" If he know he'll get back to you. Great Forum BTW.

    Howard used alot of different amps touring.

    Here's a couple.

    Roger Fisher was the main lead guitarist in the early days - Hiwatts, Marshalls...
    Leese played more keys and rhythm guitar in the early days, but was the main lead guy during Heart's '80s years. Tours quite a bit w/ Paul Rodgers these days.
    Leese is a solid player (and a respected arranger), but Fisher was very special/unique player (IMHO).

    But this is a recent concert you're asking about, right?

    I saw them in 1977 and they were using Marshalls on stage.

    Do you mean the tour to support the DA album in '76?

    Anyway, saw them up close at the 2nd Annual Texas Jam (Cottonbowl, Dallas '79...80,000 in attendance). They were really at the best of their "hard rock" game back then, and after Roger left the band they became the nonsense fat ballad queens. Michael Derosier = VERY underated hard rock drummer! He completely kicked ass that afternoon. Of course, and like with other hard rock bands --foriegner, etc., etc.,-- the "ballad" era directly coincided with highest chart success and most boredom, for me anyway.

    Oops, sorry....amps? Texas Jam '79 = Marshalls (IIRC).

    Fisher was one of the saviors of rock and roll!! :YinYang

    If you think about it, what was happening in the mid to late 70s? Nothing but Disco ( other than Van Halen in 78 ) ..... Heart rocked out and gave the music world hope that there were still decent bands out there. Fisher was a big part of the rock and roll sound .... his tone and playing was excellent!! It's too bad he didn't last longer with the band than he did.

    Actually, quite a bit of hard rock was happening in the late '70s. Boston, Queen, FM & Mahogany Rush "Live", Foreigner, April Wine, Pat Travers, ...list went on and on.

    Then again, it depended on where you set your radio dial.

    Marshall stopped making plexi's in '69. My '69 small box 50 has a metal pannel. I was told (from the serial number) it was made in July of '69. That's a prety purple Marshall, but if it's from '71 it's a metal pannel.

    It's been awhile since I saw that show but if memory serves, I think it was a Bogner. But my memory is real bad these days so take it FWIW.
