    He's using Teddy's (of Make 'n Music in Chicago) R9 Les Paul into Donner's SF Princeton Reverb with a Greenback speaker. The pedal he's using has been dubbed the "R pedal," and he designed it specifically for Donner's Princeton/Greenback combo. It was at Chicago ToneFest last month. I was standing right off to the side when this was being filmed. I also got to play with it extensively. AWESOME. Bjorn is the man!!!

    Best,

    Doc :dude

    Yep, the Mad Professor himself! Those clips are from the Chicago Tone Fest last month. I'm pretty sure the clips are of him playing with a new protype higher gain pedal (RRRR Pedal). Sounds great! I'm not sure if I have the most BJFe's, surely Donner and Jofz can give me a run for my money in that dept! But Yeah, I just got a new HI-MD recorder (sony MZ-RH1 It's so tiny!) So now I can easily record some clips. I'll see what I can do this weekend.
    Also the Mad Professor is posting a lot on the guitar hub forum, if you have any questions!! http://theguitarhub.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=7

    Here's my Mighty Morhping BJFEe Pedalboard.
    Be sure not to stare directly at it, I can't be held responsible for any eye related injuries. :p

    Wow, that's an impressive collection. I think my board may end up looking that way one day. Now that I've heard BJF, I'm hooked.....

    The R Pedal has a particular midrange to it. The Dyna Red has more gain on tap. I'd say the R Pedal is more of a classic rock tone, whereas the Dyna Red is more of a late 70's - through the 80's tone. But, as always, so as not to offend anyone, IMHO, YMMV, IMO, just my .02, AFAIK, etc., etc., etc., disclaimer.......

    Dyna to GNR is a good description. Rrrr to probably anything from "Beano" Clapton thru perhaps late 70's Rush. Both are amazing pedals. WOW!!!

    Best,

    Doc :)

    I do like Bjorn's tone but I really like the tone of whoever was playing rhythm in the background. What was that rig?

    Hi,

    Thank you for your kind interest.
    I think about all I could say in this is posted here:
    http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showthread.php?t=149991

    I did hear the 65 amps at close range as they were just across the isle and also had some fun conversation with Mike from 65,

    Oh yea, the truth is unbelievable ;)

    Ha, yes Johan, it was great fun. I don't play blues that often, but could not resist to play with someone as inspiring and leading as Barry / Frankenstrat, master of the slide.


    Thanks everyone again and have most fun

    BJ

    Big fan. Dare I say almost the Alexander Dumble of pedals???? But minus the reclusiveness.

    yikes how did I miss this thread !!!! well Ive been painting and boxing the last two days so ~~~~ looks like most everything got answered ....

    the Princeton is right underneath the camera and this gives the sound way too much treble ( yes it actually sounds alot better in person) one reason Barry sounds fuller is his amp is across the room and is getting the benefit of the high ceilings/ wooden floors and huge room reverb ---- this is actually a good lesson in distance/close micing......(Oh and the fact that Barrys a killer player too:BluesBros )

    The Princeton is a hopped up Silverface - Deluxe trannies (more headroom) and a Greenback (EQ change) are the important things here .... well I guess I could make a little video of what this stuff is.... if I get time tommorrow I will try.....
