    I just ran across this. I happen to use a two amp rig myself.This is great stuff.

    PS Everyone's idea of tone is different. Check out Joey's idea of a clean tone!
    EDIT: The quality of the recording is only OK and does not show the amps to their best advantage perhaps but you guys are always clamoring for clips ;) so ... but his comments on the rig , how he uses the different amps no distortion pedals etc is pretty interesting. This clip has some great quality recording of his rig in action

    I must have missed the "clean" tone part... :confused:

    LOL!

    Great player, for sure, but I just can't listen to that kind of playing -- or tone -- for too long.

    That should say something about all the gear demos done with camcorders :cool: Joe is demonstrating the different amps he is using, and they all sound the friggin' same!

    I'd guess that he's probably got them set pretty much alike, in person. You'd probably have a hard time picking them out in the third row.

    I honestly cant hear the difference in his 3 settings but I do admit it all sounds killer to me

    Thanks for posting. Interesting that he leaves the Marshall on all the time with all those expensive ones just adding some color to the tone (and delay perhaps). It is hard to disagree much with trazan in that they do sound similar by the time they have the Boss delay, delay between amps, camcorder, etc. piled on.

    It also is pretty clear that he plays pretty loud. My issue is usually more about getting the sounds I like at far lower volumes than I suspect he is using (he has plexiglass shields, talks about "parting the Red Sea" with his volume, has four 100 watt heads, talks about using high power speakers that can handle the "punishment", etc.).

    I was hoping to see a clearer comparison showing differences between the expensive rigs. Nothing in this video that would make me choose one over the other (or choose any for my normal use) based on this video.

    Here is video with a bit more variety (nice use of the volume control on his LP in the middle of it).

    That boy sure has been wearin' out them EJ cds ;) I think he's a great player, but seems like everything I seem from him in the past year or so really leans on the Johnson style.

    That sounds very much like Eric Johnson's tone to me, minus the pristine, sparkly cleans and with a bit more attack.

    Strange. They do all sound pretty much the same. I'm not the most schooled on Joe B. but I don't remember him sounding so blatantly like Eric Johnson in the past?

    I dunno. Just sounds like run-of-the-mill, humbuckers-into-Marshall, to me.

    Indeed a very nice rig and Joe's a very well respected player.

    The effects actually go though the Jubalee, which is on all the time. The others are brought in for there respective strengths. The Zep tunes, ZZtop medely and mountain time are done on the Cat5, and if its an outside show, alot more.

    He's a real good player. Don't quite hear him on EJ's level though.

    That was awesome! Thanks for posting. I understand the EJ analogy but I love the way Joe plays. Much more into the blues and a way better singer. I love the way his rig sounded. My sister lives a stones throw away from the Belly Up. Wish I'd known about it.
