Yep. I think Frampton himself said a mid sixties Ampeg Echo Twin was used on about half of Comes Alive. He had the Marshalls towers for effect but the Ampeg was the secret sauce that really made that recording sound like it does.He used an Ampeg Echo twin and a 100 w Marshall Super Lead.
What I want to know is, what parts of the songs did he switch amps? Like the intro to Do You feel, is it ampeg or Marshall? The solo sounds like cranked Marshall.
Good thing he wasn't on it....we've lost enuf good musicians to plane crashes....Rhodes, Skynyrd, SRV and others I'm sure.I read somewhere that Peter Frampton was on tour in South America, and a plane crashed with his gear on it. Does anyone know the specifics about that incident?
What do you mean here? You mean it's part of his tone 24/7? If so, kind of doubting that, because I've seen video of him in control booths wanking away, and only a Marshall head and a 4x12 behind him, and he still was getting *that* tone.He used the Ampeg all the time.
