    This is from an interview with Henry Kaiser on the Warmoth website.


    Q: When you play large shows (big stages), what does your set up consist of?
    HK: I will bring a harmonizer and a multi-effects processor, at the moment an Eventide Eclipse and a TC Electronic G-System. At home I generally use the same Dumble Overdrive Special Amp that I have had for 25 years. I don’t like to take it on the road - so I usually request a Fender “Red Knob” Twin. Which, oddly enough, is the generic amp that comes closest to the Dumble clean sound. Then I use 3 or 4 fuzzes for different distortion colors. At home I also enjoy Two Rock Amps, Rivera Amps, and Divided By 13 amps. Also a couple of old Fender Super Champs.

    Wow, I have heard about the "Red Knob" refered to many times in regards to Robben and some others. I know Tag has posted some things on it. I cannot recall having played one. Well, the resale value of one is now going to skyrocket:D .


    Peace,

    Hey Duffy, how's the homeland?

    Maybe in the future we can have 10 page threads fighting about the myths surrounding this future urban legend - the Evil Twin.

    All I remember about that Twin was that a friend of mine had one all modded to hell with EV's in it. Not only was it one of the loudest clean amps I've ever heard (I think he had the power upped substantialy) but it was also like moving a safe. It would take you two sets just to get the strength back in your arm after lifting it. Most of the time he had someone help him move it.

    A two man twin, no thanks.

    Kenny M.

    Hey Kenny,
    Overall, things are good in the Motor City. Lot's of music going on all over the place. Studio scene not so great though, high $$ commercial work is shrinking more and more. It's been a crazy busy summer gigging wise. When you coming back to visit the "hood"?

    Peace bro,
    Duffy

    Is this the same "Twin" that Mick Taylor used on the John Mayall Birthday Concert DVD? Great tones with a Les Paul.
    Thanks,
    Rick

    I had one back when Robt Cray was endorsing them.
    I hated the amp...couldnt get a good tone out of it.
    That said...I'm a different player now, with slightly different hands, and a whole different head! :D
    I really would like another crack at that beast!

    There is another nice amp The Concert Rivera design,I have used mine for years with the Original 6L6,s that came in the amp and it still sound great,I think it sounds on the cleans as good as a BFSR,I have an original 67 to A/B and almost the same tones,
    Yet there are guys that say this amp doesnt sound good,so it just a matter of playing styles I guess.:rolleyes:

    Is that what Garth is using now? Does he run an SOV-1 in front?

    By a Dumble clean sound, are we talking about getting into SSS territory? Ifind that blending the two channels makes it very versatile but I think gets a bad name as the gain channel can be a bit harshnon its own.

    Holy 10 year old thread ressurection! This has to be one of the oldest threads I've seen woken up on here... :)

    But - to be fair, it is a valid question... carry on.

    Not to get off subject, but every time I see a quote about tone from Henry, I just go back and listen to him playing. I want everything opposite of that tone no matter who makes the amp or effects.
