While I really dug it I miss that vintage Marshall wall of sound. Dude is one of my new favorites and I'm listening to the new album a lot.

I saw him with a Traynor combo amp at a little Blues festival just outside of Clearwater Beach a few months back. Man, did he make that amp sing! Was really hoping to hear the Marshall grit...but he made that Traynor sound killer.

I was going to make the trip from North Jersey but our drummer couldnt make a show that week and we got a sub who wanted a rehearsal and could only do it the night of the Sellersville show.

Thanks for the videos of the show - they look and sound great.

I was at the Sellersville show also. The volume was about perfect for the room, any more and would have needed earplugs. A Marshall without attenuator would definitely have been too much. Kinda preferred the tele/supa fuzz to the 335. Overall though, a strong testament to what can be achieved with just guitar->amp. Drum solo interlude was rad, one of the best shows I've ever seen.

Back in March, they had a show cancelled in Champaign Il and he came to the town that I lived in and played a free gig which is about 45 minutes south of Champaign. Second gig at this small bar in about 8 months. Heard it was packed and awesome. If it had not been Easters Eve and I had been singing at Easter Vigil which went quite late, I would have been there. He is a lot of fun to see play.

anyone know why he is back to his deluxe reverb vs the Marshall?

I was wondering the same thing.

Maybe the Marshall is being serviced?

I was there that night and I talked to JD and his Road manager/ merch guy about his rig. He said he started using the Deluxe reverb because its easier to travel with and he likes using the trem and reverb. He likes having the reverb to adjust to venue size. The 100 watt marshal wasn't as venue friendly as the deluxe. I'm not positive but I think the 2x15 cab was not hooked up that night. The deluxe reverb was a 1966 in a '67 cabinet.

For guitars he had two "red" Collector choice's that Gibson built for him and his old R&S tele that he's had for a while. I ask where was the burst "candy" and they said they left the burst and Red at home this tour because of the stress of traveling with the expensive vintage gear. They just got done going through Europe and the way they explained it, traveling through Europe with such an expensive guitar was more stress than it was worth.

Anyone in the area that missed the Sellersville he's coming back around again june 9th at the Dawson street Pub.

If you haven't seen him live yet you should definitely check him out. He puts on a great show.

I love his playing, but somehow the latest recording left me cold. I streamed a bit of it and didn't buy it. I probably will, come to think of it, to give it a better listen and to support this kind of musician. And maybe it's the haircut, but he looks thinner than the time I saw him play and that's a good thing. If he came within an hour or so of me, I'd drive to see him again. I'd take my son, too.

nl128 thanks for the update on the gear. Despite this news and having a deluxe reverb, I still need a Marshall of some type.

That makes sense, especially given that Candy isn't his.

Did he talk about the fuzz pedal? I'm assuming it's a Marshall Supa Fuzz like the signature one Farmer built for him.

Sorry I forgot to ask about it. I saw the fuzz sitting on top of the amp when I first got there. I'm almost certain it was an old supa fuzz.

I was so shocked about the missing marshal I forgot all about the fuzz lol
