    people are always talking about gears... (Yes,it's TGP).

    ...so please don't say something nasty thing toward others...ok?

    Anyone?

    PS, I made this thread about "dirt pedal"

    Interesting proposal - I have to say that, even though I no longer have either the guitar or the amp, the spirit of the tone I'm aiming for is somewhat germinating in here somewhere:

    Not the most technically brilliant, and it's just guitar to amp that's it, but something about the feel makes it my fave clip that I put up - even make it my channel's avatar pic. Not as many hits as other vids since who searches for an Epiphone amp, but there you go. I have a feeling that a low wind humbucker and a tube amp with a nicely rotating tremolo has something to do with what direction I'd like to take.

    Heres something I call Bleu Chameleon with the VA Strat, Fuchs ODS 50, and the Pig 60, all at once.
    http://www.atozclean.com/Media/Crazy_2.mp3

    What you see in the picture is the pine cab for the pig 60, the eff. rack, the Fuchs hd. & cab, and the pig head is on top of the left side pa cab.

    Guitar is maple over mahogany, chunky birdseye neck, ebony board, 24 3/4 scale.

    The postal box is acting as a baffle, there is a mic behind it, being isolated from the other mic.

    Here's a little jam done with the same rig: http://www.atozclean.com/Media/Montreaux.mp3

    The settings and variations are endless.

    This will sound either strange or like a lie but I've never once had the chance to play a slow blues number, start to finish until I did this sound clip demo-ing five different guitars with PAF's to demonstrate how completely different vintage PAF's can sound. I've played guitar since 1964 but never once been in an actual "blues" situation. I think after hearing the clip you will probably believe me. Playing blues (especially slow) is not my strong suit for sure but here is my slow blues debut. I also played bass drums and rhythm. For the gear heads all five PAF guitars were played an a late 1950's 5 watt Supro w/8" speaker in this clip:

    Link fixed. Thanks for the note....

    Hey Jahn:

    I did not realize you were on TGP. I found your clips on youtube one day and really liked this one:

    Very cool thread. Very cool tones! This is something I made up for it reallllly quick-like. I gotta go to work!
    ES335TD-->Mesa525 1x10 all on green channel first part at the neck, second at the bridge. Recorded with SM57--->Yamaha MW10--->Cakewalk Music Creator 3. Probably doesnt quite all mesh together technically-wise but whatever haha! Again, cool thread TOMO!

    Some really nice tones in there, live and raw sounding, and your blues definitely sounded convincing enough to me :AOK

    Sure, I'll play....

    Here's a tune I wrote a few years back. There's four separate guitar tracks on it, all of them use the same '72 50-watt Marshall with a 1960TV cab:

    1) Rhythm chording, done with a '62 reissue Strat,
    2) Fills in between the verses, same setup as above,
    3) Arpeggios and power chords during the buildup to the chorus and the chorus itself, done with a '78 LP Deluxe and a Tube Screamer, and
    4) Solo, done with the '62 reissue Strat and an old Arbiter Fuzz Face

    Blood Runs Cold

    How's about some pics?

    That's an awesome tremelo. Is that the slowest setting?

    What's the model # and where did you get it?

    Damn, now I have to go out and get a Supro.

    Sounds killer. You kick ass at the slow blues.

    Greg,

    Thanks for your tasty playing! Makes me play minor blues.

    It's nice to hear everyone's favorite guitar and amp... Better than 1000 words!

    Unfortunately it's CHOPCHOPCHOP or off as far as depth, but you can control the speed. Crazy little amp. But I haven't found anything that can recreate it. The model is 1878 (which isn't in the Bluebook anywhere, I'm not surprised) and I found it on eBay, marked "small blue amp." ;) Here are some other vids with it being used-

    http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=epiphone+jahnli&aq=f

    Oh and 60hzShuffle, thanks for the kind word on the Starfire/Princeton combo. I did decide that the low-wind small buckers on 60's Guilds was the right combo for something like a noiseless P-90 tone, and since that clip I went from the silverface Princeton Reverb to a brownface Princeton ('64 Transitional). The onboard bias tremolo is so much more controllable than on my old Epi, but it doesn't get as "square." I think an Ampeg Gemini VI has that Epi's chop down the closest, but that amp was huge and I had to trade it away, sadly.

    So thanks to Tomo for starting this thread. It's definitely been a work in progress to find "my tone" but I think I'm getting closer and closer.
