Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs' started by Nacho Strato, Jun 24, 2008.
Huge fan of both, by the way.
I bet that rig sounds absolutely sick!
Anybody know what those mics are?
Wow, so he is taking the Dumbles on the road with him this summer, ballsy to bring the Steel String Singer! Still would like confirmation on what's in those cabinets...where did you get that pic Nacho?
Hello clean headroom, nice to meet you! I guess the regular Sig V2 wasn't good enough for the full tour:
Here is a link from someone's review in the Sound Lounge...not as clear of a pic of the Mayer set up but you can see the others.
here, on the last page of "John's gear list" on the "mystupidmouth" musician boards.
I'm excited to hear the SSS in person this summer.
Wow what a sic setup!
This was mentioned in the other thread and someone mentioned that they were Beyerdynamic M88s. I wouldn't know though.
I want some info on those cabs!
I find it interesting that there is so much info about amps but very little about cabs/speakers. It's like a hidden art.
Nice set up!
up to a while ago Mayer was just using the Two-Rock cabs...this was on the last tour. Maybe that explains the lack of info on these new cabs. The guess would be some version of 65's since he's been using them for a long time. That or I'd guess EVM12's...but that's purely conjecture.
That's disgustingly beautiful. wow.
Can't wait to catch him live July 7th, here in Toronto!
The problem with seeing him live is that it is very expensive to sit close enough to really hear the amps.
Actually, I believe he's been using Jenson Neo's exclusively for awhile now.
Same! Cya there.
I'll be in the third row, thanks to my Mom.
She's in the fanclub.
Just out of curiosity, why does he use 4 2x12s rather than 2 4x12s? That is a killer setup, bet it's loud as hell.
Something to do with the separation of the two sets of speakers. I believe it's a tighter and more focused sound, as opposed to a 4x12.
SRV had a Dumble 4x12 made and I believe it had a separator between the top and bottom sets of speakers.
Last year, as a thank you gift to all the folks that helped with my wedding, (photographer and his wife, officiant and his wife) I took them to see the JM show at Red Rocks. I got in line at noon that day,waiting for doors to open at 6 or 7? We ended up getting 4th row. I got a hear those gems up close an personal....that will always be a memorable night for me. For my friends, who at the time weren't familiar with JM3 or the Continuum album...it was baptism by fire. Needless to say that night they all hit iTunes up and completed their JM collections.
We still talk about that night. If you haven't been to Red Rocks, put in on the "Bucket List". Most artist I have seen there dig a bit deeper. The place really is magical. And for us fans of tone, filling the venue with the sweet sounds of a Dumble, Sterling Signature, and JM sig....well, you get the picture.
