    I got decent head phones on my computer, here at work, and I can really hear the clarity as well as the growl from those old plexis. It's amazing how aticulate a 100w plexi is. Really not the loose brown sound that has become so polular. I'll take Alvins tone. It's PFM. ....And, you can really hear the tone of that old 335 that he's playing.

    It's a wonderful thing.

    "This is Marshall tone at it's best!!!"

    The thing that really makes those amps come to life is being in close proximity to watermelon.

    That was some pretty incredible playing. Hear how out of tune his guitar was by the time he was finished? Looked like a cool, clammy night on stage!

    Just in case anyone didn't already know this. That is from the Woodstock movie, which is definitely worth having. Just to see the small mountains of shoes, and leftover personal belongings while Jimi jams out to Villanova Junction! great stuff!

    When I first got that woodstock album, I thought I'd lose my mind when I heard that cut. I wore that thing out!!! And learned how to play it in the process. That's a good one to bust out!:dude

    Great metal tone. I dunno, though. I wasn't especially moved by his phrasing too much. Wonder if Doug does the veal scallopini thing done to his necks.

    Nope, pushed too hard, getting into mushland.

    re: the Woodstock performance-
    I haven't listened to that for a long time. It was benchmark tone and bluesrock playing, for me, too. BUT, was the original vinyl an edited (shorter) version? And, where did the piano come from? Was that on the original LP? Hazy recall here.:confused:

    Fender for clean, Marshall for OD....guitar tone was finished by 69 and the last forty years has just been slight variations, or more of the same thing, outside of FX. We can now capture some of that tone in many different packages.

    I saw them in about 1973, and it was one of the greatest shows I've ever been to.
