    OK. . .Audley Freed has done it. His tone in this clip is outstanding. Open. . .uncompressed. . .Awesome. . .Of course, his technique is outstanding and I know that tone is in the fingers. Still, Audley is playing a Gibson Les Paul with P-90's and a Custom Shop SG with Humbuckers, through a Matchless "15 watt amp". I'm assuming it's a Matchless Lightning. What speakers is he using? Who has better ears than me and can tell me what speakers are in the enclosure that Audley is playing through in this Gibson video:

    I've got a Matchless DC-30, and while in the ballpark, doesn't quite sound like the amp in the clip. I find my Matchless DC-30 to sound incredible one day and shrill the next. What gives. I'm seriously considering a new set of speakers, especially if I can get closer to this tone.

    I think he may mention the speakers. The Gibson thing is a 6 part series.

    The standard mis-matched speakers in a DC-30. . .1) Matchless 25 watt signature designed speaker and 2) Vintage 30.

    I'm looking for something that tames the "shards of glass" top end, besides the "cut" control.
