Beside the Stones and Jeff Beck. What would be some recording to look for?
Frampton used to use an Ampeg combo.
Good question. I've seen a million bass players using Ampegs, but very few guitarists.
I don't know of any guitarists that use Ampeg, but there are tonnes of bass players that do use Ampeg and get great sounds out of them.
Ampegs are probably used for more guitar tracks than we really even know about, considering there were lots of them around.
I've heard that the Black Keys dude is a more modern player that uses some Ampegs in the studio.
Rollin' Stones Some of their greatest work was with Ampegs !!!
An obscure favorite , Greg Sage of the Wipers....
Paul Gilbert used Ampeg amps in the early 90's when he (and Ampeg/Crate) were associated with Lee Jackson.
[SIZE=+1]1989 - MR. BIG first album - Metaltronix head and Ampeg/ADA system
1991 - MR. BIG "Lean Into It" - All of the above!
1993 - MR. BIG "Bump Ahead" - Ampeg VL1002 head
I thought Mike Campbell was using one for quite a while?
I believe Steve Morse used V4s back in the early days of The Dregs.
If you watch the Concert for Kampuchea, there are a mixture of Ampeg and fender amps and cabs behind George Harrison and Co. Hard to tell who is plugged into what, but a careful slow mo/pause viewing might do it.
Lot of the faces stuff.
I believe Josh Homme used Ampegs for the first three QOTSA albums.
Elliot Randall's solo on "Reelin' in the Years" by Steely Dan is a SVT
Magic Sam on some of his stuff
I saw G Love and he had a couple reverberockets. Pretty sure hes an ampeg guy. I had one myself. Its the one amp I sold that I really miss.
Early Rod Stewart and the Faces . Ampeg was their staple sound . Ron Wood Played them .(stay with me)..... Also in his solo carreer you hear his guitarist use them on the more rock n roll stuff (hot legs). Very nice sound
Rory Gallagher also used Ampegs for a while.
...Speaking of Gallaghers, that Dying Fetus guitarist.
I think other death metal heads like those Ampegs too.
