I thought it was pretty universal that it was by far and away the worst tone in Jerry's history. Just awful. All glass and crisp, no body or warmth, no dimension, just plain shitty, and for a guy who had previously created, in my opinion, about the most beautiful guitar tone in history. It made me very sad in '94 when it went that way. The Trio was far from pretty in the treble response compared to his Twin, and the lack of miking and going direct instead is just an audio sin of indescribable proportion. Since the late '60s Jerry played thru JBL's. It was a critical and central part of the tone. I'd be fascinated to meet a real human who actually thinks Jerry's tone improved with that rig in '94. To me it was a real tragedy.
