Yes, the preamp + power amp + speaker are crucial for the JG grit, but I respectfully disagree that extreme volume is necessary to attain the JG grit IF those three are correctly optimized for JG grit. The originator of this thread has done extensive research on optimizing the Fender Twin and Mcintosh power amp to obtain the JG grit we're striving for at comfortable SPL's.

When he is singing he keeps the volume low, but once he starts this solo he throws the volume up and keeps creeping it up more and more and get's everything SCREAMING. Once he goes back to the verse you can see him turn it all down.
THIS is where it starts, if you cannot get that gritty searing sustain with his known amp settings, or even come close to it with NO effects, then you are not there yet. His hands were not creating the sustain and grit. It was his Twin Reverb preamp, Mac, JBL's and Tiger.
