Jeff Mattson's tone,

I saw Jeff with the Donna Jean Band at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock.

Looked like Jeff was playing a stockish strat into a tube amp that I did not recognize.

Needless to say, Jeff got awesome tones, apparently no pedals, no buffer, no Super IIs, no twins and possibly no JBLs either! Yet despite all of this lack of gear, Jeff emulates Jerry as well as, if not better than pretty much anyone. GO figure! Go Jeff.

Of course we joke that Jerry played Sugeree maybe 3000 times, while Jeff has played it 10,000 times!

For sure Jeff is boosting his signal in this jam to get that fat tone. Could be a number of different pedals. Twins do not OD like that with some help. He's got a killer tone and given the lack of effects and simple rig I'm going to say 98% of his tone is in his hands and how he has both his amp and guitar dialed in.

Looking forward to seeing DSO when they come to Seattle this spring.

Wow, he's my type of player.

Peace,

James

Volume does wonders with tube amps.
