Reverse engineering this would be awesome!!!
A Peak Limiter would be a nice add-on to your preamp!
It would be any Mac that has the "Sentry Monitor" but no "Power Guard" (or you can at least switch the Power Guard off - like on the MC2120).
Brad's hypothesis is that it is the sound of the Sentry Monitor (limiter) smoothing out the clipping on an overdriven Mac that creates the "Jerry sound". Not sure this hypothesis has been tested or not. I think it's just an educated guess.
At least I haven't noticed any big difference from playing a 100W Mac with Power Guard and one without it.

It is often (especially on the higher notes) making the "limit" light flash and I can maybe hear some smooth clipping at times. I've used it with the Power Guard on and it doesn't make much difference sonically (still making the "limit" light up). My Twin is cranked up anywhere from 6 to 8, so its a pretty hot signal.
I don't really think Jerry is getting this kind of clipping all that often (yes, on some recordings more than others - like the 5/31/83 JGB show). Usually though he sounds much cleaner to my ears. Especially in the Grateful Dead.
I think Brad explained the difference bewteen the Sentry Monitor and Power Guard in the above posts. I really can't explain.
