This is a sick rig! Sorry about my big head on the photo but this was the only one I had. I just busted out a long session for Stu and delivered this Mcintosh 2300 (over 100 pounds) that Brad Sarno found, it was one of those "I had this thing in my closet for 20 years" amps. Not a scratch on it! I also built him a 3x12 with E-120's. As much as the clamps are for cosmetics, this was the 1st time I ever had to do a fast speaker switch and it did shave a couple minutes off, maybe. Nah, they're for looks:) The middle E-120 couldn't handle the MC2300 on 10
and just by luck Jimmy Tebeau had an extra???? It was an extreme fun "DROP dead" good time for all, I ended up as guitar tech:)
I'm already thinking about a shock rack for the 2300. Any ideas? So this was at Schwagstock (Memorial day weekend) in Missouri, about 5000 had paid by "fryday" night. Vince Herman sat in, it was his birthday. Now to recuperate for a few days.
Melvin has the richest tone that I have ever heard. I played guitar with Merl Saunders on a few shows so I have that to compare it to. Merle had his grate parts too but Melvin was all about tone. I brought him a wa wa to use from Brad.
