Does anyone know definitively (or even approximately) when Bobby started using flatwounds? I gotta tell you, I am over my flatwound experiment for Weir tones. I get much better results with standard round 10's or 11's than I did with Flats. At least for the 77-83 tone which is what I usually shoot for.

The switch to modulus was a fairly healthy change right out of the gate. Really the period I shoot for were the cowboy years (which is 77-83). There are some minor differences when he switches from boogie to Peavey to IVP, and there are some different effect choices, but to my ear the jangle/cut of the cowboy is the defining characteristic of the era and the meat was similar even though the condiments (effects) and bread (amps) changed a bit.
