That's not Jerry on Jerry's guitar, and it sounds awful!

i agree superhero jerry had sum space age tone. Alot of his tone is just a clean amp w a few effects. He usually used amp distortion by linking up several amps and or ampheads to get a overdrive . A stomp pedal could nvr get that sound ( overdrive dod or boss)


Not sure if anyone covered this yet... but wtf are you talking about? jerry used a twin reverb until '93. Twin reverb's produce little to no "amp distortion" as they are 80watts of tube power... and on top of that jerry ran the preamp of the twin into a very loud and clean power amp. in the 80's he used a boss distortion pedal. in the 90's he had a groove tubes trio... which he had set for clean and distorted sound. so, if you are planning on coming on to a forum that revolves around the sharing of info between sa bunch of GD gearhead... know the facts or you will be looked at the way you are now... as a very ignorant individual that seems to have no proof to back up what you say. and please... refrain from making comments directed at waldo... he is a good man and deserves a bit more respect than you have shown to him.

He was schooled. That was an interesting day. Not sure what his purpose was. But, if he was talking about the late 60's I was under the assumption Jerry linked a few twins together for his rig, which may be what he is referring to, but still ,doubt he was there to see it. As for 73 on everything is a different depending on the year or tour even. That guy isn't around anymore from what I have seen. I think his intentions was to start a fire and run.

What do you guys think of my little rig? I can get some decent Garcia-ish Tones the Boss OD-2R screams, its a little harsh, I understand the Boss GE-7 EQ tames the OD-2R is that true? I hear they work well together and Jerry used a similar combo as well. I am a player but not pro at all, hack I guess.

So much to learn & I have so many questions.

Thanks I love this site!

Sorry Jbird, it is pretty cool, I like your pedal board too. I am sure the rig does the job well. I like Boss pedals, they can even be modded easily into boutique works of art if you want, a great starting point for that, but still great sounding OD (and others) without that. Mutron products speak for themselves round here. Thanks for sharing! :smile:

I think Vic actually started this thread specifically to talk about his latest rig (not that anyone should have ownership of the phrase "my Garcia rig").

This would seem to be the de facto continuing/"sticky" thread for everyone to post their gear: http://www.rukind.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=319&t=271&start=270

During 1989, JG used the OD-2r w/o an EQ, adding the GE-7's to both of his OD pedals early in 1990 (iirc)

Just finished making some upgrades. Here she is:
Image

Amps:
1977 SF Twin with JBL E120's
Vox AC4TV head and cab

Pedals:
QTron +, Ibanez AF-9, Ibanez Tubescreamer, Digitech JamMan Solo, Boss GE-7, Korg Pitchblack, Whammy,
Boss DS-1, Boss Noise Suppressor, Ernie Ball Volume JR, EH Holy Grail

Guitars:
Jimmie Vaughan Strat (this thing ROCKS)
PRS SE Maple Soapbar II
1972 Ensenada Dove Acoustic
(Not pictured)

I feel like this is a decent setup, mainly because I'm 20 and have payed for it all myself.

Whaddyall think?
