My bad - I should have been more specific. Point I was trying to get across - and thank you for reading between the lines here - was that it's way cool if you can replicate Jerrys gear from a specific era, but there are also some other things available - since it is almost 2011 - that work too.
Best part is that towards the end Jerry was plugging directly into the board - now I preferred all the amps and leslies on stage - but point being times change and Jerry would probably be playing an axe fx or something if he were still alive. Love this discussion and also dig the hemp cones
I wasn't trying to rip on ya but instead open up your eyes to new possibilities
. You are the unfortunate recipient of my frustration over the "real Jerry rig" chats of dudes using JBLS with 100W going to each. It's just very unrealistic and quite frankly doesn't work for many. I believe it was Mr. Kimock who plugged into JG's rig and couldn't get it to sound good at all.
Also, Jerry evolved based on his needs and size of venue. So if you want to replicate the exact gear you also need to replicate:
1 - the volume
2 - the amount of air the speakers pushed out into
All very important variables.
Regarding Jerryesque tone I've heard Waldo's rig nail it with 1 JBL and what, 22 watts? Other dudes nail it well with TRRIs I've even heard great tone from Blues Jr guys.
