Nice job around the 5 min mark--seamless tone switch--very Jerr like.

Looks like you're playing through an old Fender. Which one?

Hey John -

For this gig, I used a blackface ('66?) Pro Reverb that has been modified by Lord Valve (aka Fat Willie) here in Denver. He put a larger transformer and some other mods on there.

I'll also use a Silverface '68 Twin that has been blackfaced for larger venues.

For this night I used a separate speaker cab that has k120's. I also like the weber neomags I use on occasion that are installed in the twin.

The guitar is a heavily modded strat, with OBEL, Waldo buffer, etc.

I use the Earth Drive Pedal to take some of the high end sting out and add a bit of git.

This was a short version of Bird Song....sometimes the bar scene doesnt lend itself to stretching things out too long.....

Thanks - Dave
