I've been poking around, and I can't seem to find a reference for the model of envelope filter Bob used with the GD like in this 'Music Never Stopped' circa '91. Anyone have any thoughts/ideas?

I wish Billy would stop looking at me like that, it's giving me the creeps...

I'd rather have Billy look at me as above than be the SDS member at the end of this glare!

Bobby destroyed that version! Ouch!! You can hear a stubborn frustration goin on in his playing. Maybe just totally sick of playing these tunes, but man. That was a downer! :cry:

Students for a Democratic Society. It became progressively more radical to the extent that some leaders branched off into bombings etc. in effort to instigate a political revolution...vs. a spiritual or consciousness revolution that others of the era prioritized.

So you are saying Bobby was intentionally playing in an obtuse style to the rest of the band, and with a terrible sounding effect/tone, in order to break out of the Grateful Deads musical status quo?

He is instigating a train wreck!

Pretty good pic showing settings for several pieces of gear.

In the early 80's, I think he front-ended the AF9 with a TS9. In this pic, it looks like the TS9 has been replaced with a Boss pedal, and I'm not sure which comes first. I don't think his single coils could push the AF9 adequately so he needed the boost.

Maxon/Ibanez licensed the circuit from MuTron for the AF-9. It runs on 9V rather then 18V. A friend has a MuTron and I have a Maxon. I've tried them side by side and they are damn close.

SDS was certainly confrontational but I would say the SDS breakaway, Weather Underground, were advocating for upping the violence quotient.

After Kent State, Jackson State, COINTELPRO, etc.

"Revolution was in the air".

Sorry for the hijack.
