Lemme guess, Dan?
I'd bet dollars to donuts it was Bear.
I Second that on it being Bear.

Because:

John Cutler: is too kind of a guy to call us twits... :smile:

Steve parish : he would have no problem calling us twits but the rest of the quote doesn't really fit him...

Ron Wickersham: Dont really know, but my gut says it isnt him

Janet Furman: From her posts on this board, I am fairly certain she doesn't think of this as an excercise of "Twits"


Dan Healy: I could believe this quote is from him if it turned out to be confirmed and he would be my second guess after Bear.


It hit me like a ton of bricks when hogan said Bear.... :lol: His Blogs are just about the same when speaking about people that think differently than him, what a smart guy though, and to live so long eating nothing but meat?

thanks Waldo!!! I was looking through your page and saw the knob settings for Jerry's twin. I was a bit shocked that he had the bass all the way down. I never used a lot of it but usually had it set at 3 or 4. I played a gig last night and thought I would do a stage test and man, it really hit that sound. It's funny, I've been playing this stuff for 25 years and never thought of that. :oops:

Wasn't the best tone for the couple of Allman Bros songs we had to play though.

It's cool that you have done so much research and have shared the wealth of information you have gathered with the rest of us.

Thanks, Waldo- wonderful stuff as always! :peas:

As an interesting aside- there has been a slew of vintage fender amps (chassis only) on the Bay recently, being sold by one guy. He's selling off his brother's collection, and they all start at 99 cents. What's interesting is that the majority seem to have been converted to pre-amps only. I found that curious.
