That's Joe hua? He modded my Twin, well before I got it but still that's still pretty cool. And that tone is just massive.
Thanks.

Neat! So he has two open Twins there, right? The one on the speaker cab is the only one hes running through?

Yep, sounds like shit and is completely undemonstrative good tone.

I think anyone will be pleasantly surprised playing a twin type preamp> macintosh-> JBL 2x12. Then knowing a few licks... It is surely heaven for Jerry tone.

Totally

I've spoken to Joe a few times, he's a real cool guy and I think he's just south of Ma in coastal CT

Check this thread out again... before isn't quite close to the correct mods but a lot of the mods are right on the money. Quite impressive since Joe was doing this without all the info available today.

Sheesh... thanks for posting that clip and all the nice comments...as for the shitty comments ..some people never change I guess. Yeah the camera mic distorted out but even so you can still imagine what its like without that breakup. It just gives you a basic idea of the power and punch you get with 300 watts. As for Mike and Vic's twins I would have gladly updated those amps at any time providing you followed through with either sending them back or just letting me know exactly what you didnt like about them and i'd gladly head up for a retweak session. Now I gotta hear about some rat bastard (hehe) badmouthing work I did 3-4 years ago back when nobody here really knew what was going on in Jerry's amps for sure. (Btw ,we still dont) You really don't need the 300 watts as most of you all know. A great Jerry tone can be done with 25 watts..or as you can hear in a clip I made last night ( w/a '62 super @ 40 watts) The extra solid state power jerry had just allowed his tone to punch that clean low end way out there at any volume he needed. Solid state is also a very predictable and evenly sounding power section. The breakup that Jerry acquired that is so elusive can be done in several ways...try it on the front end with boost pedal of your choice. I hope you all are doing well and happily enjoying your rigs ..if not, theres obviously a qualified amp/guitar tech near you that can help get you where you want! And yes, this dude is a member :)

What's up, Joe? I never had any issues with the Twin you built for me back in 05, I just went a different direction for versatility with the modular preamp and then finally the digital rig.

My comment about the camera was just that you can't tell what's preamp overdrive because the camera's distorting, not a slam. Post up some good quality audio and let's hear where you're at with it these days.
