Brad, sounds awesome! First, and most important, your playing is killer! Perfectly in the groove, not too rushed, and rockin'! Certainly not rusty. Your tone is equally badass - I love Telecasters. Well done! The singer is really good too!
Thank you TS! Yeah, Neil Salsich is such a great voice. He's got a band out on the road called Mighty Pines, kinda rockin bluegrassy, great players. That's the bass player and harmony vocal from Mighty Pines too.
Might as well join the SMS CTP jerry rig clip thread! Here's from a recent show with soundboard audio so you can hear the tone better. This is straight clean tone, guitar to preamp to amp to speakers:

I just got my Mac and my Wolf back from being repaired. The Mac seems to have recurrent input issues (someone replaced the RCA inputs with 1/4" before I got it). Thankfully, there's a guy in town who does amp repair and he has a MC2100 that he uses for his stereo so he knows his way around them. The Scarlet Fire Wolf had some nut issues. The brass was getting worn out and would no longer intonate properly and the low E string would hop out of the slot if I hit it hard. My buddy, repair guy, and luthier got it working like new again.
I'm just noodling around here. I'm playing tonight, maybe I'll get a reasonable video. Mostly non-Dead stuff - Stones, Allmans, Joe Cocker, Jackson Browne etc
Getting me fingers together before practice.

Sounds nice! I'm curious about your Tone Tubby Nashville. Is yours alnico or ceramic? And have you ever been able to A-B it directly with a JBL?
“[P]ersonally I disagree with the general philosophy of ‘genre equals gear’ at anything beyond a cosmetic level. I think the right idea is to find the right amp for you, and then play whatever kind of music you like. The “Jerry Thing” was just Jerry. It wouldn’t have mattered what he used and he used a lot of stuff.” Steve Kimock (The Gear Page 04/08/18)
Those are Beyma’s your using, correct? Beyma owner here too and I’m always second guessing the difference between em’ and JBL e120’s. I own d120’s/k120’s but Never played through e120’s.
Either way, Sounds great!!
Yep, they are Beyma Liberty speakers. I like them a lot. I've got some Eminence Commonwealth speakers too and don't like them as much. I've played through E120s but not through my rig so it's hard to compare. What are your thoughts between the Beymas and the D/K120s?
