Strummin,
Totally agree on your recipe to get in that ballpark. Not a doubt. Just knowing MK as I do :smile: he is not going to rest until he gets confirmation of the full signal path on track 9 cd 1 of rehearsal A on the 3rd Tuesday of Feb 1975!
You may be right, but his question was, "How would one describe and reproduce this sound? "

I got it easily, actually.

I used to have a HD130 as well. Great Clean amps!

They are the opposite of the standard jerry rig in that the Pre-amp section of the Musicman is solid state and the Power section is Tube!
They have stupid amounts of power.

Bob's cab looks to be perhaps a Musicman with back removed, one K120 is visible out... never seen a 2x12Musicman cab like that but the hardware and construction looks right... perhaps associated with the HD-130 head he uses with a Cerwin-Vega cab at 9/28/75?
Jerry - Boogie
Bob - MusicMan

That would be consistent with my understanding of 1975.

So...I guess we can't see if Weir is mic'd?

Jeff - that really depends on the year. I have the original HD-130 Reverb, with is all tube. Solid state came later.

we see a mic stand in front of Jerry's Boogie, but not in front of Weir's cab, or the drums. I'd call these rehearsal shots.

in the late 70's the HD130 changed to having a solidstate preamp and tube power... the opposite of the post-1972 Garcia approach.

I was gonna say that. At first Weir had that chimey top end like a JBL at low volume, but it's SO hi-fi on top, and real dry sounding and does sound like a tube preamp going direct. Maybe a JBL, maybe direct. Pickup-wise, it sounds like some combination of humbuckers and singles. I don't know what that guitar had for pickups, but it kind of sounds like the warmth and fatness of humbuckers, and then a single added for the sharp, crispy edge.

Perhaps a warm, fat setting with the bright switch on.
