It's a Bassman.
Nope, cyber twin
So the consensus is..everybody....
Wow, when was that? You're talking about his live setup, right?
Is it possible that one of the world’s greatest and most famous players and a fender signature artist has more than one amp?
Anyway, when I saw him it was two bassmans. Or basemen.
Yeah, cranked Bassman has been Buddy's go-to rig since he first started recording and performing. I think he had a brief flirtation with Marshalls in the 80s.
Buddy's gear is kind of a lowkey obsession of mine, so I'm fascinated with this Cyber Twin talk.
It was early 2000's or maybe late 90's so a while ago. In your defense though Buddy tone with any amp is terrible lol
Well, it wasn't always...
Jimmy Page is just terrible- really sloppy playing, and his sound is horrendous.
Joe Perry has always been regrettable to my ears.
Pretty much all of the "metal" post like..2000..with all the super low tunings and stuff.
I've heard that ....
It’s amazing that Zep sold any albums as horrible as I’ve heard Page is ........
I know right?... all these bands and guitarists that emulated them are idiots and they don't even realize it.
Well since no one said mine here it is.....Eddie Van Halen!!!!!! I know lll get some hate for this but every song lve ever heard of his is just lacking tone, l think hes a good player but man l hate that tone or lack there of. Its like its dull or something, a wah always half cocked of something, Metallica falls right in the same category
I'm noticing a pattern here. Someone posts "Who's the best guitarist of all time?" and everyone replies with the stock list of famous guitarists. Then someone posts, "Who's the most over rated guitarists?" and everyone replies with the same stock list of famous guitarist. Someone else will post, "Who has the best tone?" and another will ask "Who has the worst tone?". The questions keep changing, but the answers are always the same.
If you think about it, nearly the entire history of electric guitar has been about turning “bad tone” into (sometimes) great music. Whether it’s tweed or tube screamer or melting Marshall, or even Jazz-Chorus “cleans”, we intentionally distort what we actually play, in a somewhat-controlled, somewhat chaotic way, and turn it into art.
Yep. These things are cyclical. Like the tides. When you’ve been long enough you can predict what’s coming next.
I think Hendrix always got good tones in the studio, but some of the early live stuff can be ratty. I think the studio Red House is like the Best Sound Ever
Jimmy Page is great on so many levels, but his substance abuse really affected his live playing.
I’ll pontificate more when I get the chance.
I always thought Hendrix's live tone was kinda shrill and not great. But that could have been how it was recorded from the stage or a number of other variables. But the studio tone was killer all day. Jimi immediately came to mind.
Conversely, I never really cared for SRV's recorded tone. Far prefer his live tone. Nothing really wrong with his recorded tone, just kinda boring to me, i suppose.
Page was great up through the 4th album, Houses of the Holy. I think Zep III was their best and most creative overall.
