Albert Lee. He uses (used?) a Korg A3.
Here being interviewed by Howdy Doody:
because Mk II's aren't road worthy?
Nope, he just hates his Marshalls ...
Yeah, I like my JMP, so, when I play out, I always use a Gorilla, because I like to beat it up...
not that i can remember honestly, but gawd knows ive seen about ever review one can imagine
and read up a good bit on them. they just never really stuck out to me Doc. the tone is
almost lifeless to a degree. but we gotta remember in their day they were really something, but
compared to todays gear they sound very bland to me. like a beef roast with no seasonings.
where in teh hell did you get that at?
Iommi was always Laney
He did play Orange on the Whistle stop show, but he had said that he used Laney because they were local .
i know of this but thought he did marshall too at some point. wow. good call.
I have never seen him with a Marshall.
Clapton picked up a Dumble a number of years ago, and I watched a couple of clips where he was using it live ... it was one of the worst tones I've heard out of him. I can't begin to explain the relief I felt knowing I wouldn't be gassing for one. I've never plugged into one, but having heard a number of clips over the years, I can't say they've ever done anything for me tone wise.
one of marketings biggest lies is to make a limited number of something, or price something
out of reach for most, get a "respected" person to push it and the crowd will go wild for it.
we all are in love with something we know we cant obtain. its in all of us by nature i think.
i believe thats where this amp got its fame. SRV had one. OMG if i could just get one i could
sound like him. be like him. my friends will love it. see what im getting at? same with the klon.
so many dang clones out there sound exact for $200 or less why in thee hell would somebody
pay that stupid amount for an original? sure i get it, play authentic and i agree, but when authentic
is stupidly priced and for no reason, not me bro.
besides, with a good clone and im coming to ya live, if you can see my board and know im cloning,
your to damn close lol. thats the only way you will know cause the clones are to damn good these days.
I knew that Iommi used Marshall early on, & at various points, I just wasn't sure when...
scroll about ½ way down the page:
Wow learn something new every day.
Thanks for posting that Dogs ..
I shall now bite my tongue.
I imagine the Nuge used a Marshall at some point but he was a guy known for using Fenders- at least in his glory days.
Just watched one of his YouTube "shows" the other day- an interview he did with Jimmy Mcarty- and they were both raving about the Gibson/Fender combination. A cranked Fender with a Gibson does sound pretty damn great; sometimes Gibson through a Marshall gets a little thick or muddy (yes, I know, sacrilege. lol). The tone McCarty gets through his little Fender is excellent.
Im pretty sure Iommi was using Marshalls on the original Heaven N Hell tour 80-81
Michael Lee Firkins making a Fender smoke...
They're probably road worthy enough, Mesas are actually sort of a hot-rodded Fender combo..But I do remember seeing Widespread Panic some years back, and John Bell was apparently having issues with his Mesa head, the roadies even brought out a second head, which also didn't work..And John was obviously getting pissed!
He wound up playing his acoustic through the P.A. the rest of the night.
But in all fairness to Mesas, amps-Any amp, is going to go kablooy sometimes.
For me personally, if I were to go with any amp other than a Marshall or a Fender, it would be a Soldano.
A Mesa would be cool, they're great amps..Especially the old MK IV's with the untolexed wood cabs.
