OK! Once and for all who here knows to the exact detail of what Hendrix used on his first couple of albums in the studio to get that sound. Marshall JTM/45 100 heads with Kt66's, or plexi's w/Mullard EL34'S? (w/Celestion G12M 20 watters) I've also read and heard rumors of Fender Blackface Twin Reverbs, Bassman heads with GE 6L6's. In speculation, I see it very plausible that he would have used Fender in the studio because of his previous association with Twins and evidenced also in his live at Monterey appearence where he has a mix of 1 Marshall stack and about 3 or 4 Fender Showman setups. I have seen clips of him with Sound City heads and have read he used them on the Axis album. I also heard he used a Tele besides a strat on Hey Joe. I find it fascinating as a guitar player hobbyist who enjoys good tone and understands that not until very recently was it possible to have all the elements available again to acheive these Heavenly tones, tubes, speakers, plexi clones, etc. Also any comments on his later BOG tones! I have read in one of his bio's of some guy out in California that would ready his gear for US tours. He would put 6550's in his Marshall super leads and upgrade his cabs with 75 watt Celestions taken from Vox super beatle cabs. I guess he would have also had different setups for studio/live use. LET THERE BE ROCK!
