There was a touch of sarcasm in my post, we invented it here.
Agreed, the audio sample of the mic'd Dr Z was not at all Pete-worthy. It lacked the characteristic roar of Mr Townshend's work.
Based on Pete’s answers to the interview questions, it seems like maybe skipping the volume pedal for the experiment may have thrown things off more than expected? It never occurred to me that he was using the volume pedal to “ride the crest” of the feedback. Other articles have always made it sound like a straight up impedance issue: set it and forget it.
I realized that I was just being funny also
That was a great clip, thanks for posting it. I love joe
When I saw Neil Young years ago, it was the mic'd Tweed and a huge bank of McIntosh PA amps to feed the space. It was super loud. Not sure if he Had any pedals.
I saw Neil Young back in the 60's, when he played with a Toronto band called the Myna Birds, his stage rig was pretty simple, orange Gretsch double cut Nashville, and that miked tweed Deluxe. I saw no sign of pedals.
At that time, they were touted as a Rolling Stones cover band, Rick Derringer was their singer, they were wild!!
You're right, Neil was all about loud/rough.
Photo of ''Old Black''. Guitar was originally any early P-90 Gold top. If that guitar could only talk. Look at that break angle between the bridge and the Bigsby.
Cool shot! Did you take it?
I'm not sure if "old black" was in use on the Rust Never Sleeps tour, but there was for sure a black LP when I saw him. Man were they loud. Probably the second loudest concert I've been to. Wish I could get that portion of my hearing back.
That break angle makes me cringe!
The funny thing is that Neil actually uses that crazy-angled Bigsby, and I don't remember to ever see him play out of tune!
