I’ve been in love with Steve Stills’s tone from the CSN tour of 1994. Tele through a 4×10 Deluxe. Fat, rich tone with the perfect amount of break-up when pushed.
But I need something smaller and more sonically versatile for gigging.
I’ve learned in my travels that power conditioning helps solid state tone. A high quality transformer will take away a lot of the coldness of solid state tone.
I might end up with a Line 6 Pod and a small ‘personal monitor’ but I was hoping for a proper amp. 🙂
May have to ask the local guy to build me something!
