Kevin Shields backline photo - mystery (acoustic ?) amp -

Post by Talpa » Sun Sep 16, 2018 8:30 pm

am sure someone has answered this before, sorry if so - at first i thought it was a Groove Tubes Soul-O combo but must be his acoustic amp. only 2 fotos i can find of it - beige combo in middle in top foto, and at 3:00 o'clock in bottom shot. that's gotta be an acoustic amp. TIA, & to owners of fotos:

p.s. mbv psa to JMI, Vox, /13, Hiwatt, Hi-Tone, Fender, Marshall [JTM,JMP,JCM] et.al. & credit to modern & vintage circuits/cones.

what a backline

SWR Strawberry Blonde?

Edit: or was it California Blonde? One is a 12 and one a 10, few different version of each.

Unrelated but that is an upsetting amount of amplifiers on stage. Like, I know that being super loud is the deal but like... sheesh.

The mics and positioning suggests different amps for different sounds and not the wall of amps sound, unlikely they are all on at once or cranked.

The mic positioning on the SWR in the top picture is... interesting.

Yeah... I haven't seen them live but that looks like it would sound like shit too.

My immediate thought when I see stuff like this and Dino is like "Oh ok, so we were giving Poison shit about doing this exact same thing but for you guys it's ok?" I dunno. it rubs me weird. Granted, I'm a fan of none of the aforementioned acts especially, but like, I can only imagine having to be the sound guys for these gigs. :wtf:

sounding sort of bad is kind of the point, haven't you guys heard Loveless? ;D

I guess there's Line6 spider "bad" and there's every-good-amp-ever-made-but-at-the-same-time "bad".

To be honest, if people were willing to indulge me, I would probably play with as many different amps as that and not really care if it sounds shit.
