Here is a sb clip from a gig I did a couple months ago. It was just a trio with a backup vocalist.

This is my custom Artinger with waldo buffer equipped with a middle single coil Super Distortion (literally split in half). It's a little dirtier than the split Super IIs.
Going into '74 twin reverb with one K120 and Jerry mods. It is mostly clean on this tune, at one point I turn my Earth drive on in the loop.

lately I have been preamping my twin out to a ss power amp and it is a cleaner tone. But I dig this slightly dirtier, more compressed (sorta late 70s) tone too. I would love some feedback.

You've got some really great tone and excellent jerry style playing IMO.

Nice groove. Tight with great jammin. Your Jerry tone and chops sound great. Maybe a touch more reverb?
I love jammin to that tune :smile:

Thanks a lot guys. Helps when you have a really good rhythm section, which I did there! I really dig the tone of that guitar. I think all the components of Jerry tone add up but I think a hippie sandwich style guitar with maple body/neck and ebony fretboard is a part of the equation that sometimes gets overlooked.

I do struggle with the reverb level sometimes. It will sound wet enough to me in the room but sometimes listening back on tape, its a little dry. Guess that is what the knob is for :)

Nice playing! My immediate thought also was more reverb.

And while we're splitting hairs, I'd also go for a tad more treble, or less bass, or maybe a little of both. I hear a sort of "muffled" quality. Still, great tone.

Sounds great! How 'bout a pic of that guitar? I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on an Artinger as well.

I think it sounds a little "clipped" and maybe that is the muffled tone you are hearing too. I had 2 of the power tubes pulled on the twin, so the power section may be overdriving. I have the treble on 10. in the last couple weeks I have been preamping it out to a solid state class D power amp. Its no Mac but I am liking the results so far.
Also I made the choice to use a split version of the Super Distortion (same as Dual Sound) rather than the lower output split Super II pickup. So that is something you just live with. Get a bit more drive, sacrifice a bit of top end.

Here's an example of my current rig (that I really love). Troy Post Wolf w/ super 2s > Sarno preamp > McIntosh mc50 > jbl k120. At times I'm using Brad's Earth Drive, or his Solar Flare pedals, or both combined (which I really like).

Thanks to Waldo for the killer Jerry tone! I think this is the best Jerry tone live I've gotten. Clip from our Mother's Day set at the EKK in Clio, MI, 5.14.2017. Michigan's premier cannabis cultivation celebration. Cheers, MM

Thanks all. It helped that I told the sound man to mix me flat. Having fun with this band. Its quite a trip when things get cooking and I'm hearing this killer tone and I'm like "shit, that's me!". Pretty easy to hiccup when that happens :-) :-)

As usual not a Jerry rig per se but Jerrified Firebird, blackface modded 68 Bassman, Weber 12" ceramic Cali.

Bertha.

Band reunion.
