Howdy everyone. I've been a lurker on this forum for a bit and have finally joined up. I play guitar with a Dead tribute band out of Syracuse,NY. We call ourselves Pearly Baker's Best and are currently doing some dates backing up David Gans. I have been pretty resistant to "going down the rabbit hole" and copping Garcia's licks and tones since I don't wish to be pigeon holed as another "Jerry" guy. This band is getting pretty good and I've always loved the Dead so it's so much fun to really dig in and learn the tunes. I've been in tons of blues,rock and country bands where I'd have to sneak Dead and JGB covers into. Anyways, the point of this rambling introduction is I'm taking the dive and assembling a small Garcia rig. I currently use a Phiga Bolt through a Dr Z Maz 38 Sr head into Z-Best cabinet. Love the tone but really looking to get closer to Garcia's magic recipe at a manageable volume. I've read just about ever single post on this forum pertaining to Jerry's rig and found it to be very informative. Big thanks to everyone!! Anywho,anyone got an MC50 they want to sell?
No MC50 for sale...but welcome anyways!
