To be honest, I’m not 100% sure where it was set, I stepped on it at the beginning of the show and it made me smile so I left it where it was. I’m thinking more than halfway but less than 3/4. Tone was probably 75% to the treble side. Brad needs to make a double pedal version of both of the Solar Flare and Earth Drive so you can toggle back and forth more seamlessly . . . he really needs a quad version with 2 of each . . . but that’s crazy talk :D

Good Lord, that would really be amazing . . . and a disaster at the same time . . . because I would have to buy two new pedals!

Jerry rig tone test from New Year's Eve show. Digging on my Coscia Guitars "Bella", Maestro Twin, MC2100, JBL E120. Using the Qtron Silver Box w/R32 68k mod.

My band got a new keyboardist--Woody Rose--from the band Pure Flavor. Happy New Year!

You guys might find this interesting since I'm using the Tone Tubby Purple Haze speakers.

My rig is pretty basic - SMS Classic with JG Mods into Rocktron Velocity 300, out to either one or two Tone Tubby Purple Haze speakers. I have an Earth Drive, a Solar Flare, and use a QTron.

First Clip is a staged practice room video - this is about as clean as my rig can be, low guitar volume with the speaker mic'ed to the sound board (missed the bobby lick at 1:50). The second clip is higher guitar volume live situation with no cabinet mic - I think I kicked on the Solar Flare for the solo at 3:00. The third clip is a mic'ed cab, but I'm playing thru 2 1x12s and using a Mesa 50/50 power amp - I kicked on the Qtron at the 4 minute mark (bunch of crowd noise).

Nice! Liked the tone on the second cut the best. Think you have a bit of a Dickey Betts influence in the Franklin's solo, which gave it an interesting spin. In any case, I liked it. Nice playing.

Thanks man! You caught me, I am certainly not a Jerry purest - not that I don't want to be... it's just too late!
I've been hooked on the Dead since the late 70's, but this is the first true Dead tribute band I've been in (we've been together for 1 year now). My other ventures have done dead tunes, but they were more like Americana versions.

I've been jamming to Jerry for decades, but as you guys know, covering him live takes a lot of effort - and what a joy it is!!

Hey folks,
Bob Stirner here from the Philadelphia based band Box Of Rain.
Box Of Rain focuses on 68-74 era Grateful Dead complete with Pig Pen vocals and harp!
I've played in many groups over the years including Living Earth and currently Boris Garcia which is an original Jam Grass band that has been produced and collaborated with Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth.
My wheel house has always been '72 as a benchmark for Garcia's tone, country infused styling's and his ( IMHO ) massive improvisational peak.

My rig and sound try to center around those elements and as compared to Jerry's later 80's tone are pretty simple really... Fender style guitar into Fender amps , no where near as bright.
In this vid I happen to be using a Scarlet Fire Wolf that I massaged with Alembic parts and pickup swaps, I have since moved back to Strat's with Blasters installed.
My rig is .....
Fender 66 Showman
Fender 65 Bandmaster
Fender 69 Bandmaster Reverb
3 Mesa 1-12 open back cabs with JBL K120's
Hard Trucker 2-12 with early 1968 Fender issue JBL D 120's ( notice the orange dome covers!)
