Oooo Yeaaa... that 12/28/83!
What a great video for watchin' the man do his thing. Smokin' out of the gate!
Love that Birdsong Chinacat! There's like 20+ different jerry tones in birdsong alone, all clean. The guy could get so frickin much outta that rig!

Not sure this is right. E72 was before Veneta and would have had less powerful amps. I believe Jerry was using an MC275 for both. I don't think Jerry went to a rack mount Mac until 1973, maybe very late '72. The pure Twin sound was probably into 1970 or so.

In pictures from the era around E72 you can see that the power sections of the Fender amps were hooked up to the speakers.

Phil was still using the Showman output sections until summer of '72, when he went to the MC3500s.

I could be totally wrong, but my ears confirm.

Of course, we all the know the difficulties of trying to document this stuff decades after the fact. Even the people who were there can't provide anything really definitive!

9-12-82 = MC2500 no Budman - 4 JBL's

This is when Budman(MC2300) blows up and the MC2500 is incorporated until spring of 83. This video and the audio factually show this. My assumption is that he FRIED the Sentry which was causing all the weird transients as the amp works all the way to the end of Mingelwood when he blows it up. You can hear Jerry state that in the audio. The 2500 comes out and you can hear the reverb pan splashing as big Steve moves it to put the 2500 in service on top of Budman. You see the results in the Video, but you hear the stage banter in the audio.

Good Ear, not a lot of people that can hear that! :cool:

Should mention 2 ohm speaker load into most likely the 8 ohm speaker tap on Budman and the 2500.

Also, Edited above, NOT Samson and Delilah but Minglewood is when he blows the sentry. Give it a listen. Rock and Roll Never Sleeps.
