We recently had Tony Sarno perform here at Bose and it reminded how great the L1 is at distributing electric guitar throughout the room.

Tony was playing a vintage Tele through a Fender Pro Junior with a Sennheiser E609 placed slightly off axis. The T1 preset was Electric Guitar>Mic'd AMP E609.

Anyone else have a favorite combo?

Everyday workin' it.

PRS 513 + McIntyre Bluesmaker II with direct out (post power stage) - very similar to Lexicon 284 that was based on this design.

Travelling light - I'll just take the Mesa V-Twin instead of the McIntyre.

If I need lots of versatility and fast switching then I'll take the Line6 PodXTLive.

Since no one else is talking (why?) this is going out to my gig with me tonight.

It's been a very long time since I fired up my Carvin Quad-X amp. I used to run it through a stereo Mosvalve 500 into a Boogie 2x12 or 802s believe it or not.

Yesterday I ran a 77 Gibson Artisan into the Quad-X into the T1® to my Model II with 2 x B1s. Awesome. The one shown here is not mine, but mine is pretty much identical right down to the yellowed inlay in the headstock and the gleaming white inlay in the neck.

4 channels - no waiting

5 effects loops

9 tubes

Cabinet voicing

Noise gate on first stage of preamp

Mine (yes of course I have two) are circa 1992. Discontinued around 1994. Some folks are still wondering why.

I ran this into T1® Channel 4 using the Preset
Category: Electric Guitars
Preset: Gibson Les Paul

I was very pleased.

The Artisan also known as the Hearts and Flowers Les Paul is heavy, 12 pounds at least. Only to be worn with a neoprene strap for sure. We get Guitars for all kinds of reasons. I have no *good* reason for having this one but there is a lot of sentimental significance to it. So it's here to stay.

Gibson Artisan
I have a Fender Pro Junior & have used it with my Strat & an Audio Technica mic a few times.

I prefer going direct with a Boss Fender Deluxe Reverb Pedal.

I have also considered using a classic Pignose just for grins.

The other guitarist in one of my bands uses a Fender Blues Junior with his Strat all the time.

Oh boy ... do I have to pick a favorite?

My favorite right now is a Blackheart head and 12" speaker cab:

Blackheart 5W Class A

with an e609 hanging over the front:

Senn e609

My all time favorite is using a Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue ... 22Watts of pure joy:

Deluxe Reverb

But I noticed that Fender has reissued the '65 Princeton which would be an easier haul than the Deluxe Reverb:


So many choices, so little time. Smile

Fun stuff,
ooooooohhhhhhhhh.....Gibson Hearts & Flowers Artisan....drool....

Flashbacks to the days of beautiful Gibson guitars that weighed a ton...my back (and wallet) still ache...but, oooooooooohhhhhhhh................

I'm sorry, where was I, again? Big Grin

BTW: For those of you who were in Little Switzerland and met me face to face, prior to the seventies I was 6'2" tall...but I'm sure, somewhere in the US is a Les Paul that's still sustaining from the power chord I struck in the summer of '76...
