I have a silverface deluxe reverb too and I couldn't believe that he was only at 2. I usually run mine between 3 and 5, 2 would be way too low for stage volume with my amp.
Both Marty and Kenny's tone were to die for at that show :)
Like I was saying before, I was sitting in the third row so I heard the tone from the amp, not the PA and it was soooo good...
I noticed he was using a Radial Bigshot PB1 boost pedal. So maybe he gets his tone with low wattage amp and a boost. It looks like he uses SF Princetons on his show. That's what Kenny was using that night as well as far as I could tell.
I'm really just trying to get as close as I can to the tone I heard that night. So any pickup that's gonna put me in the ballpark is good enough for me. Clarence White's tone on Sweetheart Of The Rodeo would be cool too...
