It's his personalised stash case
It's not like anyone actually hears much of what he plays anyway.
I've never understood why he is so famous...
Not even mic'd!
No, they're too loud anyway!
Maybe playing in two of the greatest bands in the history of music had something to do with it.
Only the Micro Cube actually works.
The front of that rig looks a little different
the cube serves as a monitor to dial in that 19 inch rack underneath and the fulltone Tape Echo.
Still doesn't quite explain it.
Being a guitar player in two of the greatest bands ever would most certainly explain why he is famous.
When I saw the RS in Arnhem in 2017 Woody was pulling a lot of weight, got the impression that he was the core, while Keef was decorating and, with Charlie, makes the Stones 'sound'.
I love his work with the Faces/Rod Stewart. He had a distinctive sound in that era which was an integral part of that music. But he's apparently found his niche within the Stones too. It could be that anyone other than Jagger, Richards and Watts are surplus to requirements and the other players know that and work within that framework. But Zemaitis Ronnie rules.
Listen to his solo albums or check out a Stones concert. Last time I saw them (2016?) Ronnie crushed on some extended solos.
Who is Carlie?
Sorry, just figured it out, Doh!
Ron carries most of the work now. Have you seen Keefs hands?
Are you a musician ?
You know, that plays and knows what goes into playing in a band ?
Ron has been doing the heavy lifting in the Stones for years now.
Watch the doc on their South American tour and the whole Havana gig for evidence of that.
He was the backbone of the Faces and, just to treat yourself, go listen to the live Jeff Beck Group stuff that has come out in the last few years.
He was/is an amazing bassist .
Ronnie is no dummy.
The Micro Cube is probably the best sounding and most rugged little practice amp ever made. I've tried 'em all and keep coming back to it.
The only thing they need to add is a speaker-out jack. I have two (an original version I and a GX version 2) and I added a speaker-out jack to both. If you try this mod, keep the jack isolated from the metal chassis because they don't share a common ground.
A Micro Cube plugged into an extension cab sounds huge. And it's freaking loud too. Try it into a 4x12 and it will blow your mind. I'm using the GX to run my homebrew Leslie cab and it's a thing of beauty.
Here's some pics that show how to do the mod (click to enlarge):
I been aware of all RW work for years. He’s a very soulful player. Some of the post on this thread are really head scratchers for sure.
No problem ,the actual people who matter ,you now the ones employing him in three of the most important and best bands in the history of music ,DO understand.
