    I'd run gear like that if I had roadies to lug it for me too! My 1x15 SR is more than heavy enough at 54 lbs for now.

    Good article. I've never been a big SRV fan, but I'm always interested in people's tone quests. We're all trying to get that sound in our heads.

    I actually thought about that later. Good call.

    Seriously, a standard 75ish-pound 4x10 SR is already too heavy! when i think of all the crap I used to lug out for gigs, it seems so silly nowadays... a mic'd up Champ gets me thru most friday nights lately.

    I had an 86 lbs Crate VC5212, and was doing a regular gig that was up a flight of stairs. My Valve Jr became my best friend.

    Would been interesting to see where he would of went had he lived equipment wise . I find it interesting he didn't want to really play that loud but had to for that sound he wanted and was looking to have a custom amp made. Would be cool to see him playing his signature strat too !!

    When I first heard Texas Flood, I immediately thought of Johnny winters' debut album; straight-forward, big tone, and aggressive playing I think there's a Texas thing going on (they've turned out a LOT of original and fabulous guitarists) and also Tommy Shannon on bass on both records had a lot to do with the feel the records shared.
    I saw SRV 3 times and as his rig grew, I thought his tone got thinner and thinner. For me, I'm all about his blackface Fender amps era.
