• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

    Seriously Ed, try a Dallas Rangemaster type treble booster, preferably w/germanium transistor, and hi, mid & full range options.

    What amp is Clapton playing through in this video?

    IMHO this is Clapton's best tone and playing since his D & D days, but while he has his tweed Twins on stage there is also a smaller amp on a stand behind him. It's mic'd up and at the video's end it looks like Clapton moves over to it to get that final feedback. Does anyone know what that...

    Is this just about the best Les Paul tone ever???

    :wail http://youtube.com/watch?v=Tvr5HV_Bpbo Ghostly black and white images and some might complain about the sound quality but its a miracle this footage ever existed at all and a bigger miracle that it has survived. I don't know what else to say. Over the past 40 years I've heard the iconic...

    Wow--Richard Thompson tearing it up on an ES-175!!!

    Here he is with the Fairport Convention around 1968 absolutely wailing on an ES-175. This is very rare footage, and he was only 19 at the time.:wow http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTHgr19CaRk

    Looking for an old thread of Gaston's

    Last year (or the year before) GastonG posted a couple of soundclips of late 70's recordings he had made with his '59 Burst played through a Brown Deluxe and a Marshall 50 watt head. Those were killer tones and playing and I wanted to hear them again but can't find the thread???

    Man, Is this Mick Taylor again w/Mayall?!?!?!?!

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=vNGkr-UvcsU Guitar starts at about 0:48, really takes off by 1:00. Not much video but again unreal tone from a live show. Is this Taylor and if so what song??? What show???:wow

    After hearing this, I think Mick Taylor may be the greatest Bluesbreaker!

    Found this last night: http://tela.sugarmegs.org/_asxtela/ Simply scroll down to the JohnMayall1968-12-04 show (they're all listed alpahbetically) to hear some of the best Les Paul tone ever! While Clapton set the standard, and Green certainly ran well with the baton, Taylor, IMHO simply took...
