  1. You can pick yourself up one. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Altec-1567a-Tube-Mixer-Serviced-Plug-Play/223672374594?hash=item3413e99542:g:insAAOSw1qhdg9RS I don't know if you recognized it, but in Forrest Gump when he was uplugging all the mics at the protest, those were the same Altecs.
  2. We have come a long way since the Altec 1567A tube mixers.
  3. I'm in the machining business and there's no such thing as good vibrations.
  4. It definetly has his signature use on it. Nice patina!
  5. Well, yes and no. The Fender Custom Shop has made them for other people.
  6. "On any Street" Dire Straits. Chuck Ainlay, Bob Clearmountain and Neil Dorfaman get it on this one.
  7. Me too. The 70's and the early 80's were the countrypolitain times. Yechhh.
  8. Well, we watched the last episode and we were not disappointed. Ken Burns did a stellar job on this and it should be noted as one of his best.
  9. I think you're going to have to just buy one (rent) and work with it. It is not like a tube amp that already has a sound built in. You're going to have to play with it a while.
  10. With something like the Kemper I think it boils down to how much time you want to spend with it. I'm sure people who have owned and used them for a while can get about anything they want out of them. With me, if I was in the market, I would buy it just to play with it to see what it is capable of. You're a bit more frugal than me, I think.
  11. Country is a blend of various styles of music from string bands, mountain music, blues, jazz (Bob Wills) etc. To this day we still see styles being blended into it though I'm not in agreement with some of it. I have always played country music, bluegrass etc.. It's just in my blood. Episode 5 is the Bakersfield sound which I really want to see. I love that West coast twang. Nothing like a Telecaster on the back pickup through a Twin Reverb cranked up.
  12. Yep, we have been waiting for it. We have seen the first two episodes and will watch the third tonight. Like all Ken Burns work it is of the highest quality.
  13. Me? I'm always trying to improve my flatpicking speed and accuracy as well as my thumbpick speed and accuracy like Jerry Reed and Chet.
  14. Carol Kaye told me that most of the players for the TB in the studio were studio folks. She told me the name of the guy who played Herb Alpert's part but I don't remember his name.
