Extremely loud. I'm pretty sure I mentioned that before about the Sunns, and Leslie West. I was 7-8 feet away from Leslie West at the first Mountain Concert. And then a few backstage as well.

Yeah, I remember you talking about that now. I found some info about that Coliseum PA system: https://psychedelic-rocknroll.blogspot. ... ystem.html I guess Hendrix was using that with his guitar, as well. Someone had one for sale on Reverb: https://reverb.com/item/3387478-sunn-co ... en-hendrix

The Sunn Amps were just all around, totally incredible. Like I've stated before, at one time back then, I believe about all of the big name headliners played through a Sunn.

Well, John Entwistle ran his for many years, at least until The Who call it quits the first time around 1982, and for the Live Aid show in 1985, from when he started in 1967, according to the "Who Tabs" site. Although, they weren't the same amps, but he stuck with the brand.

He on occasion toyed with an Acoustic 360, but not what he considered his primary head.

I didn't know that. I know Paul McCartney used an Acoustic 360 in Wings, at least early on for awhile.

Acoustic heads were like Sunns. They popped up everywhere back then. Good amp heads were just that.

I know they had them at Woodstock, and John Paul Jones used one for many years, up until towards the end. Then he used early Gallien Krueger and Trace Elliot amps in 1980. Apparently, the preamp section of the Acoustic finally overheated and caught on fire, from what I've read about it. He did have it for at least 10 years, though. Speaking of Trace Elliot, you ever try out their stuff?

No, I never did anything with the Trace Elliot. I've always heard positive things about the line though.

I've played through them in the shops many moons ago. Expensive as hell, but they sounded really good, too. The heads had UV lights on them, so the front end glowed up when you turned it on, for a stage effect, and you can also see your controls on a poorly lit stage, I suppose. I think the people that originally designed them went on to start Ashdown. Peavey owned the brand now. I think Gibson may have at one point, but I'm not sure. They were always really decent, from what I've understood, besides what I've heard from trying them out. I don't recall hearing anything too negative about them at all.

I've always identified them with the green lit fronts.

Yeah, that's what they had. Now, all they seem to be making is those tiny, 200 watt heads that can fit in your back pocket, and little cabs to match, with 2 x 8" speakers, and I think a 10" one. I think they have those as combos, as well. I think that's actually pretty cool they can make bass gear that small. Maybe they'll get back to bigger stuff down the road, who knows? Or they can expand on what they are doing now and make like 500 and/or 800 watt rigs for bigger places. Of course, you could always stack two or three of those little amps together, but then you need the additional cabs to go with it.

I think I'd take a pass on those. Just a bit too small.

That's new technology for you. You can put a bass amp in your back pocket. I'm wondering how well they'd stay put on a cab, though. You know, bass vibrations and all of that. Then again, I've kept pedals on my cab, with the cables plugged in and they stayed put.

I never had much of a problem of things vibrating off of cabs. Those little things can be pulled off though.
