    Re: Ed King's "Redeye." One of the most iconic (and best sounding!) bursts on the pla

    That looks wonderful, and nice video too to give us a snapshot of how it must sound like in person.
    Thanks CD & Ed!

    Charlie, what was the neck like? The reason I ask is that I tried a Redeye up at Dave's last year and was kind of shocked at how large the neck was (played a Greg Martin the same day and that was one super comfortable neck). It was almost shaped like a 57 Goldtop RI (big, round, fat). IIRC I thought Ed said something about later in the run, they changed a few things and he was not particularly happy about it (after #80 or so). Not trying to cast asparagus on anything but how did it feel?

    Ed, Thanks for posting that video. That's the magic right there. Thanks to you I bought a Carr Mercury V. What an incredible amp!! I got the head version. Here's a quick video with the attenuator set at about 1 watt.

    OK! I Love that and I have a Theile! I may get one and hit a 15" JBL with it as well. I like it better with your Theile than the combo and wondered about that. The Carr amps in the combo cabs have something I don't care for in the sound which I describe as a pronounced K sound in the back of the throat. This corrects it while still keeping the Carr sounds I like. Now I gotta decide between this and the Swart Stupor AST Beasty Thingy if I can figure which one the Professor and Mary Anne use.
    Renderit, You have an interesting perspective and your posts aren't boring...
    Ren, all in all, I'm giving you a C- today's posts...
    Most of what you write with regards to my posts is cryptic nonsensical gibberish like this. I would prefer if you actually added something to the conversation but hey, I haven't walked in your shoes. So being as nice as possible: I look at your posts as if I was dealing with an eccentric cousin who comes to visit unannounced.

    Thanks for listening, Renderit. I am happy you liked it.

    I have always liked a closed back cab for the tight bass and focused tone, and at my age anything more than 35 lbs is bound to cause me some back pain.
