    Supposedly Truth was an AC30 or two.

    Edit: beaten to it again. My timing sucks this week.

    I read they got that muffled tone by putting the amps inside a cupboard

    That "Let me love you" riff sounds so lo-mid dirty growling I'm surprised it's an AC30..

    I've always thought the same thing. Even with a Marshall Supa to thicken things a bit. I've tried with my MKII, and it doesn't quite get there. Normal input perhaps?

    I think the AC30-in-a-cupboard was used on Beck's Bolero, which was recorded a full two years before the rest of Truth. The rest of that album sounds like a Marshall to me.

    Didn't you guys know!? "Let me love you" was recorded with a 64 SG junior, a plexi and an OCD!

    Re: Jeff Beck's "Yardbird" burst

    Truth is all AC30, stuffed into a cupboard. Beck's Bolero is the only track on that album that doesnt have that muffled tone. Jeff didnt get his Marshalls until after Truth was recorded.

    Re: Jeff Beck's "Yardbird" burst

    Damn Yannick that really does sound like it! Is it me or was the Fulltone Plimsoul pedal modeled after Jeff's tone from that time?

    I do think that the Plimsoul name was a wink to the Jeff Beck tone of that era! The Plimsoul has been on my board for more than a year now and it isn't going anywhere! It's a very versatile pedal that can go from tubescreamer to ocd in a jiffy!

    I know what you mean! Nothing beats the organic overdrive of a great tube amp! Pedals are close but no cigar...

    Joe gets quite close with a Sola Sound MKII - note how he rolls down the volume on the guitar:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhJoIzPsUBM

    Some of the Supa Fuzzes/Tone Benders that Sola Sound made had 0.015µF caps instead of 0.01µF, which makes them a lot thicker sounding.. No idea what was inside Becks pedals, though.

    Re: Jeff Beck's "Yardbird" burst

    Never seen this great thread before! Wish all those photos would open...

    Lots of speculation few of them know, the Soul of the Yardbirds was created ...in some bizarre space.


    Here a 1966 video, terrible image but that is the Yardbirds burst. Looks like a Dark Bourbon burst. Was this rhe obe stolen from Jbgroup tour? Or did beck strip this?

    I know this was what he was using at Catalina Show in 1966. And used on Roger the Engineer...

    This video needs you to click on open in youtube link. Beck and Page

    Re: Jeff Beck's "Yardbird" burst

    I think I finally figured out that Yardbirds burst, was not the same guitar that was stolen from Beck in 1969....He had purchased that, apparently in 1968.

    This Yardbirds burst I guess, from reading this thread, was stripped during repairs but appeared onstage and used occasionally. Jeff apparently purchased the 1954 Oxblood at some point.

    I sounds like all that explosive, radical creativity, in 1965 and 1966. during 100's of tour shows a year, came to a breaking point.
