Live Review: Brad Paisley - American Saturday Night Tour - Comcast Theatre Hartford, Connecticut: 6/13/09 PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 16 June 2009 10:17
By Ken Volpe – GJD Contributor
One of the great things about Country music is that many of the artists are great singers as well as great guitar players. This seems to be somewhat absent these days in Rock and Pop music. Yes, there are exceptions in the world of Rock and Pop but the ratio still favors those on the Country music scene.  Brad Paisley certainly fits that bill with excellent vocal abilities and blazing guitar parts.
 
This is the third time that I have witnessed a live concert with Brad and his band.  To my ears they seem to be getting even better. The band is fuller and tighter sounding and Mr. Paisley himself has taken it to a higher level.  Another observation on my part was how the engineers really had the sound system dialed in and the video production was a perfect match for the music.
 
From a guitarist's standpoint, you really get to see Brad's versatility and dynamics throughout the night.  He plays a slew of Crook guitars and a wall of amplifiers and speaker cabinets courtesy of Tony Bruno Custom Amps and Dr. Z amplification.  Brad's guitar tones really cut through the mix and blend perfectly with the band.  Another thing that is very cool is how Brad is almost constantly moving around the stage while maintaining his composure with his vocals and his guitar.  That is the mark of a true entertainer.

Amp Insider with Brandon Montgomery: The Dumble Zone PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 02 June 2009 10:16
Part 1

GJD: There seems to be a lot of misnomers about Dumble amplifiers in terms of the models names, voicings, serial #s, etc.

BM:  I agree but I don’t think any one really knows all the exact details except the man himself.

GJD: In your opinion, why is there such a mystery and lack of clarity around a lot of the details about the amps.

BM: Well, I think there is a few factors that come into play.  First off, there is a lot of misinformation based on hearsay and
just like anything else, inaccurate statements that get repeated over and over end up being what people believe.

Second of all, there are less than 300 Dumble amplifiers in existence.  They are scattered throughout the globe and no two amps are exactly the same.  Also, there are variations upon variations which again lead to inaccurate descriptions.
