**The bass rig fans most associate with you is the Acoustic 370 head and the Ampeg 2x15 cabinet. Were there any specific reasons that you settled on that combination?** But I bought the Ampeg 2x15 cabinet from a guy who I worked at Kinkos with. I wish I knew more about the history of that thing, I have no idea how old it is. It’s built like a tank. I’ve had it for almost 30 years. It’s beat all to hell, but it’s not about to fall apart. It has no wheels, which was great in terms of fitting it into the van and not taking up a lot of extra space. But because we would slide it in and out of the van on its side, all of the vinyl eventually peeled off that side and splinters started coming off of it. This enables you to see the excellent dovetail joints that have kept it solid. They don’t build them like that anymore. It also has about 50 clutch head screws in the back. Getting in there is a pain the butt. I have never thought to change them out. The speakers that were in there originally were Altecs, but at some point I blew them out and after re-coning them a few times, I bought a pair of EVM 15B Series IIs that sounded really good and held up pretty well. I think one of them has kind of lost it a little bit, but I haven’t fixed it because of hardly playing.more
