Dallas Green: “This Matchless, which I found in a music shop in Toronto, is great and so simple. It has a master volume, volume and tone, and you can switch it from 15 to 30 watts. I love it. “There’s a 1x12 in there. It’s crisp, clear and it takes pedals really well. I’ve got this Morgan AC45 out with us, too, and we switch back and forth between that and this, and sometimes we have all three. I run the Matchless and the Rock Grinder both at the same time.” Note: The Morris "Rock Grinder" that Dallas is referring to is a custom made amp. Dallas Green: “Glen Morris is a guy from Welland, Ontario in Canada and he’s a custom amp builder. He built me a 100-watt head that I used in Alexisonfire for years and years and that’s the best-sounding amp I’ve ever played. “When I started doing City And Colour more and more, I wanted him to build me an amp because the 100-watt head would be too loud. The Rock Grinder is usually a two-channel 50-watt Bluesbreaker-type vibe but I didn’t need the two channels so what we did is we took out and disconnected some of the knobs. “Now it’s just like a 30-watt single-channel amp, almost like an AC30, but with a bit more to it. This is the amp that’s been with me probably for the last six years and it’s the bulk of my live electric guitar sound. The settings are just pretty much almost in the middle and the grind, which is your gain, is just adjusted depending on what the stage sounds like.”more
