It is great music and I used to listen to it about 70% of the time. But there is lots of other great music out there and also other great musicians.

Yeah I'm around that number...80% or so but everything else is older music..Beatles, Doors ect... I know there is current music but it rarely grabs me the same way

This might sound dumb but what kind of guitars does John K play? I see he used a different guitar on the last tour. I should prob know this but I dont. :/







Hey GreatestStory...

John K is currently using a Paul Reed Smith. Prior he has used mostly a Carvin. All his guitars have what we musicians call "Jerry Mods". That means they have an On Board Effects Loop (OBEL) and a Unity Gain Buffer (UGB). The UGB is an on board preamp that allows the guitars sound to not be degraded by the long double cable run needed by the OBEL. That is why Jerry had two wires coming from his guitar and why most "Dead" guitarist have two as well. The OBEL allows the guitarist to turn on their effects from the guitar. It also keeps the effects stable and provides for a much more predictable effect response.

The OBEL was Jerry's personal invention.
The UGB was designed by John Cutler, the bands 90's FOH mixer and long time audio guru.

This is probably way more info then you wanted.

I have never heard these things referred to as "Jerry Mods" by ANY of the guitar players that I know.

You can never be good if you are trying to be someone other than yourself.
