Secret 7 & 7 IS discovery?
One of my good pals, Mark Hobbs, is a MASSIVE Love fan and bought their
records back in the late 60's, early 70's. Each saturday, after he
finishes his organic veg and PG Tips shopping on the 3rd street
Promenade, he stops in the guitar shop and plays a variety of old starts
and Gibson SGs. He ALWAYS plays at least 3 Love songs (7&7, Feathered
Fish & House is not a Motel among them).
Well, yesterday he was playing through a Fender Vibrolux and shared
something with me. He asked me if I new that, to get the 'exact' Seven
& Seven Is tremolo sound, the SPEED and INTENSITY both need to be set at
exactly 7! So he dialed it up and, low and behold, there it was! Now I
need to call Johnny today and ask him about that because it never
occurred to me.
So, if any of you out there have any Fender amps (either vintage or
reissues) that have Speed and Intensity, PLEASE comment on this blog...I
want to see if everyone's amp does this or just this Vibrolux (which was
a '65 Reissue).
On a different note, Johnny Marr let us know that he is DIGGING THE NEW
BABY LEMONADE BEST OF CD!!!!!!
