August 22: The Palace, Hollywood, CA.
First gig with Dumble amplifiers.
Byron’s Diary [Ed. note: Byron Barr was SRV’s tech during this period] for August 22: “Probably
the plushest club I’ve been in yet. Sell out. First gig with Dumble amps. Pretty rough, but we
still got great reviews.”
Stevie’s was one of very few Steel String Singers made. It was a “clean,” loud amp ( 100
or 150 W) with no overdrive section. The standard model used 12AX7 preamplifier tubes
and 6L6 power amplifier tubes and a standard Dumble tonestack with an optional tonefilter.
