What amp?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what would be the best page amp i'am looking for the tone in the film "Led Zeppelin live at royal albert hall 1970" I play a les paul and what would be the best amp? A Marshall JTM 45, A Marshall 1959 SLP, or maybe a Reeves Custom Jimmy 50. I read somewhere that Page used hiwatts in 1970-71 tours. this reeves amp is supposed to be an exact replica of his main hiwatt amp he used.

Well i checked out some clips of that Reeves amp you mentioned and it doesnt sound as zep like as i feel it should have done.

It has a sort of compressed almost 80s sounding gain to it, and i feel you'd do a lot better with a marshall.

Although do feel free to check out the clips on the reeves site or youtube, your ears are your best judge.

Best of luck,

Jono.

I'm not sure personally, but what i'd do is check out some live clips and find the closest amp to what pagey is using.

Although i'd imagine that any marshall will get you close enough.
