print screen from the book Sonic Alchemy!

Tubby was fixing the damaged sound systems since there was a lot of competition then between the sounds...


Interesting that he used valves for bass and transistor amps for tops. Tubbys had a weight and treble systemClap

back in the day, early transistor amp didn't have the power to drive bass so valves were still used.

Now that is a serious system. Only ever seen Jack's system in the 80s reggae documentary and in a few you tube clips. It is true the whole lot ran off of one single amp full of KT88s?
