|The 70's: (Info supplied by Rick Turner of Alembic)
Jerry used an extensively re-worked Strat. He played into a fender Twin Reverb amp with preamp outputs going to a Mcintosh 2300 amp. This powered three Alembic B-12 speaker cabinets which were stacked on their sides, so that he had a vertical column of speakers extending about eight feet into the air. They were stacked like this because it gave a much wider horizontal speread to the sound, with less spill going up into the rafters.
For Speakers he used JBL E120s stacked in a verticle cabinet in four then eventually three speaker configurations.
