    Does anyone know what amp Kurt uses these days?

    I thought he always used Polytone amps but in a recent interview with him, I read that he switched to tube amps. He didn't say what tube amp though.

    Thanks.

    When I saw him in 2008 he was playing through a Twin Reverb, as far as I know that or similar is his amp of choice.

    i don't think he really uses polytone on live playing but i don't know. twins and similar seems to be like the home amp the club or theater put there to him. anybody knows about the no cover neck humbucker in his d'angelico? seems like he has done a mod in his main guitar

    what's this about no cover neck humbucker in the d'angelico? a seymour duncan '59?

    i don't know anything about pickups. but i have the d'angelico and looking around at pics of him with the guitar, the pickups look exactly the same as mine. can anyone shed some light on this?

    Kurt asks for Fender Twin Reverb in his rider, preferably Balck Face. He accepts the new reissue as well... I did the interview David is talking about here above, he likes the open and wider sound of tubes.

    I have seen kurt a dozen times in the past few years, only seeing him use twin reverbs. I thought he only used blackfaces, but he also used the 70's model silverfaces.

    When I saw him in Cambridge a couple weeks ago he was using the Twin Reverb mretfaster talks about. Same with his Vanguard gig in January.

    David, he pulled the cover off the neck pickup because he was hitting it with his pick and he didn't like the sound.
