    Pics of 70's artists with JBLs

    Got any pics of 70's (ok 80's or earlier) artists with JBL speakers in the shot? Studio shots or whatever, upload them!

    I'll start the ball rolling (I hope) does this pic of Steeley Dan show an L100 off to the left? It's the back cover to one of their albums.

    It's time consuming to find pics from the net by searching with the right key words first and seeing JBL on the pics after... but it's like a game and it's very funny to feed this thread
    "Souvenirs souvenirs"


    In 1968, Hendrix agreed to a 5 year contract with Sunn Amplifiers. In exchange for all the free equipment that the Experience needed, Hendrix agreed to offer his input for research and development. Hendrix started out with a 100S cabinet, loaded with one JBL D130 in the bottom and a LE 100S driver horn in the top. Later, the Sunn setup included up to five Coliseum P.A. tops - altered for guitar at 120 watts RMS each - with ten speaker cabinets loaded with two JBL D130s each. Hendrix soon stopped using Sunn because he got a lot of noise from the amplifiers (not from JBL) that he didn't like when playing at high volume levels.

    Pete Townshend 1967

    Pete used the Sunn 200S 2x15" rear-loaded folded-horn enclosures, which would have two JBL D140. Pete also appears to have occasionally used the Sunn 100S cabinet, which was the same size but featured one JBL D130 and one JBL LE100S midrange driver with high-frequency acoustic lens/horn. Both the 100s and 200s cabinets were 42″ high x 24″ wide x 15″ deep.

    According to Blair Jackson's excellent book "Grateful Dead Gear" all of the tie-dyed grille cabinets were supposed to be set up in a way so they made a single image. I think he said that lasted one gig then their crew gave up on doing that.

    Coming from Keef, I'd consider that a great compliment.

    Don't quote me... ...seriously...



    Tommy Chong 4311




    Kravitz slips into the "80's" by one year.




    And if Altec isn't considered a thread hijack (I'm new & rather fond of Altec), Fab 4 & 612c that also had a Duplex. I've read discussion that the 612's use is to blame for the 'floppy bass' on Beatles' recordings.




    John (& 'her') doesn't look offended by the Altecs. Even after a few years.




    Jimi & 1204?




    Looks like Elvis, but it's identified as Cash, and I think that could be a 2353.




    Marley & a 2395?




    Biaz & a plethora of vintage JBL sound reinforcement for the house. (Anyone identify the stage monitors? I thought JBL, but Yamaha had a similar sized horn.)




    SRV & Guy with a possible 4560.




    Plum wore "Harvest" out.

    Thanx for the resource, and for allowing me to join in. Cool thread.

    Mark Mothersbaugh, Devo

    Mothersbaugh with "TONTO" at his Studio, and a pair of 4333's I think. Stevie Wonder used this setup pretty extensively too

    Bruce Swedien mixing Michael Jackson's "Thriller"

    Photo taken during mixing of Thriller at Westlake studios. Some variant on the 4311? Port is not in typical position, Tweeter and Mid seem to be mounted to a plate which is mounted to the cabinet?





    ...With Quincy. First tape I ever bought.
