      How does he hook up the matchless amps?

    2. GuitarGeek GuitarGeek says:

      Billy chains them together. Into Input 1 on first amp > Output from Input 2 to second amp.

    3. BrotherWolf says:

      Does he normally play with both DD-3s on at once? I notice their settings are quite different. I’d love to hear which settings refer to which songs. I would assume the one set with much more delay is used for the Love songs as opposed to the Electric or newer songs.

    4. GuitarGeek GuitarGeek says:

      One is for short surfy slap-back delays and the other is for longer delays.

      This rig is so amazing! One of the best I’ve seen! But maybe that’s just because it’s so similar to mine.
