A built in dummy load to shut off speakers if need be. We used some super high end tube sockets and front mounted power damping and line level output. We also used an aux Filament transformer for the heaters for lower noise. I think that might be it. Probably missing something but that is what I recall off the top if my head.


So, if I buy a stock Scorpion head, in essence ,I'll have the same thing Billy's gigging with? In other words, would he still get the same sound out of the stock head?

Do you know what he was using previously?

He used everything! LOL I can't believe the different gear that I have seen him play with on live performances on tv. For a while it seemed like it was something different every performance. He's not as bad as Joe Perry. When I saw Aerosmith Joe had a good 7 different amp heads up there. They were all custom boutique heads.
I like to rock!!!!

Yes essentially the amp is the same but sonically the same.
