I've always wondered what Frampton's signal chain was like in HP. He states he used the Ampeg combo for solos, did he have an A/B switch? I've never seen anyone with an A/B switch back in that era. Also, any other effects he might have used? Rangemaster? Love his tone and amazing playing!

He probably used that Ampeg in the studio, and Marshalls live.

Possibly, but I think in the interview he was referring to the Fillmore live album.

I recall seeing a photo of the stage from that period and I could see the black flag panels.

i could buy in to that. my Germino Fillmore (post-dual rec black-flag) really gets close with Les Paul Custom/Throbak pickups...more on the Frampton side I suppose (left ch.Fillmore album) if i jack up the higher EQ knobage. i guess Marriott was using the Epi guitar ?
