In the beginning of the clip, you can see Freddie standing next to two combos, one of them very tall for a combo. Then at 2:35, you get a closer shot of the panel.

I'm thinking it's a Fender Super Reverb Silverface, but not positive about that.


Twin and Quad Reverb ? Albert Collins used those too.

I miss my friend.. RIP Oakland Danny...

Freddie King used quad Reverbs, twin circuit with 4-12" speakers. Albert Collins used super six reverbs, twin circuit with 6-10" speakers. Before that they both used super reverbs a lot, and before that tweed Bassman's, at least in Freddie's case, most likely AC too. JD
