As posted by bassbrad, during his heyday with SRV he used a Peavey Max amp (which I think was basically a CS800 with a built-in bass preamp) and Peavey 3620 cabs. He mainly used his old "Olympic White" Jazz and a P-Bass with a 3-color sunburst that SRV gave him as a gift.
I have to agree with mchildree; Tommy's from the "Tone is in his hands" camp. IMO regardless of what brand of amp he plugs into, it will end up sounding like him.
I really admire his playing, he's one of my favorites.
