    Hey everyone,
    Just found a video clip of Stanley walking through his rig on the last RTF Tour.

    Enjoy!

    Youtube is blocked in work (and I sit opposite from my boss anyways). Is this the premier Guitar video? I watched it last night and was interested to see he had a Fender amp in there.

    Something about Clarke is really fascinating me at the moment. I'm not the biggest fan of his tone on '70s videos I've seen, but that wide-range tone is still quite interesting. Digging his playing as well.

    Yes, it is. He uses the Fender guitar amp for the top end on his Tenor Bass. I am not sure if this is from the RTF IV tour, SMW or the Stanley Clarke Band.
     
  5. I believe that rig is from the SMV tour.

    There's a Hartke stack in the background so that would make sense.

    I saw the RTF Reunion Tour in 2008 and Stanley had that same little Fender Champ guitar combo amp then.
