Jeff Buckley’s Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Trem-o-verb Combo

access_time First seen circa 1995

Used most notably during the Live in Chicago, and Live in Glastonbury concerts in 1995, alongside a Fender Vibroverb ’63 Reissue (Jeff’s main amp, even in the earlier years). It is not known for which purpose Jeff used the Mesa Boogie combo, but it was either a dedicated “dirty sound” amp or a backup in case something went wrong with the Vibroverb.

Be that as it may, given that Michael Tighe – Jeff’s guitarist, used not only the exact same model himself, but also a Fender Vibroberb identical to Jeff’s, it is likely that the band purchased a pair of these for each guitarist to use during the ‘Grace’ tour.
