Jimi Hendrix’s Sound City One Hundred SC105/L100access_time First seen circa 1968
Jimi used a single Sound City One Hundred amp briefly during the latter part of the 1968 North American tour, from around mid-March to early April. The amp seemed to have been used together with one of Jimi’s old Marshall JTM 45/100s. He started using this setup after a short stint with Fender Dual Shoman amps that broke after a few gigs at the beginning of the tour, followed by an endorsement deal with Sunn amp – that Jimi apparently hated so much that he requested for his old Marshall to be shipped from the UK.
In fact, a lot of things kept going and finally, Hendrix sent for Sound City and Marshall amps from London, his favorite ones and ended up with all the odd gear anyway. [Hugh Hopper, 1968-02-09 Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California USA, Crosstown Traffic]
