I've seen live clips and somehow the Steinberger seems to get that tone. Dunno how....

I've heard for YEARS he was using a Peavey T-40.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it! :wink: :shock:

Interesting link.

I've also heard that during those years, he also used Ovation Magnums, Peavey T-40's &
Steinbergers.

But, since I have a T-40... :wink: :mrgreen:

I'd say Steinberger. I had one during that period, and I was really into what top bands used them. I remember trying to copp Ross's tone with mine.
