I am racked to see Top once again coming to VA. Seen them every time they have been here all the way back to the early 70ties. I am in a Top Tribute Show and I have seen on utube Rev. Willies rig run down, but to my dismay, not Mr. Hills . Is there any chance or is there a place that might show or talk about his unique monsterous growly kick ass bass sound and tone. I have tried several things and got it close but still not to his standards. Anyway, can't wait to see the guys this month. Gonna throw down. Hope I get my backstage so I can see the real deal. Take care all. THAAAAAAANNG !

    I'd like to see that too, I saw the rig BFG was using on youtube as well, not sure if that's what he currently runs. Those guys have warehouses full of stuff to choose from. I did read that on Rythmeen both Billy and Dusty used the same amp rig... a custom Marshall 100?? with 2 12's in a combo cabinet. Billy said that he used the Bionix Expandora a lot but Dusty plugged straight in and his sound was due mainly to "his bass pounding paws" more than any equipment he used.
