Re: guitar amps
Sounds like Paul Drescher. There was an article on him in Guitar Player in the late 80's or early 90's which showed his tape delay system you're describing.

Question: does anyone remember/know of a looper/composer type who's name I believe was Paul Dresser or something like that from the early 80s? I saw him at the Walker Art Center and I recall being transfixed. I'd like to get some of his music. I believe he was from California and something makes me think it was the San Fransisco area. He had a reel-to-reel with the arms extended several feet in each direction. He also had what looked to be a set of pedals off a large church organ that he'd hacked into his reel-to-reel to control record on/off and track on/off. He did pieces with a guitar and others with a simple casio keyboard. Finally, he played bare foot, I think to better work the organ pedals. Thanks in advance for any info.
