Hey everyone, i just stumbled across this interview with Nels Cline where it seems like he used a Route 66 to record his recent album "Initiate". It seems like he used it for the whole album as that is the amp he mentions.

That's a great interview. I've seen some you tube vids of nels playing with bill frisell where he is using a Z maybe a route 66.
Maz 18 combo, Tungston Crema Wheat, Vox handwired AC15, Z cab with Weber Blue Dog. Fans SP6, Strat with Kinman PU's, Tokai breezy sound tele, Fender B-bender tele, Hamer Newport, Larivee 0050, lots of other stringed instruments that don't get enough love.
Nels has used a Route 66 on the last couple independent recordings (i.e. non-Wilco) he has done in the studio. It really is a perfectly suited amp for him, as he prefers thick, warm tones without all the treble found in most amps, and it takes pedals extremely well. And I assume he favors the Route 66 whenever he doesn't need the extra headroom offered by his Schroeder DB7. He's also splitting his time between the loft in Chicago and his place in New York, and it's probably safe to assume that the Schroeder stays in the loft. Seems the Route 66 is his current non-Wilco favorite.
He's a really easy guy to talk to, and he likes to provide a lot of detail about everything he is into, so I'll be sure to ask him about it next time I see him (I end up seeing at least one of his "side projects" every year -- he's extremely active in the music scene of which I consider myself an exceedingly minor part [if it can be called a "scene"...]).

Nels had this really cool little write up, I forgot where I saw it but he talked about using different amps at different clubs and the Pro Jr was one he really liked. It was neat to read him say things about each amp at each venue.
I found it faster than I thought I would! nelscline.com/amp-du-jour IMHO really good read. I am learning that sometimes less is more, I like a Twin but I have to keep my M12 at or below noon so I could not imagine trying to get a twin to sound right.

GuitarZ: Thank You Z-Talk! I blew the dust off of my Signa Drive to plug in and was scratching my head on my old settings. I finally thought to do a search here and found a Z-Talk thread from 2011 with my settings. Nice!

GuitarZ: The Mrs jumped into action to find me a cancellation & called multiple spots. One said they had one now if the person didn't show up. She said GO! Went & got the shot. Called the Mrs. She says Where are you At? Went to the wrong one. Guess I don't listen.

j4gitr: Second Pfizer shot gave me a sore arm I felt sluggish, but played a couple hours of guitar with a friend, and ran an errand. Afternoon nap just about set me right.
