Gregg Wright – often referred to as the "King of Rockin' Blues" – has been touring UK clubs with the re-issued and revamped Carlsbro 50 Top DC and 4x12 cab.
Wright has been a leading US session player since the mid 1970s and has recorded and toured with the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Michael Jackson, The Gap Band, Spenser Davis and even the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. He was lead guitarist for Jackson's 1984 Victory Tour.
The eight-date tour across England and Scotland ran from October 31st to November 19th and also featured UK musicians Marty Prior on bass and Spencer Lee Horton on drums.
Wright is familiar with Carlsbro amps, having previously demonstrated for the company and on arrival in the UK, arranged for delivery of the 50 Top for the tour.
“Whatever you guys have done in the development of the 50 Top since I last played one, is outstanding. It's a completely different sound from the previous models I've used. My experience with the rig was an absolute pleasure and everywhere I played, people raved about the sound,” he said.
