Many of my guitar friends would always mention Miles Davis and how he influenced so many fusion players. The first Miles Davis recording I picked up was Kind Of Blue. I was again floored, how some on could get a killer tone out of a Trumpet and make such simple music groove so hard. Below is some history on the Legendary Miles davis.
Miles Davis (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991) jazz trumpeter, bandleader, and composer was Widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, Davis was at the forefront of almost every major development in jazz from World War II to the 1990s: Miles Davis played on various early bebop records and recorded one of the first cool jazz records; Miles Davis was partially responsible for the development of hard bop and modal jazz, and both jazz-funk and jazz fusion arose from his work with other musicians in the late 1960s and early 1970s; and his final album blended jazz and rap. Many leading jazz musicians made their names in Davis's groups, including pianist Herbie Hancock, saxophonist John Coltrane, saxophonist Kenny Garrett, and guitarist John McLaughlin.
On March 13, 2006 Davis was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He has also been inducted into the St. Louis Walk of Fame, Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame, and Down Beat's Jazz Hall of Fame. Davis's influences included late 1960s acid rock and funk artists such as Sly and the Family Stone, James Brown and Jimi Hendrix.

I talked with Ted Weber and have e-mailed him many times when I was searching for Speakers. Ted was a very cool person and full of insight on the tones I was after. Ted came up with a formula that would become a huge part of my signature tone. We started with Chicago 60w 12's and Thame 60w 12's. From there Ted added his Magic to the Voice coils, Cones and whatever else that was needed. The end result was Magic! I use a combo of the Weber Chicago's and Thames, which I call Customs in my Marshall 4X12 Cabs, 2 Thames in my 2x12 Addrock Cab and a combo of Chicago and Thame in my Vincenzo 2X12 Cab.
The tune Move On you hear on my music link is all Ted Weber Speakers and cabs above through my Bogner XTC 101b. I have used Ted Weber Speakers for a very long time and won't change anything.
RIP Ted and thanks so much for the ear candy!
