In the video concert they've been playing on Palladia, Cobain plays what appears to be a Fernandez strat into a Mesa/Boogie Studio Pre-Amp with a Crown power amp and Marshal 1960 cabinet. I think Butch Vig has even mentioned in interviews that Nevermind was tracked with Kurt playing through the Boogie Studio Pre-amp.

I knew there was some of that Mesa crunch beefiness to his tone. My early memories from hearing Nirvana for the first time was thinking: "This is what heavy metal was missing"....and that was very deliberate, maybe from him, or from the producer

He just ran his distortion into the clean channel. He didn't use the Mesa for distortion.

Sorry capt crunch. Just speaking the truth. Thought he sucked then still do. The only good riff he ever wrote was a total boston ripoff, and that is the total truth.

Who cares. Cobain was over rated back then and still is.Everone except cortney love knows that Dave Grolh was and still is the reason anyone cares about nirvana.
