One of the guitar mags for December (may still be on the racks) interviews Carlos and discusses his newest equipment lineup. He is now using a dual amp setup, including both Mesa/Boogies and Dumbles. Hope this helps.

Santana used Fender Twin Reverb and Marshall amps in the really early days (around 69-71).. on Woodstock he used a black amp head and cabinet, don't know what kind of amp it was.. maybe Acoustic.

Re: Santana amp

At Woodstock he certainly used and Acoustic head and cabinet. I saw him at the Paramount (NYC) and all he used was (looked like) a Fender Twin Reverb.

Actually, the amp Santana used at Woodstock was a Gallien Kreuger, the first one ever made, just a proto-type actually. You can read a little more about this at the GK homepage: http://www.gallien-krueger.com/ABOUT_GK/HISTORY/history.html

But there's one thing that I've always wondered about..
How did Carlos (and Neal Schon) got that thick distorted sound out of their Fender amps without pedals? Cause, I mean, a Fender Twin is a very VERY clean sounding amp, and Carlos' sound was (and still is) very fat and creamy.
