The self-confessed reluctant guitarist shows off the vintage Teles and signature combos that power his bayou blues.

The smaller side of Tab ­Benoit’s amp setup is this Voice of the Wetlands (VOW) 90. This 2x12 combo is designed along the lines of a Fender Twin and is fed by the VOW 45. Benoit doesn’t run his amps in stereo but places a Neumann large diaphragm microphone in front of the amps to blend the sound of the two amps together, leaning more heavily toward the 4x10 combo.
