JK,

Blue Cheer did use Marshalls (3 or 4 per side if I remember correctly). I remember talking to Don Weir when that monster amplifier first appeared in the store, he mentioned Blue Cheer in probably hoping they would buy and use them. I don't know if they ever did buy any, but I did spend time talking to Dickie Peterson that day who talked at length about the "Fuzz Face", Blue Cheer's preferred fuzztone of the time...they bought a LOT of those over time.

Weir amps were short-lived I guess. Considering how huge and heavy the speaker cabinets were, I certainly would have never wanted one...
