From Vintage Guitar magazine, February 2003 issue, p. 65:

"Knopfler mated his '60 Strat to an old Fender Vibrolux amp on his earliest Dire Straits recordings, then switched to more powerful Music Man amps by '79, favoring a 2x12 combo similar to a Fender Twin-Reverb..."

On the subject of Mark Knopfler, from May 1979 on he played two Music Man 212 HD 130's on stage at his performances. There is a very good write up on his website blog about the history of Music Man Guitar Amps. It is well worth reading for all of you Music Man owners out there, and for those who like to researh the evolution of tube type amplifiers.
