Fender Twin Amp Blonde 1962

Fender Twin Amp Blonde 1962

The Fender Twin Amp was the go-to amp for performing and touring guitarists from 1952 to 1963, growing from 15 to 80 watts through two 12 inch speakers and finally replaced in 1963 by the Twin Reverb. By late 1959, the ‘Piggyback’ style of amp, with separate head and speaker cabinet entered production, and the Twin Amp was the most powerful Combo style amp available from Fender. The early ‘Piggyback’ amps – the Bandmaster, Bassman, Showman and Tremolux were wrapped in a ‘Blonde’ tolex, and the only combo to get that was the Twin Amp.

❌SOLD❌ Watkins Dominator Mark 1 V Front Amplifier Reissue

❌SOLD❌ Watkins Dominator Mark 1 V Front Amplifier Reissue

One of only 100 built – the Watkins Dominator Mark 1 V Front Amplifier Reissue! The Watkins Dominator was bleeding edge for 1956, and its blistering 18 watts and two ten inch speakers struck fear in to the hearts of many promoters. The concept of the V-front is to widen the sonic field, rather than focus it straight ahead. Though it was rapidly pushed off stage by other much higher powered amplifiers, the Dominator was used extensively in studios during the 1960’s and was apparently the basis for the 18-watt Marshall combo design.
