The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~


Fender Super Amp ‘Brownface’, 1962

Fender Super Amp 'Brownface', 1962

Originally introduced as the Dual Professional in late 1946 and renamed in 1947, the Fender Super Amp started as a 20 watt, 2×10 combo, rising to a whopping 40 watts by 1962, and was discontinued in 1963 as Reverb-equipped models displaced several designs.  Here we’re looking at a Fender Super Brownface amp, with the ‘brownface’ trim putting it directly between the ‘Blonde’ and ‘Blackface’ eras. (In the vintage amplifier world, the terms ‘Brownface and’ ‘Blackface’ – referring to the amp’s white lettering on a brown or black control panel – have no relation to what those terms mean in current political or cultural contexts).

Fender Pro Amp TV Front 5B5 Circuit Tweed, 1952

The Fender Pro Amp, first named Professional from 1946 to 1948, was aimed at performing guitar players and vocalists and put out a whopping 15 watts. From 1946 to mid 1953, it used a tweed-covered ‘TV Front’ cabinet as seen here.   The Pro amp was discontinued in 1965 and became the Pro Reverb amp, following the pattern Fender was using with other non-reverb amps.  Here we’re looking at a Fender Pro Amp dating to 1952 with the 5B5 circuit.

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.
