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.

Ampeg SVT Classic Head and 1×15 Cabinet, 2008

Ampeg SVT Classic Head and 1x15 Cabinet, 2008

The Ampeg SVT Classic is based on the groundbreaking 300 Watt SVT tube amp line used by bands touring large festivals and areas from 1969. Prior to the SVT, very few amps could produce more than 100 watts. These amps are particularly prized by bass players. The public introduction of the SVT series, in 1969, was unexpected. The Rolling Stones were rehearsing for an upcoming tour, and all of their UK-model Fender amps were damaged due to power differences.

Gibson GA79RVT Stereo Amplifier, 1966

Gibson GA79RVT Stereo Amplifier, 1966

Here’s a Gibson GA79RVT Multi-Stereo combo amp, featuring two ten inch speakers in a wedge cabinet each powered by its own 15 watt amplifier. This model was introduced in 1960 as the GA-79 and upgraded with Reverb and Tremolo to the GA-79RVT in 1961, and the entire line was discontinued in 1967 when Gibson ceased amp production in Kalamazoo. On this example, the two 10-inch CTS speakers on this Gibson GA79RVT bear dates of the 8th week of 1966 – late February, and the Tolex covering is black faux-gator with a naturally faded silver/grey grille cloth.

❌SOLD❌ PRS 25th Anniversary HB Proto Amp and Cabinet Paisley, 2010

Here we have a ‘HB Proto’ version of The PRS 25th Anniversary Amplifier, a scalable 50 watt tube amp with 4×10 cabinet and dressed in matching paisley! This is a rare amp, built during 2010 and designed by Paul Reed Smith and Doug Sewell. Doug Sewell was by career an architect but his passion is to build amplifiers. The PRS 25th Anniversary Amplifier delivers a smooth, creamy tone and is based on the late 1960s ‘Plexi’ design. This example is apparently from the late prototype stage and is signed and numbered as 57 of 100 amps built.  It uses a pair of EL34 tubes and delivers sound through four Celestion G10 Greenback speakers.
