Dating fender amplifier serial
Then there is a standby switch and an on/off switch.The reverb is via a tube driven, Accutronics long tank (another benefit of a bigger cab).
I'd put up some clips but do not have the gear to make that possible. Loved that thing...master vol in those days .....19 mumble mumble...ha ...4 of the 10's were in the bottom half of the cab with the the other 4 in the top half slanting up at about head height.....could open that baby up and just scream......You can also do over the top drive..admit that I don't take it that far...my thing. Reminds me of a cartoon someone printed in one of our local papers...shows a bunch of young guys with ink,metal and lotsa hair...guy holding a guitar plugged into a very large amp goes...."Chords!? No dude, I play distortion" I'd like to hear a 2X10 config.... I played a just reissued Gold top Les Paul Standard with P90's straight into the Marshall....a sound! But it'd be a beast to cart around at this advanced stage of the innings.Dig my Concert to bits...it around 10 years...a keeper. I had one for a few years and to be frank, I hated it. To me, it sounds nothing like the classic fender amps.The amp was very heavy to boot and took endless tweaking to get a passable sound. Wow I didn't see this one coming after all of the love for it. Sorry to hear about that Alain Jazz, but glad to hear you found a buyer.. Back when doing louder gigs I also used an extension cab, with a 15" JBL D-150 (I think that's right), that's a converted Fender 2x12 cab.Well, I am going on Sunday to see, play and hear her. Also, the only Blackface era amp I can compare it to is my 1964 Bandmaster. The drive channel was somewhat hard to tame at first but I eventually got a smoother overdrive by swapping the early gain stage tubes.I have his list of what was done in front of me....
...."Set bias and measured output"...60.5 watts RMS clip point 112 watts RMS max BTW the power tubes he installed for my request for max clean head room were a matched pair of Svetlana 6L6 GC's.
I've had a 60s deluxe and a super reverb and in my humble opinion, there is no comparison. I had one for a few years and to be frank, I hated it. To me, it sounds nothing like the classic fender amps.

I just came across an amp on line, a Fender Concert Series II Amplifier, 1 x 12 speaker. What caught my eye was the reference to it as 3/4 of a Twin Reverb, with more. After hearing two good examples of black face Fenders recently, one a Twin and the other, an exceptional Super Reverb, I felt the need for those types of black face sounds again.
Ideally, I wanted that sound in a smaller, lighter package that, had channel switching, master volume and some other modern features, like an effects loop. It has two foot switchable channels (with separate EQ.) and foot switchable reverb.
The clean channel has volume with bright boost, treble, and bass.
