Description

The popular and sweet sounding Fender Bandmaster came with many different circuits during the Blackface and Silverface eras.

This amp would have been piggy-backed on a 2 x 12” cabinet and can blow you out of bed! I know this to be true because I used to keep one in my bedroom and on Sunday mornings would have a battle of the amps with my flatmate, who had a Marshall stack.

The amp is in fair condition. Four holes in the back panel show something had been mounted by a previous owner.

We have completely serviced the amp and fitted a three-core earthed mains lead and US plug.

Out of spec resistors and caps have been replaced, dry joints corrected, the 12AX7 pre-amp valve replaced and the bias adjusted.

Please note this is an all-original US amplifier which has a US 115V mains plug. You will need a step-down transformer to run it.

A great amp especially for those seeking those classic rock/blues tones. Famous players using a Bandmaster include Pete Townsend, Joe Walsh and Neil Young.

    The guitar arrived safely. I’ve only played with it for a bit, but my first impression is that it’s the most beautiful guitar I’ve ever played. Looks, tone, feel. Yeah, it sounds like golden sunshine, especially those high notes. In fact it sounds like a record! I think I found MY perfect guitar.
