1966 Fender Bandmaster head
Fender Bandmaster – Blackfaced & Ready To Rock!
A great sounding Fender amp head especially for those seeking classic rock/blues tones. Famous players using a Fender Bandmaster include Pete Townsend, Joe Walsh and Neil Young to name but a few.
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.
