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.

    I first hesitated to buy it, because your description was so very lyrical that I did not trust it (it sounded too good). But indeed, it's all true: it's a fine & fabulous guitar. A joy to look at and to play.
