USED SYNERGY BMAN 2 CHANNEL TUBE PREAMP MODULE WITH BOX
When someone mentions American-style guitar amplifiers, there is really only one name that comes to mind. And for good reason. Since Fender’s start in California during the late 1940s, they’ve been designing and crafting some of the finest-sounding and most-recorded electric guitar amps in history. Whether guitarists lean more toward the company’s ‘60s-style glassy cleans or gritty tweed-era tones, all of us revere the legacy that these amps continue to create. With their blackface, brownface, tweed, and modern designs, they are the only company that truly lays claim to the American sound.
There simply aren’t any electric guitar amplifiers more important to the evolution of the instrument then then 50-watt, 4 x 10” tweed Bassman combo, which hit its peak in 1959. Originally created to be a bass amp – and a fantastic-sounding one at that – guitarists quickly discovered its ability to be cranked into buttery, smooth, and aggressive overdrive. While it was shaking the foundation of American rock ‘n’ roll and blues, a British music-store owner, with a clientele that included Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, and Ritchie Blackmore, built his take on the bass/guitar amp, and the British rock tone was born. Today, just about every single electric guitar amplifier out there owes its inspiration to the original or the British versions of these amps. Whether you’re a bass man or a guitarist, there’s no denying the eternal influence and stellar tone of these tweed-era titans.
