Description
Oh my. Dig this "6G7A" circuit 1961 Fender Bandmaster in excellent condition and in solid working order. This is the very first iteration of the "Piggyback" Bandmaster decked out in original rough blonde tolex and oxblood grill cloth. The photos tell the story in both internal and external condition.
 
This Brownface circuit drives a pair of 6L6 power tubes for 40 powerful watts of unmatched 60's Fender tone. Like the Tweed amps that preceded it, the Brown/Blond circuits are really dynamic and responsive, delivering Fender's hi-fi glassy clean tones at lower volumes and lighter string attack, but cascading into a rich tube overdrive and organic compression at higher volumes and stronger picking hand. It's the kind of natural tube overdrive that only comes from pushing a well-designed Fender circuit. You'll be surprised how "rock" this thing can get if you turn that volume knob up, especially with humbuckers. Secret weapon stuff, seriously. 

The EQ controls have a substantial and wide musical sweep, from thick and mellow to biting, twangy snap. The legendary Harmonic Vibrato circuit creates a lush sort of almost pitch-shifting effect that has an almost phasey thing going on, so much more than just a traditional tremolo. It sounds like nothing else, and something one must experience. It's like, psychedelic before most people knew about psychedelics, but the high can only be obtained from playing this amp... from our home to yours. Far out.  

This a fine example that has an updated power cord, and includes the original brown speaker cable and matching original footswitch.
