It’s here! It’s here!

1965 #Fender #PrincetonReverb in fantastic original condition, no logo, with all transformers and reverb tank dated to mid/late ‘64, “FEIC” on the face plate, and “OB” (Feb 1965) date code on the tube chart. It sounds sublime! The turtle gets it.

One for the true #amp-ophiles in the crowd: a 1947 #Fender #DualProfessional, from @terry_foster’s collection.
An incredibly rare and incredibly important amp in the history of #FenderAmps, it was the first Fender “#tweed”, the first with two speakers (two 10s), and the first with top-mounted controls. The speakers are angled slightly outward to increase the sound spread. Did I mention it is incredibly rare?? To quote from Terry’s book “Fender: The Golden Age 1946 - 1970”, this amp “...featured many ‘Fender firsts’ and gave more than a hint of what was to come.” #fenderthegoldenage #terryfoster #guitar #guitars #amps #amplifiers #vintageguitars #vintageamps #tone #guitargear #guitarsdaily #guitarsofinstagram #geartalk #guitarsdaily #fendersofinstagram #guitarphotography #ampphotography

In a long stretch of girls, I had this little man come to the studio! It always comes in waves! #ampphotography #pittsburghnewbornphotographer #newbornphotography #babyinabox #lilluxe #babypictures #cwtchicoo

I think one of my FAVORITE parts of newborn sessions is the detail shots! 90% of my clients come back to their ordering appointment a week later and say how much they’ve changed already! ♥️preserve those moments mamas! #ampphotography #pittsburghnewbornphotographer #newbornphotographer #babypictures #detailshots #macro #babyfeatures #lilluxe

Q: How many #amps can a guy acquire within the period of a few short weeks?
A: Two.
First, this extremely versatile #Headstrong #LilKingReverb (courtesy of @tomgibson3783), and second...well you’ll just have to wait and see! A hint? OK, it’s going to be a lot like this one, circuit-wise, but roughly 50 years older! 😀😆🤣 Stay tuned...I should be getting it Sunday! So excited... (With 1965 #Gibson #SG Special. Amp stand by @atlasstands)

Maybe if we take a nap this cold weather will go away?! #ampphotography #pittsburghnewbornphotographer #newbornphotographer #newbornsession

I had to set up my work desk in my living room because our basement flooded (again) so until we clean it up, I’m stationed in front of my lovely window with fresh flowers.
I’ve been organizing everything. 10 years of clients are all being updated into my contacts, newsletter list, galleries, folders, etc.
I’m not sure if I’ve ever been this organized but it feels amazing.
If you’re my client, you may have noticed emails coming through. I want to catch up with you and connect again.
Back to basics and doing things old school again.

Trying out a new #attenuator- Carl’s Custom Guitars’ #SpeakerSoak - on loan from founding member of the #GuitarCollective, @tomgibson3783.
However I won’t be trying it with this 1970 #Marshall #Lead20...its output transformer impedance is 16 ohms, while this attenuator is made for 8 ohms. I think it won’t hurt an OT if the device’s impedance is lower than the output transformer impedance (although the reverse is a BIG problem!) but just in case I am wrong, I don’t want to hurt my precious OT! 😆 I’ll just find an 8 ohm amp around here somewhere... @carlscustomguitars

Friends, I have seen the *real* #ToneHenge™! Here’s another shot from my visit with @terry_foster, author of “#Fender The Golden Age: 1946 - 1970”, showing some of Terry’s very early Fender #amps.
As a (non-recovering) ampoholic, I can’t tell you how exciting these amps are to me. They illustrate how much #FenderAmps evolved stylistically over a relatively short period.
Top Shelf:
- 1947 #Model26 (red grill) in blonde finish. - 1946 Model 26 (blue grill) in dark finish. The Model 26 was the forerunner of the famous Fender #Deluxe, still being made to this day.
Second shelf:
- 1948 #Champion800 in green tweed.
- 1948 “#TVFront” #Princeton

Third shelf:
- 1949 #Champion600
- 1951 #Champion 600

Bottom shelf:
- 1954 “#WidePanel” #Champ
- 1955 “#NarrowPanel” Champ - this one is a particularly early example. You’ll notice it has the same “block” logo (zoom in!), small box, and 6” speaker of the Wide Panel Champ on the left. Terry says only the first few hundred made were configured like that, after which Fender switched to the more familiar larger box and 8” speaker.

After what I saw last night, I will no longer be calling myself an #amp collector. 😆

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to have a visit with @terry_foster, author of “#Fender The Golden Age: 1946 - 1970”, the definitive guide to the history of Fender during its heyday.
Here are some of Terry’s #amps: Champs made between 1948 and 1965. #Champion600, wide panel, narrow panel, and transitional black Tolex on the top shelf, and blackface Champs and VibroChamps on the second shelf. PS: Note the non-logo blackface #Champ/#VibroChamp set on the left, and the slightly later set with logos on the right. One of each flavour!

Thank you Terry for the tour and all the fascinating information you shared - it was a very memorable experience! And now I am going to reread your book to help me process and put names to all the insane gear you showed me!
