Another incredible one-off amp from Hunter Amplifiers! This sweet Fender Tweed Bassman-influenced circuit was handmade, with love, using purpose-picked components. Like all Hunter Amplifiers, there are no kits involved here. This was handbuilt the hard way, by a single person, right here in South Central, Kentucky!
This amp sounds killer! Having a single 12" speaker instead of the traditional Bassman layout of 4x10"s, gives this amp a fatter bottom end without as much honking punch. It's a bit sweeter sounding, a bit tamer, and a lot more portable than a Bassman. It handles like one, so it's familiar and easy to use. A+ from all of us here at Cumberland Guitars!
A note from the builder:
"The Keno Bassman (5F6-A) is a relatively strict interpretation of Fender's Tweed Bassman of the 1950s. Built as a 1x12 combo it uses 2 6L6GC power tubes to pump 39½ rockin' watts of sonic goodness into an Eminence Legend 5812 12" speaker. It is completely hand-wired using quality hand-selected components, including: Weber, Hammond, and MPS iron, JJ filter capacitors, Mallory coupling caps, Switchcraft jacks, and new JJ tubes (6L6GC, 12AX7, and GZ34). It has two speaker output jacks and a rotary switch to select 4, 8, or 16-ohm impedance. It's all in a handbuilt finger-jointed birch plywood cabinet covered in snazzy red Tolex with metal corners, rubber feet, and a comfortable stitched handle. It's a ton of power in a truly portable package."
