Fender GB George Benson Twin Reverb Amplifier 2173400000
Inspired by one of the worldÍs foremost jazz guitarists, George Benson, the all-tube GB Twin Reverb amp produces rich, punchy tone with smooth attack and singing sustain. Dignified looks and refined sound combine with lighter weight in this dream stage amp. Benson demands punch, power and tonality from his equipment, and this dual-channel combo delivers all three with soul to spare.
The GB Twin Reverb is an updated version of the venerable classic amplifier that has been tweaked to satisfy BensonÍs discerning ears. The first tube on the Normal channel has been swapped for a 12AY7 tube, providing an alternate low-gain voice thatÍs ideal for smooth clean tone with complex midrange. Pristine definition is the name of the game with this amp„a pair of neodymium 12î 8-ohm Jensen¬ Tornado 12 speakers reproduces his dynamic attack, with shimmering highs and plenty of bite when overdriven. These speakersÍ reduced weight, plus the addition of a resonant solid pine cabinet, means that working guitarists can enjoy a total weight reduction of 13 pounds. A quartet of powerful 6L6 power tubes power this amp, providing 85 watts of power with plenty of headroom for clean jazz tones.
As refined as the music that inspired it, the GB Twin ReverbÍs elegant smoky gray vinyl covering, silver sparkle grille cloth and front panel GB badge combine to create a dignified amplifier that looks equally at home in the living room or under stage lights. Sharp style and warm, round tone mixed with a surplus of sonic power and easy portability„the GB Twin Reverb is a playerÍs delight. Includes a protective cover.
