When Leo Fender upgraded his entire amp line in 1955, 3 of his most important amps were all given the same circuit: The 3 x 10" Bandmaster, the 2 x 10" Super, and the 1 X 15" Pro-Amp.
This original restored "player" Pro-Amp can be yours for less than the price of a "boutique" reproduction, and unlike the reproduction, it will always have value.
Here's the rundown on the amp:
The cabinet, name plate, and probably the glides on the bottom are original to the amp. The grill cloth, handle, and screws are new, and the amp was, I'm told by the person who sold it to me, re-tweeded by Larry Rodgers.
The Triad 8087 power transformer, and the prized Triad 45217 output transformer are original, the choke is a Mercury Magnetics ToneClone. The original choke is included.
The speaker is a 1961 green frame Jensen P15N in perfect condition. same as the original equipment.
The chassis is fitted with all new old stock Astron signal capacitors. These are impossible to locate, but they're what this amp NEEDS to sound its best. The power supply is fitted with F&T's. About the NOS capacitors.
