1 Windsordave 2 months ago Back a few years when I decided I wanted an amp with a 15" speaker, before taking advice here and got a [fabulous!] Gretsch Executive, locally, I ran across a Fender 75 for IIRC, $300-350. I played my SC through it and no matter how I configured the guitar and the amp - as many setting combo's as possible, I found it to be underwhelming/unimpressive. The amp had no issues as it had been looked over recently and never been abused but the tone and sound with any settings just sounded very sterile; no real warmth. Loud as hell at 75 watts and had the switch for 15 amps for home use, but I'm wondering if any of you guys who know amps inside out can shed light on why this amp behaved this way? I never recall it being a popular amp. It's output & the 15" size speaker are essentially the same - other controls and wiring aside - as today's Twin Custom 15. The speaker in that 75 had no labels at all but did look, as I remember now, looking like a JBL D series. This amp didn't sound even close to playing my SC through many amps (without a 15" speaker) in my local store at the time.Don't want one but curious why this amp wasn't popular and why it sounded as I've described. Thanks in advance.
