Other Amps



kendricks heyday was really about 30 years ago!!!..the first company to really get into making repros of classic amps but with current/updated parts...out of texas..gerald weber (he got the kendrick from his wifes maiden or middle name!) himself was a bit of a promoter...pushed buttons...but they made some great gear...kudos

even parts...they put out a blakeframe speaker in the jensen fashion (before jensens italian comeback) that was absolutely killer

and published classic amp tech books...when there were none!!

Repros were so popular Fender got in on it. I have to chuckle just a bit-- when the blackfaces came out,a LOT of blondes and tweeds got rattle-canned black. Even saw a Bassman or two that got un-tweeded and black-Tolexed.....


Kendrick and THD were the pioneers of that kind of thing, and for a while, they were the only game in town if you wanted a brand new tweed bassman. Now, they mostly seem a little expensive for what they are.
