1 retnev 2 months ago I ask here as I found the Gretsch users tend to be the most intelligent. Must be all the coffee we drink and the peculiar habit of getting besotted about a clueless penguin staring at the tailend of your guitar hoping for something fishy to pass by. It is 1:30 in the morning and I just poured myself a cup of Espresso......Question: In the late 70s I played in a highschool band and some guest player at a gig we did had an ELK amp. They are Japanese fender rip-offs. This Elk was like a Twin Reverb, and it had presence dome speakers which was like brass nails in my ears and I hated it. To make the nails even worse, he played a telecaster and to add insult to injury lifted the amp waste height, blowing all that treble, cracking glasses and tooth enamel past the 5th fret.There are some sounds I could not figure out of some famous players, and I hear these metal domed presence speakers in those recordings which I am sure it is what has been eluding me. So, the question is, did Fender ever issue presence domed fitted amps in the late 60s and early 70s , which the Elk copied.? Or was this an exclusive Elk thing ? I know Gilmour uses fanes with presence domes with his Hiwatts, but I am asking about Fender amps specifically.
