Fender showman

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Fender Showman was a guitar amplifier made by Fender and was produced from 1960 to 1993. The amplifier later developed into a product line with the so-called "Blackface" and "Silverface" models Showman , Dual Showman , Showman Reverb and Dual Showman Reverb . The look is reminiscent of the Bassman and Bandmaster products. The amp is often associated with surf guitarist Dick Dale and pedal steel guitarists .
