If you have not been trained to work with high voltage then have an amp technician service your amp. Never touch the amplifier chassis with one hand while probing with the other hand because a lethal shock can run between your arms through your heart. Use just one hand when working on a powered amp. See more tube amplifier safety info here. The “” in the model name comes from the circuit change date of The silverface amps are surprisingly similar to the coveted Fender blackface line of amps so many blackface mods and tweaks apply to the silverface lineup. It’s pretty easy to “blackface” these amps for a full generational regression. I usually prefer switchable mods that allow me to go back to the amp’s original circuit and tone. The often unused Normal channel is also a great place to mod away with to make that channel interesting and usable.
Any questions about All-State auditions should be asked to your Band Director. Once contract barcodes are scanned by the district chair, directors will be able to see that they have been received on the all-state entry page. Also on that page will be an instruction sheet populated for each individual student including instructions for the HeartOut App the app we will be using to record auditions , information that must be given when students create their user account in the HeartOut App this includes their individual MPA Online Audition ID number and the order of the audition music that the student must perform.
Students will download the HeartOut App and create a user account. Once students are comfortable, they can begin their audition process. Students will be allowed 3 opportunities to record their audition.

Silverface Amp Modifications
The Bandmaster came with many different circuits during the blackface and silverface eras. The silverface Bandmaster amps got a 5U4GB tube rectifier and the vibrato channel got reverb. Due to this the silverface Bandmaster Reverb is less powerful, has less attack and breaks up earlier than the blackface Bandmaster. It reminds us more of a classic 80w Twin Reverb than a Bandmaster Reverb, and it shared its circuit design with the Pro Reverb and Super Reverb at that time.
The reverb amps will start to break up around on the volume knob while the non-reverb amps stay clean to approx This is caused by the lack of gain stage in the reverb recovery circuit which contributes to tube distortion and compression in the preamp section when the amp is pushed.

1966 Fender Bandmaster Blackface Piggyback Vintage Tube Amp Head & 2×12 AB763
However, the first drip-edge models appeared in late August of as the black-face cosmetics were being replaced by silver-faced amps. The most popular amps, like the Deluxe Reverb, were the first to receive the new look, which included not only the silver face-plate and aluminum drip-edge, but also a slightly different grill cloth with added subtle vertical blue stripes.
A few models during this early silverface period actually have the new silver face-plate and the old blackface style back-plate, and the earliest silver faceplates have the mysterious slim black vertical lines more on this later. It makes sense that the amps that were not selling as well were the last to receive the new look, as they were the models for which the old black-face parts lasted the longest, and inversely the most popular models were the first to get the update, as their black-face parts ran out the earliest.

I promise the tables will still be there after you finish reading. We also received a report of a tweed 5G12 Concert. The 5G12 Concert is the earliest version from very late and early so the existence of a tweed example, while extremely rare, is certainly plausible since Fender was making lots of tweed amps during the same time period.
Working at FMI — I was able to interview a fellow who wishes to remain anonymous who worked at Fender in in the amp department. Although his job was somewhat limited, his recollections provided some really fascinating insights to how the amps were built. For instance, he confirmed our assumption that the amp chassis were put into stock after being stamped with serial numbers and that the chassis were pulled from the stock bins randomly just as with Fender guitar neck plates.
The boss came around and said what we’d be building. The chassis weren’t used chronologically. Probably the same as the pots and transformers that we just dug out of the boxes. I think in the corners of the boxes were older pots remaining from earlier dates I think the better, older hands did 35 a day. Like I said, there were 5 or 6 of us at the benches every day. But it wasn’t always ‘cool guitar’ amps, sometimes I was making Fender Rhodes Satellite amps on bent aluminum, sometimes only Champs.
I remember two ‘suits’ from upstairs standing behind me occasionally doing time studies.

The Fender Bandmaster was a musical instrument amplifier made by Fender. It was introduced in and discontinued in Beginning in , Bandmaster amps were equipped with a vibrato effect. In the s, vintage Bandmaster amps remain in use by blues , Americana and rock and roll bands. Timeline gleaned from . The first Bandmaster was in all respects almost identical to the Fender Pro, a dual-6L6 watt amp with a 1×15 speaker, with one difference: separate treble and bass controls, where the Pro like all other Fender amps to that time only had a single “Tone” knob.
Like the other larger Fender amps, the Bandmaster used cathode-biased 6L6G output tubes, a 6SC7 paraphase inverter, and two more 6SC7s in the preamp with a 5U4 rectifier. The D-series circuits represented Fender’s shift from octal preamp tubes, e. Negative feedback and filter choke added, and the output section given fixed grid rather than cathode bias.
Phase inverter changed to cathodyne concertina type. The 6G n “brownface” circuit was used in several Fender amplifiers, including the Bandmaster. The circuit was used from  until July when the “AB” circuit was introduced.

THE EXPERIENCES OF A BANDMASTER
During eighteen years spent in playing music for the masses, twelve years in the service of the United States and six in that of the general public, many curious and interesting incidents have come under my observation. While conductor of the Marine Band, which plays at all the state functions given by the President at the Executive Mansion, I saw much of the social life of the White House and was brought into more or less direct contact with all the executives under whom I had the honor of successively serving—Presidents Hayes, Garfield, Arthur, Cleveland and Harrison.
They were all very appreciative of music, and in this respect were quite unlike General Grant, of whom it is said that he knew only two tunes, one of which was “Yankee Doodle” and the other wasn’t! I think I may say that more than one President, relieved from the onerous duties of a great reception, has found rest by sitting quietly in the corner of a convenient room and listening to the music.
Once, on the occasion of a state dinner, President Arthur came to the door of the main lobby of the White House, where the Marine Band was always stationed, and beckoning me to his side asked me to play the “Cachuca.
