ID that amp challenge


Recommended Posts

Anyone identify this amp from these really poor pics? Looks like maybe a 3u rack type amp (seems two in a rack so assume one back up). Seems fender-ish type knobs but cant find anything fender wise on google that would match it.  Sound wise its old school valvey type but size wise im not sure it would be all valve 🤔🤔

Pearce and Yamaha used similar layouts/knobs.  Who are the band?

Its early Zutons. Amazing live tone with a 70’s jazz bass and flatwounds on old Jools Holland gigs

The microphone and cab suggest that it’s a guitar amp rather than bass amp at first glance

I thought that.  I did see a live vid where that make shift grill cloth was moving/bulging to the bass notes.  In earlier videos is a standard black looking metal grill

I spent half an hour looking through Zutons live photos/videos to try and find a better image and found nothing.

Then I googled fender rackmount bass amp and had it inside of 30 seconds!

A version of this Fender was made under the Sunn name but as the bassist was a fender endorser I would hazard a guess it’s the fender version he’s using.

Sunn version:

Clearest pic i managed eventually was this.  The fender thing makes sense as now the bass player is apparently with Noel Gallaghers solo project and is using a Super Bassman 300. Thanks again for the help 👍
