Sarah's amp front   Sarah's amp rear
The amp Sarah built, US. Girrrls can build amps too. Not graceful, but solid and slightly Goth.
Something to do with old railway sleepers. Note the baseplate-style amp construction.

Hi Roly,
Please find attached a blow up from a proof sheet taken in 1970 of band equipment. This was set up for a publicity photo and a heap of kids appeared from nowhere and wanted to “have a go”.

Click for blow-up, 182kb jpg

From L to R a Goldentone 60 piggy back head on top of 2 quad boxes the design apprearing in EA from memory in the 60's. (they had 4 x MSP speakers which didn't fare too well next to the 4 x Celestions 25M's in the Eminar Cab. The Eminar was a 150 watt model with 4 x 6CA7's.

On the ground is the EA 100w KT 88 PA amp with a Fender preamp (circuit from Jack Darr's Book) with a 200w transistorised Claybridge PA head resting on top.

Next a Simms Watt 100w bass amp then another Eminar 150w with two columns (for guitar) with the Claybridge PA columns either side. Amazingly the Claybridge could just keep up with all that valve power.

Also attached is an action shot taken in 68 showing a Strauss bass amp 80 or 100w, and a Trent with a Canora “Diamond” guitar with a Hofner humbucker fitted. I'm afraid the guitar abuser is me... wagging school again...
