Mid-1968 Super Reverb export model modified by Hagstrm for the Swedish market.Note the removal of the voltage selector switch and hard-wiring. I just discovered that the silverface Bandmaster speaker cabinet (the big, tall one without tilt-back legs) is ported (see photo). I guess this is what the 1969 catalog refers to as “large, individual specially designed baffles.” And all along I thought the big n’ tall silverface cabs were just a macho thing to compete against the awesome looks of a Marshall half stack or full stack.

The Australian Fender Distributor then installed 240V - 110V stepdown transformers in the bottom of the cabinets.

These are marked with EIA code “606” which is the company number for Schumacher.

Well, this universal “truth” was debunked when we found a bunch of amps with transformers made by the Better Coil and Transformers company.

These are marked with EIA code “831” and are most prevalent during the 1966-68 time period.

Some examples include a '66 Princeton Reverb and ’66 Pro Reverb with Better Coil output transformer, a ‘66 Deluxe Reverb and ‘67 Twin Reverb with Better Coil reverb transformer, and a 1968 Vibro Champ with Better Coil trannies.

He recalled, “We just went to a big bin every morning and loaded our wheeled rack with a batch of whatever chassis we were working on that day.

The boss came around and said what we'd be building. Probably the same as the pots and transformers that we just dug out of the boxes.

I remember two 'suits' from upstairs standing behind me occasionally doing time studies.

They actually held clipboards and stopwatches to measure how long it took for me to attach various parts.

A 1957 tweed Vibrolux was reported with a tube chart printed with circuit “5E3” (tweed Deluxe) instead of the correct 5F11 (see photo).

Clearly Fender wasn’t afraid to use incorrect parts when they were in a bind. The 5G12 Concert is the earliest version from very late 1959 and early 1960 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.

These units look, and apparently sound, just like the Schumacher-made units so it’s easy to overlook that “831” code.
