Factoids and Trivia

The Gibson BR-9 was a student model lap steel amp.  It had two 6V6GT power tubes and a 6SJ7 pentode preamp that was good for a whopping 10 watts.  Controls were very simple and consisted of a power switch and a volume control.  It came equipped with a 10" Jensen F-series field coil speaker which sounded fine for lap steel, but wasn't gnarly enough for guitar unless the volume was dimed.
