FACTOIDS & TRIVIA

Magnatone.  The amp of choice for Buddy Holly and Robert Cray.  These amps are sought for their clean tone, bluesy overdrive and true vibrato.  The reverb models, such as this Model 450, have very lush sounding reverberation very similar to that of early and mid-1960s Ampeg amps.
