    I just shipped my '69 Fender Bandmaster Reverb head to Benjamin Fargen to upgrade with his' Hot Mods, change 2 prong to 3 prong power cord and any other issues that may need updating. The Hot Mod is blackfacing the reverb channel and converting the normal channel to ODS (Dumble style) Looking forward to hearing the results.

    Looks like you’re fixed pretty well, and will be even way better when you get the Bandmaster RV home. :)

    I bet you will be pleased. I put one of is full kits in a DRRI. It sounded great. Far more mids, less negative feedback. Hope you love it.

    Ben repaired/fixed the lead dress on my first-time build Mojotone Studio One kit. I think that I took on a little too much of a project for a first time. I sent it to Ben and he did a magnificent job and it sounds exactly like a 1 watt Marshall amp.

    My amp arrived today. I put it back together and plugged in. Sounds fantastic.
