At long last: A History of Mosrite Amplifiers

Postby Christill2 » Tue May 23, 2017 6:24 am

Hey everyone,
Reverb just published my history of Mosrite amps. It was done with the essential help of Ed Sanner (especially), as well Sarah Williamson, Deke, Bob Shade and Artie Niesen. Though I tried my dead level best to tell the story properly, any mistakes are my own.

Excellent article Chris and about time someone did this. Interestingly, Bill Bartlett of the Lemon Pipers is the same Bill Bartlett from Ram Jam. Green Tamborine to Black Betty!

Great article! Thanks for the link.

To my thinking, the one off amp looks more like a PA amp design, 4 separate channels with switchable reverb and a VU meter. For some reason most '60s PA heads had to have a VU meter of some sort. Look at the Vox Churchill, the Fender solid state PA, the Standel, etc.
