Re: fender super showman

I would love to know more about these amps. All i know is that Jan Akkerman used to use them in Dutch rock band Focus.

Re: fender super showman

Jon, I have a Super Showman head and one XL1000 Powered Speaker cabinet loaded with eight 10" speakers. I also have original covers, footswitches and cables for the amp. I paid $300 for everything. The head is just a multi-channel SS preamp with all sorts of bad effects in it, including reverb, tremelo, a really pathetic fuzz, and a built-in Dimension IV canister intended to simulate a Leslie effect. Two 70 watt SS amplifiers are located at the top of the cabinet for a total of 140W. This is one LOUD rig. The built-in fuzz is useless, and without it what you've got is a totally clean and harsh-sounding amp, but for some reason it responds very, very well to a cheap Dano Daddy-O. I have used the amp for several shows at medium-sized clubs over the past ten years, and it hasn't given me any trouble, though they have a HORRIBLE reputation for unreliability. Everyone derides them for being total garbage, yet this amp is 35 years old and still kicking it out. At shows, other guitarists can't believe that a) it's still working, and b) it's Solid State. It is a rather imposing sight on stage. And yes, Jan Akkerman used a Super Showman with two XL2000 4x12 Powered Speaker cabs.

Steve, it's BJ! (yes, that BJ). Forshey just gave back MY Super Showman head, and I think you should know that for some types of music, the Fuzz is GREAT. Very tweaked-out Iassac Hayes style stuff.
Hey, is that the Sheet's old S-Showman?

My name is Tony Alamia. I live in Las Vegas. I have both models of Super Showman's. 1 top (3 channel pre amp) with 2 4X12 powered bottoms, and I have another Top with 2 8X10 bottoms. I have all of the covers, and 1 set of foot switches. I also have all of the information that Fender has ever put out on these amps. I was one of the first one's to use one of these when they were made in the mid 60's. You can page me, and I will call you back.
(714) 295-2148 Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks, Tony

Re: fender super showman

Tony,

A copy of the Super Showman SS1000 preamp manual and/or schematics if available would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Super Showman

I have four (4) Fender Special design 12" speakers from a Super Showman. They are 32 ohm and are in excellent working condition. Would like to sell these if anyone is interested. You can contact me thru my email. In the Midwestern United States.
