In this photo you can see George sitting in front of a Blonde Bassman amplifier (according to Andy Babiuk, a circa 1961 to 1963 6G6B model), holding the famous "Rocky" strat. This amplifier originally belonged to Paul but was used increasingly by George in the studio throughout the 60s. When the Beatles broke up George wound up with the amp and to the best of my knowledge it currently belongs to his son, Dahni Harrison. You can see it behind Dahni Harrison in the recent "Concert for George."more
"It’s interesting: The only amp I have from the old days was my dad’s Bassman. Those weren’t used so much on bass, but I actually do use it on bass. Sometimes you don’t want such a big bass sound. It has those 10-inch speakers, which are really good for a punchy bass sound. It was made for bass, right?"more
This amp is beyond compare when it comes to big sound. There is no reverb but you really don’t miss it, the cleans are so rich, so long as your playing is up to it, this amp will serve you well. Cranking this amp yields enough sound to rip your face clean of, and a bite worthy of a lion.
