Jimi acquired new Fender Dual Showman amps in 1968. He would typically use three of these 100 watt amps with cabinets containing two 15-inch J.B.Lansing speakers. These amps were used in the studio, and on the 1968 Experience tour, together with Marshalls and Sunn.

Andy Hummel used a Fender Dual Showman to record at least some of the bass parts on *Radio City* by Big Star. >"For “O My Soul” and “She’s A Mover”, we put that old Dual Showman out in the middle of the studio, turned it up until it distorted mightily, and recorded it through a Neumann set several feet away. All as opposed to running the bass direct. It’s my old Precision Bass for sure."-Andy Hummel, 2007more
'I got a Gretsch Country Gent, which is great to play - a really thick, nasty beast! If you hit it a bit too hard then the bridge moves about and it goes badly out of tune, but I got some great feedback out of it. We had loads of amps on the go at once, with all the mics in different positions; everything was thunderingly loud. I've got a Fender Dual Showman that gives a bonkers sound - it's a top with two 15" speakers, like Chuck Berry used to use.'more
