THE AMPEG COMPANY INC

W. build powerful amplifiers in the interest of good reproduction in the hope they will be used to this end rather than as weapons. It Is to be hoped that the supporting spirit would prevail over the competitive.

A most common mistake is to worry about being heard by the audience. The prime concern should be a good bandstand sound which will in turn elevate the group spirit; the end result is sure to be great.

Whenever an individual's amplifier is turned up to an excessive level, a spontaneous effort is made by everyone else to compete. There’s an- other round of increases and the battle is on. Sometimes there is hope for relief in a blown speaker, for which they blame the manufacturer.

lf the beat is important (and it is), heavy loud music is out of order. It simply doesn't swing, never did, never will and cannot. But it gets loud and vulgar as soon as the battle of the amplifiers is under way.

We like to sell amplifiers, however not for the above purpose. We love music here at AMPEG and feel a responsibility in its behalf. When music loses its purpose, we lose ours.

MERCURY nate

OUR TWO-CHANNEL MERCURY, a long-time favorite of students, teachers and full-time performing artists, is one of the ‘‘cleanest’’ amplifiers ever designed.

In electronic terms this means an amazing freedom from distortion.

The MERCURY has four inputs, including a Stereo jack for accordions

using a multiple stereo pickup, such as the AMPEG AM-5. The accordion channel is specially designed to enrich and mellow the sound quality of this instrument.

Thus amplified, the accordion takes on the sweep and majesty

of an organ, especially when the controlled tremolo is switched in.

Another channel is also specifically designed for guitar, which enables the performer to achieve those crisp highs, so desirable for amplified guitar.

A footswitch is provided for instant remote on/off control of the tremolo.

The MERCURY is ideal for those who want an efficient dual-channel amplifier with

PLENTY OF AMPEG QUALITY IN A MIMIMUM OF SIZE AND WEIGHT.

REVERBEROCKET

UNQUESTIONABLY THE MOST POPULAR AMPLIFIER WE HAVE EVER PRODUCED,

OUR AMPEG REVERBEROCKET Satisfies the snowballing demand for a

modestly priced reverb amp, or ‘‘echo chamber" amplifier, as it’s commonly called. The reverberation effect, actually a delayed repeat of the original signal,

is produced electro-mechanically, and results in

a greatly enhanced, fuller-bodied sound. To both the listener and performer

the impression is of heightened tonal enrichment and opulence,

described by many as ‘‘concert hall presence."

The reverb feature is definitely not a gimmick. Top professionals,

once skeptical, now wholeheartedly embrace this new ‘‘sound of music."

Especially pleasing is the functional AMPEG tremolo to be used either alone

or in combination with echo. This model carries tremolo (speed and intensity) controls on the panel. A handy double footswitch is also provided to activate either reverb, tremolo, or both.

ECHO TWIN

YOU WILL BE THRILLED WITH THE VERSATILITY OF THE AMPEG ECHO TWIN,

a sound-rounded reverb amplifier, actually two complete amps in a single cabinet. Once available only in high-priced studio recording equipment,

a real echo chamber effect is now within easy reach of the ‘‘portable musician."' The commanding concert hall sound, contrasted with straight amplification, is overwhelming. “Extra-full,”’ “rich,”" “dimensional,”

“opulent,’’ are among the colorful adjectives people use

to describe a sound that can be appreciated only by a personal! audition.

An improved tremolo is incorporated in the ECHO TWIN, and can be

used in combination, if desired, with reverb. An especially compelling effect

is obtained by tuning the twin tremolos in and out of unison.

When used without echo you have a full, clean 30 watts of power

at your disposal. When used with echo you operate one of the 15 watt amplifiers for the main signal and one for delay signal.

Intended for guitars and accordions, of course,

but wait till you hear what it does for piano and voice!

SUPER ECHO TWIN

OUR SUPER ECHO TWIN is a ‘‘Super’’ amplifier in every sense of the word.

It is a powerful 30-watt reverb amplifier

(actually two complete 15-watt amps in tandem) whose sound magnification for guitar, accordion, piano or voice is unsurpassed.

In addition to echo and true vibrato, this model features

isolated channels enabling an accordion player to have echo and/or vibrato on the right hand and not on the left.

It is also equipped with a Stereo input jack on the panel

(plus four other instrument inputs) for the convenience of accordionists using a multiple Stereo pickup such as the AMPEG AM-5, a five-mike setup, Reverberation, once available only in high-priced studio recording equpiment, is now within easy reach of the ‘‘portable musician"’.

The echo chamber effect, actually a delay of the original signal,

is a gratifying auditory experience not only for the listener but also

for the performer. His sound becomes immediately rounder and fuller,

his performances more dynamic and inspired.

AMPEG, in its never-ending-research program, has created a

PORTAFLEX B-12-X B-12-N

_ B-15-N

OUR EXCLUSIVE AMPEG PORTAFLEX system has been hailed as the most important single contribution

to musical instrument amplification. It is the only amplifier

to incorporate the completely enclosed reflex-baffle principle in a one-piece unit.

The superiority of the reflex baffle has long been universally acknowledged:

its efficiency over open-back cabinets is a fact, especially in the lower frequency range.

But how to accomplish this in a single unit? To fully enclose both amplifier and speaker is out of the question,

first because it defeats the basic principle, and secondly because of the internal heat build-up.

To provide separate units would give the already-overburdened musician three pieces of equipment to carry, including his instrument. AMPEG solved everything by making its amplifier an integral part of the portable cabinet.

LIFT UP FLIP OVER PLUG IN

In playing position, the flip-top cover opens to reveal the handsome chassis attached.

This is merely inverted and re-clamped, restoring the acoustic seal. Your amplifier is now free and clear.

Other serious problems vanish: . carrying |

| FEWER SPEAKER BLOWOUTS OCCUR: position

you don't have to overdrive the speaker to get the sound you want. You actually conserve power,

making 25 watts more than ample; none of your sound is wasted through an open back, and you have boosted your acoustical output to an equivalent of a 50 watt amplifier in an open-back cabinet! 2 HEAT IS COMPLETELY DISSIPATED:

speakers last longer as they are not ‘‘baked"’.

Tubes last longer as their heat is dissipated freely; they're also so easy to check. 3 EXTRANEOUS NOISES DISAPPEAR:

the shock-mounted amplifier eliminates microphonics normally caused

by the intense physical vibrations imposed on the tubes. This also prolongs tube life. playing In short, here is the ideal amplifier for the discriminating musician— Rese

the performer who really cares about his equipment, and, above all, his souNb.

THIS IS THAT FAMOUS AMPEG SOUND—AMPEG AT ITS BEST!

THE AMPEG ECHO SATELLITE is the perfect answer for the performing artist who already owns a good amplifier without reverberation. Reverb is the most sought-after sound since the electrification of instruments themselves. Once thought to be a passing fancy for portable amplifiers

and available only in high-priced recording studio equipment,

the echo chamber effect has taken its place alongside tremolo and vibrato

as an essential feature of the creative musician's bag of tricks.

Used for accordion, guitar, voice or almost any amplifiable instrument,

our little Satellite will give any amplifier an echo chamber sound.

It is especially pleasing when used with a Wurlitzer electronic piano.

The dimension of the sound is literally magnified many times over by this handy electro-mechanical accessory. Attachment is simplicity itself: merely fasten the alligator clip leads to the terminals of the amplifier’s speaker,

plug into a convenient wall socket, and presto! ecuo!

P.S.: A handy footswitch is included for instant remote use of the echo.

Precision-made by British craftsmen to AMPEG’s lofty standards, these extraor- dinary instruments are the long-awaited answer to an oft-repeated question: “Why not an AMPEG guitar?”

At last, a guitar and bass worthy of our name and commensurate with the quality of our amplifiers.

Why are these new instruments so much better?

A VACHINE HEADS and all metal parts are honed to watch-making standards and “Tiffany tolerances.”

B GEARED TRUSS-ROD permits instantaneous neck control (key inserted in back of instrument adjusts neck for that “personal feel’; no need to remove neck or labor in cramped quarters to adjust).

Cc FOUR-POSITION SELECTOR (for guitar) produces an exciting range of distinct sounds: SPLIT SOUND (stereo pickup gives both bass and treble for the self- accompanied soloist); JAZZ (a warm, pure jazz sound); TREBLE (the highs where other guitar trebles leave off}; and WILD DOG (a snarling, radical, combination of tone partials, made possible by unique circuitry in the pickup; ideal for Western or Rhythm and Blues).

D FOUR-POSITION SELECTOR (for bass) provides CONTRA BASS (penetrating depth and even response on every tone, with the fattest E ever); BASS (solid and percussive; excellent for jazz); TREBLE (a somewhat more brilliant bass); and WILD DOG!

PATENTED, FULLY-ADJUSTABLE MICRO-BRIDGE, suspended on ball bearing rollers. Entire bridge moves during full-tone vibrato action; strings always return to pitch, unlike others which slide over fixed bridge.

Brilliant polyester finishes, never before used on guitars, are highly resistant to heat stains and scratches, far more durable than ordinary finishes.

Handsome, sturdy vinyl-covered cases, matching our amplifiers, are available. Red plush molded interiors contain accessory compartment. For the guitar: $45.00 list; for the bass: $55.00 list.

Final proof, of course, is their superb tone, especially when played through an AMPEG amplifier. SO TREAT YOURSELF TO STILL ANOTHER EXHILARATING EXPERIENCE IN THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF AMPEG SOUND!

BABY BASS

THE NEWLY-DESIGNED, ALL-ELECTRIC BABY BASS,

first musical instrument member of the ampeG family, is believed to be the only one of its kind

with a true fundamental.

DESIGNED BY THE PROFESSIONAL FOR THE PROFESSIONAL

Company president Everett Hull experimented intensively for almost a year—developing,

modifying and refining the pickup and its controls, and also the bridge and position of the

tail-piece on this new Baby Bass, to permit

full lateral action of these integral parts—

before he achieved the mellow sound he was seeking. The secret of amplifying any non-acoustic instrument lies in the design of its pickup;

the pickup is the very heart of this new instrument.

Most noteworthy is its size: resembling a scaled-down cello in modern design, the Baby Bass may be transported as a third ‘‘passenger”’ in

the front seat of an auto or carried on the lap

in a plane, making it ideal for itinerant musicians. It is especially appealing to young people considering the bass as their chosen instrument

as it can literally “‘grow up” with the child

by extending the two-foot adjustable peg. Preceding its adoption by AMPEG, J TT extensive field testing resulted in acclaim and

acceptance by prominent professional bassists.
