Hailed as one of the true holy-grail amps among guitarists and collectors, vintage examples of the ’57 Bandmaster are rare and highly sought after. The new ‘57 Bandmaster amp now joins the company’s Custom series, with  " alltube hand-wired circuitry and premium components.
It’s faithfully reproduced the classic 5E7 circuit, which pumps about 26 watts through three 10” alnico-magnet speakers, and Jensen’s P10R-F driver (a Fender exclusive) is voiced for warm, sensitive response. The Bandmaster amp’s harmonically rich clean tones are perfect for vintage rock, blues and country styles, and its naturally touch-sensitive overdrive tone sounds electrifying – especially when cranked up.

Chandler Limited’s GAV19T Guitar Amplifier is a cathode-biased, class A, all-tube, 19-watt guitar amp designed in the vein of classic English amplifiers and a big, vintage sound. Chandler Limited will also offer guitarists a selection of loudspeaker enclosures optimized for use with the  " GAV19T Guitar Amplifier.
The GAV19T incorporates its overdrive and tone circuitry directly within the power section. This design enables the GAV19T to be highly overdriven while still maintaining the amplifier’s classic tone. The drive portion of the GAV19T is a b oost / overdrive c ircuit t hat works only on the power section of the amplifier.
As a result, instead of adding preamp gain and distortion to achieve the overdrive effect, the GAV19T uses the power amp. The Drive has two controls – the amount of boost and the tone of the boost.Selections include Treble Boost, Full Range, Aggressive, Mids, or Bypass.
Tone can be selected as either Normal or Intense. The tone control section of the new GAV19T Guitar Amplifier has a Baxendall tone stack that uses an ECC803 tube. The GAV19T’s Bias control affects only the bias of the preamp tube – enabling the guitarist to gently tweak its overall tone independently of the power section. Retail price: $2,385.00.
