Jimi Hendrix’s 1968 Fender Dual Showman 2×15 enclosure. Pictured with Jimi’s 1968 Martin D-45 and 1967 Gibson Flying V. Purchased from Bonhams August 1994 Auction. We had two of these Fender cabinets and sold one to the Experience Music Project (EMP). This was used from 1968 onwards in
the USA tours, with Showman heads, sometimes Fender Twins (unusual).
This one works fine. The one we sold to EMP in Seattle in the 90′s did not work.
This was the first serious amp he ever owned, and he used it from new in the early 1960′s until 1999. It is mentioned in his entertaining book, “Are You Experienced and it has been signed by Noel with a message on both the amplifier and speaker cabinet, in black felt pen.
