Wright Amps - 5E7 Bandmaster 3x10" Combo


This used Wright Guitar 5E7 Bandmaster 3x10" Combo in Mint condition has become a big sleeper hit on the vintage market. Many fine examples from the vintage era used differing output transformers. Aaron Wright uses a custom 2.6 ohm output transformer from Mercury Magnetics to properly match the impedance of the three Weber Alnico speakers. With this proper impedance match, Aaron is able to capture the great tone of the old 3x10" tweed amps, but with improved dynamics, feel and volume output.

This has to be one of the best circuits to use for ES-335s, too. Pat Simmons and Tom Johnston of the Doobie Brothers have long favored this circuit for its warm but cutting distortion tone when cranked. "China Grove" all the way! But, it is also one of the greatest harp amps of all time. There is something that happens when three 10" speakers in a triangle pattern join together, very powerful, rich in midrange punch and very controllable when either coaxing feedback from a semi hollow guitar, or using a Green Bullet mic for harp. As with all tweed era circuits, the controls are highly interactive, so there are plenty of great "hidden" tones to coax out of this amp. This Wright Guitar 5E7 Bandmaster 3x10" Combo comes with a custom padded nylon cover from J&L.
