The Fender Bandmaster Reverb was an amplifier made by Fender, essentially a Silverface Bandmaster piggyback head with built-in reverb and vibrato. It was introduced in 1968 and was discontinued in 1980. Master volume models with "pull boost" tone circuit, a Mid control knob for the Normal channel and a tailless amp decal were introduced in 1976. Power was increased from 40 to 70 watts/RMS; Line Out jack, hum balance pot and an ultra-linear output transformer were added in 1977.[1] The amp was reissued in 2009 as the Band-Master VM (Vintage Modified series), and features the characteristics of the original, retaining the tube driven preamp and output, but with a solid state rectifier and digital effects processor.
