CEC Amplification Invites Guitarists to Join Development Group of Brigand Amp

CEC Amplification announces a unique opportunity for guitarists everywhere to have their voices heard by being included in the development of a brand new amplifier called the Brigand

Nashville, TN (February 15, 2011) -- CEC Amplification announces a unique opportunity for guitarists everywhere to have their voices heard by being included in the development of a brand new amplifier.



CEC’s brand new, all-tube multi-channel amplifier “Brigand” will be subject to the scrutiny of everyone who joins this unique development group, and every individual involved will have the opportunity to voice their opinions, provide their input, and offer suggestions along the way in the development process.



At the launch of this event, each member of the development group will learn all about the features and specs of the initial amp design. From there the group will be taken through the prototyping and ongoing development process, helping to expand upon CEC’s core amplifier concept every step of the way. Any and all feedback throughout the development will be welcomed, and much of it will be used to tweak the amplifier into a finished product.



There is no pre-requisite technical knowledge required to join, the development of this brand new amp is open to any and all enthusiasts who are interested.



CEC cordially invites you to join the Brigand amplifier development group by visiting https://www.cecamps.com/main/amplifiers/brigand/ and signing up. The deadline to join the project is February 18, 2011. After the deadline, the doors will close and the major development will begin.

“Did you grow up Unitarian?” Annie Clark asks me. We’re sitting in a control room at Electric Lady Studios in New York’s West Village, and I’ve just explained my personal belief system to her, to see if Clark, aka St. Vincent, might relate and return the favor. After all, does she not possess a kind of sainthood worth inquiring about?

​Luther Perkins' 1953 Esquire & a '59 Burst!
Johnny Cash Guitarist Luther Perkins' 1953 Esquire & John Carter Cash's 1959 Gibson Les Paul Burst!

This 1953 Fender Esquire belonged to Luther Perkins, who was a member of Cash’s first recording bands and played on all of the Man in Black’s foundational recordings for Sun Records—likely with this guitar. Perkins played this instrument during the period when Cash classics from “I Walk the Line” to “Folsom Prison Blues” were cut. John Carter Cash bought this 1959 Gibson Les Paul at Gruhn’s in Nashville. It has a neck that is atypically slim for its vintage and appears as part of the psychedelic guitar interplay on the Songwriter song “Drive On.”
