Park Amplifiers Introduces the Park 75

A unique version of the classic British four-hole, two channel amplifier.

Bronx, NY (October 24, 2014) -- Park Amplifiers, recently resurrected last January by industry veteran Mitch Colby (formally Korg, Marshall and VOX) has brought back high quality vintage, British-style amplifiers to discerning guitarists worldwide. Already in the hands of discriminating guitar players, collectors and artists alike, Park amps are newly built amps that truly bring back the sound, feel and vibe of the best amps originally made in the 1960s and 1970s. Following on the success of the limited edition Top Mount 45, Colby has now introduced a limited edition version of the Park 75 head.

The Park 75 is a unique version of the classic British four-hole, two channel amplifier. What makes the Park 75 special is the use of powerful KT88 output tubes. At 50 watts, the Park 75 is capable of a hefty 90 watts at full power. This makes the amp have more headroom, thump and drive of the typical 50-watt British style amp.

The limited edition version of the Park 75 will feature a host of upgrades including high quality and hard to find parts such as New Old Stock (NOS) vintage Piher and Allen Bradley resistors, Lemco “chicklet” and mustard capacitors, all affixed to a brown Paxolin board with split top turrets. A Merrin “clone” output transformer finishes off this highly detailed and meticulously built amplifier. All Park amplifiers are hand wired in New York.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.
