ZT Amplifiers Announces Bass Stack

A 400-watt 1x12 bass combo with powered extension cabinet.

Berkeley, CA (April 12, 2011) -- ZT Amplifiers, known for their line of compact, portable Lunchbox amps, has announced their first foray into bass amplification with the ZT Bass Stack. The top section of the stack is a 400-watt bass combo amp with a 1x12 woofer, with two paper cone tweeters in a sealed box. The combo is designed to replace any 4x10 cabinet and 400-watt head in power and output with a weight of only 35 pounds. The powered extension speaker below features the same drivers and power as the combo amp. Together, the stack is around 2 1/2 feet tall.

ZT estimates that the stack will be available in late summer at an estimated price of $999 for the combo and $699 for the extension cab.

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.
