The first five show the condition it was in when it was given to me. Somehow the grill cloth escaped any damage; it's was is perfect. Which seemed like the only part that was Here is the cabinet gutted and ready to be resurrected!
Clean up and re-capping in progress. All solder joints were refreshed and wires re-dressed and cleaned up. The only modification I did was add a detachable power cord and an external fuse holder replacing the internal one.
The speaker openings were trimmed in red for a custom look. Here it is reassembled. The face plate gunk cleaned up nicely and new knobs replaced the crumbling originals. I added a maroon chicken head knob on the Master Volume control to give it a bit of vintage flavor.

The clean channel is articulate and clear. It's a keeper. I didn't intend on doing a complete OEM restore, but I also did not want to totally ruin the classic look of the amp.

The amplifiers featured solid-state circuitry instead of vacuum tube -based designs so common in the s.
Ross, Inc. The company produced several models of guitar amplifiers, bass amplifiers, organ amplifiers, Guitars, Basses, and keyboards and P.
There was also a line of guitars with DeArmond pickups in a variety of colors, including the infamous Pink to Green sunburst that fans have affectionately named "Watermelon Burst. Eventually the company branched out to produce organs, drums, microphones, and guitars. Charles "Bud" Ross produced the first Kustom amp which comprised two fifteen inch speakers mounted side-by-side in a horizontal white sparkle cabinet with and a non-Frankenstein head.
The first amp was built for a member of the Nebraska Hall of Fame and is now a featured display in the collection of Rainbow Recording Studios in Omaha, Nebraska. Later Bud Ross established a fairly lucrative business which manufactured police handheld radars. During the following years the factory in Kansas and the associated trademarks would change ownership numerous times.
The most notable merger happened with Gretsch, which at the time was owned by Baldwin. Aside from the Kustom brand, Kustom Electronics also began to manufacture an amplifier line called Kasino. The brand was established in These were internally the same as Kustom amplifiers but were covered with traditional Tolex material as seen on Fender style amplifiers.
Kasino amps were used mainly by country music performers who felt the regular Kustom Tuck-And-Roll Naugahyde models were too flashy. Another reason for establishing a parallel brand was simply to gain a greater share of the amplifier market. One distributor could sell the Kustom brand and one could sell Kasino without competing with each other. Waylon Jennings was an early supporter of the Kasino line.
Kasino amps were discontinued in when Kustom Electronics once again changed ownership.Click Here to Send a Donation. Email SteelGuitarForum gmail. I have a Kustom Amp???????? Posted 31 Mar pm. Posted 1 Apr am. Posted 1 Apr pm. Posted 5 Apr am. Posted 7 Apr pm.

Bill Moore From: Manchester, Michigan. It was watts, with a 15' speaker. I'm thinking it was intended to be a keyboard amp. I bought it cheap from a kid that played an amplified accordion.
Before that, I only had a couple of smaller guitar amps, so this was the first amp I got that I thought would work for pedal steel.
THERE'S AN AMP FOR EVERYONE!
If I had it now, I probably could get a decent sound from it, but back then, it always seemed very "honky" and I was never happy with it. I sold when I found a Session I'm not sure how it compares to the Lead II. But it did seem to be well built and sturdy.
Hey K. I have an old Kustom piggy back amp which is covered in blue sparkle tuck and roll upholstery. It's a killer amp and has that old rock and roll vibe to it. I have two cabinets with four 12" speakers in each of 'em.
I do an oldies rock and roll show from time to time and use either this set up or my Marshall stack. My Kustom has a built in tremolo and a very nice sounding reverb. If you turn 'em both on and plug a Les Paul into it you can nail that old John Fogerty tone easily with this rig If it didn't take up so much room in the van I'd use it all the time JH in Va.

This is an absolutely amazing Kustom L1 Combo amp. It has a truly amazing vintage tone, and one of the most unique reverbs that we have ever heard and we mean that in a good way!! It is a solid state amp, however it gives out a really convincing vintage tube sound.
These are extremely hard to find, and truly something special. There is a bit of gunk on the power switch, however it doesn't really effect the functionality at all.
There is also a crack in the leather on the handle. Once again, it does not effect the integrity of the handle itself. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to throw them our way! Product Specs.

Against the Arizona Cardinals (Football Outsiders ranks them fourth against the run) last week, the former Georgia Bulldog had 158 yards from scrimmage on 25 touches.
Gurley also gained 154 yards from scrimmage (and a touchdown) versus the Cards on October 22. Gurley assumes a lot of the Rams' volume. He's touched the ball 271 times in just 12 games this year and is on pace to surpass 350 for the season. Therefore, he should receive plenty of opportunities to score. In fairness, that number has come down from 51, so it's clear that sharp bets have gone heavy on the under since the line opened.
However, 48 is still the second-highest number on the board for the remainder of the week, so don't be surprised if this game ends up being one of the higher-scoring Week 14 matchups. That means Gurley can certainly find his way into the end zone at least once. Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins and San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise GoodwinWe're throwing the last two players in the same category because they play in the same game, which is predicted to be a shootout.
The case for Houston Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins having a monster day is an easy one. Over his past six games, Hopkins has not accrued fewer than 76 receiving yards or nine targets. He is clearly quarterback Tom Savage's favorite target and should see no fewer than double-digit passes thrown his way.
Hopkins will face a San Francisco 49ers team that ranks just 26th out of 32 NFL teams against No. They also allow 7.

Fuller's calling card is catching the deep ball (he averages 19. In fairness, few players can match Watson's ability to hit his receivers deep, but Savage should still favor Hopkins in this game. On the opposite sideline, look for San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin to have a breakout performance.
Over the past four weeks, it seems as though the former Texas Longhorn has been knocking on the door of a monster day after a slow start to the season. During that time span, Goodwin has caught 15 passes for 328 yards and one 83-yard touchdown in which he beat stout New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
Furthermore, Goodwin hauled in all eight of his targets for 99 yards in Jimmy Garoppolo's first start with the team. That performance came against the Chicago Bears in Soldier Field. Although the Bears are 3-9, the Vic-Fangio-led defense has been impressive this season: Football Outsiders ranks them in the top half of the league against the run and pass.
The fact that Goodwin was able to go a perfect eight for eight on his targets against an above-average defense on the road with a new starting quarterback is a good sign for future success.Nordic Visitor delivered a near perfect experience at what we consider to be a most reasonable cost. Extensive travel plans including a larger, weather proof map of Scotland, were waiting for us in our hotel along with a personal note from Maria along with her phone number.
Communications was excellent throughout our experience. Maria was extremely patient and provided us some very specific options. We own sheep dogs and wanted to see a sheep dog demonstration. Within 20 minutes, we had the information and directions to a working sheep farm. I was very pleased with the entire experience put together by Nordic Visitor.
All communications were prompt, the information in the packages was very detailed, the tour, accommodations, transfers, and recommended sites and restaurants were all excellent. We had no concerns during the entire trip and all the transfer shuttles arrived on time. We couldn't have asked more a better experience. The information provided was most helpful and our vacation was the best one we've ever had.
I know your company only works in the nordic countries, but we hope you know of similar companies in other areas of Europe you could recommend to us.
We loved the flexibility allowed us while you arranged the lodging and transportation. It was truly our best vacation EVER.
I have already recommended Nordic Visitor to several friends.
Everything worked perfectly, from trains to boats to accommodations. It was a perfect way to travel and see the country, and Bjarni was prompt and helpful throughout all communications. This was a wonderful experience and we have only only good things to say about our tour. I had a million questions throughout the planning stage, and he patiently and graciously answered them all, sometimes more than once. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. We were sad to leave such a wonderful place (and we really love our homes.
Booking our honeymoon through Nordic Visitor was an excellent experience which led to the best trip my husband and I have ever taken. The staff were professional, the scenery was beautiful, and the tours were amazing. We were continually surprised with how smoothly the trip went and were always prepared with enough information to feel confident about our ability to travel within Iceland. I cannot speak highly enough about our experience with Nordic Visitor. Not only will my husband and I be returning customers, but I have already recommended Nordic Visitor to several people and we have only been home for about a week.
We cannot wait to travel with them again. Overall, our experience with Nordic Visitor was fantastic. Our travel consultant was very helpful and always there to answer any questions we might have.
Everything was planned perfectly, I would not change a thing. My wife and I had the time of our lives on our trip through Nordic Visitor. Everyone we talk to about our trip, we find a way to work in your company to the conversation and recommend you to them. Klara was AMAZING leading up to our trip, and we really wish we had the chance to come by the office to chat and personally thank you for such a great trip.
We will be back again, and will most definitely be traveling with Nordic Visitor.
