Leo was really more of an account in his approach than a real engineer or manager, he was a workaholic and frequently changed things in the pursuit of perpecting those larger amps specificly. It was so disorderly that Freddie Tavares, who worked more like a real engineer and in that sense contributed more to the amp designs than any other person than Leo and in turn became Leo’s right hand, Freddie eventually determined that the plant was in real trouble. It was disorderly and the working manner of things was completely unprofessional –this was the determination by the man they would bring in, a Mr. George Fullerton . And even under Fullerton the testers would go through a round of testing only to find mysterious difficulty latter in keeping his results consistent-leo was such a spuratic, workaholic that on top of the fact that they made units with a variety of types of resistors Leo would go in and change things on the fly, making things increasingly difficult. This demonstrates 2 things
1. Leo had a fulltime dedication
2. Leo was probably much of the cause of the confusing variations and hard to track amp-
Model lines win the companies fold eg. Professional to Dual Professional to Super and Super Reverb etc.
“with those larger amps there were hardly 2 production runs that were same as far as the chasis was concerned” –now this was about 1955
Fender would use what ever was available speaker wise for cheaper models like the Champ but Leo was displeased with all of the lowfi speakers for his higher tier so he specifically sought out Jensen Alnico speakers. Collectors have built a cult following around the Jensen’s Alnico V’s with there distinctive blue dustcap-most likely the genesis of peavey’s “blue….blablah blah speakers”
At this time the then Super and Twin were leading the power race, outputting about 15w each. At this all except for the tiniest amps used dual output tubes in a push-pull configuration for great efficientcy and power with low consumption
Speakers were the real problem at that time and with all that extra power compared to competitors, larger voice coils seemed like the natural option but according to don Randal they didn’t have nearly as good of an attack- in terms of response .
IN 54’ the narrow panel series emerged, also the best loved by collectors, the 15” speaker was found to be to fragile especially for bass and so the amp changed to 4x10, the 59’ model of that amp is probably one of the most desired vintage amps in the world. The final 5F6a model connects its negative feedback loop to the phase inverter.
Theyre business like Roland centered around the NAMM show, and as a result Don Randall like Leo constantly wanted new product and new brands. Randall described it like GM, you want a Pontiac and Cadillac and Buick,” you had to allways have something new or you were loosing ground”
Tremolo was a new effect in 55’ and it really was an effect previously found in home organs . Fenders first product to include this feature was the 55 tremolux. A single 12ax7 was used as its oscillator, applied to the sound output. The Vibrolux was the less powerfull model
In 58’ fender introduced the JazzMaster guitar and to go with it they created the Vibrosonic amp, which had a number of new design qualities and innovations. First this amp used a 15’’ JB Lansing speaker, it was covered in brown tolex material which was new for the company, and the controls were now on the face of the amp and the control panel was now a narrow slanted plane, all of which fender protected by patent. These new speakers were found to be harsher, they had a copper voice coil as opposed to the normal aluminum and a thinner paper cone, which supposedly had more bite. They werernt particularly popluar during their debut. The Vibrasonic was basically a Pro with a 15” JBL speaker and a tremolo circuit
