Fargen-like??


Recommended Posts

recently came across Jim Weider. I just recently bought a 52 RI tele and after hearing this guy play i think his tone is the sh*t...if you haven't heard of him then search for him on youtube.

 

anyway, does anyone know what amps Fargen brand amps are modeled after? it seems that most boutique amplifiers are just modified clones of something mere mortals like myself can own...i was wondering if anyone knew. thanks :thu:

The Fargen JW-40 that Jim uses is a fender blackface type sound but more headroom and tweeked. Jim helped Ben Fargen design it and it's using a distortion circuit that I designed also with Jim's help.

Here is Jim playing it with the KoT

That is the the shizzle. Mike I need one of your KOT and a Jim Wielder Fargen amp and a Tele.

Is he just using the boost side of KOT with the amp's distortion or the other way around the dirty side of the KOT with the amp's clean?

Do you do amp mods?
