Legend A60 Amplifier
The small Legend amps are not do-it-all tools, but
they have their own unique identifiable tone; you'll
recognize it when you hear it. Last built in the U.S.A. in
the early 1980's, Legend gave the other amp manufacturers a
serious challenge for several years. The A60 has two
switchable channels, reverb, dual stage overdrive and
controls for low, mid and high eq and presence. There's also
a parallel effects loop with level controls. The clean
channel sparkles or can be overdriven to the point of mild
blues distortion, the dirty channel provides max overdrive.
Two tubes in the preamp and a solid state power section
contribute to its one of a kind sound.
When an effects processor is used (currently a DOD
Tec8G), the 12ax7 preamp tubes are replaced with 12at7's. The
A60 1x12" combo pictured here was bought from a friend in
1997. The original speaker had been replaced with a very
bluesy Kendrick speaker, but it died recently and was
replaced with a Peavey Black Widow. Compared to the Kendrick,
the 8 ohm Peavey speaker boosted the volume and increased the
effective range of the tone controls. Both improvments were a
pleasant surprise. We also have a 4 ohm basket for the Peavey
speaker that is certain to be tried in the near future. Wow,
even MORE volume. The dirty channel was also tweaked by
Kendrick and the end result is an amp that works well for
blues, rock and surf. Wonderful little amps in beautiful oak
cabinets. My main box for small to medium club gigs.
