Greetings to fellow TBers. Hope your gigs go well this weekend. Over the years Fender bought several larger amp manufacturers. They vanished into corporate thin air. Or did they? Did Genz Benz, SWR, and Sunn come back as updated designs under the Fender logo? This is a legitimate question since it was quite obvious when Fender bought Sunn how the Sunn came back wearing Fender dressings. So how much more has been gleaned from these fine products into new Fender branded amps? So my other question is-- can anyone give me a brief history of Fender's acquisitions and how they affected their current line of bass amps? And with all the success of the current Rumble and Pro series, how much of these defunct companies contributed to the design of the new line of equipment? Thanks for indulging my curiosity.
