Fleetwood Mac’s “Ampeg” Cabinets

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by KeithGibbons, Jan 28, 2020.

  1. Saw an article about Fleetwood Mac and this photo caught my attention immediately. Seems like somebody slapped an Ampeg logo and new grill on an SWR Henry 8x8. Just thought it was interesting and wondering why they wouldn’t just use all Ampeg cabs instead of faking one. ‍

    "Whatever" is probably a good enough answer

    I agree. It looks like that's exactly what they did.
  4. Backline was provided. Backline didn't have the cab specified, so they said, "screw it." And it worked.

    Just my $0.02

    Most likely he's running direct anyway so the amp on stage is just a prop.

    Just wanted the matching look I suppose. Any pic of McVie's stage rig I've seen shows him using the Henry 8X8 on top of an Ampeg cab with SWR logo and normal grill on the Henry.

    Maybe Mac has a deal with Ampeg but doesn't want to give up the Henry??

    That's pretty interesting! Looks like some of his $$ comes from Ampeg...he's not messing that up!

    That'd be my guess too.
  10. Never knew how much I disliked FM until I got involved in a Fleetwood project. Yuck!
    Went along for a few months, but in the end I just couldn't buy into it.

    Has Ampeg ever made a cab with 8s?
