    Your bass reminds me of a Burns bass... Probably Italian made English brand...

    The Standel in the lower photo looks like it's from the "Artist" series... Could be 4x10, 2x12, or 1x15... Maybe 100 watts.

    I've seen these somewhere back in time, but just can't pull them out of the cobwebs! So Just guessing... Maybe it will trip a memory for someone else...

    Yeah -- I think that's a Standel 2x15 "combo" bass map --I had one like it in 1969. A pretty good amp for the time -- better than the Kustom I had previously. The only bad thing I can think of is the the speaker baffles board was particle board and the speakers could pull the screws right through if you ran it at high power fro too long. That's what happened to mine and I wound up buying an Acoustic 360 in 1971. The pic attached is of a Standel 2x15 guitar amp, but the bass amp was substantially the same. Yours appears to be a newer design. The bass does indeed look like a Burns Bison, but in all the pix of the Bison I found it has three pickups.

    i know that bothers some folks in some parts of the country, but if you grew up in the south you had a different veiw of what that flag stood for than alot of the neo nazi redneck racists that have corrupted any pride or meaning to it!

    its a standel 'super artist'. i had one about 8 years ago and it had 2x15" speakers. mine was an 'super artist bass' but they also made the guitar version that had reverb and tremolo.

    I have a weird perspective having been raised by a Georgian (and registered Son of the Confederacy) in the Twin Cities, liberal capital of the world excepting San Fran. Rest assured, I know what the flag really stands for, but I also know how it is interpreted by those around me, and as a result avoid it as much as possible.
