    I used a Wallace amp in the 70's and it was one of the better amps around at that time in the UK. Not very common tho'.

    I believe Herbie Flowers (session player from Blue Mink and Sky) used one but not 100% on that.

    Does anyone have any info about these great amps please?

    Thanks for that Psycho ...some interesting snippets that confirm a few things. That Wallace amp that's pictured in that thread is nothing like mine was. The 60's London guy knows what he's talking about.

    My amp was described as a "beer crate with knobs on" but it's true what they say about the quality and the records they appeared on - the Jamerson of bass amps!
    Cheers

    Herbie was defenitly used a Wallace amp in the 70's which many Abbey Road engineers loved the sound of it made a lovely parp sound when played an open E..:)
