    Cool! Did these have a Fender-y sound then? Or entirely their own thing?

    Music Man HD-130 Reverb | Vintage Guitar® magazine

    Here's a pretty good article about the Music Man HD 130. What was most unusual about the old Music Man amps is that they had solid state preamps and tube power amps.

    Meh. I always thought that they were kind of mediocre sounding. Would rather have a Twin or Dual Showman.

    A good friend of mine has an old one in their studio, it sounds like a slightly less good twin reverb. But it cost about half as much as one so swings and roundabouts really.
