Pete’s Gear: Lazy J amplifiers

Lazy J Model 20

30 March 2010, Royal Albert Hall

30 March 2010, at the Royal Albert Hall, with Lazy J “stack” next to one Fender Vibro-King combo/extension cab stack, and another Vibro-King facing toward the drumkit. Guitar is Fender Eric Clapton model Stratocaster.

Beginning with the 30 March 2010 Royal Albert Hall gig, Pete has used a Lazy J Model 20 amplifier and matching extension cab alongside the Fender Vibro-King amplifiers. (Vibro-Kings appear to also be on line, but shielded behind plexiglass.)

The amplifier is a copy of a tweed Fender Deluxe, and are made to order by Lazy J Projects in the UK. The amp is 18 watts, two channels, with one 12″ Celestion Blue Alnico speaker.

Beginning with the 10 Sept. 2016 gig at Oberhausen, Germany, Pete has used a Lazy J Model 40 3x10 amplifer stacked on a Fender Vibro-King extension cab, in between his standard Fender Vibro-King combo setups.

The J 40 is a copy of a 1950s tweed 3x10 Fender Bandmaster and was custom-built as a prototype for Pete by Jesse Hoff of Lazy J amplifiers, and is available (as the J-35) from Lazy J Projects. The amp features four inputs (bright, normal), treble, middle, bass and presence controls, a push/pull boost, a tweed/blackface switch and sensitivity control.
