What We Think

The 40 watt Blackbird combo offers TONS of clean headroom, and truly BOLD tone. This is the blackface-style amp of choice, here at the shop!

The three dimensional cabinet design aids to a volume level that can reach nearly twice what you would expect from a 40 watt amp. It's plenty of power for a wide variety of stages and records beautifully. Definitely takes pedals very very well.

I can send you the high resolution sound clips from the demo video of this amp for a closer listen! I highly recommend taking full advantage of the media that only SoundPure can offer!

About Manufacturer

Fargen Amplification was founded in 1998 as a creative outlet for an inspired, young guitarist, Ben Fargen. As his collection of gig-worn, vintage guitar amplifiers began to need servicing, he found no local tech, with the touch or the talent he demanded to service them. Armed with the internet, an ROP course in electronics, and as many books on tube amps as he could find, Ben learned the trade; hands on, from the ground up. After a year of mastering the basics, he built a few prototypes, and began gigging with them all over California. Once word got out, custom work followed, and as demand increased, stock models evolved. Now in its 9th year, Fargen Amplification has progressed from a small one man operation, into a thriving boutique company that ships, custom-built guitar amplifiers to discerning players on three continents. And nowadays, in addition to personally tuning each amp that leaves the shop, Ben also provides world tour, amp support to many of the world's most celebrated guitarists. Fargen Amplifiers emulate classic vintage tones with craftsmanship, quality and options that surpass most vintage and re-issued amplifiers. Sound Pure carries a variety of amps from the Fargen brand and can always obtain the model you want or special order custom creations.
