Heritage Amps

Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting.  A few years back we had a growing thread about Heritage Amps including Serial Numbers.

I'm a huge Heritage am fan, especially the 45 watt 'tweed' toned Liberty model.  I never noticed before, but the catalogue indicated it was available as a 2x12 or 1x15 combo.  I've only seen them as a head w/2x12 cab like mine pictured below.

Amps pop up occasionally on Reverb or GC but they are relatively rare.  I wonder how many were actually made.   I get the feeling that the number is not that high.   Weren't they only in business for about 4 or 5 years?

Best sounding amp I've ever played.  Period. Never owned one, but went back to Buffalo Brothers in Carlsbad CA (long gone but GREAT guitar shop- 40 minutes from my house) more than once just to play though it (and other amazing stuff they had there).

@Genericmusic:  The Freedom and Burrell amps are truly under the radar jazz rigs. :icon_thumright:

That Kenny Burrell  sounded pretty sweet with my H-525 on Thursday night.

One time I got up close to a Heritage Briton to listen to a shop owner demonstrate its tone. That's the one which came with those Celestion blue alnico speakers. I'm at a loss to describe just how amazing the clean tone which came out of that amp was. Incredible! I own a number of amps with really great cleans but that Briton was over the top! Never heard anything (clean) that good since. It seems to me that now I know why those speakers are really expensive.
