Ken Fisher gave us the Trainwreck(TM) amplifier legacy and his Express amp is what the “Expression” Kit is inspired by. But what does a Trainwreck Express sound like?
On the occasion of what would have been Ken Fisher’s 63rd birthday (May 12, 2008), Geetarpicker (Glen Kuykendall) has released a new YouTube video that features his original Trainwreck and a newly acquired Strat… (maybe I’ve scooped Stratoblogster with this one!)
This is an awesome example of what can be done with the Express. A couple of things to note: tone-wise, everything is accomplished with just the volume knob on the guitar, and Glen is playing with heavy looking earplugs installed! These amps are loud!
Happy Birthday, Ken!
Glen has put together an album of tracks, including this one, all recorded using his Trainwreck. It is available at a very reasonable price on eBay:
