Kurt used a Fender Twin Reverb to record Bleach album. That particular amp, however, wasn’t owned by him, but by Jack Endino, who produced the record.

When they recorded Bleach, Kurt’s Randall was in the shop so they borrowed my amp, which was a Sixties Fender Twin. I’m a tube nut, so everything was tweaked and up to spec on that amp, but it didn’t have speakers because I had fried them. Kurt brought in a little closed-back 2×12 cabinet with two Celestion [speakers], most likely 70-watt models.

Following the release of the album, Kurt went on to use his (repaired) Randall for a few months. By later October 1989, and Nirvana’s European tour, Kurt acquired a Fender Twin Reverb of his own.
