Kurt Cobain’s Fender Combo Amp

Kurt was seen using an unknown Fender amp around the time when the band released Bleach, circa May 1989.

Based on this photo – Nirvana in Auburn, WA, May 26, 1989, it seems that the Marshall on top with the “Nirvana” was Jason Everman’s, while the Fender combo sitting underneath it was used by Kurt. The amp on the right, sitting on top of a red cabinet, was Krist’s bass amp.

However, it could also be that this Fender amp was used by Jason and that Kurt’s amp was sitting somewhere on the right of the stage (less likely).

At this point, the exact model of the amp is unknown. Based on the white line around the speaker grill, it could be something like a Fender 75. However, that amp seemed to only have a single speaker, while Kurt’s has dual.
