Kurt Cobain’s Fender Twin Reverb Silverface (Bleach tour)

This amp was seen behind Kurt on stage starting with Nirvana’s European tour in late October 1989, in support of Bleach. However, the amp belonged either to TAD or Mudhoney with whom Nirvana toured, and there was never a cable going into the amp while Kurt was performing – meaning, he likely never used it himself.

Kurt has never played a Twin Reverb live. All photos of him on stage with a Twin, show either the backline of TAD or Mudhoney.
