Mark Knopfler’s Selmer Thunderbird Twin 30

Mark used this amp in the early, with one of his early bands called the Cafe Racers. The Thunderbird is just a small combo amp that was cheap back in those days, and one that many people purchased as their first amp back in those days.

We just played pubs in London. I was using my Hofner and Gibson, and I bad a 30-watt Selmer Thunderbird amplifier. It had a little green light that stared out at you like an eye.
