I bought mine Showman used in the late 70's. I run it with a 2X15 cab. it really moves some air. just had it rebuilt a few months ago and the tech remembers doing a rebuild on it in '79. I had completely forgot about having the work done, it had been so many years. love running my Jag through it dimed with no pedals. it really sings. couldn't believe that no one wanted to extole the virtues of the legendary Showman.

Here's my brownface Showman, in a custom 1x15 Lambo cabinet. I think I have a picture of my old blackface Showman/2x15 Dual Showman cabinet on my old computer.

I've got a '65, but no photos.
It'll sterilize small animals at 100 yards. Love it!

I just bought this head at GC for 600$. 1968 with BF wiring. Really like it, but I was surprised how quiet it was?? I'm running it through three 12" speakers. Sounds very nice. Love the trem34538

Don't have Showman but figure my PA100 100 watt is about as close as you can get to Dual Showman with out being one its made to run two cabs and the trannies and tube line up is the same as a 100 watt Dual Showman or a Twin Reverb.

My one of a kind 1966 Showman 115 amp. I got the chassis with no cabinet and built the 1x15 finger jointed pine cabinet and covered it with blonde tweed from the local salvage store. Added an EVM 15 and all I can say is wow......

Used with a reverb pedal and a 1x15 blackface cosmetics cabinet with an Eminence Legend. Big, strong, and deep!

69 blackfaced dual showman TFL5000 . or was and a train wreck express mod in the 2nd channel.
Mods done by Richie Hall of Hallamplification.com.
PPIMV, 3 prong plug NOS tubes and a 4 x 12 sound City cabinet with 4 x 12 JBL E120's and a Carvin 2 x 15 with Altec 418-8H.
I usually never run both cabinets together. I have buy is unneeded for my needs.
In 3 months im going to put 2 x 12 E120's in a hard truckers cabinet so I will have a 2 x 12 and it will be a bit easier to transport for jams..
That is an old 63 altec 417 diacone in front of the sound city cabinet. ive ot 3 of them
