I was playing around on youtube tonight and wondered if there was any CCR footage that might show Kustoms....and of course there is. There is even a contemporary Fogarty talking about his amp from Chanute on a "Suzie Q" clip. BC

That video is from about 1985. I took 2 of my boys to see JF on his Swamp Fever?? tour here in Milwaukee. (Actually I'm in South Africa right now) He presented the amp for only 2 songs, "Suzy-Q" and "I put a spell on you". He really can make that amp sing. On his later tours, he didn't use the Kustom at all. I also noticed from a live video of "Proud Mary", his amp has the distinctive JBL 4" aluminum cone domes. The amps are prominant on his Cosmo's Factory LP. The Swamp Fever video shows the amp without the domes. Hmmmm? Also for another thread, His amp is a later K200-A4. The original A series amps had 2 white circuit breakers on the face of the amp. Somewhere along the way the circuit breakers were replaced with pigtail fuses inside the amp. Exactly when, I don't know. He used the one amp as a backup in case the primary amp died. It is never plugged in.

I missed tou guys!!!

The reference to the 'Chanute Kansas amplifier' that BC alludes to may be seen on the 'Premonition' DVD. I think it and the CD under the same name are some of Fogerty's finest work.

If ya like Fogerty, you'll love the DVD.
