Anyone who has listened to rock radio between 1982 and now has heard the sweet telecaster jangle of Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders. Aside from being a brilliant songwriter, she is also a rock and roll hall of fame member and the first woman guitar player to ever grace the cover of Guitar World.
I had the good fortune of being hired by Carvin and Steve Vai in 2007 to re-design the new signature Steve Vai Legacy 2 tube amplifier which was release at the 2009 winter NAMM show. Working with Steve Vai for the better part of two years was a pleasure and an honor.
I have always used certain recorded tones as a benchmark for my Fargen Blackbird amplifier. One of the ultimate Blackface tones ever recorded to my ear, is the electric guitar work on the song “I Wonder” by Chris Isaak.
Sugarland and Mastodon were both spotted using a Fargen Dual British Classic during recording sessions @ Southern Tracks studios in Nashville.
Anyone who has been in the Sacramento music scene for a while knows my man Steve Amaral. Steve’s new band, The Nickel Slots, recently released their kickin’ new full length self titled album.
These two custom Blackbird amps recently shipped to Michael Landau for a tour and recording in Italy.
Josh Smith performs with his Fargen Blackbird amp on the Ellen TV show.
I am honored that Ede Wright chose to use his custom Fargen 4 x 6L6 Blackbird head on his entire album and continues to be a the longest running Fargen artist to date!

I was digging through my CD collection today (gasp!! not mp3’s or iPod??) I grabbed Bruce Springsteen’s “Born To Run” as it’s been a while since I had a listen to it.
