AMPLYFIERS

GUITARS

ZAKS Equipment 

As most musisiens we had a modest amount of money at our disposal, and

the bank did not see our huge potensial. 

All our arguments were ridiculed, and even references to the income of the Beatles was rejected with a smile. So our parent had to pay, whitch they did 

 

Of course, it cost money to buy top brands like Fender, Selmer, Dynacord, Shure, Sonor etc. the equipment we bought was mostly the best of the best.

Where we were too "cheap", was at the facility for singing, it was too weak. The singing was one of zaks forces and an increase in spending on this, would have done much for our overall sound.

 

More or less randomly, and often because the big groups use particular brands and models, we ended up with a qualitatively very good instruments.

 

We howeverrbought, never VOX aplifiers or Rickenbacker guitars, which our biggest role models, the Bealles used, although we played most of the Beatles songs.  

I dont know why;  maybe Mr Albrigtsen (our supplier) didn't bring them to Vardø on his visit every year.

This Picture you see, from the left) Finn, (the rhytm guitarist) with his Burns VibraSlim  guitar. Next is Bjørnar (drummer).

Further down on this page you will find pictures, and videos of the instruments. We have not found examples of all constallations, but it shoud give you an idea of what leel our instruments had. If you want to hear  how it sounded when we playes them, by the LP "Take Special Care", and listen. It exists only in vinyl. You can also listen to a couple of examples on the bottom of the The Music page.
