The Richard Fortus Collection

For those of you unfamiliar with this amp think early Sabbath and you’re there. Both Toni and Geezer used these amps in the early days of the band to devastating effect.  This is the original amp of heavy metal and it is crushingly incredible. 

There are a few different modern boutique builders doing replicas of this amp, but you can’t clone the tone of that original British iron.  These classic Birmingham amps were once considered the poor man’s Marshall, but have been proven to have a very unique voice of their own and have been used by players like Peter Stroud, Billy Corgan, Rusty Anderson and many other modern day tone hounds.  

The original Partridge transformers are still present. Solder joints look to be undisturbed.

This amp sings. At modest volumes there’s a warmth and a presence that really lets the instrument shine. Crank it up and things get fun. There’s a punch that pins you to the back wall with a crunch that still retains that clarity. Lots of clean headroom before you start getting into sonic destruction territory.  

Another classic from the late 60’s, this Treble & Bass is a must for those seeking that Sabbath tone

"For almost 40 years, I’ve been recording, playing, and touring all over the world with bands like Guns N’ Roses, The Psychedelic Furs, Thin Lizzy, The Dead Daisies, & more. Many of these pieces have made the trip with me, destined for the stage or the studio. Many haven’t, but each is an equal part of my musical history, and I’m glad to have the opportunity to pass this along to you." -Richard Fortus

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
