Sunn Logo changes through the years
« on: September 26, 2019, 09:23:47 pm »

Hi guys.  Good to be somewhat back after a year and 3 month absence due to surgery gone wrong.  Lots of things I have issues with physically, but nothing to deter my love of gear and music.

I've checked thru my Sunn informational file, but did not find an answer to a current guestion that I have.

I looking for some sort of way to identify the approximate change in style of the speaker cab logo thru the years.  That's the only that I don't a good handle at the moment.  Any helpers that can get me up tp speed on this :-) will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

I'm surprised that you haven't received a reply on this as yet.  I don't have much knowledge on the subject, so can't be of much help.

Here's a picture with the 4 earliest logos.  I cannot place dates on them with confidence.  I know there are articles in the forum that should pop up with a search for SUNN LOGO.  Maybe between them and the pictures some order can be determined.  People would change them sometimes too so having a cab or amp with a particular log is probably not a guarantee of correctness.

I don't know of any definitive documentation on the topic.

I found this from a thread where Loudthud responded..."The Sunn badges or logo plates have gone through several changes over the years. Do a search and you can find threads where I have pictures of different examples. Hard to see in your pictures but it looks like there is a small R in a circle between the letters Sunn and the (o))) symbol. The (R) means Registered trademark. Before 1969 there was no (R)."

It is a start...
