45 RPM Record Sleeves

These 45 RPM record sleeves of Cheap Trick songs all include images of the Hamer Quad Bass, both in its original natural finish and its later black finish.


Baseball Cards

These four baseball cards are all live shots of Jeff Ament from Pearl Jam concerts. Two cards are from 2013 with the other two from 2016. Jeff is shown playing Hamer 12-string basses on each of the cards. In three of the photos he is playing a Hamer B12A “Ament” variant and the fourth shows a custom silver sparkle Hamer Thunderbird 12.



Cheap Trick has created a variety of postcards over the years. These two postcards both include Tom Petersson’s first Chandler Royale 12-string bass that he received in late 1995 / early 1996. The snowman card is the standard 4” by 6” size, while the other card is oversize at 5” by 7”.


Advertising Cards

Typically used to promote a newly released album, Cheap Trick has used advertising cards extensively over the years. Both of these cards picture the green Chandler Royale 12-string bass.
