Part of a stunning collection of tweed amps the 57 Custom Pro-Amp is an amp for the true tone junkie. An updated version of the venerable tweed Pro that powered the inception and growth of rock ‘n’ roll, the hand-wired ’57 Custom Pro- Amp replicates this classic tone with style. This sonically flexible amplifier is built around a vintage all-tube circuit that offers increased headroom, allowing you to generate the crisp, crystal-clear clean tones that Fender aficionados know and love at higher volumes.
On the Inside
The original 5E5A circuit that powers the ’57 Custom Pro-Amp is a Holy Grail circuit renowned for its tonal flexibility. The addition of a presence control adds adjustable upper harmonic overdrive to dial in just the right amount of ’sizzle’ to your sound, making it come alive with depth and clarity. The interactive bass and treble controls grant this powerful amplifier even more sonic suppleness, allowing players to unleash their personal tone. The hand-wired circuit includes newly sourced yellow coupling capacitors chosen for authentic vintage Fender tone—sparkly cleans and creamy overdrive with smooth top end and round mids.
Alnico 15" speaker
A single 15” 8-ohm Eminence Legend speaker—powered by 28 watts of pure Fender tube tone—cranks out plenty of vintage tone with robust low end and vibrant highs with medium breakup when pushed.
Stylish and classic design
The ’57 Custom Pro Amp also sports the legendary warm, golden look of vintage tweed along with classic chickenhead control knobs, top-mounted controls, leather handle and dual ¼” input jacks to accommodate both low and high output instruments. When you plug into the ’57 Custom Pro-Amp, you’re plugging into a piece of history—the veritable soul of rock ‘n’ roll. Includes a protective cover.
Here's what Fender say about the 57 range
Fender’s late 1950s family of amps, known as the “Narrow Panel Tweed” models, represented the height of amplifier technology and tone for that time. Their all-tube circuitry, resonant cabinetry, and player-centric feature set combine for what might be the perfect example of beautiful clean tone that can be easily pushed into harmonically rich warm distortion. Six decades later, they continue to be highly prized by professional guitarists and collectors alike. The Fender ‘57 Custom Series comprises of four distinct models, three of which will be familiar to today’s Fender fan. The new ‘57 CUSTOM CHAMP, ‘57 CUSTOM DELUXE, and ‘57 CUSTOM TWIN have all been thoughtfully modified from previous ’57 reissues, employing custom vintage tone capacitors, 12AY7 preamp tubes, and more. A fourth model, the ‘57 CUSTOMPRO-AMP, has never been reissued before. A medium-powered unit, its 15-inch speaker creates unique throaty tones with huge bottom end, yet it has plenty of highs for sparkling electric guitar tone production.
Each ’57 Custom model hits a specific spot in the range, to cover applications from studio to stage to arena. These amplifiers can provide perfect re-creation of historic guitar tones, or can be used as a firm foundation for creating new sounds.
