Part of a stunning collection of tweed amps the 57 Custom Twin-Amp is an amp for the true tone junkie. It replicates the original low-powered tweed Twin circuit, coveted for its sweet, singing tone and highly responsive dynamics. This responsive handwired amp generates clear tone with a bit of “hair” to bring out the expressiveness and nuances of your playing.
This amp is powerful, pedal-friendly and offers near-limitless tone-shaping possibilities. Whether you want clean tones with just a hint of extra crunch in the upper frequencies or a fat, bluesy tone this is an amp to be proud of.
On the Inside
The tone of the ’57 Custom Twin-Amp comes from the 5E8A circuit powered by a single 12AY7 and three 12AX7 preamp tubes—a classic design that produces a wide range of useful, highly desirable tones. The combination of tubes results in a sound that breaks up at reasonable volume while still cranking out pristine, clear, three-dimensional clean tones and fat, greasy overdriven blues tones effortlessly.The smooth-sounding bass, treble and presence controls sculpt your sound while offering a high degree of interactivity, unlocking a surprising wealth of sonic possibilities.
Alnico 12" speakers
A duet of 6L6 power tubes generates 40 watts of power, adding natural tube compression to your tone when “slammed”, while a pair of growling 12” alnico speakers replicates the subtlest playing nuances.
Stylish and classic design
From its golden brown tweed covering to the top-mounted control panel bearing classic chicken-head control knobs, this amplifier embodies eye-catching, vintage-style Fender cool. Includes a protective amp 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.
