Sings Oh So Sweetly

The ’57 Custom Twin-Amp replicates the original so-called “low-powered” tweed Twin platform, 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. Robust and powerful, this pedal-friendly performer offers near-limitless tone-shaping possibilities.

Features
  • 40-watt hand-wired all-tube guitar combo amplifier
  • Two newly designed 12” Eminence Special Design alnico speakers
  • Classic 5E8A circuit with Fender Pure Vintage yellow capacitors, two 12AY7 preamp tubes and Mercury Magnetics transformers
  • Pair of dual inputs accommodates multiple instruments and varying output levels
  • Includes a protective amp cover
