OVERVIEW

An authentic re-creation of one of the most beloved guitar amplifiers of all time!

The Fender '57 Deluxe Combo Amp is a 12W hand-wired tube amplifier with a 12" speaker. Super cool and timeless, the lower settings of the "chicken head" volume control result in harmonically rich clean sound perfect for authentic vintage rock, blues, and country playing; when cranked up, the Deluxe amp's fat, compressed, wildly distorted tone is not only inspiring, but just plain fun. It also records easily, thanks to all that natural compression. American design, American made!

Guitarists who want a moderately powered tube amp for home, studio, or small gigs will fall in love with the '57 Deluxe; tube amp enthusiasts who appreciate the unique qualities of hand-wired, hand-built models and Fender fans & collectors will consider the '57 Deluxe a must-have!

The original Fender Deluxe amp of the 1950s was a medium-powered unit designed to let guitarists "hold their own" in a small group. As blues, Western, and rockabilly bands began getting louder and wilder, the overdriven tone of a cranked-up Deluxe found its way onto countless smokin' hot live and recorded performances. Over the past five decades, from Memphis to Liverpool to Texas, players of every conceivable style have employed this awesome tone machine for its unmistakable warm, rich tube tone.

Original late '50s hand-wired 12W 5E3 circuit is one of the most touch-sensitive, dynamic amp sounds of all time; manageable volume level for studio or small venue; natural compression adds sustain, even at clean settings.

Solid pine cabinet gives the tone a warm, natural wood resonance.

Groove Tubes 12AX7 preamp tubes provide sensitive, higher-gain tone; user may install a 12AY7 for the original lower-gain sound, if desired.

Jensen P-12Q Alnico-magnet speaker is the same model as used in many of the originals; sounds nice and sparkly clean, then "barks" when you hit it hard.

Simply the Best!!!!!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender 57 Deluxe 12W 1x12 Combo Amp:

This is the greatest amp I have ever played through! I changed the first 12AX7 to the original 12AY7 and it is the all time best blues amp I have ever heard. The tone control affects the tone a lot more than I expected, it is also a little louder than I expected I play with a drummer who plays hard and it keeps up with him fine. I plug my R8 les Paul into the first input, jump the two channels together, crank it up to around 7/8 ish and the tone just blows me away!! Then for soloing I boost it with a TS-808 Tube Screamer. Simply the best tone I have ever heard the best amp I will ever have.

Fender 57 Deluxe Re-Issue

By Mike--XRSK

from Wisconsin

Comments about Fender 57 Deluxe 12W 1x12 Combo Amp:

To me, this is a fun sound. The highs, lows and mid?s are beautiful sounding. Its 25 pounds so it?s easy to operate and give a wide range of tones with the simple configuration. I'm so glad I traded in my Fender Princeton Recording Amp and paid the extra for the Fender 57 Amp. I play my Fender Eric Clapton Stat with this. I play the blues the jam out some who songs and it is more than I expected from Fender. Fender Thank you for such fun toy!
