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.
The magic of the ’57 Custom Twin-Amp is in the 5E8A circuit powered by two 12AY7 and two 12AX7 preamp tubes—a classic design that produces a
wide range of useful, highly desirable tones. Ideal for playing clubs, this amp breaks up at reasonable volume while still cranking out pristine, clear, threedimensional 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.
A duet of 6L6 power tubes generates 40 watts of power, adding natural tube compression to your tone when “slammed”, while a pair of newly designed growling 12” Eminence® Special Design alnico speakers replicates the subtlest playing nuances. The handwired 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.
From its golden brown tweed covering to the topmounted control panel bearing classic chickenhead control knobs, this ampliier embodies eye-catching, vintage-style Fender cool. Just like the original, the Bright and Normal channels each include high and low gain ¼” inputs to accommodate a variety of instruments. The ’57 Custom Twin-Amp is a versatile sonic architect—timeless, lexible tone is matched
with clean power and stunning visual style. Includes a protective amp cover.
