Product Description

In a historic collaboration, Fender introduces its first artist signature amplifiers-EC Series amps bearing the name of legendary guitarist Eric Clapton.

Built to the exacting specifications of Clapton himself, the EC Twinolux is a fascinating variation on the tweed '57 Twin amp and Fender's answer to his call for a special model with several distinctive features. Handmade in the United States with '50s-era output tube bias tremolo (which produced a more throbbing pulse than later Fender tremolo circuits) and a switchable power attenuator (reduces speaker output and can disable one speaker for even lower output), it presents the pinnacle of personally inspired amp tone for stage and studio alike and is a must for Clapton fans and guitarists who want the ultimate in tube performance.

Check out this video showcasing the pure tube power of the EC Twinolux:


Features:

- Hand-wired all-tube circuitry on eyelet board with premium components
- Circuit based on late-'50s Fender Twin amp model 5E8-A (about 40 watts
- Single channel with high-gain and low-gain inputs
- Tremolo with speed and intensity controls (can be selected with included footswitch)
- Dual Special Design 12" Weber speakers (by Eminence) with alnico magnets for dynamic, sensitive response

- Four 12AX7 preamp tubes and two 5U4 rectifier tubes
- Mercury Magnetics custom transformers
- Finger-joined solid pine enclosure for warm, resonant tone
- Lacquered tweed covering with vintage-style brown/gold grille cloth and leather strap handle

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Clapton Twin"
Overall: This Twin better sound good for 3k! You can buy a handwired twin used for 1500-2k so you could have stereo for 3k!! Still I now own one and I don't regret it. The tweeks are real and they are no doubt tweeks that Eric thought about or had done on his stage Twins. The Groove tubes are a no brainer and of course you could do that yourself..They really add to the harmonic richness and the big deal for a twin which is the dual power supply!! This is what gives it that awesomely cool sag and punch that makes you caress and spank your strings to get tones you have heard on all your classic rock songs..espeicially the blues guys. The attenuator is kinda lame as it is really not much but I guess it is useful in some settings. It is not a tone killer. The speaker kill switch is not mentioned by the zZ folks and it is kinda cool..! There is a little volume drop but you do go toward that Champ sound if you play the Champ game...which is full amp volume and then back off on the the guitar volume. I am really tempted to put in a Celestion in the lower speaker to see if this is even creamier..? Don't think it would hurt the overal twin performance and would add another cool flexibility.. The vibro is also clipped as well as bias so it is really organic and cool. The notes do not oscillate until you hold them.. I don't understand why EC would not have added a reverb tank as there is plenty of room in there.. I know they want to stay 57 not 65 but hey it's his call..I am sure he would have put it in. I am thinking of getting a tank from a later twin and adding it in. For now I use a pedal that give tank room and digital so it is probably going to not go away anyway. All in all this is probably the best Twin I have ever played and I am keeping this thing even though I have gone over to Fractal Axe Fx. The touch sensitivity of a good amp just brings out your best and the warmth of the clean to hair is unrivaled by any boutique amp out there.
