Take a peek at the Fender '57 Deluxe Tweed guitar amplifier head:
The Power of 12 Watts
Many guitarists aren't really aware of what lower and mid-wattage amps have to offer. Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Steve Cooper, Joe Walsh, Eric Clapton, Neil Young -- these are just a few guitarists known for taking advantage of low-watt amps. These kinds of amps respond to subtleties more noticeably. Just a few tweaks of your volume and tone controls on your guitar will surprise you, and you'll certainly notice the sensitivity this head has just by moving its volume and tone controls ever so slightly.
Hand-wired Circuitry and All-tube Tone
A lot of attention and love went into this '57 Deluxe Tweed amp head. All of Fender's Custom series all-tube heads come with hand-wired circuitry and first-class components -- an eyelet board and a late '50s 5E3 circuit to name a few. Your signal is pumped through two 12AX7 preamp tubes ad two 6V6 power amp tubes for a vibrant, warm color that's clear and well-defined when dialed down for its clean setting. Crank this baby up a little for an inviting and creamy overdrive.
Dynamic Sound from Simple Control Layout
The top metal panel of your '57 Deluxe Tweed amp head has a simple, no-nonsense layout for you to dial in your sound. Next to your four inputs are your mic volume, instrument volume, and tone controls. You can get a lot of different sounds simply by playing around with these volume and tone knobs. Pushing your signal a bit will give off a smooth, naturally distorted output that doesn't come with heads of higher wattages. There's also a nice natural compression that comes out at higher signal levels with this baby.
A Proper Sibling
This head is the sibling of the infamous Fender Deluxe combo amp, but since this is the head version, you get a little bit more versatility. You can chose your own cabinet to project the pristine tube tone this head offers. It's lighter than the combo amp, weighing in at only 17.5 pounds, so loading this baby around for recording sessions or gigs is as simple as setting it down on your cab, plugging in, and playing.
