Featuring the classic 5E8A circuit and a pair of beefy 6L6 power tubes, this tweed-covered 2x12" combo is a perfect addition to anyone's amp collection.

The Fender '57 Custom Twin-Amp guitar combo amplifier is a vintage-styled tribute to the original narrow-panel Fender Twin. Introduced in 1952, the Fender Twin is one guitar amp that's old enough to be your father -- a rock amp that's as old as rock 'n' roll itself. This time-honored design has been faithfully reproduced for modern guitarists in today's hand-crafted '57 Custom Twin. Packed to the brim with hand-wound copper, the '57 Custom Twin produces luscious tones and a classic crunch that solid-state amplifiers simply can't match. It's the big daddy of all classic amps.

Time-Tested Tubes

Sixty years later and still going strong, Fender's original design for the Fender Twin is one thing you'll be glad hasn't changed. Flaunting two 12-inch speakers and 40 watts of tube-driven power, the '57 Custom Twin sounds just like a real vintage amplifier. That's because it's been carefully crafted using period-accurate materials and the original 5E8A amplification circuit which made the Fender Twin of the 1950s famous in the first place.

Fender '57 Twin-Amp Guitar Combo Amp

The magic of the Fender '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, three-dimensional 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 top-mounted control panel bearing classic chickenhead control knobs, this amplifier embodies eye-catching, vintage-style Fender cool. Just like the original, the Bright and Normal channels each include high and low gain 1/4" inputs to accommodate a variety of instruments. The '57 Custom Twin-Amp is a versatile sonic architect -- timeless, flexible tone is matched with clean power and stunning visual style. Includes a protective amp cover.

This is it for me (Until I can afford an original ‘57 Twin). As far as the classic fender sound it doesn’t get much better than this. I’ve had modified hot rods, deluxe’s, supersonic, drri, Vox, Ampeg, Friedman and orange. Nothing I’ve had compares to this amp. It’s expensive but it’s worth it. Put a maxon or ts9 in front of it, crank it to 7+ and this thing screams. It’s loud, but it’s 40watts so you knew that. If you buy it, you won’t regret it.
