Fender Finally Reissues One of Their Original Amplifiers!

At long last, Fender has finally reissued the loudest of its original amplifiers. Introducing the Fender '57 Custom Pro-Amp guitar combo amplifier -- a modern reconstruction of the 1950s narrow-panel tweed Twin amplifier, one of three original amplifiers offered by Leo Fender when he founded the company in 1946. While Fender has been reissuing vintage amplifiers through its line of '57 Custom amps since the early 2000s, this is the first time a faithful tribute to the original Pro-Amp has been made available.

The Original Fender Amp

With the '57 Custom Pro, Fender has painstakingly recreated one of the original guitar amplifiers. Using the original 5E5A circuit (the 1950s interaction of the Fender Pro amp circuit) and a single 15-inch speaker, the '57 Custom Pro boasts 26 watts of tube-amp power. Loud and proud, the '57 Custom Pro is powerful enough to fill any stage, yet soft and delicate when dialed down. Whether you play rock 'n' roll, blues, rockabilly, or country-western, the '57 Custom Pro is a classic rock guitarist's dream come true.

Features:

- Faithful reissue of Fender's classic 1957 narrow-panel tweed Pro amplifier
- 26-watt hand-wired tube combo amplifier for guitar
- Two non-switching (simultaneous) channels: instrument and microphone
- Specially designed single 15-inch Eminence speaker with vintage-era construction and 8-ohms total impedance
- Vintage 5E5A circuit (the 5th iteration of the 1950s Fender Pro Super circuit)
- Simple design: one 12AY7 and two 12AX7 preamp tubes, two 6L6 power amp tubes, and one 5AR4 rectifier tube
- Fender Pure Vintage yellow capacitors and Schumacher transformers
- Replaceable fuse provides over-current protection
- Standby switch allows for reduced wear on amplifier tubes
- Two 1/4-inch guitar inputs (normal and bright)
- Two 1/4-inch microphone inputs for instruments or guitar and mic output from the same amp
- Chrome control panel with classic metal lever on/off and standby toggle switches, vintage-style pre-LED red power indicator, fuse knob, independent instrument and microphone volume pots, shared tone pots for treble and bass, and shared presence pot for ultra-high frequency tone adjustment
- Tapered vintage-style "chickenhead" control knobs
- Fender Bassman-style grille cloth
- Finger-joined solid pine cabinet construction
- Leather handle strap with chrome mounting hardware
- Vintage-style metal Fender logo badge
- Includes tweed cloth protective cover
- Unit weighs 51 pounds

Fender '57 Custom Pro-Amp Guitar Combo

The original 5E5A circuit that powers the '57 Custom Pro-Amp is a Holy Grail circuit, renowned for its tonal flexibility. The addition of a presence control adds adjustable upper harmonic overdrive to dial in just the right amount of 'sizzle' to your sound, making it come alive with depth and clarity. The interactive bass and treble controls grant this powerful amplifier even more sonic suppleness, allowing players to unleash their personal tone. The hand-wired 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. A single 15" 8-ohm Eminence Special Design speaker--powered by 26 watts of pure Fender tube tone--cranks out plenty of vintage tone with robust low end and vibrant highs with medium breakup when pushed.

The '57 Custom Pro Amp also sports the legendary warm, golden look of vintage tweed along with classic chickenhead control knobs, top-mounted controls, leather handle and dual 1/4" input jacks to accommodate both low and high output instruments. When you plug into the '57 Custom Pro-Amp, you're plugging into a piece of history. Includes a protective cover.

- Hand-Wired Circuitry on Eyelet Board

"Fender 57 Pro amplifier"
Overall: I bought this amp January, 2017. Gigged with it a week later. The amp sounded great! Cool thing was, another band played after us. Their guitar player used the 57. I could sit back and listen. Sweet! Now, a year later, gigged with it Last night. I jumped the two channels and ran both at 3. More than enough volume. I wanted to turn up but I knew it would have been way too loud. Kind of a small bar. Can't wait to play outside with it. So, if you can afford it, you will not be disappointed with this amp. But, from now on, I'll be using my 65 Deluxe Reverb for smaller indoor gigs. I've been using a Gibson Les Paul Elegant and playing mostly classic rock. A little country. Using a Tim overdrive and a Strymon Flint. I guess if there is any negative thing to say, it would only be that it has no reverb. Before buying Fender equipment, I was using a Marshall 62 reissue Bluesbreaker, then the Mesa Mark V. After buying the 65 Deluxe, I was hooked on Fender! The 57 Custom Deluxe is my next objective!
Style of Music: Mostly classic rock. Some country and blues.
