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, 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 paired with two 5AR4 rectifier tubes creates robust power amp response, 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 ¼” 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.
CLASSIC TWEED TONE
Heard on countless recordings since the 1950s, the timeless guitar amp tone of the original-era tweed-covered Fender amps and their descendants really come alive when cranked with remarkable touch sensitivity and sound.
SPECIAL DESIGN SPEAKER
This special-design speaker uses vintage-era construction for versatile, highly dynamic tone spanning every sonic shade from clean to mean.
VINTAGE-STYLE YELLOW CAPACITORS
This amp features custom-made yellow coupling capacitors chosen specifically for their authentic vintage Fender tone. In vintage tone circuits they generate extra harmonic content and airiness.
As a special touch, this amp’s handle is carefully crafted from leather. Not only is the handle durable and stylish, the all-leather construction is an authentic detail from our past.
In a nod to our past, the logo badge is a reproduction of the classic badge and font used on our classic late-‘50s tweed amps.
ASSEMBLED IN THE U.S.A.
Just like the great Fender guitar amps of the 1950s and ’60s that founded our amp legacy and defined the essence of pure tone and power, this amplifier is assembled in the United States.
