Tweed Super clone from Retro Sound Australia, back when they were operational.
2 x 10″ Weber Alnico Classic speakers, 40 watts. Handwired for the ultimate sounding amplifier.
An old message from Greg Powis when Retro was in business … “We specialise in hand made, high-end reproductions of the classic late 1950’s Fender Tweed amps.
Our amps use the absolute highest quality parts available including Mercury Magnetics transformers, WeberVST vintage Alnico Speakers, NOS Valves, Sprague & Mallory capacitors, NOS Carbon Comp resistors, Switchcraft jacks, Carling switches & so on….All meticulously hand wired to exacting specifications (see attached pics of our work).
Our cabinets are all hand made by us to exact original dimensions using the solid void free pine (dovetailed) & marine grade ply. Original cotton tweed is applied using Hide Glue (just like the originals) & then shot with up to 15 coats of Shellac & Nitrocellulose Lacquer .
All our amps are custom built to order with a 10-12 week build time.”
