A coveted classic is back.
The late-'50s tweed-covered Fender Bandmasterâ?¢ guitar amplifier combined great looks with sweet tone and powerful performance. Hailed as one of the true holy-grail amps among guitarists and collectors, vintage examples are rare and highly sought after.
The new '57 Bandmaster amp now joins our prestigious Custom series, with all-tube hand-wired circuitry and premium components. Fender has faithfully reproduced the classic 5E7 circuit, which pumps about 26W through three 10" alnico-magnet speakers, and they enlisted JensenÂ® to help create the P10R-F driver (a Fender exclusive), which is voiced for warm, sensitive response. The Bandmaster amp's harmonically rich clean tones are perfect for vintage rock, blues and country styles, and its naturally touch-sensitive overdrive tone sounds electrifyingâ??especially when cranked up.
