      Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

      I collect all the mini amps and they are really just to display. My first was the Marshal stack which sounded horrible so I assumed ALL did. The Orange is the best built,highest quality but is a high gain one trick pony. However the Fender 57 sounds surprisingly warm and the controls work well. From fairly clean to good grit. Also takes pedals well. A tube screamer dialed low really brings out the tone. Only complaint is it is one of the lowest in volume but I will take that over those that are brittle and thin.

        Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

        I just wanted/needed a very small and fairly quiet little amp to use at home for practice that wouldn't disturb the neighbors. Even in the middle of the night if I wanted. I got tired of wearing headphones in that situation. This little amp is perfect for that. Nice and quiet if I want. But it can get pretty loud too for it's size. And it's got great sound. An excellent practice tool.

          Looks so good, I'm looking for a tweed case to match.

          Think outside this tiny little box...

          By Rick

          from In the Heartland Ghetto

          Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

          I decided to buy one of these because I figured it would be a fun little practice amp, and it just looked cool with my 1988 '52 RI Tele. I was disappointed with the sound out of the built in speakers, but I could tell there was potential when it was used with headphones. I pulled the back off of it and hooked the speaker leads to a 1X12 Vox extension cab (loaded with a Celestion Greenback)and it ROCKED! That convinced me to pull the whole thing apart, lacquer the tweed covering (even better looking and a classic finish for a tweed amp), drill a hole in the back and mount a Switchcraft 12A 1/4" phone jack (normalled to the stock twin 2" speakers) so I can plug it into any cabinet I choose. The headphone jack can be used as is to drive headphones, or run through a passive summing box and become a mono line level signal to run into a mixing console. One word of caution - as the 9V battery drains, it does affect the sound slightly, so it is a good idea to run it on a power supply when you can.

          Sounds great, but be careful...

          By Richard Egnot

          from Cleveland, OH

          Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

          I originally got the Danelectro Hodad, the one with the effects, but the only good sound it had was the 50's-ish slapback echo, which has very few applications. Plus, I liked that the Fender minis were a little larger. SO, I got this one home and plugged in the 9v adapter I got for it. I smelled the familiar scent of burning electronics, and lo and behold, this little guy was billowing white smoke. Oops. I still have no idea why, but not being one to give up, I threw a 9v battery in (in my mind, to total the devastation before having to return yet another mini-amp) and the 9v battery makes this work like an absolute dream. It sounds great, even mic'ed up, well enough to blend with my 100-watt Marshall half stack. The amp itself looks great. Real tweed cover, wood cab, real grille cloth, and the nice little leather handle looks great. I can only assume mine is defective, but I don't feel like returning it and dealing with another item on backorder, which seems to be getting more and more common with GC. My advice: don't get this if you're opposed to batteries. Don't even bother trying it with an adapter if you're a battery person. As long as you can work with that, enjoy what may be the greatest mini-amp ever.

          Great little amp!

          By BILL WEIST

          Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

          I returned the Danelectro Honeytone amp and bought this one. This amp is 100 times better than the Honeytone. It sounds great with the speakers or the headphones. It looks cool too. It's well worth the extra $. If you want a small portible practice amp, you won't go wrong with this one.

          1w of RAGING POWER

          By Bryce Stone

          from Fort Collins, CO

          Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

          I picked this up as a gift for a guitarist thinking they would enjoy it, THEY LOVE IT. I was quite shocked to hear the great tone coming from this thing. I immediately went out and bought one for myself for my electric violin after playing with it (which also sounds great on this amp). It absolutely makes for a great little practice amp, especially with the 9v battery option you can carry this thing around the house or to your backyard. As far as durability goes it is light, which I dont view as a bad thing, definitely seems like it can take quite a bump. Also the tweed is some awesome icing on this beautiful cake.

          Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

          I bought this amp to play inside my home without making loud noise and space too. This amp is great. i love it with the nice clean tone and distortion too. i recomend it to any one who really needs a nice little amp with good sound. It works great for a small speaker too for my laptop. Best Small Amp Ever.

          tube-ish sound!

          By Joe

          from ogden, utah

          Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

          This little amp is a lifesaver if you need to play at low volumes and don't want to use headphones! It sounds great as long as you dial it in right. The cleans are a little quiet, but I have noticed that this little amp responds very well to your guitar's volume, and surprisingly well to your picking. It isn't as responsive to picking as a real tube amp, but its more responsive than my solidstate Peavey Vypyr!
