Great sounding, extremely portable.

By QualityGuy

from NY

Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

The Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp delivers great sound quality for its size. Other mini-amps have a very "plastic"-like sound. This amp can be blasted at full gain, and still maintain a usable sound. The headphone output also is great to practice with headphones on the road without having to use a big effects pedal, or a big amp. The Fender Mini Twin Amp offers three knobs to use. These are Volume, Tone, and Drive. Obviously it doesn't have outstanding sounds, but this Fender Mini Twin gives you a nice sound to use on the road, or when you are away from home... All Mini-Amps for around this price are more or less the same, but I found this one to be a bit better than the rest. It honestly doesn't matter which mini amp you choose, but if you want some decent control and tone, the Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp is a good choice for you.

Sturdy little amp for under $100

By cjkershner

from New York, NY

Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

During an extraordinary bout of procrastination, I decided to add a pick-up to my ukulele. It is a cheapish Hilo uke (so cheap that Guitar Center doesn't like to admit they sell them), and I was prepared to throw down whatever cash was needed to see what sort of sounds I could get out of it. I had attached a K&K Hot Shot piezo pick-up just below the sound hole under the strings and then trotted off to my local Guitar Center to purchase an amp. I'd done a little research on-line and settled for the Fender '57 Mini Twin for a number of reasons, namely: looks, price, and size (in that order). Imagine my amusement when I walked into the store, asked for the Fender [Mini] Twin, and was shown to the full-sized amplifier. The sales rep's face was priceless when I told him I planned to hook it up to an ukulele. Then, I explained that he'd misunderstood me and I was looking for the smaller version. What did I expect from an amp that cost $50 and came in a plastic-and-cardboard sleeve? Not much. But the truth is, I'm quite surprised by how well it has performed. The retro styling, with the chicken-headed knobs and tweed covering, draws a lot of attention at gigs and it's small enough to stick -- cables and all -- into a backpack. A 9V battery powers the twin 2" speakers for a considerable period (I've yet to change it), and it accepts power from a 9V DC plug. The volume and tone is decent, as is the drive. It's not an amp for audiophiles, but its portability, looks, and price suits me fine for simply uking around.

well worth the price

By Unholy Passion

from Manchester, CT

Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

The '57 Mini Twin Amp is well worth the price when you hear it's clear tone. Through the dual speakers, it's just loud enough to keep your songs down to a personal level, but put on a pair of headphones and you'll hear how this amp is meant to be heard. There isn't much distortion, but if you buy a vintage style amp, you should be looking for vintage tone, and it's presented hear nicely. The Mini Twin is just loud enough for personal play and the quality of it's features and it's durability make the price unbeatable. I paid more for a Danelectro mini amp, and it only lasted a month. The amp will present you with smaller details in sound also, I played my guitar as an upright because I don't have a bass, and it picked up all the neck slaps without any feedback or scratching. You can't beat the price on such a small powerful amp that's looks so good. It'd make a great gift.

Fender Mini Twin Amp

By ccasch

from PIttsford, NY

Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

I bought this much like many others who are taken by this amp's vintage look, along with it's portability and sound. I bought two to run them in stereo from my fx processor so I can travel with a stereo rig to hotels, or guest stays. Easy to use, easy to make great sounds with. I play both my Les Paul Standard and Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster through the Mini Twin and never have a second thought about this being a junk product. Absolutely great for jamming anytime and anywhere!

A Bark and a bite

By Supermuffbigfuzz

from Boston, MA

Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

This mini-amp comes with a great deal of energy. Perfect for simple power chord -riffs, but lacks a clean volume. Turning the drive down also turns off the volume,apparently. The pure emotion of the drive makes this okay;however. I highly recommend this to the beginner, starting out by learning said riffs by ear.

57 Mini Amp

By Mike

from Florida

Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

For what this amp does, it does it well. It is only one watt, but it has a built in distortion. It sounds okay and it is incredibly portable. Not only is it all of these things but it looks awesome and very vintage. And, at the price that these have been selling, Id say its the best portable amp on the market.

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!

    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.
