Overview

The late-'50s tweed-covered Fender Bandmaster 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 Jensen 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 electrifying-especially when cranked up.

Features
  • Presence, Bass, Treble, Volume (Instument Channel) and Volume (Mic Channel) controls
  • Two channels
  • Four inputs (1/4", Two MIC and Two INST)
  • Two speaker jacks (Internal and External)
  • Finger-jointed solid pine construction
  • Vintage-style leather handle
  • Chicken head style pointer
  • Three 12AX7 pre amp tubes
  • Two 6L6 power tubes
  • One 5AR4 rectifier tube

    Comments about Fender Custom Series '57 Bandmaster Tube Hand-Wired Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    This amp is wonderful, you won't be disappointed! I seriously had reservations about dropping that kind of change but after a few weeks/many hours of play I would gladly do it again.. Quality right out of the box, I've had quite a few disappointments show up at the door- not w/the '57.. Pedals- what pedals this amp has some vibe I have never heard/felt w/a straight line in. The 3x10 alnicos are fantastic- wide range of options w/them. Clean, gritty, spongy they can do it all. Very pleased w/my '57.

    A Classic Amp And A Tone King!

    Comments about Fender Custom Series '57 Bandmaster Tube Hand-Wired Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    The Fende IMO, this amp, and the "Blackface" Fender Custom Vibrolux RI have the best tone of any Fender amps I've ever heard. Both of those amps use Jensen P10R alnico speakers that have beautiful shimmering highs without any harshness, and nice smooth mid-range and lows. Pete Townsend used this model amp on the "Who's Next" album and for many years on stage. A classic!
