Overview

The hand-wired ’57 Custom Deluxe is a bit of electronic wizardry—an extraordinary amplifier with stunning clean tone and the complex, organic overdrive guitarists crave. Based on the original highly sought-after collector’s piece, this two-channel combo sings and snarls with the authentic Fender sound that birthed rock ‘n’ roll.

The original all-tube 5E3 circuit is renowned for its early-onset distortion and highly interactive controls—a little experimentation unlocks a world of tonal treats for your ears. The classic design is updated with improved volume pot tapers, offering more precise control at low settings used for rich, mellow clean tone from the normal and tremolo channels.

The hand-wired circuit includes premium yellow coupling capacitors chosen for their authentic vintage Fender tone—producing sparkly cleans and creamy overdrive with smooth top end and round mids. A single 12-in. Eminence alnico speaker delivers these rocking vintage tones, driven by a pair of 6V6 power tubes for 12 watts of classic tube sound and touch-sensitive response.

Period-accurate appointments include a lacquered tweed covering and a top-mounted control panel with easy access to the highly responsive chicken-head control knobs—all housed in a durable cabinet. With timeless looks and premium vintage sound, the ’57 Custom Deluxe delivers everything a guitarist’s heart could desire. Includes a protective cover.

Comments about Fender '57 Custom Deluxe 12W 1x12 Tube Guitar Amp:

Clean beautiful sound at lower volumes. Can really hear the tone and sound of your pickups. Crank it up and you get classic tweed overdrive. One tone and two volume controls create a wide array sonic possibilities.

Excellent Amp

By BillyCubby

from Denver, CO

Comments about Fender '57 Custom Deluxe 12W 1x12 Tube Guitar Amp:

Two volume controls and one tone control produce an amazing variety of complex sounds. The clarity is outstanding. There are nuances to the sound of my pickups that I never heard before. When run at full throttle the amp gives that classic "tweed" sound that no other amp can produce. Plus its brand new so you don't have to worry about maintaining a 60 year old amp. I have been playing professionally for 40 years and can honestly say the 57 Custom Deluxe is one of the best sounding amps I have owned.

Comments about Fender '57 Custom Deluxe 12W 1x12 Tube Guitar Amp:

This '57 Custom Deluxe is the most awesome amp I have ever used used at home! It's got the sound of great guitars coming out of every inch of it plus you get to link the two channels with a jump and utilize both mic volume and instrument volumes at the same time as well as shape the tone. Simple, straight forward and a pleasure to play through at a volume I can use in the House! Just terrific historic tones that are on thousands of iconic records of the last sixty years!

I love this amp. Out of the park on this one Fender. The circuit is very versatile, and plays wonderfully. I'm thinking I would like the 6L6 5e3 now.
