CLASSIC TWEED TONE

Heard on countless recordings since the 1950s, the timeless guitar amp tone of the original-era tweed-covered Fender amps and their descendants really come alive when cranked with remarkable touch sensitivity and sound


SPECIAL DESIGN SPEAKER

This special-design speaker uses vintage-era construction for versatile, highly dynamic tone spanning every sonic shade from clean to mean.


VINTAGE-STYLE YELLOW CAPACITORS

This amp features custom-made yellow coupling capacitors chosen specifically for their authentic vintage Fender tone. In vintage tone circuits they generate extra harmonic content and airiness.


CHROME CONTROL PANEL


In addition to the handsome covering, this amp features the silvery style of a mirrored chrome control panel.


LEATHER HANDLE


As a special touch, this amp’s handle is carefully crafted from leather. Not only is the handle durable and stylish, the all-leather construction is an authentic detail from our past.


LOGO BADGE


In a nod to our past, the logo badge is a reproduction of the classic badge and font used on our classic late-‘50s tweed amps.
