Fender '57 Twin-Amp
The Fender '57 Twin-Amp (Custom Series) is a reissue guitar combo amplifier. This is modeled after the original Fender Twin design as far as I can tell, and although I'm not sure exactly what year they started making them, 1957 seems to make sense. The amp is an all tube amp and has 40 watts of power into 4 ohms and two 12" speakers. It has two 5U4 rectifier tubes and has a classic tweed look and design. It also has four 1/4" inputs - two for the normal input channel and two for a bright input channel.

UTILIZATION

The make up of the Fender '57 Twin-Amp is easy to follow, regardless of your experience with Twin amps. The parameters you'll find here include volume for the bright channel, volume for the normal channel, presence, and bass and treble control. It's very easy to get a good sound from this amp, as it sounds pretty much amazing no matter what you do with it. A manual shouldn't be necessary.

SOUNDS

The Fender '57 Twin-Amp is up there with some of the best amps that I've ever heard. Yes it's a reissue, but that doesn't mean much when it's pretty much a part for part replica of the original. I've only used the amp for recording in the studio when on a recent session one of the session musicians brought in the amp to use for his electric and pedal steel guitars. It's such a pretty sound to me - it's the perfect combination of grit and pure clean sound. Truly one of the best tube amps I've heard in a while.

OVERALL OPINION

While the Fender '57 Twin-Amp is an incredible amp and is up there with some of the best I've heard, the price certainly reflect this and it won't be affordable for most musicians. It's definitely a pro's amplifier as only professional's will be able to afford and warrant spending this much money on an amp. Still, if you're lucky enough to use one in a studio, please take advantage as it's a very special amplifier!!

Fender '57 Twin-Amp
This magnificent achievement of the Custom Shop reissue model 1955 to 1957 designed in Scottsdale, AZ., USA. Made in Corona, Ca.USA comes compete favorably with most high-end amplifiers available on the market. Wired by hand using the finest components available.

• Two lamps GT6L6-GE Groove Tubes ™ matched and made in the USA.
• Two lamps 5U4 recovery used in a special circuit, rarely used by Fender in the mid 50s. This type of food has a more subtle compression than other Fender Tweed. Some guitarists "blues" remove one of the 5U4 for a more saturated.

• Protective cover included special.
• Dimensions: H (56.81 cm), L (59.69 cm), P (26.67 cm)
• Weight: 24 kg

UTILIZATION

The extreme quality of this amp is undoubtedly the excellence and simplicity of its design. No frills and unnecessary settings, everything is designed to optimize the performance, dynamics and depth.
Is easily obtained excellent sound.

SOUNDS

This amp is the reference for all sounds like Rock / Blues / Country / Rockabilly, clear or semi saturated.
Note that it is possible to bridge the two channels, that allows you to get an even fuller, explosive and corpulent as noted in the previous opinion.

I use at home and in rehearsal or club and it delivers a fantastic clear sound even at relatively low volume with all my guitars, especially with my ES-335, my Telecaster, Strat and my Les Paul. It is perfect with all these.
We must push a little to get a big crunch natural, but this amp welcomes with joy the whole pedal worthy of the name as my Fulltone OCD (crunch overdrive) or my Stymon Flynt (reverb and tremolo) ...

OVERALL OPINION

I used to many times in rehearsal and jam with other friends (I always wanted to own one) and it finally became mine for a few weeks!

I had the opportunity to try and have other models in other ranges like the Blues Deluxe, Blues Jr tweed reissue of the Marshall Bluesbreaker ... These proved to be aggressive in the midrange / treble.
The '57 Twin unlike my other amps do not have this problem, it has a kind of natural compression all absolutely usable sound levels.

It is placed in the high-end brand, very expensive in absolute new and very rare opportunity to find their owners should not release them easily :-) because it is a fantastic amp!

Fender '57 Twin-Amp
Tube guitar combo (GT6L6) hand-wired, 40 watts, 2x12 "Fender Ted Weber / Eminence, 2 channels.

Developed from an original 1957 Twin borrowed from a collector,


UTILIZATION

This amp is characterized by its simple design: no frills and unnecessary settings, no manual is necessary to take a good slap.

SOUNDS

I use it with a Nocaster 51, CS, Masterbuilt Start and in both cases it is a delight.
I plug a Gibson also Byrdland and I think of all the amps I could marry this guitar is the one who most sublime.

Playing the guitar volume, it easily passes a beautiful crystal clear to a big crunch.

OVERALL OPINION

I spent my last 3 years to buy and sell all the most famous amps, seeking the best possible result for the guitars mentioned above. Result, in my opinion nothing beats a good and a good Fender Vox (60s, or JMI) at least for the music I like (blues, rock, alternative).

The Vibroking is perhaps the ultimate reference Fender but it is very powerful, making it almost unusable except on stage.

In contrast, the 57 has clear sound fabulous even at relatively low volumes. It washables no aggression. We must push a little to get a big crunch, but as he happily welcomes any pedal worthy of the name, this is not a defect.

It is expensive in absolute terms (paid nearly 3,000 euros and is found today around 2600 euros on some sites) but you will not regret this madness.
