This is a beautiful guitar amp from Fender which is completely hand wired and made to exacting specifications with the highest quality components. Although it's expensive the amp oozes quality, refinement and taste from every direction and the sound is incredibly responsive to different playing attacks and dynamics. This makes it a dream for blues guitar players in particular. In this article we'll take a closer look at what the Fender '57 Twin has to offer and give you something to dream about.
Fender does a wonderful job of replicating the 1955 - 1957 golden era of its amps with a low powered 5E8A circuit. This gives you an output of 40watts into 2 x 12 inch Alnico speakers. You'll find the tones very harmonically rich and able to replicate every nuance of your pick attack, constantly rewarding your extra efforts with increased attack from the amp.
The amp is perfect for blues, rock and country playing and more than being just a clean amp, it will also overdrive at higher volumes to produce some amazingly harmonically rich distortion. If you are a good player and know how to vary your pick attack this amp is going to reward you all night with fantastic amounts of real expression right from the heart.
So where is all this power coming from? Well it has a pair of GT6L6-GE output tubes which are made in the U.S.A and the power supply is straight from Fenders '50s dual rectifier arrangement which is not see a whole lot. It uses 5U4 rectifier tubes. This means that the sag from this amp is less than other Fender models.
In the preamp we have 4 high gain 12AX7 tubes which can be substituted for lower gain ones if you really want the authentic 50's sound. The control panel includes 4 inputs (2 bright and 2 normal) along with treble, bass and a presence knob. The cabinet is beautifully made form solid pine and has a wonderfully warm tone. It's covered in lacquered tweed with a vintage brown grill cloth.
