A boutique amp from Fender?!?

When Fender set out to build a no compromise hand-built amp they did it right. This all-tube, hand-wired combo rolls back the clock and does it the old way.

Naturally, Fender came to Mercury for our top-of-the-line transformers. Sergio Hamernik and crew worked directly with Fender's engineers whose "spare no expense, no holds barred" approach helped us to create the best-sounding transformers money could buy. This result is an amp that many top players have added it to their on-stage arsenals. If you're a serious player too, this amp is definitely a "must have."

Along with the factory equipped Mercury Magnetics transformers, Fender reproduced the 1955-57 edition "low powered" 5E8A circuit, which puts 40 watts into a pair of 12" Ted Weber/Eminence® speakers. Power comes from a pair of GT6L6-GE output tubes and Fender's rarely seen mid-'50s dual rectifier arrangement (using 5U4 rectifier tubes). With this design, power amp compression or "sag" is more subtle than in many Fender tweed designs. The Twin's preamp contains four high-gain 12AX7 tubes, three of which may be substituted with 12AY7s for the original '50s low-gain sound. An internal bias pot allows easy substitution of various 6L6 types. Control panel details include normal and bright volumes, four inputs (two normal; two bright), treble, bass and presence knobs. The '57 Twin's finger-joined solid pine cabinet resonates with a warm, woody tone. The amp is covered in genuine lacquered tweed fronted with vintage brown/gold grille cloth. Leather strap handle on top and fitted cover included.

The original '57 Twin is one of the most collectible amps of all time. Its harmonically rich clean tones are perfect for a broad spectrum of music styles. We're very proud to have been part of this exclusive built in the USA project for Fender.

Retail value: $2,999.99.
