The '57 Deluxe is proof that vintage Fenders are in short supply, so FENDER® is graciously releasing the '57 Deluxe, a handwired all-tube tone machine that's great for any style of rock, blues, or country. The pine cabinet is covered in a genuine lacquered tweed covering with vintage brown/gold grille cloth. Two 12AX7 preamp tubes along with a matched pair of Groove Tubes GT6V6 output tubes provide the sound we've all grown to expect from vintage Fender tube amps. Clean or crunchy, no matter what your style, the Fender '57 Deluxe is the perfect choice.

The '57 Deluxe boasts the classic sound of an original Fender Deluxe amp of the 1950s, which was a medium-powered amp that found its way onto countless live and recorded performances. The solid pine cabinet and 12" Jensen P-12Q speaker - just like the original - contribute to the '57 Deluxe's resonant, touch-sensitive performance.The original Tweed Deluxe amp of the 1950s is well known as being one of the finest tone machines ever devised, and this reissue maintains that tradition.

Electronically, the '57 Deluxe is equipped with handwired all tube circuitry on an eyelet board with a late 1950s 5E3 circuit pumping out about 12 watts of true Fender tube tone. The tube complement consists of a pair of 12AX7s at the preamp stage with a matched pair of Groove Tubes GT6V6 output tubes. Tube tweakers and vintage enthusiasts can swap one of the 12AX7s for a 12AY7 to capture the lower-gain tone of the original Deluxe from the '50s. Fender also thoughtfully incorporated a 5Y3 rectifier tube, which contributes to natural tube compression and "sag" when the amp is pushed harder.
