'57 TWEED DELUXE / PRO
5E3 / 5E5 ( 12/26 Watt ) Early break up or loud and clean, you choose.
No compromises here. This is a hand wired all-tube combo amp that may appear mild mannered but it's menacing. This convertible Tweed Deluxe graduates to Pro with the addition of a 5U4GB or GZ34, and 2 5881 power tubes. Just “Plug n Play”. This amp is cathode biased and engineered to handle the extra power requirements without breaking a sweat, and without a visit to your tech for biasing. Use input 1 straight in with your guitar, or 2 with a strong pedal board. Then jumper Normal and Bright for an additional drive signal. If you like it a bit cleaner there is a Lo/Hi Gain foot switch to tame the beast. Go from a small club to a large stage with this single amp without losing that “Tweed” vibe. Crazy good and crazy loud, and only 35 lbs.
