This Guitar Amplifier is Tweed de-luxe style amplifier (clone) with the famous 5e3 hand wired circuit. Handbuilt by myself, I have been building Amplifiers of all types since about 1968. Please note that the name Tweed Deluxe 5E3 is a Fender product, this is similar, designed to recreate the classic sound and feedback potential of the late’50s. Great pride is taken in the design of each amplifier and I take pride in using USA parts wherever possible. All wiring is hand done of course and the end result has been tested and tuned over a period of months to ensure reliability. All feeds to the tube heating elements are twisted and tucked into the corners of the chassis. All other wiring is carefully placed and shielded as well to avoid noises. End result is a beautiful tone, whether you want mellow or crank it up and play some Jimi Hendrix, have at it. It breaks up nicely when driven, great distortion and feedback if desired. This is a LOUD Amp. By the way, I saw Jimi in Chicago in August of 1967, blew my mind and I have been playing with amps ever since. Mergilli in my opinion the best guy out there doing hand built finger joint solid pine cabinets Does a hand crafted tweed covering and is lacquered in true vintage style.

Here we have a fantastic custom made reproduction of a late 50s Fr 5F1 Champ Amplifier. This was hand made here in the USA. Hammond power transformer and Classic Tone output transformer made in the USA. WGS Warehouse Guitar Speakers Veteran 10 inch speaker. Also available is a Jensen C10Q reissue. I personally prefer the warmth of the WGS but you may prefer the brightness of the Jensen. You choose which speaker you want. These are 8 ohm speakers as the amp is wired for 8 ohms. Is a larger finger jointed pine with plywood baffles, all covered in laquered tweed. The tubes are all hand picked vintage American. Not only is this amp beautiful to look at, it sounds fantastic just like one of the best from the 50s. The Fer badge on the front is for appearance only as this was not actually built by Fendr.
