Description

This is an original 1957 Fender Tweed Tremolux amp 5E9A w/a period correct Jensen P12Q speaker dated to the 52nd week of 1955. The rare larger cabinet’s tweed covering is slightly worn all over but very intact & quite pleasing to the eye w/the corners being worn. Its grill cloth is quite nice. Its factory label is dated “GD” from April 1957. The initial 5E9 circuit is essentially a 5E3 Deluxe with the added on-board effect and a taller cabinet. Just a bit louder than the standard Deluxe, The Tremolux is the perfect amp for those gigs when the smaller tweeds just don’t quite have the power to cut it. The larger box also gives a bit more breadth, letting the bass-response develop more, avoiding the boomy flub sometimes associated with the smaller Deluxe cabinets. The tremolo is lush and deep and has an impressively wide range due to the trem circuit.¬†Overall she’s excellent original condition.
