"The Deluxe was one of the first amplifiers Leo Fender produced in his own name. The wide panel tweed variant was produced from 1952/3 to 1954. Early models (5B#, 5C3) use 6SC7 pre-amp tubes. Later (some 5D3 models) they were replaced by the miniature 12AX7 tubes still used today. The Deluxe is a low output amp, prone to distorting at comparatively low levels, which makes it excellent for recording or playing through a PA.
This Fender Tweed Deluxe just had it's only tune up ever
It had 4 caps replaced. The 2 prong original power lead is now a safe grounded 3 prong...., and the carrying handle is a Amish made Exact 1950's spec quality leather handle. All amps will need a cap job in their life time. Sorry the 2 prong cord is unsafe and made the amp not perform to it's potential as no ground. I decided to go with a perfect re make leather handle as You don't want to have this Museum Collector Grade Tweed crash to the ground while carrying it.. do ya...:)
The Original speaker is SOLID. So Creamy sounding. Amp breaks up SO GREAT when Vol is on about 5.. I'm talking BELL TONE, Sparkle City! Then Some!
Comes with Original cover in great shape...
