    For all your tweed needs, how about this 1959 Tremolux?

    Introduced in 1955, this was Fender’s first amp to feature Tremolo and with a 15 watt output was the loudest of the small box combos.

    This is how you want your tweed amp to look isn’t it? Roadworn, dirty and still up for the fight after 60 years, this is by no means a museum piece. The tweed covering has worn in the places you’d expect though there isn’t excessive damage or any signs of over zealous repair. The grill cloth is in good shape with only maybe some very light damage that hasn’t broken through. The original handle too is still present, always a welcome sight.

    The faceplate is worn though you can still make out the decals.

    The amp has had a recent service (May 2022)  by Berkshire Amplifier repairs. Capacitors have been replaced with high quality replacements. The originals are included with the amp. A vintage step down transformer is included to facilitate 230v operation. This means that the original 2 pin power cable is no longer present though from a health and safety perspective this isn’t a bad thing as the amp is now earthed properly. New valves have been fitted and biased.

    The original Jensen speaker is still fitted and yes, it does work great.

    This is a gorgeous sounding amp. The Tremolux differed from the Deluxe by way of improved headroom and as such yields a tone that is both rich and more defined than its brother. Its still unmistakably tweed in nature. The tremolo circuit is the icing on the cake with the 15 watt output making it the perfect foil in the studio or at home.

    An instant hit here at ATB Guitars, if you’re looking for some Fender mojo in your arsenal then look no further.
