The original Fender Deluxe™ of the 1950s was a medium-powered amp designed to let guitarists hold their own in small groups. As blues, western and rockabilly bands got louder and wilder, the overdriven tone of the cranked-up Deluxe found its way into countless smoking hot live performances and recordings sessions.
Over the past five decades, from Memphis, Tenn., and Austin, Texas, to Liverpool and Los Angeles and just about everywhere else, too, players of every style have prized the Deluxe for its unmistakably warm and rich tube tone. Originals are getting hard to find and continue to appreciate in the vintage collector’s market, but players who enjoy the original tone, feel, and vibe will love the ’57 Deluxe. As part of Fender’s prestigious Custom series of all-tube amps with hand-wired circuitry and premium components, the ’57 Deluxe is also available in head form so you can use your favorite cabinet with it.
Lower settings of the “chicken head” volume control result in harmonically rich clean tones perfect for authentic vintage rock, blues and country. Cranked up, the Deluxe’s thick and wildly distorted tone is not only inspiring, but also just plain fun. And with all that that natural compression, it’s a great recording amp, too.
