We’ll admit it: Here at Aardvark, we’re known to dream about tweed amps at night. In all honesty, we’ve never met a properly set up tweed Fender amp that we didn’t love. So when we saw this beauty at a recent vintage guitar show, we knew we had to have it. We’ve had the opportunity to spend time with two ’59 Tremoluxes during the past couple of years. They both had the tone, no doubt about it, with this one being all-original and in better overall condition. If you’re a Tonequest Report reader, you know that there’s something about the Tremolux’s large cabinet (the same size as the 1x15 tweed pro) that makes this model sound bigger than an amp with a single twelve-inch speaker has a right to sound. We’ve been blown away by the results each time we've plugged a different guitar into this baby: ’60 Les Paul Junior, ’58 Strat, ’62 ES-345, and a Tele or two. It seems this amp can do no wrong, delivering big clean sounds, crunchy power chords, and creamy lead tones—with the rare the ability to ride between the wide range of available tones by simply using the volume knob on the guitar. Add some of the most mouth-watering tremolo we’ve ever heard, and you have one of the best-sounding 20 watt amps we’ve ever offered. The amp has been recently serviced and given a fresh set of filter capacitors. At the same time, the failure-prone selenium rectifier in the bias supply was replaced by a modern diode and a trim pot that allows fine tuning of the bias for the NOS Sylvania output tubes. Original Jensen P12Q speaker has the original cone with no issues. Well, apparently there are others who feel the same way about these tweed titans--this one sold within minutes of being listed on our site. However, we have a lead on another Fender tweed amp in similar condition. Check back soon. SOLD
