The 3 x 10" Bandmaster is Back!The FENDER® '57 Bandmaster has been added to Fender's prestigious Custom Series Amplifiers. Using the classic 5E7 circuit, the Bandmaster boast 26 watt of all-tube tone through 3 x 10 alnico-magnet Jensen speakers. The Bandmaster's touch-sensitive overdrive tone is perfect for classic rock, country and blues styles. The unique trio of speakers delivers a full sound that punches through without being too woofy. Tweed tones never sounded as good as the Fender '57 Bandmaster.
Fender '57 Bandmaster Vintage Reissue At-a-Glance:
Hand-wired All-tube Circuitry
This all-tube combo amp has hand-wired circuitry features the famed 5E7 circuit, which puts 26 watts into a trio of 10" alnico-magnet speakers. Power comes from a pair of 6L6 output tubes and a 5AR4 rectifier. With this design, power amp compression or "sag" is more subtle than in many Fender tweed designs. The Bandmaster's preamp contains four high-gain 12AX7 tubes, three of which may be substituted with 12AY7s for the original '50s low-gain sound.The control panel details include normal and bright volumes, four inputs (two normal; two bright), treble, bass and presence knobs.
The '57 Bandmaster amplifier is the latest member of Fender's acclaimed Custom Series family. Its harmonically rich clean tones are great for vintage rock, blues and country; crank it up for fat, sophisticated distortion. The '57 Bandmaster's finger-joined solid pine cabinet resonates with a warm, woody tone. The amp is covered in genuine lacquered tweed fronted with vintage brown/gold grille cloth. Leather strap handle on top and fitted cover included.
Perfect Compliment for Strats and Teles
Keith Richards once said that Fender guitars sound their best through Fender amps, and this is one of the finest Fender amps you'll find. From the hand-wired circuitry to the tube complement, any guitar will sound fantastic through the '57 Bandmaster, but if you own a Strat® or a Tele®, you may not have realized the full potential of you axe if you haven't played through a Fender '57 Bandmaster.

Finally! Thank you Fender!
by Terry Moore from Houston, TXFor several years I've been looking for a hand-wired amp with 20-something watts and 10 inch speakers in a pine cabinet that sounded like a Fender... because Fender didn't make one. Not a new one any... read more [+]way—the rugged, reliable new kind you can take everywhere and work like a dog. The magnificent Vibro-King and Twin amps can be too powerful and the underpowered Deluxe too dirty for Tele and Strat players on a local club stage. The 26 watt amp is perfect for small to medium gigs and the 3 x 10" speakers bring in a clarity and spank not found in the other tweeds. A LOT of music I grew up with was made on Fenders like this. THANK YOU Fender for filling a very big gap. I can't wait! close [-]
