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 boasts 26 watts 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 have never sounded as good as they do with the Fender '57 Bandmaster.

Fender '57 Bandmaster Vintage Reissue At a Glance:
  • Handwired all-tube circuitry
  • Sought-after tone
  • Perfect complement for Strats and Teles
Handwired all-tube circuitry

This all-tube combo amp has handwired circuitry and 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 three 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 and two bright), treble, bass, and presence knobs.

Sought-after tone

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, and you can 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 and fronted with vintage brown/gold grille cloth. A leather strap handle on top and a fitted cover are included.

Perfect complement 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 handwired circuitry to the tube complement, any guitar will sound fantastic through the '57 Bandmaster. 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.
