Wampler Tweed '57 Overdrive

199.99

The Tweed '57 is intended to emulate early Fender “Tweed” amps such as the Bassman, Pro, and Bandmaster. Made between 1948 and 1960, they were designed alongside the birth of the electric guitar, and from a design standpoint, as archaic as amplifiers can be.

These amps also lived in a time where distortion was considered obscene and avoided. The early players of these amps who cranked these amps into distortion were abusing the very essence of a tube amp. It's easy to see why this classic overdrive tone is so often described as “natural” or “transparent”.

 

The Tweed '57 is perfect for those on-the-edge-of break up sounds that that sit on the top of your picking dynamics. At higher gains, it slowly turns to saggy, creamy lead tones. The EQ follows a typical Fender tone stack for even more authenticity. Based on the different channels of the Tweed amps, it also features several classic input modes: normal, bright, and linked.
