Amp Kit Tweed Two-Twelve-40, 5E8 Style with ca. 40 watt power.

This Amp Kit is based on the legendary Fender Tweed Twin Low Power®

The Fender Tweed Twin Low Power® is a late-mid 1950s amp and featured  the double-rectifier power supply exaclty like the earlier Bassman 5E6 models.

Also known as two input tweed Bassman.

This amp has a much bolder tone compared to the later higher power models and fits wonderful for big and warm clean guitar tones or fat growl when pushed a bit.

This 5E8-A type amp got popular by west-coast guitar players like Junior Watson and Alex Schulz but also Eric Clapton has been seen playing the vintage original.

By the way, this is also one of the best amps we've ever heard for Blues-Harmonica Harp playing.

No kidding, no feedback issues!

No effects required, just a good High-Z mic and if you have your guts together then the tone of William Clark or Rod Piazza can be easily achieved.
