Fender Tweed Deluxe

20 June 2009

The Tweed Deluxe (5E3) is one of Fender’s classic amps. The Tweed Deluxe’s simple circuit packaged with ergonomic cabinet design have made it very popular over it’s 60+ year life time.

The Tweed Deluxe’s simple design has also made it a popular amp to build among hobbyists. Though simple in design the Tweed Deluxe is not simple sounding or lacking in tone. I find often the simplest amps are the best sounding ones. With less circuitry between your guitar and the speaker there is less processing/manipulation done to your guitar signal and as a result your tone is richer and more pleasing sounding (read better!).
