Speaker is a 1 X 12." Jensen C12Q "Ceramic" or available P12Q "Alnico"

Our 5E3 CLASSIC TWEED DELUXE is based upon the original Fender, Model 5E3.  The Tweed Deluxe started in 1947 with five tubes and an output of approximately 10 watts.  The '47 version and was considered the top model in Fender's single speaker line amplifier.  In 1955 the Deluxe was changed to two inputs per channel, with one tone control.  The 12AY7 input was changed to a self-biasing tube.  Equally important, the phase inverter (driver) was changed to a cathodyne phase inverter (driving the output tube) and output was now raised to 20-watts with a duet of 6V6's.  This 1955 Classic Tweed Deluxe is the ultimate mid wattage tone machine.

We have increased the power supply filtering to virtually eliminate hum and tighten up the lower register.  As a Cathode-Biased amp, this Deluxe is extremely finger responsive and operates in a similar fashion as Self-Biased, Class-A amp.  We use a "period correct" Jensen C12Q or P12Q speaker.  This model is a milestone amplifier that was the basis of the Tremolux model, the first amp from Fender with on-board effects.

The Tweed Deluxe is hand built using a special GLASS EPOXY Board with each component hand soldered one component at a time.  Filtering is accomplished with F&T German electrolytic capacitors.  The tone caps are special, SOZO "Re-issued, BLUE ASTRON" tone/coupling capacitors.  These caps take the signal path and produce the closest possible tone that existed with the original Blue Astrons from the mid '50s.   The Glass Epoxy board is raised above the chassis to eliminate vibration and allow air flow to surround the components. This amp produces usable clean headroom and compresses at very reasonable volume levels.  As with all FireBelly amplifiers the classic Tweed Deluxe is Dripping with Tone!
