Back in the mid-'50s, the original FENDER® Deluxe was the gigging amp of choice for many guitarists, boasting enough volume to hold its own onstage. But as bands got louder and louder, guitarists turned up to compete, and they discovered the beauty that is a dimed Deluxe, and the sweet overdrive that came with it. Fender recaptures that magic with the '57 Deluxe head. While collectors still pay a mint for original Deluxe amps, you can get all that tone, feel, and vibe in Fender's '57 Deluxe amp head!

A classic brought forward to today
If you've listened to many records in the last 55 years or so, you've probably heard a vintage Deluxe in all its glory. At lower volumes, the tones are clean yet harmonically rich - great for rhythm playing or chicken picking. Push it hard, and you get a complex overdrive that cuts through the mix. It's this combination of tones that made vintage Deluxes such sought-after amps. But brought forward to today in head form, the Fender '57 Deluxe makes this classic tonebox accessible to everyone. Pair it up with the matching Fender Hot Rod Deluxe™ cabinet or your favorite cab.
Handwired and built for premium tones
Part of Fender's Custom Series, this all-tube amp packs premium components. Your signal is passed through handwired circuitry from front to back, including a pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes, a duo of 6V6 power tubes, and even a 5Y3GT tube rectifier. All of this handwired tube tone is wrapped in lacquered tweed for vintage-appropriate looks and vibe.
Great onstage or in the studio
Between its low wattage and range of tones, the Fender '57 Deluxe is incredibly versatile. The clean tones are great for everything from pop to country, and the natural compression that happens when you're pushing the Deluxe hard makes it a great recording amp.
