Fender Custom Shop Tweed Twin Amp (1957 Tweed Reissue)

This amp too loud for my application( small-med clubs)...love the tone though

What will give me the same tone...should be a fender ....but a step down or so in volume

My Victoria Split Front Super (Model 35210-T)-35 watts (Pentode/Triode toggle in the back for reduced power), lightweight pine cab, real tweed-trade for your Twin-PM me.

He's right. That would give you a very, very similar tone, but just not as loud. Both are fantastic amps, and it would be a fair trade.

Any clone of the tweed era circuits 5E7 Bandmaster 3x10", 5F4 Super 2x10", 5E5A Pro 1x15". They're pretty much the same circuit except for they don't have the dual 5U4G rectifiers.

I own both & the deluxe will give you a bit of a different tone, they are not the same. I play small-med clubs & use the twin, try it with a rectifier tube pulled, that worked for me. It's still loud but it is what it is, for that tone.

By the way, I use an EC strat with the midboost to push the amp for solos & for heavier songs. If you're using a regular guitar, a clean boost or a mild overdrive with the gain down low to push the amp may help as well. That's if you are looking for the overdrive, if not then no boost required, it will stay fairly clean at small club levels (a little hairy though).
