Yes it does. IMO it didn't sound nearly as good in the lower mode, but it DID cut the power back like you'd expect. The speaker and cab sound really good and the quality of the amp really comes out when you play it at the full 12 watts and turn it up about half way, just before it breaks up too much. Pure creamy tone with bell like clarity and tight bottom end. Again, I was floored by it. Loved it. The tremolo in it also sounds so creamy.I thought it had power scaling, too.
Is the vibro champ tone similar to the tremolux, or is it completely different?Sorry for off topic - I have the Vibro Champ EC and it's amazing!
I had both at the same time to compare and although it was close I ended up going with the Fender. Both were great with my Tele, but the ec was better with humbuckers. While having just as pure a tone as the Vic, the Fender offered a use-able tone control and amazing tremolo.How did it compare to the Vicky? I've been considering one of those too.
It has a speed control.Only played for a short while with a Gretsch Electrojet (which I'm not familiar with on any amp)..It sounds ok, but the trem severely needs a speed AND depth control. The Trem was too limited.
Imo..Fender really could step it up. Hard to support a company past it's prime...
Found this thread on a search, no updates since July, just curious if you bought one? Also curious to know if anyone has done an A/B comparison to 5E3-based boutiques and 5E3 kits?Haven't heard much about the Fender EC Tremolux. Is it really much different than the 57 Tweed Deluxe RI? How does it rate with boutique 5E3s?
