Does anyone make a good tweed Fender Twin plugin?

I'm playing a production of a broadway show from the 1950's and it's begging for tweed guitar tones. I see tons of tweed deluxe plugins, but this is more on the jazz side of things and calls for a fuller and cleaner tone. A high powered tweed twin would be perfect, but I can't seem to find one anywhere.

Anyone know of one?

Not a plugin, the Fractal AxeFx just added a model of Keith Urban's #1 1959 Tweed Twin.

It's in firmware 19.

Positive Grid BIAS Desktop has a tweed Bassman model. That would get you in the ballpark, especially with all the tweakability it offers. Pair it with a Deluxe or Twin cabinet/IR and you should be close.

Hmm... I'm sure the AxeFx model sounds good, but I don't think I'll pay for an entire AxeFx unit just for that.

I've already got something in the ballpark with the S-Gear Custom '57 and RedWirez 2x12. I was really hoping for an actual tweed twin amp. Guess I'll just have to make due

Try all the free plug ins you can , amplitube has some nice fenders and you can try before you buy, but also try the other major brands ( most have a trial time or period ) you might find what you need that way.

I can't testify to any one particular plugin, but bias, amplitube fender and just amplitube free ( in the room ) presets, can't remember if its twin or bassman sound fantastic.

If you're already using S-Gear, I would recommend adding a few of the Rosen Digital cab IRs, like the AC30, the Blues Deluxe, and maybe the Port City Wave or Budda Superdrive. Rosen has S-Gear specific formatted files as part of the IR download. Really great IRs without any weird resonances.

Cool, I'll check those out. I haven't done too much experimentation with IR's yet, but maybe this is a good reason to start!
