Fender / Fender Pro Amp / 1957 / Amp
Fully original Fender Pro Amp from mid 1957!
The Fender Professional (shortened to Pro after 1947) debuted in 1946 and was aimed at players who needed more power than the original 1x10 Deluxe amp provided.
The 1957 Pro pictured has the specifications typical for the model that year, as listed in the ’57 Fender Catalog: “The Pro Amp features the solid-wood lock-jointed cabinet, covered in brown-and-white-striped airplane luggage linen. It features the top-mounted chrome-plated chassis with the following controls: bass, treble, and presence tone controls, two volume controls, four input jacks, ground switch, on-and-off switch, and stand-by switch. It employs a heavy duty 15” Jensen speaker and is capable of producing considerable power without distortion.”
Two 6L6G tubes provide about 26 watts of power. Interestingly, the tube chart inside the amp is marked with the earlier 5E5 designation (with one tone control), whereas the amp is clearly a 5E5-A model (with bass, treble, and presence).
This amp had an amazing sound and it’s so much more than the reissues …
