Original Fender Bandmasters continue to be among the most sought after vintage amps there is, thanks to its combination of vintage aesthetics and sound.
Now Fender makes these rare amplifiers more accessible for modern players and made some necessary tweaks to meet the demands of modern guitarists.
The amp and speaker combination is voiced to have a warm and sensitive response.
The '57 Bandmaster is a flexible utility amp, with 2 channels for microphone and instrument and 4 total inputs (2 per channel).
Like the original, control is kept to minimum, with basic EQ for the instrument channel (Treble, Bass, Presence, Volume) and a simple volume knob for the microphone channel.
Finally the exterior of the amp is meant to be as durable and elegant as the original, it features a finger-joined solid pine cabinet covered covered with great looking Tweed.
Other embellishments include chicken-head knobs and a special deluxe fitted cover.
Fender wraps up the product information of the amp by saying: "The Bandmaster amp's harmonically rich clean tones are perfect for vintage rock, blues and country styles, and its naturally touch-sensitive overdrive tone sounds electrifying—especially when cranked up."
