57 Deluxe 5E3 circuit!  A serious tone monster, This amp was hand wired , Classictone  transformers, JJ 5Y3 Rectifier, JJ matched 6V6s, JJ 12AX7 and a 12AY7 tube.  Filter caps are F&T while the Tone caps are OrangeDrops, and carbon comp resistors.  This head also has a Feedback mod built in making this Amp 3 amps in one, one setting is stock 5E3, the second turns feedback off, and the third is a JTM style negative feedback making the amp more pedal friendly and completely transforming the amp.  Rectifier switch allows you to bypass the 5Y3 rectifier and run the amp with a solid state rectifier giving the amp yet another tone option.  This head has an 8" Jensen speaker installed, plug in an extension cab and it will automatically switch turning off the 8".  The Jensen can handle all the Deluxe circuit has to offer and makes it a super small combo to move around or a great practice speaker! When your ready to plug into a speaker cab you can select 4/8/16 ohm outputs. Cabinet is built with void free pine and constructed with full dovetail joints, Amber'd tweed wraps it up.  Great price on a great amp, pair with your favorite speaker and experience 15 watts of tweed awesomeness!!
