Product Description

The Fender '57 Deluxe Combo Amp is a 12W hand-wired tube amplifier with a 12" speaker. Super cool and timeless, the lower settings of the "chicken head" volume control result in harmonically rich clean sound perfect for authentic vintage rock, blues, and country playing; when cranked up, the Deluxe amp's fat, compressed, wildly distorted tone is not only inspiring, but just plain fun. It also records easily, thanks to all that natural compression. American design, American made! Guitarists who want a moderately powered tube amp for home, studio, or small gigs will fall in love with the '57 Deluxe; tube amp enthusiasts who appreciate the unique qualities of hand-wired, hand-built models and Fender fans & collectors will consider the '57 Deluxe a must-have! The original Fender Deluxe amp of the 1950s was a medium-powered unit designed to let guitarists "hold their own" in a small group. As blues, Western, and rockabilly bands began getting louder and wilder, the overdriven tone of a cranked-up Deluxe found its way onto countless smokin' hot live and recorded performances. Over the past five decades, from Memphis to Liverpool to Texas, players of every conceivable style have employed this awesome tone machine for its unmistakable warm, rich tube tone. Original late '50s hand-wired 12W 5E3 circuit is one of the most touch-sensitive, dynamic amp sounds of all time; manageable volume level for studio or small venue; natural compression adds sustain, even at clean settings. Solid pine cabinet gives the tone a warm, natural wood resonance. Groove Tubes 12AX7 preamp tubes provide sensitive, higher-gain tone; user may install a 12AY7 for the original lower-gain sound, if desired. Jensen P-12Q Alnico-magnet speaker is the same model as used in many of the originals; sounds nice and sparkly clean, then "barks" when you hit it hard.

These decks are the same as every other Technics model with a modified Pitch fader, improved tone arm, and custom paint job. I own 2 of these to pay my respect to the grand master him self. They do look out standing and sound I credible depending on what cartridge your have. I would say buy this product while you still can and pay the cost if y have it. This is Reid V.i.P. Brown with another honest review. Hope it helped a little bit. The name Technics speaks for itself.

Well, what can I say...
This turntable is famous for it's popularity among vinyl DJ. (I can not give you source for my argument/claim... sorry... can't be proven )

Instead of buying this for DJ purposes, I bought this for listening purposes.

Although for some people that this turntable performs very well, you can actually boost this turntable audio performance to produce more "desirable" sound for audiophile purposes.

If you found that this turntable is good enough for you, don't ask me to do some modification to your turntable.
I would be happy to help you to modify your technics turntable.

Please don't use my statement to sue the company for whatever reason.
thank you.
