The Perfect Gift for a Fender Nut
Know someone who lives and breathes vintage Fender gear? Perhaps they even have the Mini '57 Twin's full-sized big brother--lucky them.
No doubt they'll get a kick out of the Mini '57, with its true-to-form tweed covering and brown grille. The controls even boast miniature "chicken head" knobs--the Mini '57 Twin-Amp truly captures the vibe of '50s era Fender.
Great for Practice
Maybe you are that Fender nut. Or maybe you're just looking for an ultra-portable practice solution.
The Mini '57 Twin-Amp gives you one Watt of Fender sound through a 2-inch speaker. Dial it in to your liking with tone, volume and distortion controls.
Mini amps are not meant to be played at loud volumes
Battery or AC Powered
Throw in a 9-volt and take this little amp anywhere. With the additional headphone socket you might even get away with a little practice in the jury box.
If you're staying in one spot for awhile, save a battery and use an AC adapter (not included).

Inside the box, the speaker is held onto the front by a few cheap metal clips screwed into the plastic. These screws are not properly placed so if you move this unit around at all you will eventually break the speaker free and it'll beat around the inside with 4 sharp metal screws stuck to the magnet on the speaker. Beautiful, right? It hurts the sound quality when the speaker is rattling around loosely. It's difficult to reattach the speaker, because the screws broke off the plastic they were embedded into. You'd have to glue it in place since the screws won't hold.
The rest of the unit? Oy. There are loose wires covered in hot glue trying to make sure the loose screws won't short something. If I didn't know any better I'd think this was a 1980s Chinese bodge job trying to rip off a real American brand. A few months later, and miniscule movements of the cords cause cracking and popping because the innards are working loose.
I'm tossing this unit and upgrading to something that's built correctly inside. If you really need a dirt-cheap unit, get someone who knows what they're doing to crack it open and cover the innards with more hot glue to hold everything in place- especially the speaker.
This little guy is small, a lot smaller than I expected with two 2" speakers. It also looks adorable, not a phrase a guitarist would want to hear about his or her gear, but there is no other way to describe it. Its tweed exterior, chickenhead knobs and small size make it look like a precocious baby brother to the '57 Twin and I really like the way it looks. Its cute with a cool, retro feel given off by the quality of the tweed covering and the leather handle.
In terms of sound and volume, its got a lot of neat tricks. With the gain at zero and the volume set all the way to 12, it retains a remarkably clean sound, but its a bit weak volume wise. My Danelectro Honeytone, which has a similar 1w output, is louder with the gain turned down but it breaks up into OD at full volume so it isn't as clean as the Fender at full volume. With the gain and volume set to 12, the amp gives and impressive, overdriven sound, that in my opinion, stands quite well along side its bigger brother. It has a sweet, crunchy, warm sound but its not what you'd use for death metal.
I have a affinity for small mini amps and I really think this Fender is worth a look.
The Minis I have:
Fender MIni "57 Twin
Orange CR3 Micro Crush Pix
Vox Amplug AC30 w/ 0.7 Amplug Cabinet
Nowhere near the sound quality or usefullness of something like the Fly3 but it looks cool and if you have gift cards or something then it's a cool collectors item that puts out a decent Tweed sound.
