Amps-of-the-Month: In Search of Eric Clapton
Fender Eric Clapton Signature Ec Twinolux 40W 2X12 Hand-Wired Tube Guitar Combo Amp
In an historic collaboration, Fender introduces its first artist signature amplifiers-EC Series amps bearing the name of legendary guitarist Eric Clapton. Built to the exacting specifications of Clapton himself, the EC Twinolux is a fascinating variation on the tweed '57 Twin amp and Fender's answer to his call for a special model with several distinctive features.
Handmade in the United States with '50s-era output tube bias tremolo (which produced a more throbbing pulse than later Fender tremolo circuits) and a switchable power attenuator (reduces speaker output and can disable one speaker for even lower output), it presents the pinnacle of personally inspired amp tone for stage and studio alike and is a must for Clapton fans and guitarists who want the ultimate in tube performance.
Features include hand-wired all-tube circuitry on eyelet board with premium components; circuit based on late-'50s Fender Twin amp model 5E8-A (about 40 watts); single channel with high-gain and low-gain inputs; tremolo with speed and intensity controls (can be selected with included footswitch); dual Special Design 12" Weber speakers (by Eminence) with alnico magnets for dynamic, sensitive response; two Groove Tubes 6L6GE output tubes, four 12AX7 preamp tubes and two 5U4 rectifier tubes; Mercury Magnetics custom transformers; finger-joined solid pine enclosure for warm, resonant tone; lacquered tweed covering with vintage-style brown/gold grille cloth and leather strap handle.

Marshall 1962 Bluesbreaker Combo Amp
Used by Eric Clapton during his stint with Mayall's Bluesbreakers and famously on the Beano sessions. With 30W output and 2x12 speakers, it produces a gutsy bass and vibrant top, coupled with an overall natural warmth. The valve rectification output stage, pioneered by Marshall in the early 1960s, is responsible for helping achieve the famed compression and sustain exhibited uniquely by both the JTM45 and 1962.
Though somewhat tonally similar to a JTM45, the 1962 combo is loaded with 2 Celestion Greenback 25W speakers and also comes with a footswitchable tremolo effect.If you're looking for that sensuous, creamy early Clapton sound, we guarantee that you'll find it in this beautifully reissued combo. The natural tone and overdrive of the 1962 will quickly become a fundamental ingredient in your overall sound.
