The Leister

'56 Fender Tweed Deluxe Re-creation with an
EL-84 kick!

$1295.00 + $50 shipping anywhere in the USA


This is a re-creation of  The Fender 1956 Tweed Deluxe with a decidedly British twist (a twist of lime(y)?<Grin>).  Using EL-84 power tubes (a 12 inch speaker and 5Y3 tube rectifier), this amp provides a taste of that Vox -like edge without sacrificing the sound you expect for the traditional Deluxe design. A little more aggressive, a little more attitude, but built with utmost reliability and sound quality to spare.

Built using top-shelf components,  proven point-to-point wiring techniques, and each is assembled and tested by hand.

This amplifier will sound terrific right out of the box and for decades to come.

Give it a listen:
(These sound files were produced by mic'ing the amp from 1' in front and running the mic through a Tascam Mixer into the computer and saving the sound file in a QuickTime or RealAudio small file format using Sound Studio or RealAudio Producer .  Believe me, the amp sounds *MUCH* better in person!)
