Our TWEED1955SE series is loosely based upon the original 1955, Princeton® 5F2A "Tweed" amplifier. This amp uses a dual-triode 12AX7 pre-amp tube with a single ended, Class-A, 6V6GT power amp running approximately 4-6 watts output into a "period correct", 10" vintage Jensen AlNiCo P10R. This small, but mighty tone machine has two inputs and straight forward controls of Volume and Tone. Vintage "chicken-head" knobs are on the deck. Our cab is constructed of solid finger jointed pine. Our "Tweed" is covered in 1950's style "luggage Tweed" with an Oxblood grill. As with all special edition FireBelly amplifiers, the "Tweed" is hand built using a vintage fiber tag board. Filtering is accomplished with Sprague Atom electrolytic capacitors. The tone caps are Orange Drop coupling capacitors and silver micas. This amp produces natural break-up and compression at reasonable volume levels. Because a tube rectifier is used, finger sensitive "sag" is also available. This Tweed beauty has usable clean headroom, and can be coaxed from blues and jazz to crunch and rock 'n roll, quite easily. Tubes are hand selected and include a 5Y3GT rectifier, 12AX7 pre-amp and a reissued Tung-Sol 6V6GT or JJ 6V6GT. This TWEED is Dripping with Tone!
