Description


The Texas Tremolo is Carl's take on the late 50's Fender Tweed Vibrolux.  The Texas Tremolo tones falls between the grind and responsiveness of the 5E3 Deluxe and the cleaner, clearer tweed sounds of the Super and Bassman.  It's 15W of and fixed bias with wonderful tweed cleans and growling throaty overdrive once pushed. The tremolo on board is a bias wiggle trem and deep and lush.    It's bound to please any player looking for great vintage tweed sound.
The Texas Tremolo has number of improvements over a stock 50's Tweed Vibrolux.  It's fitted with 12" speaker rather than 10" for fuller more band worthy performance.  A switch has been added in that allow you to switch the bright cap in and out of the circuit for more sounds.     The addition of a choke, a larger power transformer, adjustable bias, and improved construction ensure the amp is quiet, serviceable and amazing to play! 

Carl's Custom Amps offer the 1x12 combo with either Weber Alinco 12A125 or Eminence Legend 1258.  The Weber is authentic to the 50's sound with more compression and great breakup. The Eminence has more headroom, volume, and body and breaks up nicely too. NOS Tubes set are available upon request. Contact me for current pricing on them.
