Fender Mini ’57 Twin-Amp
|Click on each amp above to jump to that page.
The Mini Twin-Amp definitely makes the best
first impression. It’s one of our bigger micros, and
features wood construction and authentic tweed.
It has the same controls and features as the Mini
Deluxe (chickenhead knobs for Volume, Tone,
Drive and On/Off; 1/4" Input and Headphone
Out jacks and AC power jack), but adds a second
2" speaker to handle its single-watt output.
The leather handle is a nice upgrade from the
Deluxe’s plastic one, and is long enough to actually
carry the amp around comfortably.
The dry cleans here are more “amp”-like than
the other micros, with some sponginess and a
decent ring. It’s got similar attack characteristics
to its larger brethren. Not quite cranked, the
overdrive is juicy and more open-sounding, less
restricted to the mids, with a crunch that’s fairly
well controlled by the guitar’s volume. Dimed,
it rocks; hit a chord and listen to it oscillate into
harmonic feedback—like a tiny howl.
