Taking you back to the glory days of drive ins and milkshakes come the 1953 Fender Pro 5B5 profile. This original 50's Fender chassis was restored back to factory specs by the team at British Audio for authentic sounds straight from the imagination of Leo Fender and his team. Add in a WGS G15-A for a flavorful amount of low mids coupled with the sparkling high end synonomous with the name Fender.
At first glance, the "Dirty" profile may bring visions of gritty garage rock tones. But don't be fooled, this surprisingly versitile profile will inspire everything fromm chickin' pickin' to gritty blues-rock. This profile captures the unique feel of the lesser used 15" speaker pushed to it's limit.
While this Fender Pro was not fitted with reverb from the factory, like all classic Fender designs, a lush spring reverb really brings the amp to life. Dial up the "Washy" profile for ambient slaps from the Kempers onboard reverbs carefully chosen to compliment the distinctive tweed sound of the era.
The 5B5 circuit has a lively volume knob that introduces subtle distoriton before the amp reaches standard playing levels. Utilizing classic studio recording techniques, we managed to bring out crystal clear cleans without destroying the feel of the amp. Our "Clean" profile delivers that classic Fender sparkle with a tweed twist.
Inspired by Nashville's famous Honky Tonks, the "Twang" profile exudes classic country style. Whether you are playing Johnny Cash or Eric Church, the "Twang" profile is sure to light up your stage with the sounds of country and western.
Hailing from the edge of fuzz comes a profile you may not expect from a 50's fender. Profiled with a boutique "green" overdrive pushing the front end, the "Driven" profile brings heightened overtones while maintaining tight and precise lows. This sound is a favorite choice for southern rock and Texas blues, perfect for screaming licks and powerful rhythms.
The "Dist Lead" profile picks up where "Driven" leaves off, truly opening up the 5B5 to it's full range and leaving nothing on the table. Profiled with a certain legendary distortion pedal maxing out preamp gain, single notes fill the room and chords explode to life. Experience everything a tweed Fender amp has to give with the "Dist Lead" Profile.
With subtle breakup and plenty of warmth, the "Creamy" profile personifies that classic Fender sound. Fans of "Plug-and-Play" style amplifiers will find this one approachable and versatile, offering a variety of dynamic levels based on pick attack.
For vintage tweed tone with a little extra presence look no further than the "Bright" profile. Perfect for bringing sparkle to warmer instruments, or more definition for those stand out moments. You are sure to love this one!
