From 1955 to 1957, Fender made what would become some of the last changes to its so-called tweed amplifier range, to arrive at the coveted narrow panel series that went on to become the template for so many other designs. The Bassman also changed from a 1x15 cabinet to a 4x10 in 1955, serving as the inspiration for another well-known amplification icon. However, despite the temporary fashion for big stacks and 100-watt tops, the small tweed Fender has remained indispensable, providing the tonal inspiration for countless gold albums and hit singles. Over the years, Fender has reissued both amps in various guises, but this year the company has chosen to push the boat out with a Summer NAMM debut of not one, but four Custom Shop tweed amps (also including the Custom 57 Pro and Twin), of which these two, the Champ and the Deluxe, are likely to be runaway hits.
