Another exciting one-owner vintage piece has arrived here at the shop!
This 1966 Fender Tremolux head and matching 2x10 cab was purchased new by its original owner in 1966 at EU Wurlitzer in Boston, who used it in his local Boston area band The Fragments through the remainder of the 60s. It's after that point that the amp was packed up and stored away until this year, where it found its way to us!
Known as one of the mid powered Blackface-era offerings from Fender during this period, the Tremolux shared much of its DNA with the Vibrolux Reverb and Bandmaster amplifiers, albeit without reverb. At 35 watts output via a pair of 6L6 power tubes, the tube-rectified Tremolux offers players a cleaner, more forgiving mid 60s Fender tone. Plugged into its original closed-back 2x10 cabinet with factory Oxford 10" speakers, the Tremolux remains bright and sparkly with nice focus and slightly more punch than 12" speakers a la the aforementioned Vibrolux.
The amplifier remains in absolutely fabulous condition, with tolex and grill cloth showing little to no wear throughout. It's been serviced by one of our local trusted amp techs, who replaced fatigued electrolytic and filter capacitors, upgraded the power cord to a 3 prong cable, and replaced a faulty control pot. Many of the tubes are original to the amp, specifically in the preamp section. It even includes its original brown "lamp cord" speaker cable, along with the original Victoria cabinet slipcover with the original band name vaguely stenciled over it. All transformers are original to the amp as well. It is missing the original tremolo footswitch, but that does not affect use of the tremolo.
