Fender have announced a new line of Eric Clapton Signature Amplifiers. The new line currently features three tweed models: the EC Vibro-Champ, the EC Tremolux, and the EC Twinolux. All three models are hand-made in Fender’s Corona, CA manufacturing plant.
The EC Vibro-Champ model is based on the late ’50s model Champ and puts out 5 watts of power. It has an 8-inch speaker and 6V6 output tubes. Also included is a power attenuator so you can adjust the output power.
The EC Tremolux model is based on the late ’50s Deluxe amps and puts out about 12 watts of power. It has a 12-inch speaker and 6V6 output tubes. With the Tremolux model, you can disconnect the internal speakers and use an external speaker cabinet. Like the Vibro-Champ, the Tremolux model also features a power attenuator.
The EC Twinolux model is based the late ’50s Twin amps and puts out about 40 watts of power. It has two 12-inch speakers and 6L6 output tubes. Like the other two models, the Twinolux features a power attenuator; additionally, you can turn off one speaker to lower the output volume further.
