Fender’s EC Series guitar amplifiers—the EC Twinolux, EC Tremolux, and EC Vibro-Champ are specific variations based on late-’50s tweed amps favored by Clapton for specific sounds at various points throughout his career. All are handmade in the U.S. with mods specified by Clapton, including a ’50s-era output-tube-bias tremolo circuit and a switchable power attenuator.
The 2×12” EC Twinolux, 1×12” EC Tremolux and 1×8” EC Vibro-Champ are single-channel amps with high-gain and low-gain inputs, hand-wired all-tube circuitry on eyelet boards with premium components, custom transformers, and premium tubes and speakers. The EC Tremolux has fixed bias for increased headroom and an internal speaker disconnect that allows use of an external 8-ohm speaker enclosure. The EC Vibro-Champ has an internal speaker disconnect that allows use of an external 4-ohm speaker enclosure, and a footswitch jack for an optional tremolo footswitch.
All three have finger-joined solid pine enclosures, and each evokes Fender’s ’50s era with lacquered tweed covering, vintage-style brown/gold grille cloth and a leather handle. Each bears an EC Series badge and Clapton’s signature on the control panel. For more, visit fender.com.
