*owned by studio ace; Patrick Leonard (Madonna, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams..) This was his go to studio amp for many years.
The Fender Deluxe 5e3 is one of the most desirable vintage amplifiers on the market today. The Deluxe was initially introduced in 1948 but went through some changes until 1955 when the 5e3 circuit was developed. The narrow panel version was produced from 1955-1960 and is also one of the most widely copied circuits. The Deluxe’s circuit, cabinet and speaker combine flawlessly together to produce nice driven cleans and gorgeous overdrive. Nothing like the natural drive from pair of saturated 6v6 tubes, a finger jointed pine cabinet and a low wattage speaker.
