I posted here a while ago about the prospect of buying a 57 Tremolux in a reproduction cabinet, and ended up pulling the trigger. That thread is here: https://www.tdpri.com/threads/57-tremolux.967083/ The amp was not in my town, and I got a good friend to go and check it out and ship it to me. I could tell from the pics I had seen that the guts were original except for the death cap, which had been removed, and the bias cap which had been replaced, likely due to failure. So as soon as I received it, I took it to my tech for a 'restoration' and to make it playable. I finally got the amp back last week and have just had the time now to post about it. The amp itself is pretty special. A 1957 Fender Tremolux, based on serial number and the pots, which date to the 48th week of 1956. The circuit (5E9-A) was all original, and untouched except for the changes noted above (no death cap, one cap changed). My tech changed the filter caps and the other electrolytics, but (without asking me) he stuffed the old ones, so it retained the look of an original 50's Fender. The power cable was 2 prong, and on it's last legs, so he replaced that as well. The old, non-original power tubes needed changing as well. Transformers are original. The guy I bought it from said the cabinet had been mangled in to some sort of head when he bought it, and I believe he threw out the remnants. It came to me in a reproduction Armadillo Amp Works cabinet. The cabinet is really nice, the only downside to it is that it is the same size as a tweed Deluxe. The Tremolux apparently came in this size cab during 1955 only, and after that the cab was the size of a tweed Pro (a couple inches wider and taller). So not EXACTLY period correct... The speaker is a Weber alnico hemp cone. Likely a 12A125H? Not too sure. Sounds good though. I recorded some quick demos of the amps sounds for those interested.
