Fender Tremolux Amplifier Head with 2×10 Cabinet Blonde 1964


The Fender Tremolux amp was built for 11 years, from 1955 to 1966. In 1960, Fender revamped its line, increasing power output, and several higher-output models were split into two pieces, head and cabinet. These new versions also sported a Tolex covering instead of Tweed. Originally there were three colour variations offered – blonde, white and oxblood, with ‘brownface’ control panels with white knobs. In 1964 the standard changed to black tolex. The control panels also shifted in late 1963 to ‘blackface’, with new black tapered knobs.

Here we are looking at a Fender Tremolux in Blonde tolex and wheat-coloured grillecloth. The date codes printed on the tube placement chart inside the amp head are NE, indicating 1964 and May production. The amp is paired with its original 2×10 inch speaker cabinet. Both original speakers are included, but one will require refurbishing for reuse. It has been removed from the cabinet and a suitable replacement installed. The amp is physically in good condition, with a small tear in the speaker cabinet grillecloth. The head has its extending clamps, and the cabinet has its tilt-back legs, but the original head to cabinet lock-down bolts are missing.

The Fender Tremolux at this point was tubed with a 12AT7, 12AX7, two 7025s, a GX34 rectifier and two 6L6GC power tubes. Power output is 35 watts, like the related Vibrolux.
