Fender ’57 Mini Twin Vintage Tweed Amp Review

The Fender Mini ’57 Twin is a great way to take that vintage tweed look with you wherever you go. Measuring at just 2.8 x 9 x 8 inches and weighing under 2 lbs, this little guy is made to grab and go.

The Fender Mini ’57 Twin Amp captures the vintage 50’s look with its tweed covering, brown grille and miniature chicken head knobs. The Fender Mini ’57 Twin is a truly portable, battery-powered amp that’s great for practice, or just jamming in a bedroom, office or hotel room.


Whether you want to practice at night without waking the wife/kids/neighbors, or just want to grab an amp and go when you have a few extra minutes, the Fender Mini ’57 Twin is a great choice. It’s also made of wood, and not plastic like most other portable amps.
