Pre-Owned Louis Electric LE58 2 x 12" Combo

Louis Electric LE58 2x12 Combo

 

The Louis Electric 40W or 80W LE58 is based on a 5F8-A Twin amp circuit. This amp was the first in the Louis Electric line. After this amp was built, Louis Rosano eventually heard that Danny Gatton was using the very same kind of amplifier and was able to reach out to him and have him try a Louis Electric Twinmaster. Eventually, Danny retired his Fender Twin amps and used the Louis Electric Twinmaster exclusively at larger venues.

The 40W and 80W Twinmaster provides a large, full-range sound. If you dont mind carrying around a 2?12 size amp, this is probably one of the best amplifiers in the Louis Electric Line.

The Twinmaster features a custom transformer, fixed bias system,2 xCelestion G12H 30Ws, Tungsol 5881s, three 12AX7 preamp tubes and 4 input jacks. The amp has two channels Bright and Normal. The channels can be bridged for maximum tonal sculpting. And, lurking on the underside of the chassis, a little Damping knob which adjusts the level of negative feedback which is an excellent feature to have because most amplifiers only offer fixed resistor which limits tone shaping.
