The classic American amplifiers of the ‘50s and ‘60s inspired us to create the, errrrr, American Classic series.
The Ceriatone 5F4 amplifier is based on the tweed-covered amplifier of the same designation. This amplifier was made in the ‘50s, and was available as a 2×10” combo. It’s worth mentioning, this was Mr. Fender’s favorite amp!
The 5F4 uses a single 5U4G rectifier with a pair of 6L6 tubes for around 20-35W, depending on your selection of output and rectifier tubes. The preamp is similar to a stripped down 5E8-A, but the power section softens the response and adds creaminess to the overdriven tones. The use of the paired 10” speakers lent a signature flavor to the sound, and we recommend pairing it with one for authentic 5F4 tones. Speaker configurations aside, you’ll find this amplifier is somewhat of a little brother to the legendary 5E8-A, with great cleans, creamy breakup, and all shades in between.
Like other Ceriatone amps, we have labored carefully to select the finest components to suit the design, and the 5F4 uses our specially designed custom transformers for superior reliability, frequency response, and feel.
