Fullerton Jump (1958 Fender® 5C3 Tweed Deluxe (jumped channels))

Fullerton Jump, the Helix model of a 1958 Fender® 5C3 Tweed Deluxe (jumped channels)

This model is based on jumping (combining) the regular and bright input channels of the Fender 5C3 Tweed Deluxe amp.

The Deluxe was one of the first amplifiers Leo Fender produced in his own name. The wide panel tweed variant was produced from 1952/3 to 1954. Early models (5B#, 5C3) use 6SC7 pre-amp tubes. Later (some 5D3 models) they were replaced by the miniature 12AX7 tubes still used today. The Deluxe is a low output amp, prone to distorting at comparatively low levels, which makes it excellent for recording or playing through a PA.

ZZ Top - La Grange

OK - you're gonna start up this patch and hit a big open A chord at full volume, and it's gonna sound like crap. Read on...This patch is all about your guitar's volume pot. To play the intro, get your volume super low. Then turn it a bit to play rhythm, and let it crank for the solos. I suggest a single coil or filtertron pickup, but humbuckers can do the job too. Billy Gibbons uses extremely light guitar strings and that's part of the sound too.

Try this tone with a strat, and roll back on your volume just a bit. Sounds nice.

Mary Jane's Last Dance

This is a lightly edited mod of johnnyrauker's patch on CustomTone, found while looking for good uses of the Alpaca Rouge overdrive. Terrific sounding patch, nails the tones of Tom Petty and Mike Campbell. Experiment with different guitars for alternate tones.
