A milestone in Fender history! Fender have created their first ever series of artist signature guitar amplifiers, branded with the legendary name that we all know.

Show full description »

Eric Clapton, throughout his 6 decade musical career has been one of the most notable exponents of Fender products. Since Clapton made the switch to the Fender Stratocaster in ‘69, he never looked back and come 1988, Fender had honoured him with the introduction of the Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster.

There are three different models in the Fender EC Series, the Twinolux, Tremolux and the smallest amp of the series, the Vibro Champ. All of the tweed EC amps are hand built in the US and are based around the specific specifications of Clapton.

The three EC series amplifiers are rather fascinating variations of their original late ‘50s ancestors, the ’57 Twin, ’57 Deluxe and the ’57 Champ and they all feature that distinctive tweed amp tone, cherished by Clapton himself.

“Each produces a full-bodied voice that is as pure and authentic as Clapton’s own, with distinctively modified electronics and elegantly classic styling that evokes his musical persona and much of his greatest work.”

The Fender EC series amps feature a ‘50s era output tube bias tremolo which produces the throbbing pulse that adds “body” to your sound. Among other premium features, the EC amps have a switchable power attenuator which reduces speaker output, so you don’t have to crank your volume all the way up to get that fully rounded sound.

The Eric Clapton signature Fender amp series simply delivers that ultimate classic tweed amp tone that attracted the guitar legend to Fender tweed amplifiers in the first place.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
