The Louis Electric 40 or 80 watt LE58 Tweed Twinmaster 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 reach out him and have him a Louis Electric Twinmaster. Eventually Danny retired his Fender Twin amps and used the Louis Electric Twinmaster exclusively at larger venues.
The 40 or 80 watt Twinmaster provides a large, full-range sound. This amp has a tight. If you don't mind carrying around a 2x12 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-Weber AlNiCo Classics, 2 or 4 - 6L6's, 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 chasis, 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.
