The Tweed 15c is true to the 5C3 deluxe produced between 1953-55. It uses two 6SC7 octal preamp valves for a richer, fatter tone.
While not as well known as the later 5E3 Deluxe (Tweed 15), The 5C3 is still one of the Jewels in the mid-50's Fender lineup, played by many session players in the studio, on the stage and even in the bedroom.

If like me, you love the sound of vintage tweed amplifiers and want something that's incredibly touch responsive with a complex, dynamic tone then look no further than the Tweed 15c.

Perfect for any guitar but Tele, Strat and Lap Steel players will be blown away by this amp. Works great for blues harp too.

I use very high quality components, sourced from UK companies if possible.
I do make a few small modifications to the original design, mainly an improved grounding scheme along with a few tweaks to make it more durable/reliable.

I stand behind every amplifier I make. Every Rift amplifier is guaranteed against defects in craftsmanship and components (excluding certain items) for the life of the amplifier (or my life, which ever ends first) as long as it remains in possession of the original owner.

Second hand amplifiers are not supported by the warranty.

Any user modifications or external modifications even by a qualified technician,
abuse and damage beyond normal wear and tear will void this warranty.
