Modified from the Low Powered Tweed Twin design, the High Powered 5F8-A circuit was introduced in 1958, with production running to early 1960.

In order to achieve more headroom for the stage, a long-tailed pair phase inverter circuit was utilised along with four 5881 power valves, driving 80 watts of output into two Jensen P12N 12” AlNiCo speakers.
          
What this translates to is an amp born of that distinct raw-yet-creamy overdrive which defines the classic Tweed sound, yet has more openness and slightly less output stage compression than the Low version - meaning a more immediate and fast attack off the player’s picking hand.
          
Combine this with the signature forward punch of a pair of 12” AlNiCo’s, low end is tight and full, with crunchy midrange and sparkling brilliance in the high end. Housed inside an open-back select pine lacquered tweed cabinet, this amp just fills the room with stunningly rich and full Tweed tone that responds intimately with every inflection and nuance of the player's style.
         
This is THE amp to go for if you’re searching for a multidimensional clean platform for pedals, which can also dish out buckets of fantastically dirty rhythm and grind – just ask Keith Richards!
