    Fender Performer 1000 - "small but great sound"

    01/12/12

    This is a 5 watt tube amp without any frills like tone or gain, just simply a power switch, volume knob, and a 1/4" standard guitar input. Any tone shaping can be done with effects equipment, but not in a loop, prior to the gain/volume stage. UTI…

    Fender Performer 650 - "Perfect when played loud"

    12/27/11

    Solid state amp with tube distortion channel. Actually, different from what is stated here (and that the model name wrongfully suggests), the amp is 80W RMS. 12 inch Fender speaker kicks loudly and can easily be used as PA to play in a medium-sized…

    Fender Performer 650 - "Small but beefy"

    09/16/11

    I won't mention the features again, which have been detailed by some colleagues before. UTILIZATION Personally, I love its simplicity and effectiveness Most renown amps (Vox, Marshall, Fender, etc.) always offer a simplicity that makes them effect…

    Fender Performer 650 - "It's ok"

    06/23/11

    This is one of those amps that just gets pasted up because it is really no different sounding than many of Fender's famous amps that people actually do know.This amp is really nothing to write home about as the tone is clean and sparkly as you would …

    Fender Performer 1000 - "Very nice hybrid!"

    01/02/11

    It's a hybrid amp (1 tube for the preamp and solid-state) The connections are more than enough for what I use it. You can use it zapping the preamps with a footswitch, it's awesome!!! Normally, it comes with a footswitch with 3 switches, 2 for dis…

    Fender Performer 1000 - Dish1's review

    07/25/08

    See other reviews where everything is detailed. Big power reserve, comprehensive connections (speaker, send return, direct line). Three channels, controls on the front panel, like on a Deluxe reverb or a Twin. Nice black color. The pots are a bit…

    Fender Performer 1000 - RickD's review

    07/07/08

    - What type of amplification (Tube,transistor,...)? This is hybrid: a tube for the distortion channel preamp, and transistors for the rest, i believe. - How much power is delivered? Too much! 100W RMS and the volume is unusable: turn it a tiny bit a…

    Fender Performer 1000 - J-ft's review

    01/14/07

    Nice big Fender performer 1000, mainly solid-state amp but with a tube for the preamp on the lead channel. According to Fender, it is rated at 120 watts, but I'd say its more like 200. This amp is a true bombshell. I have never dared crank it beyo…
