[NAMM] Genre-Specific G-DEC 3 Thirty Models
Fender’s G-DEC 3 Thirty practice amp is now available in three genre-specific FSR (Factory Special Run) versions tailor-made for blues, metal and country guitarists.
Additionally, thanks to a partnership with Hal Leonard Publishing Co., several songbooks are now available with G-DEC 3-friendly SD cards, with play-along backing tracks.
Like the standard 30-watt Blackface G-DEC 3 Thirty, all three new FSR models come equipped with 100 presets, backing tracks, computer connectivity and Fender FUSE software for custom configuration.
The G-DEC 3 Thirty BLUES is a vintage-style amp with a classic Fender look, blonde vinyl covering, oxblood grille cloth and chrome corners that evoke the early 1960s. Onboard backing track loops give a special nod to the blues, with other tracks in various vintage jazz, R&B and soul styles and 100 tone presets appropriate to these styles.
The G-DEC 3 Thirty METAL has black hardware and grille cloth and is covered in hardcore black-white-gray camo. It features onboard backing track loops by members of Hatebreed, Anthrax, Cannibal Corpse, Whitechapel, Sepultura, Bad Religion and others, plus a collection of drums-only metal loops, a few Southern rock tracks, and 100 tone presets for shredding.
The G-DEC 3 Thirty COUNTRY has a western “cowboy tooled” vinyl covering, wheat grille cloth and chrome corners. Its onboard backing track loops give a nod to classic and modern country, rockabilly, and Americana styles, with 100 tone presets by pickers Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, James Burton and more.
The SD cards feature instructional play-along tracks and amp presets, and are now packaged with Hal Leonard titles, including: Nirvana, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, ZZ Top and AC/DC; as well as genre-specific songbooks, like Country, Acoustic, Hard Rock and Hal Leonard Guitar Method – Book 1.
