This is a classic tube amp made by Fender. I don't know if they still make these, the one that I used is from the 60s. This is really a fantastic, classic tube amp. There are two channels, normal, and vibrato. There are two inputs for each channel. The amp has 45 watts of power and runs to 2 10" speakers. The normal channel has three knobs (Volume, Treble, and Bass), and the Vibrato channel has the same controls, plus speed and intensity. There's also a master presence control. There's a footswitch for the vibrato.
Getting a good sound with this amp is pretty easy. There's not a whole lot of tonal options at your disposal here. However, that's not really a problem as every tone you dial in tends to be incredible. It's low wattage, so it doesn't get too loud . However, assuming you aren't playing a huge venue anytime soon, it'll be loud enough for anything you need. Plus, it'll break up at just the right volume for a smaller club.
This is quite simply one of the best tube amps I've found. With a straight, dry signal, this is perfect for 50s and 60s rock (assuming you crank it), blues, R&B, Jazz, and country. All of these genres will sound fine, depending of course upon the guitar and the player. There isn't an overdrive channel or anything, so anything harder or heavier than the straight signal is going to require pedals. Luckily, it tends to still sound awesome. I've used fuzz, reverb, delay, overdrive, and a few other pedals with it, and I've usually had fantastic results (depending mostly on the quality of the pedal in general). The vibrato sound is really awesome too. The natural amp vibrato is really cool on most Fender amps, and this one is no exception.
This is a really great amp. Simple, no frills, no extra features, just solid tone all around. I'd say this is expensive enough that it's probably not worth it unless you either own a studio, or are a top-notch professional. Most other people will be able to get by with lesser gear. However, this really is a fantastic amp. Anybody would certainly sound great with this, so if you can find/afford one, go for it!

All tube baby ...
I think power 50W
1 between active and passive 1
Date of 1990's
Potentiomtre The clean channel can be shot to the rear for a more crystalline sound. Similarly the other 2 "gain 1" and "gain 2". When no footswitch, the amp is directly on the clean channel when you shoot "a gain" on switches to channel "gain 1", like the "gain 2". It's complicated but it trsbte parat, nothing mchant.
The sound is gnial. On the clean channel, it transpires knob down low! Try it with a chorus and a nice rverb! But the volume shows trs fast! I just put on a home and it's almost too hard. Shoot it and it becomes more crystalline, beautiful too.
Ct crunch is happiness. Perfect for blues, garage, even hard rock. However, you have to push a little more about the knobs. I put on my house 2. When you have the opportunity, we must increase the volume and the temperature's rising! Amazing!
I use it for more than two years. I can not give an opinion on the report qualitprix is my deuxime amp, and I am no related qualitprix. But I bought it for 1000 euros and I think it's worth.
I would do certainly did!
