This is the Super Sonic 22 blonde combo amp by Fender. The amp puts out 22 watts of tube power into 1 Fender Lightning Bolt 12' speaker made by Eminence.

The amp has 2 channels: vintage and burn. Across the face of the amp from left to right we have: Volume, Normal, Treble, Bass, Channel switch Vintage/Burn, Gain 1, Gain 2, Treble, Bass, Mid, Volume and Reverb.

The tubes in it are 2 6V6 (power) and 3x 12AX7 and 2x 12AT7 for your preamp.

Basically Fender wanted to build and amp that could give your a great fat vintage tone as well as a high gain modern crunch.

I bought this amp locally used for $650, brand new they are $1000. I picked it up because I was looking for a small combo to gig with. This has plenty of power and tone I can live with.

I love the vintage blonde look and the cool knobs. Looks like I'm playing through a vintage amp, but in fact it came off the factory line probably less than 2 years ago.

The tone is great. It is like having a clean amp and 2 dirty amps in one. Classic sounding Fender reverb, not that new digital crap.

Really no way to improve. Maybe a little more power so I can get some more headroom on the clean channel, but that is just me being picky.

I'm always impressed with Fender's build. I believe this is a USA built amp. The blonde finish was applied well and the knobs are easy to move and read.

It's like having a clean amp, a dirty amp, a vintage amp and a modern amp all in one without any kind of fake digital modeling. I love this amp!
