« Sweet look tight sound »

This is the exact same amp as the black standard or the oxblood wheat brown Super Sonic. This one has a black tolex, but the front grille cloth is a black salt and pepper looking front. Not exactly the standard salt and pepper but a verion that seems exclusive to Fender amps. I have never seen this grille cloth on other amp besides Fenders. In addition the control knobs are also black to match the rest of the amp. Same great features and tone as the other two, but just a deep midnight style amp.

This is one of the very best modern amplifiers that Fender has put out. This is more of a high gain amp for Fender but still keeping the vintage clean tones they are so famous for having. The amp have quite a bit of features compared to some of their more vintage styled amps. This one has a fat boost switch and also a reverb to add a bit of depth to the tone. I would call this a vintage modern amp for Fender.

SOUNDS

I like this amp with all kinds of guitars, but mostly I like it with a Fender Stratocaster or a Charvel San Dimas or Socal. I like the light to medium tone of the ash and alder body woods. This compliments the nature of the amp quite well. The clean is very Fender sparkly and jangly. Then you go to channel two and having two gains is almost heaven. This is something you see on several boutique amplifiers. Suhr amps like the PT100 has a similar thing but theirs acts like another channel. This one just gives you deeper and juicy gain distortion.

OVERALL OPINION


If you need a good clean tone and a hot rod gainy distortion channel then this is your amp. The clean is remarkable and the gain has so much variation with the dual gains that is makes this amp a lot of fun to play.

One thing about this amp is the cosmetics of it are exceptional. The combination of the black on black on black is very sharp and I think takes a more modern look to the classic Fender amps. I think this look appeals to more non-traditional Fender amp users.

Having two channels and both are exceptional is a big bonus. I would recommend anyone to go and try this amp if you get the chance. You may or may not like the voicing but it is a solid amplifier.
