iamqman's review"Modern and Vintage classic"

Fender Super-Sonic Twin Combo
One modern amp for the old school guys and the new players. This is a bit different then the regular super sonic amps. This one has a some extra features such as a biasing control deck on the back of the amp for self biasing. Nice feature to have. Along with the extra speaker included and a big bump in wattage up to 100 watts of power. You will pay a huge chunk of change to get this amp over the regular SS. The price of this one doubles.

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 distortion tone is thick and juicy. You get a very great modern gain tone that is unlike any other Fender amp in existence.

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

The best thing about this amp is the biasing feature. I feel more and more manufacturers will start featuring this in their upcoming amp product lines.

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.

At new these amps come in at around $1999. Not a bad price for the quality and usability of this amp. 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.

iamqman's review"nice tolex color!"

Fender Super-Sonic Twin Combo
This amp is the same amp as the black twin combo but with just an upgrade in tolex covering and grille cloth. The tolex is a cream blonde color and the grille cloth is a brown color that matches quite nicely.

This is a bit different then the regular super sonic amps. This one has a some extra features such as a biasing control deck on the back of the amp for self biasing. Nice feature to have.

Captain Osvaldo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Amazing Fender Amp"

Fender Super-Sonic Twin Combo
100W tube amp
• selector Arena / Club decreasing its power to 25 watts (to preserve its performance and grain at a reasonable volume);
• control "Notch Tune" to vary the range of mid frequencies to adjust the types of saturated unwanted sounds (American and English);
• control "damping", located on the rear panel, it allows you to adjust the response of speakers with three positions "normal," "loose" or "tight" as the type of game, music or sound you practiced;
• Fender controllable automatic bias can easily adjust the output power of the lamps according to the standards of factory setting or use your own settings for a warmer or colder without resorting to excessive tooling.

Among other features you will find: A vintage channel for clean sounds brilliant (from circuit amps Fender Twin Reverb ® and Showman ®) or thick and powerful sounds (from the circuits of the 1960 Bassman ®); saturated channel with two cascading gain to vary the compression level and thicken your sound while keeping much sustain, two speakers 12 "Celestion ® Vintage 30, a Fender Reverb lamp with long springs and a loop effects with level control (can also be used to boost) and a custom power Schumacher. Cover and four button footswitch included.

UTILIZATION

The configuration is simple.
A clear channel with the choice between a sound very close to the Twin Reverb, Bassman the other more focused.
The sounds are great, defined and precise.
Saturated channel is very versatile and very surprising for a Fender amp.
However I use a Vox Duel Overdrive pedal (lamp) to manage my overdrive sounds while remaining on the clean channel, it works wonderfully.
Easily obtained a good sound, however the possibilities are quite numerous settings, you can tweak to get his own SON.

SOUNDS

I have a JCM 800 80s with distorted sounds are no longer boast.
We rehearse at Studio Luna Rossa in Paris, this is where I discovered this Super Sonic.
Since I neglected my Gibson 135 in favor of a Telecaster, I missed a tool to exploit the Fender clean tones that excels.
A Telecaster on this amp is the perfect marriage.
Had to find and crunch sounds that are not saturated the highlight of Fender in general.
Super Sonic meets this need. It delivers consistent and saturations less raw than Marshall or Vox.
Our set is very diverse in terms of tone colors (Rock, Electric Blues, Funk, basically sounds inherited from the late 60s to the late 70s - Atmospheres ZZ Top, Hendrix, Fabulous Thunderbirds, Nine Below Zero etc..), this amp gives me sounds very varied and always believable.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year.
Apart from my JCM 800, I tried almost the entire range of Fender amps (Twin Reverb, excellent but demanding, Blues Deluxe, a little "soft" for my taste, Bassman 59, a bit "stiff" to play for me , Hot Rod Deluxe, a bit messy) Super Sonic is accurate without requiring dexterity of a studio guitarist.
Being mainly a singer, I needed an amp that forgives the lack of attention inherent in the fact of singing at the same time I do rhythms.

It remains an expensive amp (1600 euros at Thomann 100W version), however it may well become a benchmark for years to come.
