« Great amp »

Publié le 07/10/11 à 22:12
I wish Fender would still make amps like this one. Fender seems to be turning it over to out friends over seas to build out small wattage amps anymore. We see them come from China and we see them come from Mexico. To which only a certain number of amps come from the States anymore. You see the higher end one and the old time classic still built here but small little watters like this wouldn't stand a chance nowadays.

This is a great little amp from the 1970's. This little thing has such a great tone and vibrato and at such an affordable price even today. This is a tube amp design which which had to 6v6 power tubes and two 12ax7's. This was a 6 watt amp and had such a vintage tone for days.

SOUNDS

The set up like most Fender amps is pretty easy. On the front panel you volume, bass, treble, speed, and intensity. You had the on and off switch along with two inputs for high and low inputs. Pretty basic setup and not much else to it. So there isn't too much to get in the way of tone here. You just plug in and go. Set you bass and treble accordingly to your guitar and then if you want a little vibrato just turn those two knobs clockwise until you have found your sweet spot.

These amps just shine with fender Straocaster or Telecaster but they sound just as good with your favorite guitar. NOt too much volume here but if you needed a boost these amps like all Fender amps take pedals better than anybody out there.


OVERALL OPINION

These amps were made in the 70's and now have been long discontinued. You can find them all day in the classifieds or on evilbay. I have seen them as low as $350 and as high as $550. So right in that pocket you can score solid vintage sounding tube practice amp. Not a bad price for an American classic.

would recommend this amp to anyone needing a good sounding vintage amp that is below $500 on a good day. Great amp for the money.
