Clean has always been Fender's calling card, but with the Super-Sonic 22 combo amp, California's amp makers take a big step into today's arena of high-gain amps. This 22-watt all-tube amp serves up creamy, boutique gain in heaping helpings for overdrive aficionados.
Vintage Channel Houses Classic Cleans
Guitarists around the world know Fender for the sparkling and versatile clean sounds of its historic amps. The Super-Sonic respects this tradition, offering a Vintage channel based on the sound of a '65 Deluxe Reverb. Plugged into the Vintage channel, you'll experience pristine cleans that still retain the warm analog quality of the tubes. Volume, bass, and treble controls let you shape tones, and a Normal/Fat switch instantly thickens your sound, adding character to the lows and mids.
Burn Your Way to Modern Distortion
The Super-Sonic may pay tribute to the clean sounds of Fender's past, but this amp really blazes a new trail with its Burn channel. Here, the amp rockets into high gain territory, steered by two gain knobs. Gain 1 dials in the initial distortion, ranging from light breakup to all-out fuzz, and Gain 2 adds a layer of thickness and definition, giving you multiple dynamic options at each stage of overdrive. Treble, middle, and bass EQ controls let you tailor your tone even further -- scoop out mids for a modern, aggressive rhythm sound or boost them for classic punch.
Like the iconic Fender amps before it, the Super-Sonic includes a spring reverb channel for a lush and authentic reverb echo. The reverb is accessible on either circuit, adding depth to cleans or breathing psychedelic life into lead tones. An included four-button footswitch makes it easy for you to switch between channels or engage the fat and reverb switches.
