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.

Player-Focused Features

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.

Features:

- 22-watt output
- 8 ohms impedance
- 12-inch, 50-watt Fender Lightning Bolt speaker by Eminence

zZounds Expert Review
This amp is perfect for those out there seeking nice cleans, with the added capabilities of much hotter modern high-gain sounds as well. This amp has some pronounced upper-register bite, and works great for nailing those delicate cleans on the Vintage channel at low volumes. This channel is based on the sound of the coveted Deluxe Reverb, and it really delivers. The amp breaks up nicely, with a tight crunch tone when turned up. You also get a separate "Burn" channel to dial in those really saturated distortion sounds, which makes this amp a great tone-shaper. More added features include a "Normal/Fat" switch for the clean channel, which beefs up the lows and mids for a much fatter tone, and Fender spring reverb too. This one is highly recommended.

4.5 out of 5 (17 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "It should be my last amp purchase..getting too old for this."
Sound: I had a Fender Deluxe RI 22 watter used in conjunction to my Marshall 50 watt Vintage Modern rig. I loved the clean of the Deluxe but I kept wishing that amp had some serious gain and distortion on another channel. This Supersonic 22 filled the bill nicely. I don't need or have the Marshall anymore. I can't wait to pair the Eminence Speaker on the Fender with a Celestion Vintage 30 Loaded 1x12" cab. 22 WATTS LOUD ENOUGH- I SOLD MY PEAVEY JSX 2X12" COMBO WITH 120 WATTS.. because Heck yeah it's loud enough. I and my listeners enjoy the tone more, now. The amp tone guide that comes with the amp stays on my amp..very useful. Feature: It has everything I need. I sold my huge pedal board of Distortions and overdrives and kept the Line 6 X3 Live,..BECAUSE I'M EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH THE DISTORTION CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SUPERSONIC. The pedal board supplied is great. Ease of Use: The amp comes with manual-how hard is that? I keep the amp setting placard on my amp for quick settings tweaks for different styles of music and different tones. Very useful.-Thanks Quality: I've owned Fender for 48 years From Blackface, Silverface ,Evil face, Red Knob,Rivera, M80's,with JBLS, WITH UTAHS, WITH JENSENS. THE AMPS ARE STILL SATISFYING SOME PLAYER out there in the world. This by far is my favorite Fender amp. My Silverfaced Super reverb is my 2nd all time fave. it took Years to find My favorite amp. Thank You Steve Vai. Value: ZZ ZOUNDS MUSIC WILL MATCH WHAT COMPETITORS ADS ARE BUT WHEN SUPPLIED WITH THE RIGHT INFO DOCUMENTING THE ADS..ZZ ZOUNDS DID DO BETTER THAN THE ADS. I SAVED SOME SERIOUS MOOLAH ON MY SUPERSONIC as with ALL my PURCHASES. THANKS ZZOUNDS..You Are My Mates. Manufacturer Support: I've used them- The Fender Corp. Support.. for my Strats.. getting Guitar info on my resale purchases. Very quick and courteous in response.-Thanks mates for the great info over the years. I've not had to use them on amp problems. The Wow Factor: Private on sex Appeal. I'ts a practical addition to my rig for sure. Overall: I would buy it again for all reasons.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A really nice, versatile amp!"
Overall: I got this amp because I love fender cleans and breakup. I had been thinking of getting Princeton Reverb and that led me to the Deluxe Reverb which led me to the Supesonic 22 since it shares the same clean channel as the DR so I thought it would be great to have the clean of the DR and the burn channel to boot. I was hesitant because there is a lot of talk on the web of reliability issues with these amps and of course the popping sound when switching channels etc. While there is some hiss, especially on the burn channel it's less so than say my AC15C1 or my Carvin Nomad. A clean power source is helpful in that regard and it's really quite when given a clean power source. It's got really good FX loop and the reverb is everything you'd hope to have out of a fender amp. For me I think the burn channel has some great sounds and you can get some very decent dirt without a boost pedal etc.. The two stages of gain allow you go from compressed distortion to thicker, dirtier tones. If there is one gripe I have with the amp it's probably the speaker. It's 22 watts so it's reasonably loud and I'd say you could get away with gigging in small clubs no problem. Anywhere a Deluxe Reverb works this will. However the speaker doesn't like to be pushed too hard. I ran this through an old Seymour Duncan 4x12 Cab loaded with Celestions G12-75Ks and, MAN, did that sound sweet. But when you start turning the volume up around 12 o'clock the speaker gets a bit unhinged. The nice thing is that the stock speaker does a good job at bedroom and moderate volumes. I noticed it did get better at higher volumes as it started breaking in but I ended up putting in a WGS Retro 30 which handles the higher volumes better. Overall Im happy. It's really versatile and while it's not cheap, it's not too expensive for what you get and that includes a footswitch and fitted cover. With the burn channel you can go from classic fender to pretty heavy rock(not metal) in an instant. I hope it lasts the test of time.
