Product Description

Fender tube amps are considered the most treasured guitar amplifiers of all time. Popular models like the Fender Showman and Band-Master, the first professional tube heads on the market, are considered collectors items today. The Fender Band-Master VM amplifier takes the desirable mid-powered tube head concept to "Vintage Modified" performance by combining a real tube amp with a complement of essential effects. The 40-watt tube platform provides a foundation of great tone to build on, and the versatile tube preamp offers a wide range of tone and gain settings from world-standard Blackface Fender clean to aggressive overdrive with post-gain EQ. An all-new high-quality DSP platform adds reverb, chorus/vibrato, and delay effects with the convenience and "tweakability" of standard stomp boxes, without the need for extra cables or power supplies. The Band-Master VM amp (combined with its companion 212 VM enclosure) is the perfect head/cabinet rig for onstage versatility and big, fat Fender tone.

**Note: Amplifier pictured with speaker enclosure. Enclosure not included**

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
