Product Description

Fender's Vaporizer amp evokes the 1950s-'60s Space Race, when the atomic-age world became enthralled with spaceflight and spacecraft. When the wild flights of fancy it launched permeated culture everywhere from film and television to cars, guitars, appliances and more -- everything was bright, colorful, and flashy. Garage bands blasted off with guitar music, and legions of musicians who couldn't swing pro gear bashed away on department-store guitars and amps.

The Vaporizer amp blasts you like a ray gun back to that exciting era. Affordable and out of this world, it would've been right at home aboard a Mercury capsule and down in the backyard fallout shelter. It would've been stumbled on decades later in some pawn shop corner by an unconventional guitarist with an ear for the distinctive and an eye for the stylish. It's the Fender Vaporizer.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fender Vaporizer,"
Overall: For the price, I dont think you can beat this amp. It has a amazing clean sound, and gets plenty loud enough for gigging un-miced. The reverb when turned past 12 oclock has a minor hum but isnt noticable when playing. I got the Rocket red and the finish is perfect. I have a roll of fender grill clot in wheat and installing it this week. I was able to get the amp with a 15% coupon so for $330 or $399 this one is hard to beat. I have a 72 super reverb that sits most of the time as I play the vaporizer....
Style of Music: County, blues

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Could have been better but overall not a terrible amp. Worth the ca$h I payed."
Overall: IF you are hoping for a good amp WITH usable reverb look elsewhere. It is a good tube amp and has great tube breakup, handles pedals well and is an amazing looking amp. Once you start turning the volume up the reverb disappears.. I'm very disappointed in that. I was hoping for a good amp to gig with (Playing surf tunes.) It has a great reverb sound at low volumes however, making it a great recording amp. Really a good value, just don't buy it for the reverb like I did. With zzounds payment plan it costs as much monthly to get a Deluxe Reverb amp so you might as well! I'll probably just get a 63' reverb and run it into this. Overall, a great tube amp value that looks AMAZING, has it's own kinda sound (not Fendery or Voxish) and once the speakers get worked in you won't want to replace them. Hopefully a billm mod comes out to fix the reverb circuitry. (Also some people seem to gripe about the vaporizer circuit not having volume control.) **RANT OVER**
Style of Music: Disco, death metal, funk, surf rock, you name it.
