Back to Product Information
Sound: This amp does what it is supposed to do. The vintage channel vibrolux/bassman is close to the vintage sounds. I own a 1966 vibrolux reverb and the super sonic 60 is close but not as solid or thick as the original but does has a very clean tone that is very close to the 66 vintage.I would suggest backing off the treble and doing the same with the guitar tone. The bassman sounds good as do the burn channel which can be adjusted for blues to high gain distortion. This amp is very loud and for small venues (small clubs/churches) put the amp volume on 2-3 with guitar volume at about 6-7 is sufficient. Feature: Does come with a footswitch and cover and all of the controls are easy to use and the pedal works as it is supposed to. An all tube combo amp at this price is a steal. Definitely designed for the working musician or guitar player looking for that clean Fender sound. At 54 lbs. it is a hand full but pro gear is built to last and perform. Ease of Use: Very manageable and easy to set up and use. I took it out of the box and turned it on and the vintage 30 just sings. Good match up for this amp. I use a USA Fender Strat and Gibson Les Paul and both guitars were extremely expressive. I also use a Roland guitar synthesizer and it handles the extra sound very well.I do alot of home recording and styles from jazz to fusion to rock to classic are no problem. This amp is very well built and it can handle almost any style of playing. Quality: As i said, the craftmanship is excellent, the amp is heavy, the tolex and handle and even the control knobs are all solid. I will have no problem using this amp in a working band or at home and Fender does make quality amplifiers. Value: The super sonic 60 is a very good value for the money and it is a pro-tube amplifier. Good sound does cost, professional musicians very seldom use digital modeling amps, the tone says it all. Manufacturer Support: Have very little dealings with customer support as most of my Fender gear continues to work just fine. I would assume they would back their warranties and workmanship. The Wow Factor: Cosmetically the amp looks good.Fender amps have maintained the same shape and structure for over 40 years and they continue to go with what works. Overall: This amp should take me into retirement and beyond. Once you get the sound you are looking for, why would you want to change it. I think most guitar players would like to be recognized for having an original sound and the super sonic 60 allows you to pursue that sound.
