Overall: Purchased the amp on 10-16-13 it arrived in a very timely manner from FedEx in good condition. Right out of the box this amp sounds very good and has a bit of a retro tone to it. This one has the Eminence speaker with light doping around the outer rim. I did do the tone mode with a 500K CTS pot which makes the tone much more user friendly. Then the power tubes were replaced with JJ 6V6S tubes and it now sounds wonderful. It is a keeper for sure.

Overall: I love my Fender excelsior pro in surf green. for 13 watts it is clear,clean and loud even with the stock tubes. I read about rattling but those were reviews on the older excelsior. nothing is rattling on this amp and i have plenty of tone to work with without any mods and ot tkaes pedals well right through the front. And thanks zzounds for the payment options!

Overall: This is a very good sounding amp and is very useable for small gigs or home use. The 16 inch Celestion speaker sounds very good even before break in. It has light doping on the outer rim of the cone. I did replace the tone switch with a 500K audio taper tone pot and that allowed better dialing in of the tone. Very satisfied with this purchase and Zzound is very good to work with.

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.

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.
