Fender G-DEC Junior Amp Customer Review
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
You would be hard pressed to find a better all-around small guitar amp in this price range that could compete with it. Others may have great modeling, or more output (volume), or selected features, but none that I'm aware of offer all the features packed into this little package like fender does.
Sound
As mentioned by others, the sound quality is quite good. It was designed for use as practice, not for live performances, its just a bit too small (output)for that. Quality sound at all volume levels, crisp clean tones like you'd expect from Fender, very good chorus as well as adequate distortion built-in. As most players would utilize a pedal or two, the built-in effects are of little concern.
Features
The included features are what sets this little giant apart from the competition; that and the fact that is a FENDER. Like others have said, its a band in a box. The selection of amp modelling available is impressive and fairly true to type. Key selection for the bass loops are a great feature as is the drum machine choices. The only limiting factor is the bass loops.
Ease of Use
Dead easy to use and change settings while playing.
Quality
So far, so good. Seems fine. What one would expect from a brand name like Fender.
Value
Truly a great value when compared to the competition.
Manufacturer Support
Haven't had to use it and hope to never have to.
The Wow Factor
Well done, Fender. You've done wonders for the small amp lovers of the world.
