Towering tube tone with genuine valve reverb and tremolo.
Fifty watts of pure, glowing, purring 100% tube power delivers unbelievable richness, presence, sustain, and musical distortion. Blackface-style normal channel produces ringing, warm clean tones while the thermonuclear drive channel proves that an amp by itself can be all the tonal enhancement you need. Add 4 - ten-inch Eminence speakers and all-tube reverb and tremolo for a full range combo that'll leave you awestruck with your own fabulous tone. 1/4-power switch for low-volume crankin', effects loop, and included 4-button footswitch.
You COULD live without it. But do you WANT to live without it? Do what you want. Your ears will love you for it.

I've had Peavey-Mesa/Boogie-Marshall-and yes, Fender..always in 2/12 version. This is the absolute BEST tube amp I've ever owned. My favorite things about this amp: BIG Fender sound without carrying a 4/12 rig. The 10"-Eminence speakers are fantastic and a perfect match for this amp! Great tube reverb & tremelo. Power to spare! I liked it so much...I bought 2 of them to run stereo with my effects!! (Guitar players dream). ENJOY!!
i love this amp for one reason... it's consistent. no matter what i play, this amp performs and allows me to mold the sound i want to create. the "gain" sucks. it's horrible, but who buys an amp at this price for its effects? that's what pedals are for. the 4x10 speakers are the selling point with this amp. if you like the sound of a 4x10 set up, you'll appreciate this amp. i have had problems with it. my guitar tech said there was a manufacturer defect. i'm still in the process of taking care of it.
The Fender "Pro-tube Series" is the best that I've played! I've had Marshalls, Mesa-Boogie, Peavey, other Fenders, nothing tops this amp! The sound quality inspires you to play. Everybody sounds good through it, not to mention the 5-year transferrable warranty that only Fender offers!! How could you go wrong? I like them so much, I bought 2 to run stereo from my effects. It just doesn't get any better! Thanks Fender for getting back to the quality, value & innovation that Leo Founded the Fender Co. own! Sincerely, Randy, Lake Martin, Alabama.
This amp is true quality with a great deal of thought put into the design. First, it's all tube---pure and powerful with a great tone. the Clean channel is classic Fender and the overdrive is real---it's sort of like having a 60's model super reverb and bassman all in one unit but with more overdrive control. A GREAT feature is the 1/4 power switch. As many of you know, a pure tube 50 watts with 4 10" Eminence speakers can peel the paint off of walls in a typical club. When you flick the switch, you get a 13 watt amp which is all you really need most of the time. The extra kick on this feature is that, at 13 watts, you can turn the clean channel to the 8-9 range and get that classic "natural" tube overdrive you use to get on the old Princetons, Vibroluxes, etc. At that level, you can back off of the guitar volume a little and get a rich, solid rhythm sound with a little edge. When you turn up the guitar, the old-time natural overdrive comes in really sweet and just curls your toes with great tone.If you want real distortion, the dirty channel does a very credible job of giving you a marshall or boogie OD if that's your deal. Good spring reverb and true electronic tremolo is included with a footswitch and loops circuit.The unit is heavy--the only downside, but everything else about it is outstanding.It looks like a classic Fender blackface and someone in the crowd would have to get really close to be able to tell if it's a new amp or a classic. At a street price of around $1150, it's a little high, but still well worth it. Overall, this is one fine amp.
Fender does it again, this amp sounds great. The 4-10's are bright and punchy, the clean channel souns great, and i dont care what the others say, screw mesa and marshall, real men use fender. The overdrive sounds good too, its not all hard to understan fuzz crap like on a marshal, its a thick blues sound. I play this amp on stage, with a twin reverb and the two make an unbeatable pair. Just to be usefull other great fenders are the; Vibrolux, Vibroking, Deluxe reverb, and twin reverb. However the concert sounds the best
this is a pretty decent amp, but if you are a blues player and looking for a great reverb sound this amp has it but the blackface reissue amps have a way prettier reverb. the tremolo channel on here is ok. again, the vibrato on the blackfaces is much better. tha gain on this amp isn't bad like the last review said but it sounds much better in conjunction with another overdrive pedal in your effects chain (i.e. tube screamer). if you don't want feedback though (which i like when i'm rocking out) but not everyone does, you really can't turn the gain up very high on this and so you aren't going to get a very good tone. overall this is a good amp with a nice tone but play some other fender tube amps first, make sure you get what your style requires.
I think that somebody at Fender has realized that we needed an all tube amp that does it all and this Pro-Tube Series has made a serious attempt at doing that. I only wish that the speakers were Jensens. For what it is though, this amp has proven that modeling amps are still a far ways away from that true tube tone. Congratulations to Fender for doing such an awesome job!
Normal channel is classic, pre-cbs black face. (I owned a blackface bandmaster and played a blackface tremolux, bassman, vibrolux, super and princeton before cbs bought fender.) Try "sleepwalk" with the tremolo. Gain channel brings modern developments to the black face without taking away from it.
Great sound and very loud, great highs, not many lows, but still a good amp. Great for ska and other up-beat type of music, and jazz.
This is one of the most diverse amps i have ever plugged into. You can go to the clean channel and get a really sweet blues sound, and then switch to distortion and get the most heavy metal sound ever. Musicians friend is wrong on the list price though, I got mine from buddy rogers for 60 dollars less then what musicians friend said their sale price was.
