    I own the first Cyber Twin. I was playing daily and had to put my amp in the shop, so I bought an SE with the updates. First, I'll say that both amps are amazing in tone and features, but you must check your pre-amp tubes on initial delivery, and yearly if you play every day. Tubes are the life blood of this amp for tone and performance. If is sounds bad, one of your tubes is going, and I get nothing but raves from the heavy and clean sounds I get in all kinds of venues - large and small.I use both amps daily still, with the Fender Cyber Foot Controller and expression pedals. Between these amps and 2 Strats, Tele Deluxe, Les Paul, and a custom 7 string Ibanez I can get any sound I want - period. And, if you want to spice it a bit, try different tubes for different sounds. I run Groove Tubes in the original and Tung Sol in the SE. I can get any clean or heavy sound from the SE with no problem... clear highs and mids, and no mud in the low end. Better yet, the tone is consistent at high volume levels.Technology can be a bit daunting. Read the manual, as it can really help. Dollar for dollar, this amp is an outstanding value, as it can replace a fleet of amps. One note is playing a really cheap guitar through the amp can sound "tinny" and weak, but it is not the amp (cheap pick-ups in cheap guitars).Proof. I've fooled some local guitar heads that thought I was rocking a Mesa Boogie Mark V or Road King half stack, or a JCM 800, or a Super Reverb, or a Twin Amp. In fact, they thought they heard a killer half stack with an excellent quality pedal board set up (I've got tons of guitar gear) when in fact I played thru the Cyber Twin SE with foot controller and expression pedal and my Gibson Les Paul with DiMarzio's.... these people were floored that all of the awesome sounds were coming from a combo amp!

    I've traveled far and wide, played all the amps of the world, and I have to say the cyber twin se is the worst. I've played through the original cyber twin for the last 2 years, and have been very pleased. Everyone I play for compliments my tone. So recently, after reading the reviews posted on THIS website, I decided to buy this one, expecting it to be eons ahead of the original. I was seduced by the new features, such as a tube preamp and an improved noisegate. I was very dissapointed. The tubes are obviously of fender origin, as since they add a very very bright, tinny sound to the amp. No matter how I equed the amp, it just sounded cold and hard. This amp creates far more humming than it's predecessor, and the "improved noisegate" function is simply a button, that when switched on, does an excellent job of not only killing the hum, but killing the tone as well. It is so gated that you can barely play. The effects, with the exception of the stere tape echo, are far worse than the original cyber twin. This amp can't get anywhere near as loud as the original either. Franky this amp is a hunk of junk, and if you are interested in getting a cyber twin, look at the original. They are half the price, sound much warmer and better, and have far less hum. They look better to. The new amp's "improved cosmetics" look like the amp sounds: Cold, dark, and hard. There is one benefit of this amp. You can hook it up to a cab. That's about it. I'm not bashing this amp, I'm simply a seasoned musician giving my honest opinion. Play it for yourself. However, good luck finding one. There's a reason no music store I've ever been to carries them. Fender, I'm going to give you a quote my government teacher in high school always said: "Get Better!"

    CYBER TWIN LOW PRICED FOR THE BEST AMP MADE

    By Enjoy the ride 104.9

    from Telluride, Colorado

    I have the first series of Cyber Twin and have never had to replace a tube or had a repair, this is a tank, and I have moved many times. Tried so many other amps, nothing compares to my Cyber Twin, nothing. If it does not sound good it was always my operator error, the right pedals make the Cyber Twin unbeatable as an amp!!! I will soon buy the new Cyber Twin model for my sister. The tubes with digital modeling give prize tones always!!!

    Love the knobs, HATE the NOISE

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    The concept of this amp is awesome; provide an all-in-one LOUD yet portable STEREO guitar amp that will reproduce not only the response but the "feel" of several popular amps, AND provide versatile effects. Problem: it does not do that.It sounds like a Fender and feels like a Fender no matter what amp it is supposedly modeling.NOISE! If you just play in your living-room, or in small coffee-houses, it's plenty loud enough. As soon as you turn it up to real-world volume, the incredible NOISE of cheap-components and convoluted gain circuits becomes apparent. It's a pity... I SO want to love this amp. I love the format. I love the fact it is STEREO and has BALANCED line-outs. And those robot-knobs are the coolest feature ever on any amp...But it is JUST TOO NOISY for any professional to use.

    THE NEW CLASSIC

    By tweedblues

    from New Jersey

    I don't know what to say. This is my second cyber twin se and the third cyber twin I have owned. I really tried to dislike this amp because i thought i was supposed to. The truth is this amp sounds great and i don't think there is a tonal lacking even though it's not a true tube amp. Part of the problem was my fault for not spending the time to dive in the amp and take advantage of the timbre filters and such. I have owned a lot of tube amps and non tube amps such as fender blues jr., deluxe, supersonic, bogner alchemist, vox valvetronix, and the truth is the cyber twin se capable of sounding just as good if not better then any of these amps and it's no one trick pony like these other amps. I sold this amp a couple of years ago deciding I needed a pure tube amp. The truth is this amp is magic and the two preamp tubes seem to be all this baby needs to dish out the equivalent to tube tone. I am glad i came back to this amp because i have learned a few basic things that have taught me to manipulate this amp to give me equivalent tones to the amps i mentioned.This amp design came out several years ago but the features and tones in it are timeless. I sold all my other fender tube amps and i am satisfied i can get these sounds with the cyber twin with some tweaking. I don't think Fender can top themselves on the Cyber Twin Se.

    Well worth the money

    By rossfloss

    from California

    I have plenty of other high quality amplifiers including Fenders, Marshalls, Peaveys, a custom made Matchless Lightning clean channel with Dumble Overdrive lead channel head including quite a few others. The fact is, the Cyber Twin cannot match up to some of them in terms of pure tone. With that being said the cyber twin can still crank out some pretty amazing tones and is well worth the money. There are some tonal areas on the amp you can dial in that lack a little warmth and I think that is probably just due to the lack of power tube texturing. The solid state power amplification in this amp is still rather impressive though. Also, the Cyber Twin is extremely magical with a Vox Wah pedal for some reason. There is just something about it...

    The Best All-In-One Amp You'll Ever Play

    By JVas

    from Philadelphia, PA

    I own the first series Cyber Twin that came out, and I've played the newer ones frequently. In the almost 10 years I've owned this amp, I haven't had a moment of regret. Not one moment.The four guitars I use are an American Standard Strat with Duncans, a Gibson SG with EMG 85/81s, an Ibanez S-series with Evos, and an acoustic-electric Fender. The amp has more patches then I'll ever need, and the additional MIDI footswitch lets me instantly flip between the unique presets I have set for each guitar.The Fender settings are my favorites for the Strat... from clean and sparkly to "Blues Combo", which is the closest I'll ever get to SRV. The SG goes from The Who to Tesla to Gary Moore with the step of a switch, and the Ibanez can get as metal as you want it to be. What people haven't mentioned is how you can easily get a great acoustic sound for acoustic-electrics. It's a breeze.The only two issues I've had in 10 years are: 1) the wah pedal on my MIDI switch had a response delay on it I couldn't get rid of. I had to go back to my Crybaby... until Creed came out when I dumped the wah entirely! 2) getting a Marshall sound is difficult. I have a "Marshall Wall" preset that gets as close as possible, but if you are a Marshall purist, you'll only be 90% happy with the Marshall sound. I've thought long and hard about coming up with some drawbacks, and these two are all I've come across in ten years. If you want to invest $1,200 that you'll never regret, skip the hot guitar this time and get an amp that you'll grow old and gray with.

    Fenders Flagship Amp

    By Blues Guy-_SHPP

    from The United States of America

    This amp has to be the best amp I have ever had since I started playing in about '64. I have sat my Twin Reverb right beside the CT SE and dialed in the sound of the Twin Reverb on the CT SE. I could not tell any difference in the sound between the two, and I seriously doubt that anyone else could either. Also did the same with my Deluxe Reverb and the CT SE. I bought this amp when they were first introduced, so it's been a few years now. The only problems I have had is one of the tubes went bad earlier this year. I replaced it and the sound was right back where it was supposed to be. Some avoid this amp because of the learning curve. They miss out on a great amp because of their refusal to learn. I agree with one reviewer that said, "This is the amp you make it. If it sounds bad at all its most defiantly user error".That's worth repeating - "This is the amp you make it. If it sounds bad at all its most definatly user error". So keep that in mind when you read the other reviews. The reason for the lower score on value is because of the high prices and price increases of everything lately. I find very few things that are worth the price asked. So I don't buy much these days. That lower score on value also brought down the overall score. Other than the price, it's a great amp. And probably more worth the money than other high priced amps I have seen.

    I have had one of these for sometime now. It went unused for a while as I had other amps that had less of a learning curve. I bought it on impulse after watching a demonstration at a local music store. I will say now that I couldn't live without it. It is simply an awesome piece of techno wizardry, once we got to know each other. Coupled with the midi foot controller it is the best amp I can even imagine, and will do virtually anything. Anyone who doubts it's capabilities simply hasn't spent enough time learning how to use it. I can go to a gig with 200 different amps and on board effects in a twin sized package. And the power is great. From my perspective it doesn't get much sweeter.

    well....

    By Spiff

    from Western US

    It is loud for sure. The amp has enough power to break windows in your house or plenty of punch for even moderate size clubs. The trouble with this amp is that it sounds pretty lousy. Yeah the motorized knobs are quite the novelty at first but if you want good sound (especially distortion) get a real tube amp. It has lots of digital effects that are fun to play with but thats about the end of it. Save you money and buy a tube combo. At the price of this thing you could get a really great real-tube fender, vox, marshall or others. Way too over-priced. This amp is nothing more than a glorified solid state combo with knobs that move by themselves. Not impressive at all.

    WOW!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    WOW! Enough said. This thing made my Line 6 Spider Jam sound like a $39.00 amp. It is worth every penny. Every positive listing before me is true. I own 4 electric guitars and 3 of them are quite nice (Gibson Les Paul, Fender 62 Hot Rod & American Tele, Fender Mexi Fat Strat). All of them sounded better than I could have imagined with this amp. Of course everthing is not perfect. But the Tone, Tone, Tone, plus Versatility and Quality = Money well spent! Rock on!
