The Fender Cyber Twin is one of the best amps on the market, however it is not the most user friendly amp. The Fender Cyber twin requires a bit of understanding before you can achieve the tones you are exactly looking for. The trim knob is supposed to be set to the spot where the light turns red at the peak volume of your playing. Note the trim will need to be changed as the volume or gain changes.There are quite a few built in digital effects in the Fender Cyber Twin. Some of the effects you wonder if you will ever use and some are very practical. The delays and tape echoes all sound great when dialed in correctly. The flange and chorus effects are pretty good but not as good as most higher/mediocre end stomp boxes. I think the phaser is weak and a little phony. There are a few other uncommon/weird effects that I am not going to critique because they will probably be interpretted differently by everyone that uses them. The effect on this amp that really shines is the widely customizable digital reverb. You can dial in anything from soaring space reverb, to a massive amphitheatre, to concert halls, to jazz clubs, to bathrooms. I have the overpriced but very great sounding Boss RV-5 Digital Reverb stompbox and I stopped using it completely once I got the Cyber Twin, because the amp reverb seems to do just as good.Overall this amp is a great buy. I used a sss USA Fender strat for this review.Note: This review is for the Fender Cyber Twin (not the SE).

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.

CYBER TWIN LOW PRICED FOR THE BEST AMP MADE

By Enjoy the ride 104.9

from Telluride, Colorado

See all my reviews

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!!!

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.

The worste amp I've ever played!

By Chris-mablU

from Hayden, ID

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!"

Working and Rocking

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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!

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!

This amp is what you make of it

By Marrs

from japan

See all my reviews

I have a small home recording studio and this amp has become an irreplaceable part of that. The effects are so good that I slowly started to sell my effects pedals off to friends and I havent looked back since. If your are thinking about buying this amp, just know that the presets are a little over the top, but you dont even need to know how to use em. You can build your own amp sounds from the ground up and thats what I'd recommend. Some people say they have hard times getting distortion, but its all in the combination of which amp, pre or post gain, and timbre filters you select but it has great distortion capabilities. This is the amp you make it. If it sounds bad at all its most definatly user error

THE NEW CLASSIC

By tweedblues

from New Jersey

See all my reviews

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.

This amp has it all!

This amp has amp, after amp, after amp. It recreates them to the "T". It is a great leap over the first Cyber-Twin. It has many qualities that make it much better than its predecessor.
