Get vintage Fender tone and looks with modern engineering.
Fire up this little 9-watt beauty and you’ll be storming the ramparts of Fender’s pure tube tone, with real, usable power and performance. With the use of dual "Hot" and "Cool" input channels, you’ll have great tonal flexibility when pushing that classic, crystal-clear Fender sound through the 12" Special Design speaker or through the 1/4" speaker out. The “Cool” channel is voiced from warm and clean to some slight breakup with use of the independent volume control; while the “Hot” side of this easily portable tone machine ranges from mild to wild.And tinkering with your sound doesn’t get much more basic than the Ramparte’s layout of just two independent chicken-head volume knobs, coupled with your guitar’s pickups and tone and volume controls.
Around the back of this two-tone chocolate-and-copper offering from Fender’s Pawn Shop Special line, you’ll find the tube complement of two 12AX7 preamp tubes and single 6L6 power tube — the heart and soul of that unmistakable tube-driven vintage Fender sound.
The Ramparte is ideally powered and voiced for use in practice and studio settings to be able to get rich tube breakup at bedroom-friendly volume levels.

Comments about Fender Ramparte 9W 1x12 Dual-Channel Tube Guitar Combo Amp:
I'm very happy with my Ramparte. A lot of forum guitarists will see the lack of reverb and tone controls as a lack of features, but for simple plug-and-play, it's very nice.
Yes, it's made in Indonesia, but compared to its brother the Excelsior, it's extremely well finished and constructed.
Having to remove 6 screws to change tubes will no doubt put some people out, but it's not insurmountable.
Bottom line - it looks good, sounds good, doesn't cost a fortune, and sounds like a Fender.
Personally, I find the lack of knobs to twist makes me focus on clean picking and fingering, as well as learning to use the guitars' tone and volume controls.
This amp will do both clean and dirty, but I'm more than happy with the "Cool" channel.
Although it has two channels, it is not a channel switching amp. However, an A/B pedal would fix this.
It's a keeper.
