I take note of the reviews in Guitarist magazine in UK and value the reviewers comments and as such, bought both a Cornford Roadhouse and this Fender, based on what was said (not at same time!!). Yes this is all classic Fender tone and glad it is as I really wanted a clean Blackface tone and the Vibrolux is one I really like. In fact am loving the Vibrolux channel and with my Cool Cat Vibe, I get some wonderful 60's classic sounds. that just echo out from the large spacious cab.I wasn't after Metal-burn!, but the Burn channel offers up an array of classic rock tones that have you going from all out Stones to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kossoff to Kiss...Oh and to avoid confusion - The Bassman channel is based on a '66 NOT A TWEED! Perhaps for some, the V30 speaker is a shade dark for some Fender country-clean fans, but I have an Eminence Cannabis Rex I may try in an external cab and see how that works out. Oh and contrary to what is said of many big Fenders, you can dial-in bedroom level tones here quite easily. I got a super(sonic!) deal on mine and there is something gratifying in knowing should you ever get to play a big stage - this 10 tube powerhouse will be just the ticket! This is a beauty of an amp and sad it is being revamped down into a piddly 22 watt shadow. This amp deserves more recognition and respect...Owned mine from new for 1 year. Ungigged.

I have used and gigged with many amps over my 25+ years of playing... And I've finally found the amp I can settle on to define my own personal tone. This amplifier (on all channels) is very open, transparent and responsive. It hides nothing, and will make you a better musician because you can actually hear and "feel" everything you play through it. There is no "mush" to hide behind. This amp also gives you tons of sustain. I was used to adding deiberate amounts of delay and echo to my sounds to "liven up" my tone, but with this amp all I need to do is set the 'verb around 3... wow! It has let me simpilfy my live steup down to just 4 essential pedals and now I can concentrate on playing and expressing myself through the guitar instead of "tapdancing."
There is a huge tonal shift between the vibroluxe and bassman settings on the clean side of the amp. I have found that I need to set the eq in a position that is a good compromise for both channels (otherwise the bassman channel will get way boomy). Then with those two channels I just let the amp speak for itself. It lets me know which one to use for a certain song... Vibroluxe does best for funk songs, while the bassman does great for chording and slower rhythms.
The burn channel is fantastic! I've never heard a great distortion sound out of a Fender amp without a boost or overdrive pedal in front of it (except maybe a Hot Rod DeVille) but this amp really shines! With the dual gain stages and post-eq you can really shape your tone to fit your personality and playing style. I think the people who say negatave things about the burn channel on this amp need to just spend more time with it. I've also read many reviews that complain about the lack of bass response, and Fender even changed the amp a few years ago adding a bassier tone circuit (Super Sonic 60). However, I don't see how that was necessary. This amp has plenty of low end, and I honestly don't think I need any more. I play in a 3 piece band, and this amp compliments the bass nicely. More low end would just make the overall sound muddy.

Overall, this amp is just a dream realized, and I won't be parting with it. Every time I play through it I hear something new. It's like a breath of fresh air.
Excellent cleans (2 voicings that are footswitchable!!!) and the best distorted tone I've ever heard out of a Fender Amp that didn't require a stompbox.

Two effects loops, one that is footswitchable with gain controls.

Solid build quality, made in USA(!), comes with footswitch, and has built-in tiltback arms.
Beautiful piece of American art... I have the cream/oxblood one. Built to withstand years of schlepping it around from gig to gig, this amp will probably outlive me. I plan on using it forever.
Totally worth every penny... I traded a Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe on Craigslist for mine.

What can one add ?

By Mike eCee

from San Francisco Bay Area

See all my reviews

Browsing the Fender Website I first saw the Supersonic 112 and was impressed. Then to get some unbiased information I started reading the reviews, next step... try it out. WOW! played it for about 2 hours in the store. Went back home and read more reviews. discussed the purchase with my wife "but you already have amplifiers." I convinced her that I NEEDED this amp. ordered it, and upon delivery was immediately impressed. My wife, upon hearing it for the first time said asked why my "other Fender didn't sound as clean" 'nuff said? this amp was a great purchase without regrets. While I have never played a 65 Vibrolux or a 66 Bassman, or be able to pick one out in a recording i can say i love how the Vibrolux sparkles, and the Bassman setting is my favorite - so... clean and wholesome ! Mrs. Cleaver would be impressed. still playing around with the Burn channel, after 2 months. I'm looking for that "right" sound... it's tough as i have found about 6 different Burn settings that i like. this amp can do everything. this was not a purchase, but an investment; it makes me want to be a better player !

Awe-Inspiring Versatility

By Nate--SOFJ

from Charlote, NC

See all my reviews

This amplifier is about as close as one is going to get to finding the proverbial "Do-it-all" amp. The two clean channels are amazing reproductions of the amp circuits they are modeled after (Vintage mid-60's Vibrolux and Bassman), and serve extremely well for styles of music requiring that classic clean tube amp sound (I.e. Country and Jazz). Throw in a splash of reverb to the Vibrolux channel, and indulge yourself in classic surf tones found on songs like Dick Dale's "Misirlou" or The Surfaris' "Wipeout". The burn channel allows the blending of two separate gains, opening a door of infinite tonal possibility. Everything from a little bit of crunch to Zeppelin-esque tones reminiscent of a Marshall, fat tones a la Stevie Ray Vaughan, and even higher gain sounds are a breeze to dial in. Overall, this amplifier has surprised me with its versatility to the point that it has become my favorite gigging and recording amplifier. Built like a tank, too. Kudos to Fender for a wonderful piece of equipment!

Almost had me on this one

By J.P.-Cem7o

from NJ

See all my reviews

My first purchase was about a month ago and I returned it a week or so ago because when you had the reverb on, it would feed back at any volume abover 1.5 It would always feedback a "C" note for some reason. I exchanged it, but the second one did the same thing the less frequently, and there was an audible cracking during rehersal in two songs. I returned the second one after playing it twice and got store credit. I am now waiting for the arival of a Genz Benz BP 30 2x12.

Most Versatile Amplifier

By Deflection Guitarist

from grafton, wisconsin

See all my reviews

First off, I dont think its fair for people to give reviews on a product if they dont have alot of time on it. You have to put in the time if your going to give a worth while review. Anyways, to the amplifier. *PROSI hate to sound like eddie, but honestly I am a tone chaser as are we all. The supersonic amp is extremely versatile doing wonders for alot guitarists. You can use it for almost all styles. Great clean tones and very smooth distortions. With the right pickups this thing will scream. I use this amp with a PRS CE 24 and get all the sounds that I need. I use the effects loop as a boost by plugging the send into the return and activating the footswitch button. It is nice not to have to stack pedals to get that boost. Also this amp has great reverb.*CONSThe distortion channel kind of has only one tone. You can scoop the mids and notice it but it doesnt get too bright or have too much low end. Though I happen to love the distortion from this amp, others may not feel the same. And on the combo, when you turn the volume past 3 or 4, it sounds a little muddy on the distortion channel. but the amp is loud enough to where you shouldnt have to turn past 3 1/2. Sadly the head version does not have reverb. Also the 2 covers on the rear of the amp are flimsy. If you bump them too hard they could possibly break. I replaced them with steel mesh and painted them black.*CONCLUSIONThis amp is very versatile. Great for many styles. Even metal with the right pickups. I can get almost any tone I want using my PRS. The supersonic has become my main rig replacing a mesa boogie rectoverb. The amp is honestly worth checking out.

Could (and Can) Be Better

By Timothy Lisson Timothy Lisson

from Saint Paul, MN

Well, all things considered, I'm pretty happy with it now, but remember, I had to make some changes. If it's really Fender vintage tones that matter to you, whereas the "Burn" channel means relatively little (or nothing at all), I'd recommend a different Fender amp.
Sounds great on paper: Blackface Vibrolux and Bassman settings, plus a genuine overdrive / distortion channel. The reverb works well enough.

This is Fender's stated attempt to have both classic and modern sounds and features into one professional amp.

I bought the combo, in case someone hasn't noticed that that's what this page all about.
I wanted to like this amp so much, but it has only one speaker, and it's a Vintage 30, which to my mind is not appropriate for an amplifier that claims it wants to give you vintage Fender sounds. Furthermore, the Vibrolux setting sounds remarkably thin, spikey and harsh, whereas the Bassman setting sounds too dull and dark. But all was not lost: I ordered a Weber Chicago 12 alnico speaker and had my guitar technician install it, along with Winged C tubes. I also had the thing rebiased (I bought it used). It still didn't sound all that good, but then I remembered that Weber says this speaker needs a lot of break-in time, so after turning the volume all the way up and giving the amp about a 45 minute workout, it now sounds about as good as a 1-speaker amp could be expected to sound. I suppose Fender is expecting people to buy one of their 2X12 extension cabinets to fill out the sound more. I'm sure that would sound nice, but at this point I'm not interested in paying for one of those, plus more for 2 more Weber Chicago 12's. Nonetheless, at least it already sounds far better than when I first got it.
I would hope to have 2 12" (or 4 10") speakers for this price. Plus, I had to spend a considerable amount of additional money in order to get this to sound the way I like. I suppose one could make the case that the Celestion Vintage 30 is for the Burn (distortion) channel, but the Weber Chicago 12 even works a little better in that channel, so I'm glad I changed that speaker. But unless the stock specs are what the buyer really wants, I have to knock it down in the value rating for the above reason. In fact, if you intend to change the speaker, why not get a used SuperSonic?

Perfectly decent

By Strat Lover-3mUEM

from Mount Vernon

See all my reviews

I was looking at this thing when I discovered I had to up my wattages to play with the band I had recently joined. I was not real impressed with this amp. It does a whole lot, that's for sure, and the clean channel is a touch above some others, but, like most "do-it-all" gear, it is just decent in all categories. I prefer to get a very dynamic, touch responsive amp with a good clean sound, then add overdrives for grind. It seems like the simple, low-knob-count amps have the purest tone, as most boutique amp crafters have found. Get a great clean/slightly dirty tone out of those, then drop a great overdrive in front of it. Tone heaven

The Last amp you'll ever buy!

By CMG.Stringbender

from San Antonio, Tx

I play blues, rock & sometimes even a little metal. This amp has the BEST clean channels of any I've tried, and I've played many. The burn channel is incredibly versatile and VERY responsive to pick dynamics. If you know how to use the volume knob on your guitar(I play a Highway One Strat)You can get three different clean sounds with just a guitar, cord & this amp. I often use a setting on the burn channel that allows me to play soft to get a rich clean SRV like tone & then with a slight turn of the volume knob on the guitar and a more aggresive pick attack it's screamin'. Then if you push both gains up you can even play metal with single coils. I've been playing guitar for 22 years & have never been more satisfied with any piece of gear than I am with the Fender Super-Sonic 112. If you love tone & need versatilty this is a must buy!

READ THIS...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I'm a pretty experienced guitar player but I still go into lessons to learn how to play all different kinds of styles and techniques, most of the time while I'm waiting for my lessons I'd go and try out some of the equipment in there. I've watched bands like mcfly and johnmayer use this amp live so I wanted to try it out. I plugged in, played, and never forgot about the amp since. It is by far one of the best amps ive ever played. I have a vox valvetronix half cab right now and that thing is really good to but this amp blows everything away. The best way find out how good this thing is is to go out and try it. This is good for metal if your not a crazy metal player, if your nuts like dimebag with distortion, get a pedal too. I love the blues and like slash style blues with distortion, thats all I play besides clean pretty sounding stuff. Sometimes I'll crank the thing up all the way, gain and all just to mess around but this amp is good for everything from average medal distortion to clean. GIVE THIS THING A TRY! You'll pull out your wallet b4 you leave the store!

Super-Sonic 112 combo

By Steve C-w6R3Z

from Dallas, TX

See all my reviews

I am a Fender amp user all the way, I currently have 4 Fender combos including this one and a 64 Super Reverb. I bought this amp with high expectations and was impressed at first, and then I took it to a gig. The burn channel is excellent at low volumes, but the louder you put it the less impressive it gets. The clean channels are okay, but the Bassman setting at a loud volume (2 1/2 or higher) the one 12" speaker can't handle the power and breaks up terribly when vampin' on chords even with all the bass taken out of it. I'm hoping that when I get the extra 2X12 cabinet that it will better handle the power or else the amp is a total waste of money for me. I'd recommend getting the head and the 4X12 cab if you want to get this amp, because the current 1X12 doesn't cut it. Fender needs to make it a 2X12 or bring back the custom 2X10 speakers that can handle the load. COME ON FENDER!

Great All Around Amp

By Whippedbro93

from London, ON

I bought this amp about 5 months ago and i could not be happier with it. Having the bassman and vibrolux options in the vintage channel provide a vast array of tones to be had. One pet peeve that I have with the vintage channel is that there is a volume difference between the vibrolux and the bassman when switching between the two, but I have heard that rebiasing the tubes will help fix that problem. As for the burn channel...I could not safe enough good things about it. I play a gibson Les paul through it and it sounds awesome. It is very smooth and the two gain controls allows you to control and produce a lot of different tones. The celestion Vintage 30 is a solid speaker, although it doesnt have a lot of bass response, it does the job quite nicely. I have had no problems with this amp so far and if you are looking for a tube amp that has awesome clean tones with a sweet distortion channel to boot, then this is the amp for you. It's Worth every penny in my opinion. Fender came through on this thing, despite having dumped the bed on some of their other products in recent years.

Don't Be Fooled, This Is A Great Amp

By Yngwee

from Houston, TX

See all my reviews

This is a great amp. Don't be misled by negative reviews. Fender still makes a seriously great sounding amp. I've heard people complain about Fender overdrive, but I think they miss the entire point of Fender amps.The overdrive on this amp is superior to many. It sounds so good and it's extremely versatile. I really like everything from the clean to Bassman to overdrive to distortion. With some tweaking you can even get a little fuzz. This is a super good sounding amp with signature smooth Fender tone.The only negative thought I had about this amp is that there are so many tubes. There are 7 pre-amp tubes and two power tubes. Though the sound is to die for, it would be costly to replace 7 preamp tubes in a 60 watt amp. The only other negative thing I will say about this amp is that the volume knob is goes from 0 to bedroom level to band practice within .08 turn of the knob.Go get it if you want seriously good tone.

Great tone

By D

from MI

I've been looking for an amp with a good sound for playing country and old rock & roll. I bought a fender emerald model hot rod deluxe with a celestion vintage 30 speaker in it. I has great tone but not quite enough power for playing live. I bought the supersonic combo and a supersonic 212 cabinet and am overly pleased. I can use the combo alone or add the 212 cabinet for more sound. A great amp Fender! The Celestion vintage 30 speakers, along with Fenders reverb and tone do more for a telecaser than any amp I have owned.

With mods Spectacular !

I have had this amp for a while now and fooled around with different speakers and tubes I had in my studio. Bottom line, a new set of JJ power tubes(huge difference!) and V1 and V2 JJ's then switched out the V30 for a Reverend Alltone 1250 speaker and this baby is so sweet it will make you cry. The 6l6's this amp comes with are thin and harsh and the V30 is too flat and crisp to get the most out of this thing. I have a studio full of amps and this is my favorite now.

Great amp that can be used in many ways. Reverb is awesome. A great OD pedal with the bassman channel is healenly. You can use the effects loop as a boost pedal which is a sweet addition. I discovered this option in the manual. Covers all types of music.

Top quality Fender amp

By Geezerguitarguy

from Reading, PA

See all my reviews

Ask me a question

I'm running a mahogany strat deluxe and an ES-137 Custom through this. The Bassman circuit is thick as a brick while retaining plenty of sparkle - kicks butt for blues, rock, country. The Vibrolux side is squeaky clean and sounds raw until you get it on stage where it shines on clean funk rhythm chops or Tele lines. Both circuits have the nicest hint of compression and breakup past 2.5 on gain (which is loud). I've heard complaints the bassman/vibro volumes aren't balanced but that works for me - the vibro cuts where the bassman punches. The burn channel really burns - I don't carry a pedal for full saturation any more. Only thing I don't use this amp for is solo jazz - it's very focussed, but doesn't have a real deep low end.

I bought this amp and took it to a live outdoor gig. I played next to a guy playing an "evil twin" reverb. The tone of the bassman side out did his sound and the burn channel was like a Marshall with my Les Paul classic through it. It held up in direct hot sun too. People were complementing my tone to no end. The bottom lows come out good when cranked. I played it through a 212 Fender cabinet and boy did this sound even better. I have no problem with the vib channel being lower in volume than the bassman because it gives me 3 volumes to work with. Better buy this before they are gone and the price goes up to get one.

A Decent Amp

By Mike Sender

from Washington, DC

I've owned the Super Sonic 1-12" combo for two years now, and really like this amp. One of the things that endears me to this amp the most is the great honest tone I get from the Bassman and Burn channels. I don't care for pedals, so the Super Sonic is great for folks like me. The rock and country/rockabilly styles I play sound wonderful through the SuperSonic. The Bassman setting on the Vintage channel, though loud, clips nicely beyond a volume setting of three with a set of humbuckers. I play an Les Paul junior, in addition to a Les Paul Standard and Telecaster, and the P-90 on the Junior can produce incredible biting tones through the Burn channel with the treble around three and bass at eight or nine. Of course, the Telecaster sounds brillant on both Vintage and Burn channels, though I find the Vibrolux setting on the Vintage channel to be a bit too thin and piercing for my tastes. A gripe I have with the Super Sonic would be the reverb. Though it sounds great when it works properly, sometimes it produces an awful high-pitched feedback. I've had it in the shop twice to try and remedy the problem, but it still occurs. I think this may be specific to my amp, though. Also, the two panels in back are quite flimsy and cheap-looking.I've owned a Hot Rod Deluxe and a JCM 900 combo, which are fine amplifiers, but overall, I think the Super Sonic is the most versitile amp I've owned. I also gig with a Mesa Boogie Blue Angel, which is an incredible rock and roll amp, but the Super Sonic is definitely my work horse and I would reccomend it for any style, really. I've played a Rickenbacker 360 through this amp and nailed a Murmur-era Peter Buck tone. I don't know much about grind-core, but I'm sure with the right pedals, this amp can accomplish any sound.

Sweet tones

Just change out the crappy power tubes this amp comes with and you are good to go. This amp can hit all the classic tones with some new ones thrown in. Made with top notch assembly and parts. Put this amp next to the Hot Rod or DRRI 65 and those two look and sound like throw aways. Funny thing though, this amp sounds much better with humbuckers.
