60 watts of killer Fender tube tone, with switchable impedance, 2 channels, and a price too good to pass up.

Fender Super-Sonic amplifiers are the favorite tool of pro guitarists in many different musical genres who love to create glorious Fender clean tones, and expressive modern high gain tones—with one no-nonsense tube amp.

The Vintage channel on the 60W Fender Super-Sonic 60 tube amp head is based on two legendary Fender favorites, and the awesome Burn channel ignites musical inspiration with overdrive flavors ranging from bluesy to flame-throwing. The Fender Super-Sonic 60 amp head has been tweaked for increased bass response and fatter tone, and its heavily saturated tube overdrive and sustain can be fine tuned without masking the tonal character of your guitar. And by popular demand, the Fender Super-Sonic 60W amp head is available in two classic cosmetic treatments: Black/Silver, and iconic 1961 Blonde/Oxblood look with glorious ivory knobs and flowing Fender logo on each front panel.

The Fender amp head's Vintage channel contains pre-gain tone controls and two switchable voices, and the Burn channel contains dual gain controls and post-gain EQ, allowing tonal experimentation. Other features on the Fender Super-Sonic amp head include Ivory "radio" knobs; and a 3-button footswitch for Channel, Fat, Effects Loop. It mates perfectly with the Fender Super-Sonic 60 2x12 enclosure.

        Comments about Fender Super-Sonic 60 60W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I was blown away when I first tried this amp, and I still am every time I play it. I ended up picking it up that day, it has to be one of the cleanest amps I have ever played.
        The clean is absolutely beautiful. The Burn channel to me has the perfect sound of a nice heavy crunch, not too heavy not too light.
        I traded in a Marshall Vintage Modern for it, and when I brought it home to play through my Orange 4x12 it sounded even better.
        Unfortunately it doesn't have a reverb channel like the 22 combo, thats the only downer I have on this amp, nothing a reverb pedal cant fix though.
        Anyone who wants an all around great sounding amp, I strongly advise to give this amp a shot.

          Comments about Fender Super-Sonic 60 60W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          The clean channel has 2 different settings which I've found good uses for. the "Vibrolux" setting is your classic "Fender clean" sound; with my modded Fender Tele that I put a middle pickup in to emulate a Nashville Tele, I can get nice and twangy with this setting. I've also even plugged in an acoustic in this setting, and while harsh sounding right off the bat, it gives a good representation of an acoustic amp after tweaking the EQ. The "Bassman" sound is warm and PERFECT for pedals; my distortion pedals sound like they should when I play them through this setting. I've noticed that on my clean channel, there is a boost in volume switching from the Vibrolux to the Bassman settings (Bassman setting is louder), and it's hard for me to dial in the volume as I normally have mine between 1 and 2 and it's way too loud. I'm sure a professional could tweak this for me, so I don't consider it a flaw.
          The Burn channel has 2 gains which in my opinion act as pre and post gains; gain1 way up gives you a lot of grit reminiscent to more of a Marshall JCM800 then say a Fender Hot Rod, and gain2 will give you a lot of sustain and grit going into the signal after you've finished picking. turn them both up and you've just got a strong overdriven guitar. Again, it sounds like a Marshall than a Fender, but even still I wouldn't recommend it to players looking for that modern rock or metal tone. I don't use a lot of distortion so I usually have my gain settings at Gain1 between 3-4 and Gain 2 between 6-7. I find that the amp's sweet spot is between 4 and 5 on the master volume with those gain settings; I've only cranked it up past 5 once or twice b/c you really don't need to on this amp. It gets LOUD! I've noticed that once it gets past 5 it increases in volume a little bit and mostly compresses and immediately feeds back.
          The effects loop is the real kicker on this amp and why I love it for live settings. It's a tube driven effects loop that is footswitchable on/off when you're using the footswitch that comes with the amp. I've never used the effects loop for what it's really for; rather, I've just bridged the effects loop and set the gain knobs for it to make it slightly louder then my normal signal, and voila - I have a boost switch! this is something I had so much trouble with - there are plenty of clean boost pedals out there that do exactly that when you're in a clean channel on your amp, but clean boost pedals in the distortion channel of your amp only compress the signal or make you more distorted. I had always complained that I don't want to become more distorted or compressed when it came time for my solo - I just wanted my volume to get louder! Using the footswitch for the amp to turn the effects channel on/off does exactly that. No compression or distortion - it's just as if I turned up the volume knob on the amp!
          All in all, I've used this as my main amp for practicing, recording, and live settings, and in all arenas it doesn't disappoint. Because of the sheer power of the amp I'd say it's more suited for live applications, but don't underestimate the versatility of this amazing Fender product.

          Just got mine in and it is awesome! The Vibrolux channel has a beautiful clean tone, the Bassman channel is nice and punchy, and does the "clean overdrive" thing very well, and the Burn channel is very versatile for some very cool Lead and Crunchy tones. I play this through a Mesa Boogie 2x12 cab with Celestion V30's.

          blown away

          By Mr Guitar-YNDov

          from Sumner Iowa

          Comments about Fender Super-Sonic 60 60W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          I have a lot of amplifiers and have own more than I care to mention. But I don`t buy cheap. I do have a soft spot for fender amps also mesa boogie. I have a fender deluxe, mesa boogie, a line six a roland and a peavy classic 30.' I also had a 65 twin reverb. All are excellent amplifiers but none really had the sound that I was wanting. So I seen the super sonic and thought that with all the reviews that I read about it I would purchase one. It has to be the best of all the best of all the amps that Ive owened. I`m very particular of the clean sound that I want from my amp. This one has it .The cleanest clean sound that Ive ever heard. Mine is played through the 2x12 speaker cabnet. The best ever, The burn channel is O.K. but I dont use it much so its not a big deal to me. Yes the amp is expensive but its well worth it. I would give it a 20 if the scale went that high.The btm end is incredable. Very smooth. The best amp Ive ever played through. Buy one if you can afford one you wont regret it. Thanks again Fender. And the fact that you can have the bassman sound or the vibrolux sound. Both are right on to the originals There was a lot of time spent on building this amplifier. Its perfect.
