Few names are more deserving of the term "original" than Fender. Not only did Leo Fender's company create the first mass-produced electric bass and revolutionize the electric guitar as we know it today, they were also among the first to pioneer the amplifiers that give those instruments their voices. Today, Fender carries a wide selection of combo guitar amps to satisfy any musician's tastes and needs. If you're looking for an amp that's true to the unmistakeable, genre-defining sounds of the Fender's early models, then you'll definitely want to start by taking a look at vintage-inspired all-tube amps like Eric Clapton's signature combo amps or the reissued '59 Bassman and Blues DeVille 410. The styling and sound of these beautiful machines is a throwback to the first generation of Fender amps, which are still often called the "tweed amps" due to their suitcase-like cloth wrap.
Fender also has plenty of options in the Champion, Mustang, Acoustasonic and Frontman series to bring you the road-ready durability of modern solid-state amps. These amplifiers are incredibly reliable, which makes them perfect for touring. The solid-state platform also offers supreme clarity and precision that you'll readily appreciate if you're a technical guitarist. These amps come in all sizes, from the humble 7W Passport Mini to the pulse-poundingly powerful Mustang IV V.2 and Acoustasonic 150, which both come in at a steep 150W.
Whether you prefer tube or solid-state amps, you'll also need to think about the sort of speaker configuration that you'd like in your Fender combo amp. Larger speakers will give you more rumbly bass, whereas smaller ones are punchier. Single-speaker configurations can offer a more cutting, precise sound, while multiple speakers add fullness. Taking all of that into account, if you like a rich, bass-heavy sound, you might like the 2x12 setup on the '68 Custom Twin Reverb amp. On the other hand, if you're looking for something light, thin and agile, the FSR Super Champ could be a better option with its single 10" driver.
There are a lot of Fender combo guitar amplifiers to choose from, so take your time in making a decision and weigh all of your favorite options. As long as you make a careful choice, you're sure to end up with an amp that you can be proud to own as you join the ranks of Fender amp enthusiasts like Pete Townshend, Billy Gibbons, Eric Johnson and Dave Keunig - and that's only to name a few.
