Fender Band-Master VM Tube Head at a Glance:
  • Real Fender tube tone, with a modern twist
  • Plenty of tube power and a range of tones
  • High-quality DSP effects right onboard

Real Fender tube tone, with a modern twist
Fender tube amps set the standard for others to follow, and they're still a huge part of top players' rigs. Popular models like the Showman and Band-Master, the first professional tube heads on the market, are considered collectors items today. The Band-Master VM amplifier takes the desirable mid-powered tube head concept to "Vintage Modified" performance by combining a real tube amp with a complement of essential effects.

Plenty of tube power and a range of tones
The Band-Master VM Tube Head produces 40 watts from its 6L6-driven power section, making it loud enough for the stage while allowing you to turn up and take advantage of all that power-tube goodness. This amp's versatile tube preamp section offers a wide range of tone and gain settings &mdash ;from world-standard Blackface Fender clean to aggressive overdrive with post-gain EQ.

High-quality DSP effects right onboard
Fender built premium effects right into the Band-Master VM Tube Head. The onboard DSP platform adds reverb, chorus/vibrato, and delay effects with the convenience and tweakability of standard stompboxes, without the need for extra cables or power supplies. The Band-Master VM amp (combined with its companion 212 VM enclosure — sold separately) is the perfect head/cabinet rig for onstage versatility and big, fat Fender tone.
