Fender Super-Sonic 22 - 22-watt Tube Head - Black
Special Order

Go Super-Sonic with Fender!

Fender turned heads a few years back when they crammed two classic amps and the high gain crunch of modern amps into one box. Well, they re-tooled the Super-Sonic, dropping it down to 22 watts, and giving this latest incarnation a fatter tone and more bass. With a passel of tubes and two channels, you can dial in your perfect guitar tone. The Super-Sonic 22 guitar amp head is designed for serious players desiring modern high-gain head boasts a 6V6 power section that offers up a Deluxe Reverb-style feel with moderate output. Like its big brother, the Super-Sonic 22 can conjure everything from classic clean to face-melting high-gain tones.

The tones you need for any gig

Fender's Legendary mid-'60s Blackface tone is considered the ultimate in clean by many tube combo aficionados. To which many would wistfully add, "If only it did overdrive." Well, now it does. A member of Fender's no-nonsense Pro Tube Series, the Super-Sonic head nails the shimmering vintage tones of the original and ups the ante with a smorgasbord of expressive modern high-gain sounds that'll strip the paint off club walls.

Huge Fender tones from clean to scream

The Super-Sonic 22 head's vintage channel is where you'll find your sparkling cleans and the thick, punchy voice of a '60s-era Blackface amp. The burn channel gives you everything from crunchy breakup to full-on sonic armageddon without masking the true tonal character of your guitar. Did we mention this amp is versatile? Of course, that luscious, tube-driven Fender long-spring reverb is onboard, ready for you to dial-in a judicious amount.

Convenient footswitch for instant control

Change amp channels and switch on effects with the included 4-button footswitch. Add a punch to your Super-Sonic 22 amp head's vintage channel by switching from normal to fat with ease. The footswitch also lets you choose which channel is active. A dedicated reverb and effects loop on/off switch give you immediate control over your effects.

Great Hot Rodded Fender Tone

My review is always based on the price of the amp. At $999, this amp offers a great boutique style sound and feel. Very warm, dynamic, smooth, tons of gain, lots of tonal variation, and dynamics. The clean is standard Fender awesome, very Deluxe Reverb sounding. Crank it up for great traditional 6V6 tone. The Burn channel is something else. It has a very Mesa Mark 1 type of drive, but with less of the Mesa Midrange and much clearer sounding. There is a difference between the Drive 1 and 2 controls. Drive 1 is bright high gain, Drive 2 is lower gain and voiced much darker. Between both of those controls you can get a WIDE variety of overdrive tones and feel. Reverb, as always, is Fender-tastic. Boingy and deep. The head is also fairly light weight. . This is a great amp if you play blues and fusion. Hard rock to metal....but not in the Marshall catagory. I use a 4x12 cab loaded with Eminence Red White Blues speakers, which are kind of like low powered, darker, EV sounding speaker. Very full, laid back mids, and tight low end.
Music background: years and years of amps, guitars, bootek products, etc.
