Going With Classic Sound Of Fender Guitar Amps
Quick, what's the first thing you think when you hear the name Fender? Do you think Stratocaster? Well, if that's what you thought of, you're cool. If you thought of "bender", you may have to get off the drink a little bit while driving. Certainly, Fender may be best known for the super cool guitars they make; but there are other important products that they make too. And those have a cult following. Fender guitar amps would be one of those products.
Certainly, Fender isn't an iconic name in guitar amps in the public mind. Marshall would be that; or Vox. The great thing about Fender guitar amps is that unlike how Marshall is confined to the world of rock, Fender crosses over everywhere Â- jazz players love them; as do blues and country guitarists. If you have ever heard of how the unique sound of Fender guitar amps can win converts for life and you want to try them out, here's a quick primer to help you get started.
Fender, with its Frontman series of amps, goes solid-state. If you are a fan of the tube sound of the classic Fender guitar amps, this isn't the amp for you. However, you want to judge this model on its own merits. You'll find that they have a big sound, that they have character, and that they cost far less than your classic tube-driven products.
The Vibro-King is a monster-sized guitar amp that comes outfitted with quadruple 10-inch speakers, each one powered by a 60-watt tube-driven amplifier. While 60 W doesn't sound like much, you need tp multiply that by four. The amp comes with a built-in reverb (which is analog, of course). If you play surf music or the rock 'n roll that's favored in southern Texas, this is one of the best Fender guitar amps for your purposes. The Vibro-King is a kind of classic. And it's that for good reason. A skilled guitar player can mold it to practically play any kind of ton.e
The best-known Fender guitar amps have the a year attached to the model name. For instance, the '57 Series, are classic tweed covered tube-driven guitar amps that have been the rock musician's mainstay for decades now. They come in three different sizes Â- the conpact practice amp that's powered by a generously endowed 5 W amp, for instance. There's a 12 W middle range amp and a top-of-the-line one that has two 40 W speakers.
If you are bass player,the '59 series is what you feel at home with in the Fender series. Bass guitars need a bottomless pit of power to put out those earth quaking low frequencies that they generate. But this amp happens to be a favorite among guitar players as well.
Whichever model you buy, remember, that specifications can only take you so far. To really know what an amp is capable of, you have to play it by the year.
