      Fender Vaporizer 12W 2x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier (J00650)

Get Vaporized by the classic Fender tone.

Fender's 2x10” 12W Vaporizer tube combo evokes the 1950s-’60s age of the Space Race and blasts you like a ray gun back to that exciting era. The Space Race permeated culture everywhere, from film and television to cars, guitars, appliances and more — everything was bright, colorful and flashy. Garage bands blasted off with guitar music, and legions of musicians who couldn't swing pro gear bashed away on department-store guitars and amps.

Though it presents an out-of-this-world retro look, it houses an affordable, portable tube-driven tone machine with easy-to-use features and effects.

The Vaporizer hosts two inputs (normal and bright) and simple controls for Volume, tone and reverb. The reverb control creates full, wet reverb for moody "late-night" vibe and approximates the sound of playing in a tunnel, and the single-button "wedge" footswitch is used for selecting "vaporizer mode,” which bypasses volume and tone controls for full-strength overload.

Fender Vaporizer 12W 2x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier Features:

  • Power: 12W tube
    Speakers: 2x10" Special Design Vaporizer speakers
    Two inputs — 1/4", Normal and Bright
    Internal speaker disconnects to allow the amp's 1/4" output to be used with external 8O speaker enclosures

    Single-Button "Wedge" footswitch included
    Weight: 37 lb (16.78 kg)

  • Needs More Knobs

    As reviewed by Shane on 10/24/2014

    I wanted to like this amp, I really did. Here's what I didn't like: -The reverb sounded dry, if you can believe it. - There wasn't really a "clean" tone. If you wanted this amp to be clean, the volume would have to be just after zero. - Too bright. Even on the normal input. - The tone was either too muddy, or too bright. It was pretty hard to find a decent setting. - I would have liked to adjust bass, mids, and the treble. If I could have done that, I wouldn't be returning the amp. There isn't much to outweigh the negative stuff, but here's what I liked: - The looks. I mean come, on. No matter who you are, or what you play, it's a pretty groovy lookin' amp. - Vaporizer mode. I like to play loud and the Vaporizer mode gets the job done. It's an amp that gets the job done I guess, and if you're the type of player that goes for looks, go for it. Everyone else, ALWAYS TRY BEFORE YOU BUY.

  • Great amp for the money

    As reviewed by Bryan on 11/2/2014

    I was reluctant to buy this amp after reading the other reviews that have been posted on this and other forums, but when GC dropped the price, I couldn't resist. I'm glad I bought this amp. It does have only basic controls, but it is a basic amp; if you want more features, you should expect to pay for them. For a cool tube practice amp, this thing is perfect for me. Don't listen to the hype, if you like it, buy it.
