Overview

Fender's first true metal amp, the Fender MH-500 Metalhead Guitar Amp delivers a whopping 550W into 2 ohms, 400W into 4 ohms. The solid state electronics and heavy-duty flight-case style enclosure make this a roadworthy addition to any rig. The 3-channel preamp offers a studio-pure Clean setting, Tight Drive for the ultimate rock tones and Loose Drive for those bottom-heavy drop tunings. 16 onboard effects, including the new GATE feature for noise-reduction or muting techniques, allow you to craft your heavy tone to hard rock, metal, punk, and beyond. Also has a professional speaker-emulated XLR line out with level control and ground lift. Includes 25 sets of earplugs, so you know it must be loud! Looking for the complete half or full stack? The optional MH-412 cabinets are the perfect choice to give voice to this beast! (See accessory box on this page.)

Our Next Sound

By Sam Totman

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender MH-500 Metalhead Guitar Amp:

After being with dragonforce over the years, we've been switching up our tone for the different albums. Herman and I were prety much messing around wit amps and heads looking for a new tone. I played my Ibanez V through this Metalhead along with the MH-412 cabs, and it sounds bloody amazing. We started out with Fury of the Storm on the Loose channel and it was great. When the new album comes out, im sure well be using these for at least a couple of songs.

Punches you in the face !!!

Comments about Fender MH-500 Metalhead Guitar Amp:

Everyone told me, "Oh no you don't want that head. It's not tube and it won't have that warm tube sound." So at the risk of proving them all wrong, I ordered one and man am I glad I did. I've gone through numeous amp heads trying to produce a blistering deep tone. This amp has cleaner than clean tones as well as dirtier than dirt tones. If you can get the volume up even a little bit, it will punch you in the face. This thing is totally rad and better yet, nobody else seems to have it. Pure heavy metal all the way! Guarantee you will not be disappointed!!!!!
