Overview

Fire up this little 9-watt beauty and you™ll be storming the ramparts of Fender' pure tube tone, with real, usable power and performance. With the use of dual "Hot" and "Cool" input channels, you™ll have great tonal flexibility when pushing that classic, crystal-clear Fender sound through the 12" Special Design speaker or through the 1/4" speaker out. The œCool channel is voiced from warm and clean to some slight breakup with use of the independent volume control; while the œHot side of this easily portable tone machine ranges from mild to wild.And tinkering with your sound doesn™t get much more basic than the Ramparte' layout of just two independent chicken-head volume knobs, coupled with your guitar' pickups and tone and volume controls.

Around the back of this two-tone chocolate-and-copper offering from Fender' Pawn Shop Special line, you™ll find the tube complement of two 12AX7 preamp tubes and single 6L6 power tube ” the heart and soul of that unmistakable tube-driven vintage Fender sound.

The Ramparte is ideally powered and voiced for use in practice and studio settings to be able to get rich tube breakup at bedroom-friendly volume levels.

Features
  • Power: 9W
  • Hot & Cool inputs
  • Impedance: 8 Ohms
  • Preamp Tubes: 2 x 12AX7
  • Power Tubes: 1 x 6L6

Comments about Fender Ramparte 9W 1x12 Dual-Channel Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

although this amp lacks Eq and reverb,it sound great as a small combo amp. This amp if miked is good 4 clubs and venues or pure if the club or venue is not to big (then mic it). this is different that yo traditional tube amp (no standby button). It gets instantly warm and ready to play with. On the cool side it is jazzy when u play an arch top or semi hollow guitar through it. On the hot side u get a bluesy sound or rock crunch. But if u add a reverb or effects it works well with pedals Thanks guitar center 4 selling it to me then. It still kicks and sounds great 4 the size and weight and 4 a 1 x 12 and 9 w amp wow it is loud.

    Comments about Fender Ramparte 9W 1x12 Dual-Channel Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I really thought this was going to be the amp for me -- I've always been hapy with Fender amps, and lately wanted somethinbg smaller than the 60-pounder I'm lugging around now. I'd been pleased with the Vaporizer, but wanted something even smaller than that, and this lovely Ramparte was sure to be the last stop in sound & simplicity.

    Well, it got the last part right. I bought mine second-hand right here on GC, and I was elighted to get it ... until I plugged it in. The sound was dull, even when it was the bridge pickup on a Strat. !!?? A Fender Strat through a Fender amp should be ice-pick bright. OK, you say, an amp can't be bright and full; how about the low end. But it didn't have either. Basically it just sounded the opposite of full or breight. Too bad, because it looked great!

    Excellent Little Amp!

    By 

    from Temecula, California

    Comments about Fender Ramparte 9W 1x12 Dual-Channel Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    This amp looks amazing and sounds amazing. For only being 9 watts, it goes quite loud. I have it in my living room and I usually only have the volume in the cool channel on 3. The tone of this amp is extremely warm and mellow, almost relaxing enough to put you into a comatose state. If you are looking for an all tube amp that doesn't look like an amp and you have been chasing that warm tone, look no further, you just found it.

    Excellent tone and quality

    By 

    from Long Beach California

    Comments about Fender Ramparte 9W 1x12 Dual-Channel Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    There isn't much to this amp in terms of options but I'm very happy with the tone I'm getting out of it. I'm going for a dirty Fender tone and I found that if I attach an A/B box and run both channels at the same time it sings. Andertons did a youtube video review showing the A/B trick and it works as expected. The amp hardware and coverings have very nice detail and even nice to the touch. It looks like a much more expensive amp. It just has volume controls, so don't expect to change much of anything and of course it has no effects loop. I just play mainly for myself and mostly at home so I've detatched the provided speaker, which sounds fine, but because I want to drive the amp a little dirty at non ear piercing volumes I changed the setup. From the amp I attach to a weber 25W attenuator and use the 6db switch to keep the highs at the low volumes. From there I run it into an open back 1x12 cab that has an Eminence red coat FDM speaker. The FDM is key in that model, it allows you to adjust the speaker cone distance from the magnet letting you get an additional volume drop. So between the weber and the FDM speaker I can drive the amp actually way past dirty if I want and have very reasonable bedroom volumes.
