Fender's Super-Sonic 100 tube amp head is designed for guitarists who want the inimitable sound of Fender clean tones plus expressive high-gain sounds in an all-tube, 100W amplifier.
The Super-Sonic 100 head has a classic two-channel preamp with Vintage and Burn channels. The Vintage channel delivers tones based on legendary Fender favorites, with pre-gain tone controls and switchable voices for shimmering clean tones derived from vintage Fender Twin Reverb® and Showman® amps, and fat, punchy tone reminiscent of 1960s Bassman® amps. The Pre and Master Volume controls can be set for pure clean or slightly overdriven tones.
The Burn channel ignites musical inspiration with overdrive flavors from bluesy to flame-throwing. Experiment with post-gain EQ and two-stage cascading preamp controls. Gain 1 provides edgy breakup and distortion while Gain 2 adds compression, thickness, and sustain. The Notch Tune feature lets you move the midrange notch for a variety of American and British flavors. The Super-Sonic 100 amp is capable of modern high-gain overdrive and sustain, but these characteristics can be fine tuned without masking the tonal character of your guitar.
The Super-Sonic 100 head also contains impressive extras like the Arena/Club switch, which provides 25W output. The Damping control on the rear panel lets you select Normal, Loose, or Tight speaker response. And the all-new Fender Automatic Bias control (patent-pending) lets you easily set your output tubes to the recommended factory setting without a meter or tools. The bias can be set hotter or cooler if desired, and almost any mix of 6L6 power tubes will work.
The Super-Sonic 100 head includes a cover and a 4-button, pedal board-friendly footswitch.

Comments about Fender Super-Sonic 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:
I just picked up my Fender SS 100 head. I ordered it in Blonde. This head is built like a tank. I had never heard the amp, but I liked the Super Sonic line. However the clean channel on those wasn't right for me. I ordered the amp based on a Youtube video reviewing the amp. The Fender 100 is more then right, it's a work of art. Simply put this is an extremely versatile amp for a club and wedding guitarist like myself. I have always loved Fender. Those other companies can try all they want, they will NEVER achieve the clean warm tone of a fender amp. Twin, Bassman, Super reverb, it can't be duplicated. That being said I could never use just a fender amp on stage because I needed more then just clean. Here finally is the Super Sonic Twin 100 that will give you a world of tone! This amp has power off the chart! It is loud when you need it. The clean channel boasts 2 modes Twin or Bassman, and they have it exact! The 2nd channel is a monster, full of any distortion tone you want. Whether you play ZZtop and SRV or Mega Death and Slip Knot this amp will blow away anything you put next to it. Marshalls disotion is nothing but feedback and noise! I perform everything from Dion to ACDC! From Aretha to Lady Gaga my band does it all. This amp is fabulous, a true gift from the tone masters at fender. I spent alot of money on a JVM410. I just sold it and lost alot! This is a great price for this amp with all it gives you. There are amps out there for double that will never sound as good as The Super SOnic Twin 100. Thank-you Fender, and Congratulations this amp will make more Tone history!
