Overview

For all the lovers of that notorious Fender tube-driven sound, the company rolls out the Super-Sonic 22 22W 1x12 tube combo, pushing your guitar tone into meaty guitar-shred heaven.

The Fender Super-Sonic 22 amp offers 22 watts of guitar power, for punishing distorted sound with more dedicated tone and bass frequency. With two channels and a handful of stellar tubes, your guitar tone will instantly be taken to new heights of sound barrier-shaking guitar tone.

The Fender Super-Sonic 22 delivers this versatility with the organic feel and moderate output power of the legendary Deluxe Reverb amp, perfect for most stage and studio applications. The Vintage channel on the tube amp delivers pure, unmistakable Fender tone, and the awesome Burn channel ignites musical inspiration with overdrive flavors ranging from bluesy to flame-throwing. And while the Fender Super-Sonic 22 is capable of heavily saturated tube distortion and sustain, it never masks the tonal character of your guitar. Offered in classic Black/Silver or iconic 1961 Blonde/Oxblood cosmetic treatment; both Fender amp versions include ivory "radio" knobs and flowing 1960s script logo.

It sounds like you might have a problem with that particular unit. I got my Super Sonic 22 two days ago and it sounds great. I have played every current production Fender tube amp except the Vibro King, Vibroverb and the new Super Sonic 60 and would say if you�ۡ���re comparing amps without any modifications just taking it out of the box and turning it on this is the best amp fender makes. This is a killer amp with a lot of personality. Advertising says it�ۡ���s sort of a combination of the older super sonic and a deluxe reverb, sort of ironic that I would buy it as these are two fender amps that I always felt were some of the biggest disappointments from Fender. What surprised me is that it sounds way better than a DDRI reissue. Compared to the DRRI the Super Sonic 22 sounds bigger and richer sounding, has more chime, more punch and is louder (sounds about as loud as my 40 watt 68 Vibrolux). The fat switch replaces the Vibrolux/Bassman switch of the older supersonics. The strange thing is toggling the fat switch on and off actually gives you a really good vintage Vibrolux or Bassman sound, way better than the old supersonics were supposed to do. I stick mostly with the clean channel as you can get a good edgy growl by turning it up or hitting the fat switch if you want. I didn�ۡ���t spend as much time with the burn channel as I never liked the sound of multiple stages of gain as much, but I could tell you get some really good sounds off of that as well if that is more your style. Works equally well on my Telecaster as well as my Les Paul Junior. Compared to most other Fender amps the EQ controls are much more sensitive so little adjustments make a big difference. Because of this you will probably spend more time initially to find just the right settings. I�ۡ���ve never really been a big fan of Eminence speakers they always seemed a little too airy for me but this one even without any break in sounds exceptionally full and rich. Gives you a really nice warm 3-D sound.

I ordered the Super Sonic 22 the FIRST time and when it came in to GC, the power light came on but absolutely no sound came from it. OK. I returned that one and re-ordered the Super Sonic 22 for the the SECOND time. When it came in to GC, seemed alright at first but if I tried to add a little reverb, it squealed at such a high pitch it was unusable, which to me means that amp was unusable. Call me crazy but if there's a feature on the amp, I would like to be able to utilize it. So, I took it back and ordered a THIRD Super Sonic 22 from GC. Got it home and each channel sounded great. But... when I switch from the BURN channel back to the VINTAGE channel the POPPING sound was so loud and annoying that it, again, rendered the amp unusable. Are you kidding me? My bad luck or horrible quality control and build quality on the part of Fender? I applaud my guys at Guitar Center in Fayetteville GA for being patient with me and my desire to give this amp a try. I wanted to like this amp. I heard a lot of good things about it. But, after three tries, I have to cut my losses. It was a disappointment and a hassle.

        Love this amp! It's fourty pounds. A little heavy but manageable. Fits nicely in the back of my car. It's all tubes so the sound is warm and powerful. The switchable channels are awesome! No need for pedals but you can add them if you choose. Comes with a nice footswitch and cover to keep the amp nice. Joe and Rebecca were great at The Guitar Center in Mays Landing in NJ. Would highly recommend.

        Lets just say I've been around the block on the equipment side of things my ultimate set up ToneWise PRS custom 22 With a Mesa Boogie SOlO 50 halfstack. The recordings are Imaculate. I am a tube amp Pureist.
        I was playing recently through aBugera V22 combo with 12" woofer decided to upgrade ,
        after hearing a 68 Deluxe Reverb also 22 watts. I Love my gain and Have always had humbuckers in the bridge position after careful considieration and hours of Audio Internet research (drove my wife crazy). I decided on the Supersonic 22 watt combo. It makes my MIM Strat sound amazing .Played at a small club the other nite The sound was incredible at 3 on the volume . The gain channel is amazing I can get rid 2 pedals in my pedal train because there is plenty of the best overdrive and distortion Ive heard. The clean channel is very warm fender sound and works great with pedals. The reverb is definetley not as lush as i like But ok. I . If it had a master volume I would give it 5 stars . Thats how we get tube distortion and when playing live you dont have to adjust both volume knobs.

          Comments about Fender Super-Sonic 22 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          In my 40 years of being a Pro, this is one of the best all around amps that Fender makes. It is extremely well built, has exceptional sound, and is very versatile. It is also very portable, weighing in at 40lbs. The 1st channel has super clean sound, and the 2nd channel with two separate gain controls, allows you to set your distortion from mild, to wild!
          With 22 all tube watts, it has more than enough power for most gigs, and for larger gigs just mike it, and it will sound Great! The reverb sounds fantastic, and the effects loop comes in really handy, since it is foot switch controllable. The blonde and oxblood finish is stunning, and looks great on any stage.

            GC stores in my state don't stock this amp, so I had to commit financially to get my hands on it. I was hesitant to commit, but am very glad I did. The tones out of this amp are as great as any of the demo videos. It's the amp to beat for country, blues, indie rock and anything in between. Not 100% sure about its high gain potential, but the clean channel is amazing - and isn't that what pedals are for? I highly recommend it.

            Comments about Fender Super-Sonic 22 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

            I think the amplifier was amazing. The sounds you get out of it are outstanding. Great cleans and overdrive. Works well with pedals. It did notice that it did'nt handle my boss metal core ml-2 as good as I would have wanted. Maybe I should have lowered the level on the pedal, although it was a little over a quarter high.

            The reason I was dissapointed with this product is because of a hiss noise. At first I thought it was a bad guitar cable. I connected other guitar cables to it and no change. I even disconnected the guitar cable and still the same hiss sound. I really did like the amp and did not want to return it. What made me change my mind was that when I do home recording and had to stop playing guitar, the hiss sound would definately be part of the recording, so I would have to do as many editing to the recording as I would need to. I didn't want to create more work for me so I decided to return the amp. I thougtht of ordering another one, but I didn't have that confidence that it would be any better since I have a friend who has the same amp and with the same problem. He can live with the hiss sound, but I can't. For the money paid, I better get no hiss sound. I returned it and got me the Fender Hotrod Deluxe. I haven't taken it out of the box yet, so I am hoping my trade was worth it. If it wasn't for the hiss sound, I would have very likeIy kept the amp. I hope this review helps.

            Comments about Fender Super-Sonic 22 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

            I can honestly say that this is fast becoming my favorite Fender tube amp!! I prefer the clean channel with a touch of Pork Loin and Vintage Tubescreamer for the little bit of break up I like (all dials at or below 12 o'clock) at lower levels and the sound with humbuckers, single coils and especially P90s is mind blowing!! I get warm, rich, creamy tones and plenty of bite playing classic rock and blues. The dirty channel is good if you need to travel and/or have no pedals, but the clean channel with pedals is better in my opinion and the clean channel is vintage fender magic that will not disappoint. At 22w you can play a lot of smaller type venues and mic it as needed for larger venues. It's also not to heavy when it's time to move it around for gigs (my 59 Bassman LTD, now that is heavy but it also sounds amazing). This amp is pricey, but you get what you pay for and this could be the one and only amp you ever need!! Get one if you can and you will not be disappointed, Good luck and keep on making music!!

            I get the clean Fender tones I want. With both drives pushed all the way I get enough overdrive for my taste. I place a Gibson SG as well as American Standard Strats. Took this to the local bar for open mic night and had plenty of power for my need. The only issue I had with it was with the reverb. Anytime I put it above 3 I got terrible feedback. I called Fender and they said that sometimes the spring tank moves and gets too close to some other component I cannot remember. I moved the tank, without unzipping the bag, and the problem corrected itself.

            Bad Hiss

            By RANDY

            from Yukon, OK

            Comments about Fender Super-Sonic 22 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

            I've had my SS22 for 4 years and got one brand new straight out of the box. After the first 3 months of playing, it began to developed an annoying loud hiss (white noise) with nothing plugged in and all the knobs turned to zero. All tube amps have some low-level hiss, but nothing like this. It's so loud I can only use it for small gigs and can't mic it for PA systems or recording because of this impossible loud hissing it generates. I've taken it to two electronics technicians who were both unable to completely isolate the cause - except that it is generated in shared pre-amp stage. During the third year, I the peddle switch suddenly burned out a resistor in the switching circuit (R100), and it was back to the electronics shop a third time to repair it. Some people seem to have success with this amp, while others have nothing but problems. I'm one of the latter. Personally, as much as I love the layout and versatility, I would not recommend this amp.
