Fender Super-Sonic amplifiers are the favorite tool of pro guitarists in many different musical genres who love to create glorious Fender clean tones, and expressive modern high gain tones”with one no-nonsense tube amp.
The Vintage channel on the 60W Fender Super-Sonic 60 tube amp head is based on two legendary Fender favorites, and the awesome Burn channel ignites musical inspiration with overdrive flavors ranging from bluesy to flame-throwing. The Fender Super-Sonic 60 amp head has been tweaked for increased bass response and fatter tone, and its heavily saturated tube overdrive and sustain can be fine tuned without masking the tonal character of your guitar. And by popular demand, the Fender Super-Sonic 60W amp head is available in two classic cosmetic treatments: Black/Silver, and iconic 1961 Blonde/Oxblood look with glorious ivory knobs and flowing Fender logo on each front panel.
The Fender amp head's Vintage channel contains pre-gain tone controls and two switchable voices, and the Burn channel contains dual gain controls and post-gain EQ, allowing tonal experimentation. Other features on the Fender Super-Sonic amp head include Ivory "radio" knobs; and a 3-button footswitch for Channel, Fat, Effects Loop. It mates perfectly with the Fender Super-Sonic 60 2x12 enclosure.

I'm old-school, with roots going back to the '60s (think Showman or Twin Reverb). I was looking for a guitar amp that can handle different styles while retaining its underlying character. The Super-Sonic is the perfect solution. The Vintage channel gives me two great yet distinct sounds to use for rock, jazz or even Surf if I want. While I'm not a fan of over-driven amps, the Burn channel will be adequate for some rock and blues gigs. The switch-able effects loop gives an added measure of flexibility.
I've been a big Fender fan since my wee years in the 60's. I've owned and played through the Fender Super Sonic, Fender Twin, Super Reverb, Concert, Bassman & Bassman head, as well as a little Frontman 24R practice amp. The Super Sonic is reminisect of the early Bassman head. The vintage channel delivers the a sweet warm tone unrivaled by it's competitors. That tone is what I've used to define my sound. Although I don't use a lot of overdrive when I do look for a rippin bluesy sound I use the burn channel. I've used a variety of speaker cabinets with this head and never been disappointed. This is a great head that gives you true tube strength to bring your music to life.
I have been a touring musician for about 5 years and a guitar player for 10 years. I have played on a lot of Fender amps from solid state FM series to the Hot Rod series. Mainly I play two different genres, metal and indie/punk. When I was on tour with my Indie/punk band a year ago, I came across this amp; it must have been an older one because the tolex was red. Either way, I convinced the guitar player in the band that we were on tour with to let me use it after admiring it for a week or so. I hook up my pedal board and I was good to go. The clean tone is very glassy sounding, and the overdrive has more of a Texas grit to it. I love this amp period. As soon as we got home, It is the amp I have been searching for forever. If you have ever been kind of weird about Fender amps and looking for the one to change your mind, this is the one.
I was at Guitar Center a month ago and fell in love with this amp. I kept coming back until finally I decided to make a move. I put my Mesa Triple Rectifier on craigslist and went and bought this one. I don't regret it at all. I've had it for about 2 weeks now and just can't get over how great it sounds. It seems pretty durable but I haven't taken it anywhere yet. It's very versatile and I would recommend it over any other head under $3,000.
I used to play through an early 70's Fender Bassman head, with B-52 4X12, back in the day, and the Super-Sonic gives that same low-end kick, and clean high end. I play it through an Emperor 2X12 and Custom handmade Orange Replica 2x12, and the sound is incredible. All I can say is 'Wow'... Why didn't I buy one sooner?!!!
