More about Super-Sonic™ 100 Head

Les séries Super-Sonic : Des amplis à lampes haute performance, qui vont droit au but et reproduisent le fameux son clair Fender ainsi que des saturations modernes expressives sans altérer l’identité sonore de votre guitare. La nouvelle tête d’ampli 100 watts Super-Sonic 100 dispose de plusieurs caractéristiques inédites pour une plus grande polyvalence sonore. Cela comprend un interrupteur Arena/Club qui abaisse sa puissance à 25 watts (pour conserver la superbe sonorité des lampes poussées à fond à un niveau sonore plus bas lors des concerts en club) ; un réglage Notch Tune permettant de faire varier la fréquence dominante des médiums et d'affiner le son des distorsions pour obtenir de nombreuses sonorités d’amplis typées « British » ou « American » ; un réglage d’atténuation sur le panneau arrière proposant 3 modes de réponse des haut-parleurs : « normal », « loose » ou « tight » pour une palette sonore allant d’un son riche et chaleureux à un son compact et très précis ; et le nouveau réglage Fender Automatic Bias permettant de régler facilement le bias des lampes de sortie selon les paramètres d'usine recommandés ou à votre convenance si vous préférez un réglage de bias plus « chaud » ou bien plus « froid » et ce, sans nécessiter l’utilisation d’outils ou de multimètres.

Ses autres caractéristiques comprennent un canal Vintage pour retrouver les sons clairs scintillants inspirés des amplis Fender Twin Reverb® et Showman® ou les sonorités grasses et énergiques d’un Bassman® des années 60 ; un canal Burn pour des saturations et des distorsions extrêmes avec une compression, un sustain et une épaisseur variables ; une réverbération à ressort Fender alimentée par les lampes ; une boucle d’effets avec réglage de niveau qui peut également servir de boost piloté par un footswitch ; des transformateurs Schumacher sur-mesure ; et des finitions Black/Silver ou Blonde/Oxblood. Elle se marie parfaitement avec les enavec filet s Super-Sonic 100 412 Straight et Super-Sonic 100 412 Slant. Housse de protection et footswitch à 4 boutons (conçu pour tenir sur les pedalboards) inclus.

Super Sonic 100--almost perfect, almost

(4.0)
Mikeoo on April 5, 2013

I've been a big follower and customer of the sonic line-up from Fender. In the past, I've owned a Pro-Sonic, Super-Sonic 60, and recently purchased the Super-Sonic 100. What I dig about this series is that it allows players to shape their sound without having to go DSP modeling. Tube/analog amps are much richer than DSP modelers to my ear.

I have to give huge kudos to the folks at Fender for adding some great improvements to the Sonic series with the 100 line. This amp features a bunch of new features to dial in even more sounds. The addition of the onboard spring reverb for the head is fabulous. The addition of a gain knob and midrange knob to the clean channel (showman/twin & bassman) are great and add so much more versatility to the amp. The addition of notch tuning to the burn channel is a huge improvement. Add the tube auto biasing and damping control are also very cool. Interestingly enough perhaps the most welcome feature is the switch on the back that lets you switch between 100W and 25W. the 60W amp was earsplittingly loud and many folks had theirs modified to lower the volume.

Though it certainly could be less expensive, the 100 is a vast improvement over the 60 (which was an improvement over the Pro-sonic). This a beautiful amp and recomend it highly if you have the means. I'm currently playing the head through a Marshall 4x12 Greenback cab or a 2x12 Jensens custom.

This amp is almost perfect. almost. What would make this perfect is if Fender added the tube driven vibrato channel (found in traditional Fenders). That would be a 10. (see details in the Overview section). I own a vintage '68 Showman with the vibrato wired to always be on. There is a certain richness this adds to the amp that the Super-Sonic 100's clean channel does not reproduce.
